Blue Baroness - just not a cartoon fan, and didn't like the head
Carded Torch - not a cartoon fan, and like other version better
Carded Ripper - not a cartoon fan, and like other version better
Desert 7-pack - not my thing
6th DVD pack - do NOT need that many poor repaints
Target exclusive HISS (the blue one) - black all the way thanks
SRO Wave 1 blueshirts - have enough
Resolute 5-pack - Duke's the only one I like.
Otherwise, I've tried to get at least one of everything

I got Wave 13 and the last wave of CPs, but it looks like Hasbro solved the problem for me by not making anymore singles or CPs past those waves anyways... I'm caught up with everything now except for MISB sets of the new Joe/Cobra 5-packs (I opened the Joe/Cobra sets that I had because the boxes are hard to find non-effed-up).
I have one of everything carded, and open the ones I like, but was planning on skipping the Resolute guys that didn't have anything to do with the classics. I'm also not getting anything that's not based in the 25th Anniversary "classic"-updated spirit: the DVD pack of Super-Repaints (the crappy VvV or whatever set), and I'm not getting the Resolute 5-pack. I'm only getting 2 HoH figures (Flint and B.A.T.) because to me they are the best versions of those figures carded, while the rest are needless repaints, or STILL inaccurate (Firefly?). I wanted one Joe and one Cobra just to have samples of the packaging, and won't be opening any HoH figures, as I have them already, assembled from the various releases.
What will I definitely be buying? Well, nothing new besides the possible TRU Viper and B.A.T. 5-packs, and the Cobra Island 7-packs. The new vehicle wave, IF it indeed gets released, I'll buy one set to keep boxed.
Otherwise, I'm back-filling a few holes. MAY get a variant Wraith, and I'm missing 5 or so of the single-carded figures from Wave 4 that I already had from the original 5-packs, but I'm slowly tracking down mint 25th-foil-carded versions to fill in the blanks... The only thing that I WON'T buy are the Wave 1 CPs with Duke/CC and SS/SE since I consider them sub-par, bad repaints that I've bought a thousand times over anyways.
I really don't want to get the new Target jets, but they're really the only classic-inspired pieces I'm missing that's not been released, or WILL be released before the "hiatus" happening soon. I just happen to really really really dislike Tiger Force and Python Patrol.

I've passed on all of the DVD packs. I refuse to buy them even on clearance prices.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I pass on anything that isn't from the vintage line and I also pass on most of the vehicles and DVD packs. I couldn't find Quick Kick anywhere via trade or retail price purchase, so I have that DVD pack, but otherwise I have gotten all the original figures from those sets by trading or buying, individually.
Oh, I did get a Bazooka trooper, but he's the only non-updated vintage figure I wanted.
I buy one of each figure that meets those requirements, open it and save the packaging in star cases in case I ever want to display them on their cards.

i've stopped buying joes to keep moc for one thing, which costs too much and takes up too much space.
i'm a sucker for most things joe, but i have managed to pass up the things i feel are not up to snuff, such as any version of deep six or the greatest battles set (the figure choice is bad, the paint apps are bad, and what's with storm shadow's exposed holes in his torso?).
