Good articulation, no t-crotch or fixed shoulders. Good sculpts. Usable theme wise with the other toys I have in the scale. For example, I plan on getting the new Wolverine line Deadpool since hes a mercenary, and I plan on getting as many Hydra Soldiers, Aim soldiers, and Shield members I can that Hasbro makes for the new Marvel line.

It has to be called M.A.S.K. and have a figure in yellow/black named Brad Turner.
But otherwise, I like all 3 3/4" scale figs. It is the perfect size for figures and well, it seems to be a popular format today.
I will be picking up Kraven from the Marvel line when it comes out to put the head on my Legions CC and have Crystal Ball. I will also pick up a few other figures to integrate into my joe verse. I agree that Hydra Soldiers would look nice next to Cobra troopers.
But one thing about the Marvel figures, how much are they going to be? If they are 10 bucks or more. I'll pass.

Joe-type articulation for me, which is probably why those upcoming Marvel figures are tempting me...
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!
Also looking to sell/trade Joes... Need Lego Futuron Monorail, Land Adventure, etc... http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...-t-thread.html

I would like a line of Jin Saotome custom figures at only $8 each.
Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."

2) $6 or under price point
4) interchange-ability of parts with joes

I've just started collecting the DC Infinite Heroes line, the lack of articulation doesnt bother me, dont mind the large hands either. I've been waiting years for someone to produce some 3.3/4 figures of DC superheroes and villians, ever since the Justice League cartoon was made.

I think it completely depends on what you enjoy and what you want to do with them. For example, my son, he is 7 now, got started playing call of duty 2 on the pc and has become enamored with world war II history. Once this fascination set in and he discovered there were world war ii figures and toys, he freaked. For Christmas he got a ton of BBi, and 21st Century figures and vehicles. He actually has them set up in his room now. There are a bunch of American's attacking a German garrison. He uses his Indy figures with them too. He has every Indy figure made and they never got played with until he got the world war II accessories and vehicles.
He loves Star Wars and GI Joe too. Star Wars is his favorite toy line. He loves being able to take a figure like Anakin and lead his clone army into battle. I'm currently trying to work on a custom jedi figure of him as a surprise.
With Joes he likes setting up huge Cobra bases and having the Joe's attack them. He does wish they were more realistic. He doesn't like that they don't have a common look in the uniform. So guys like Bazooka and Shipwreck usually get left out.
He does love that figures can "bend" as he puts it. He actually cried when he got the first wave of Clone Wars figures at the midnight launch at TRU. They were crap articulation wise, and, i think, to him that limited the possibilities in his imagination.
The 21st Century figures come with interchangable parts that allow them to do what even Joes and Star Wars figures can't do, so give those a look. Even the BBi figures have a few points of articulation that neither Star Wars nor Joes have that i wish they did.
