I keep my fingers crossed that kids buy into the movie line. It's what Hasbro is banking on, and I know I am not going to be spending as much once it hits (at least I say that now). When I first found that the only planned 25th as of Toyfair was the 7 packs I felt like finding a puppy to kick but I got over it. Hasbro has given us an amazing amount of Joes in the past 2 years, very impressive considering the collector base is much smaller than Star Wars.
With any luck maybe we will see them sneak out a few more 25th items before the movie hits....
Right now I am excited that I may be able to SAVE a few more bucks in the future(once I buy a ton of those 7 packs). But I am sure Hasbro will find a way to take my money.

Well see, I'm on the fence. I'm not impressed with the movie figures and vehicles and highly doubt I'll buy any of them. I don't buy into the mentality that I have to buy everything Hasbro puts out to support the line. I buy what I want and that's it. I was excited seeing the pictures of the upcoming 7 packs but was disappointed to find out they were internet exclusives. This whole year is going to be a wait and see. I'm hoping the vintage style figures continue after the movie runs it's course but I'm not entirely sure it will. It's really up in the air at this point. I am in agreement that the movie has to do well in order for the line to keep going. Me not buying the movie figures or seeing the movie makes no difference. If the new 7 packs of figures are the last we're to see of the vintage era I could live with that. I could walk away after getting them...it's been a good run.

I just dont see why they cant do movie and 25th/Modern Era figures, they do it with Star Wars, Transformers and Marvel, but G.I. Joe is suppose too confuse the kids!!! Im not buying that. I wont bash the movie line but I just dont see anything from it that had me excited or knocked me off my feet, I may pic some up maybe, but I was happily killing myself buying almost all the 25th/Modern Era stuff and cant help but be a little disappointed.
BTW I love Mask, and love repaints(PP, NF, and TF) are all repaints and I dont mind paying a little extra if I like what I see, if I dont like it I dont buy it, I dont care if its 3.99 0r 10.99

Im definately excited!! When we go on hiatus it will just be a time for us 25th newbies to play catch up. When it comes back we have a TON of guys that havent been re-introduced yet! Not only that, but if we get redeco's and stuff it will only be a step up from what we got..which was cool to begin with. New comic book, the CP's are getting better, the Sideshow 12" are friggin insane! And again, there still alot of guys we havent seen yet that we have to look foward too!.....Ummm, as far as Matt Tracker ruining the future? I dont get it....I absolutley love the idea of a crossover with a toy/storyline and can anyone say he isnt an awesome figure? From his head sculpt to his actual mask to the copter pack? That guy is friggin awesome!!!

i was excited then the "hiatus" took that excitement and lowered it then the cancellation of the last waves of singles and cps made it worse and now the online only exclusive stuff for anyting mdoern era just has me bummed out. Only thing in retail will be movie crap...really just movie crap. I hold no hope until modern era returns in full force to retail.

excellent news. I just wondering if the whole 25th line was dead or about to be dead. good deal.
I wish you all good luck and a happy future collecting.
For me is over since I dont have the extra cash. Maybe someday in the future I'll buy some figures on evil bay; hopefully they wont be ridicussly high price. Again I wish you all good luck and happy thoughts.
