Just buy the main 25th Joes from the Cartoon like Wave 9 General Hawk, Wave 1 Snake Eyes (or Pyramid of Darkness Snake Eyes), Duke, Wave 1 Flint, Comic Pack Beachhead, DVD Pack Lady Jaye, Scarlett and the rest. That's what I'm doing... I don't need the rest; just the ones that I remember from the cartoons when I was a kid.

That will be hard to do after seeing some of the others. I might just buy everything I see.
My borther is an avid transformer collector and i told him a month ago to find some deals for me. He called the other day and told me he obught a Rattler, Conquest and both of the Cobra Commander SD Comic Con figures. He said they are mine if I want them.

As you seem to be finding out, it's very addicting. After seeing the new versions, it's hard to go back to the ARAH figs from the past. I'd keep focused on the new line, because (if you ever decide to go back to them) the ARAH's will just be more plentiful and cheaper as people replace them with the new and auction off what they have. As long as the modern era figs and vehicles continue to flow, there's no reason to buy the old versions IMO. Sooner or later (as long as the popularity continues) they'll re-release everything worth having.

Well, I think 2008 was a huge year for these updated Joes and converted a lot of people to collect only the new stuff. Depending on the success of the movie, I think it's possible that most of the old ARAH figures will be updated in the next 3 or 4 years.
I personally think the new ones are much better than the old figures. The rubber bands always broke and the figures' thumbs would break a lot too back then. I haven't had one issue with any of my new Joes (although some on here have had instances where a joint breaks off unexpectedly).
Is Cutter your favorite character?
