I only collect the 25th line. I was actually into the Devil's Due run of the GI Joe comic book before I started collecting the figures. In fact, my first GI Joe was 25th Snake Eyes. I really like all the detail and the weapons.

I have some old 1982 through 1985 figures and vehicles from my child hood but now a days I only buy and use the new 25th figures. For vehicles, I am using all the new 25th vehicles along with my old ones but only if they are 25th line compatible.
Part of me really, really wants to buy more 25th combatable vintage vehicles that haven’t been made for the 25th line.
The other part of me is afraid that I will spend the money on the vintage vehicles only to have Hasbro announce a couple of months later that they are now releasing them in the new 25th line, and for 1/4th the price. In the mean time I am dying not having the vehicles I want. I wish collecting could be black and white and not have these kinds of frustrating grey areas.

I will always have a space in my heart (not necessarily my house) for vintage. However they have been on the back burner since the 25th line. I think moving forward for me it will be all 25th.

Just 25th, for me. I like the construction, proportions (aside from the occasional pinhead), and the sharper sculpting and details.

25th here, with a smidgeon of Vintage and newer vehicles that are 25th compatable (the RHINO is badass)

I do a little bit of both depending on price. Mainly because I have kept my vintage collection since childhood. I have over 500 figures from 82-94. As a child, I lost most of their weapons so it seems nearly impossible for me to complete them. So at first I started buying vintage loose complete figures that I didn't have and that went rather well, although no where near complete!!! Now I have turned my total attention to the 25th line because of availability. I absolutely love the line!

I only collect the 25th Anniversary line but respecting the original ARAH (82-89) characters/designs with some minor exceptions like the Cobra Bazooka Trooper for example. I have recently sold all my weird stuff like Para-Viper, Cobra Air Trooper, non classic CCs and SSs and others.

I collect Only 25th style Loose figures. 25th Vehicles and a few ARAH vintage vehicles if they are determined to work with the new figures.
If I had the time, money and space I would also collect MOC 25th and possibly MOC Vintage. I have no interest in loose Vintage unless I'm using the figure to make a Custom 25th version.
I also do not army build figures beyond five and I don't army build vehicles at all. Though I wish I could afford to have a few extra of the smaller ones like the Fang and Ferret etc.
Also I do not buy EVERYTHING 25th only what I like or brings back memories for me.
