Yes to some.
I would love a 25th Barrel Roll, Black Out, Scalpel, Mediviper and Burn Out.

Alot of the Figure Art was very good in this line, but the toys were for the most part just plain bad. If the 25th version reflected the card art and comics better, I'm sure we would all buy them.

I don't know enough about them to make an educated statement, but there was a reason I didn't buy them a couple of years ago, a reason in direct opposition to whether or not i would have bought recondo, ripcord, monkeywrench and some others a couple of years ago.

I see no distinction between any of the old lines ARAH, Spy-troops, VvV, Sigma 6, internationals, whatever. They are all part of the same universe (sort of). A good character is a good character. As far as I'm concerned all of those lines sucked, ARAH included. I bought those because I was 10, I would not buy them now. I would buy 25th versions from any of these lines if they were cool. There is no reason a 25th version of a VvV character would have to suck. It's not like they would make them out of VvV parts. I wouldn't want to see more versions of the same characters, but new characters are always welcome. I'd also extend this to include more unproduced comic book and cartoon characters, and even entirely new ones. It's selfish to try and limit the scope of the 25th line to just your own interests. It's ok not to buy everything, just leave the ones you don't like on the pegs. I only buy Cobras, but I still think they should make characters like Bombstike or Lt. Stone. Hasbro has to have somewhere to go with this line, other than just certain figures from a certain time period. And I think making new versions of these figures that were so lacking the first time would be a great idea.

Most of the VvV characters, a big HELL NO!! Any of the gene-spliced Cobras would be a definate no. The concept can go away and be forgotten. Which means, no Link, since the only reason Joes had a vet was because of the VvV concept.
Spytroops, yeah, those could work. I'd love to see the Stall family in 25th form (Barrell Roll, Bombstrike and Black Out). And the concept could be pretty cool too, having parts of uniforms that disguise you.
But for the most part, the cooler designs for the characters were the older ones.
Scalpel, Medi-Viper, and the Stalls would be about it.
