I've been out of the toy game for several years, since I sold my collection during money-problem times...
I recently discovered the 25th line and have since been trying to convince myself that I don't need or want any of it, since I can't really afford to go all berzerker collector right now.
But on Friday night, my friend handed me a Snake-Eyes he had picked up for me...and that broke the seal. I went the next day and bought Crimson Guard, Cobra Commander and HISS Driver, all from Wal-Mart.
And now I want more.

Hope you wanted a lot of space in your wallet.

i did the same thing man, got out of it then got back in with the 2006 star wars saga collection. I talked myself out of the joes until wave 3. I went into target and they had every single figure from those waves, and i thought to myself "what are the chances i will ever see these all at once again". now i have every single figure from every wave and no money. oh well its worth it.

I started collecting over 2 months ago. At first I just bought a Viper because it looked like the toy that I grew up with. Then I searched online to see if BATs and Crimson Guard were already out.... I found the Hisstank site and it's been downhill since. In my opinion the Hisstank does not help your addition. It makes it 100x worse.

Not Hasbro approved.

Somethings to remember:
A good chunk of the figures will be re-released, or re-designed. So, if a figure seems difficult to get, over priced, or doesn't look like the original version sit tight.
Wait for reviews: Some figures fall short of expectations.
