I've been thinking about this, and I understand why people are upset that fan favorite Joes are not being made, but would people be happier with new VERSIONS of characters, as opposed to repaints?
I don't want another blue, standard CC figure, or an off colored Snake Eyes, as I'm sure most of you don't, either, but would you be happy with new versions?
Instead of a Duek with a screaming face, would you preferSigma 6 syle Duke in the Modern Era? Perhaps a DDP Storm Shadow (that's MUCH MORE ACCURATE) than another SS with a new paint app and one new accessory?
I ignore SE repaints, but I'd pick up a few new styled figures in a heart beat.

I'd prefer other characters being made. I'm sure most people will agree. If it's just between repaints and other versions, I'm ALL for other versions. Like 25th build versions of VvV Hawk or suited twins.

Yeah, I would rather have a new version of a figure than a repaint. I think it's important to acknowledge that G.I.Joe has a long history behind it. I want to see figures based off of Super Joe and Bullet Man. Sigma 6 to Eagle Eye Joe. They have the opportunity to present it to a new market. Kids today might have never seen SnakeEyes v4 before and I think they should know. -cause knowing is half the battle.
Throw in a little fun fact sheet about the character and you got a educational toy.
it's better than a Leapfrog.

I would want other versions. The repaints seem to be a cop out.

I'd rather repaints over a new sculpt for a figure that's been done to death. If they're going to spend the time and money making an entirely new figure for a character I already have 10 of, why not just make a character we don't have yet?

Well, with Resolute it seems we're getting new & improved (IMO) versions. Otherwise I'd rather get all new figs over repaints any day.

i'd prefer new characters being produced and by new i mean NEW SCULPTS..... not just reused parts from the existing figures (ie Leatherneck and Cutter)
as far as repaints go, i can go either way. if the repaint is warranted then cool if it is just another version to grab money from the fans then it's an easy pass. prime example...upcoming Storm Shadow, basic repaint with a the weapons from the Comic Pack version with Firefly.
the only repack/repaint figure i would get is if Hasbro re-released the Cobra Commander like the one included in the 5th DVD Battlepack. the figure is great but needs to be redone with the jump pack. i mean CC doesn't even have the jumppack in the cartoon and yet Hasbro sculpts a perminant parachute to the figure. what are they thinking ????
Cobra Commander: "My loyal subordinates will speak for me..You first nobel Destro."
Destro "Militarily speaking....It is only fair to say that Cobra Commander is a World Class Buffoon."

I think I would say new versions.
I like the concept of taking the good articulation of 25th style and going for looks from different time periods in Joe History.

Is this a trick question?
Though I thank Hasbro for what they have given us but,
"ENOUGH WITH THE REPAINTS!!!"
all this does is warm pegs. I much rather see diffrent versions of characters. I'm still waiting on the '93 "desert storm" Duke, '91 Roadblock (w/ new head mold), '91 Gen. Hawk, '91 Stalker, '87 Gung Ho and a bunch of others from 2002-2005
