For me, the vintage ARAH stuff looks like toys that a kid would PLAY with whereas the 25th stuff looks to be very much aimed straight at the adult collector market, meant for star cases and AFA boxes. I love the style of the ARAH line and while obviously the 25th line has much more detail and articulation, I prefer very much their vintage counterparts. For me, those joes are very much a part of my own personal history and are integrated with my life experiences. I am sure that when I open the 25th figures with my son in a few years, we will have a blast building bases and taking out Cobra installations. Who knows, maybe they will become special to me becasue of the time I spend with my son. But as for me, vintage ARAH will always be the top dog.

To all the people talking about G1 TF's prices holding steady, you should know there was a time for low prices on G1 TF's just like the vintage joes are doing now and that was years back in mid 2000 when Takara, not Hasbro began the reissues. I was there and scooped up a ton of deals. The Takara reissues killed the prices but over time most came back, these things just go in cycles.

I don't know what it goes for usually but I just won a MOC Low Light for under $20 shipped. I'm stoked because this is my first vintage carded figure since I started collecting again. Hopefully the prices stay fairly low.

the stuff i'm after isnt changing. if anything some are up. 1 example swivel cobra officers. during the summer i saw many @$5. i thought i could do better. past few months i cant touch one for under $12 or more.BATS are still strong. night force while not the 100 per some used to hit. are still high. high enough i wont buy anyway.
cobra ninja are way higher then i've seen them. i think 1 got near $100 a month ago.
i dont look at common stuff but know it is down.

25th line is not why older stuff is going for less, its the economy.
People can not afford more expensive things.

I picked up an afa 8.5 mamba for 85 bucks 2 weeks ago. Heaven on earth.
Alley Viper attached to the Strike Team Urban Division 82nd.
Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.
