I am curious to know if Hasbro will eventually do this or not because I just want my figures to look similar and I don't want to shell out more money for variation after variation.
So far I have seen fixed crotches on figures such as Beach Head, Firefly, Stalker, Snake Eyes (black & blue comic pack versions), Flash, Hawk, Breaker, and Torch. (I have never seen diaper crotches on Breaker and Torch in the stores, but the first images that showed up online had them.) If there are any other figures that I am missing here that have fixed crotches please let me know.
I am not sure if I should wait for fixes of the others, or just go ahead a buy up the diaper crotches when I find them. I have already returned my SE & SS comic pack with the SE diaper crotch for the fixed crotch version. It's a good thing I held off on opening it before I got the corrected one.
Right now I have all 3 5-packs, and I was considering buying one more of each on clearence to open up. I was going to get the carded versions, but they have not been fixed as well. I also have carded Zartan, Hooded CC, and SE V2 (I heard they are releasing a fxed crotch and black version of this later this year) which I wanted to return for fixed crotch versions if they are released.
Another thing that I have noticed was that Torch uses the same crotch as Gung-Ho. Torch has the fixed crotch, so does this mean that we will be getting a fixed Gung-Ho? I thought the only change that was made to him for the carded version was the removal of the anchor on his hat. I found this a bit confusing because my 1984 Gung-Ho has an anchor on his hat. I heard that the fans complained for this change because he is in the Marines not the Navy, and I guess anchors are usually related to people in the Navy. If that's the case then what's with the anchor on his chest tattoo? Oh well I guess you can't please everyone.
The real problem that I have with this whole diaper crotch vs. fixed crotch thing is that I want my figures to look similar to one another. I don't like how Ripper looks next to Torch because Ripper has the diaper crotch. This is why I have been putting off picking up Buzzer as well, just in case they make the fix. If they fix Ripper as well, then I'm going to need another 2 pack and sell off the diaper versions on Ebay.
Sorry for the long post, but if you have any answers for me I would apreciate it.

Don't worry slick, we're all a little long-winded at first :-)
In answer to your question about gung-ho, what I've read so far is that they won't be fixing his crotch. I think the whole crotch fix thing is a running change beginning with beach head, firefly, stalker and continuing throughout the rest of the waves.
Unfortunately, you might be stuck with diaper and fixed crotch figs. so I wouldn't go purging your collection on ebay just yet.

Yeah I'm thinking that I might be stuck with what I have as well. I was at Target today and came across Buzzer and Shipwreck, and I still held off buying them because of their diaper crotches. I really do hope Hasbro re-releases some of these guys with fixed crotches so that they look similar to the rest of the line from here forward.
