I really hate faces that are painted. Some looks like sloppy make-up applied or a blob of excess paint. I'd prefer non-painted face using the color of natual dye. However, painted hair is kool.

I agree 50/50 with the thread poster.
But the lame writing in the comic packs is right on the money. Why bother offering a comic? I'd rather have a reprint of a classic. Did anybody read the Storm Shadow/Firefly comic? Who ever heard of product placement in a comic you read AFTER buying the product??
And here's a good line from the same comic-
Storm Shadow: "Uzi time!"

#2- when hasnt Gi Joe used repaints and kit bashes? if i remember right, alot of the OG figs were comprised of re-used parts.
#7 i dont understand the Fang/Claw pilots. Kind of odd choices considering there was other pilots they could have used (like annihilator maybe?) but whats wrong with Matt Tracker. His paint schemes are the same as the OG one. I think the "homage" figures they do are great. Ninja Ku, Red Ninja, Pilot Scarlett, Matt Tracker, Desert Leatherneck.....all gold. I think its cool how they expanded out as a little nod to all the great stuff thats came out over the last 25 years.
Remeber guys its not just about the OG figures. its a celebration of all the cool stuff that has come out from then till now.

01. Diaper Crotches on many figures which makes figures unable to sit down.
02. Hands with very loose grips, the nubby hands. touch the weapon, and it falls
03. Elbow articulation which doesn't bend all the way; the inability to shoulder aim weapons
04. Cobra Stands with only 1-peg! Give them 2 pegs like the Joes!!!
05. Neon Colors on figures (Roadblock v2, Airborne, Trakker, Cobra Comic Troops Webgears, Neon Re-Paints)
06. Releases of Re-paints before Original v1's (Leatherneck)
07. The skipping of Important '82 - '87 characters
08. The lack of Female figures
09. Exclusives; online stores overcharge these easily by $15 >_>
10. Hasbro's sloppy mix & match re-use of parts without investigating the vintage figure to make it look correctly
I also agree there are more plus points to the line, and we are seeing bad points fixed here and there.
The #1 plus point for me is the Awesome sculpting!!!
