They have brain washed Red Ninjas.

Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

25th Anniversary/Modern Era figure pet peeves:
- any figure with the dreaded "Duke arms"
- any figure with the dreaded "Gung-Ho arms"
- the poorly painted hair line on Spirit's head sculpt
- the floppy hip joints on almost every figure that uses the Gung-Ho waist and/or thigh.
- non-unique head sculpts for what are supposed to be distinct characters (i.e., Gung-Ho, Leatherneck, and Cutter all having the same head)
- the poorly scaled body on the standard Snake-Eyes/Stalker figure ... it looks like a boy standing beside the other figures
- poor quality control with early releases (I got a Gung-Ho with reversed upper arms and a missing stand replaced with a duplicate Roadblock stand when the first 25th Anniversary packs came out, the Quick-Kick that came with my DVD pack had two left upper arms)
- heat-molded plastic trays that require you to deform accessories and figures just to get them out of the packaging!!!

I'm not sure if this is just me, but my shockblast's head get loose when moved into certain positions. Again, it could be just me. Plus, I had a hard time finding a good gun for him(finally tried the mp5 that came with paraviper, which works pretty well for him as a lefty).

Any figure that has the Duke arms that don't bend at the elbows. The Vipers do suck as well as the Televipers which shared their body.
I also have issues with Blowtorch and his mask not being able to stay on.

if i had to pick one figure though that irritates me the most, i'd say Steeler...they didn't even think of trying when they made him compared to the other O13...they messes up his button up shirt, gave him rolled up sleeves, no black gloves or boots, no visor...and even his harness, although "accurate", is just crappy and sits very weirdly...

I don't like comic pack Duke and Cobra Commander myself. They look at me with that "Yeah, you spent money on us..." Look.
And AVAC, here they had this perfect chestplate from the original Zartan to use for his torso and instead they use the HiSS Driver's. Kinda sucks he doesn't have his parachute too.

There are very few that make me really really disappointed at Hasbro, but my "will not own other than for spare parts" guys are:
Serpentor V1: I've spare parts from 3 of these suckers, and not a single whole one. The DVD pack one is close enough for me, but the first one was just crap.
Major Bludd V1: The non-moving arm, I've said it tons of times, is just lazy. I don't care if it's a "nod" or a "throwback", there's no reason the arm can't bend. The rest of him is total crap too, even his paint job! He has flesh teeth! Come on. The desert version is probably the best and most solid "from the factory" version, but I own a combination of the DVD figure with the V1's head, with the teeth painted as my default Bludd. The biggest irritant to me, even if you're okay with the sculpt, is those damned missiles will NOT say in the backpack. I don't have trouble with the V2 or V3 release, but V1 just can't keep his missiles in the pack.
Leatherneck: I can't bear to open him, I don't see why he wasn't at least in his original color scheme, if there's only plans to release one. The Franken-combination of parts doesn't bother me so much as his arms and colors. I despise those slit Duke arms, and have replaced the ones on the major guys with them, but I've still got to fix Leatherneck (if I ever open him) and Falcon. I actually like the head sculpt for Leatherneck better than Gung Ho. Honestly, I fixed my GH head to look different, and plan to leave LN's head exactly as it came, other than painting the hat green.
Falcon: Colors are off, head sculpt is weird, paint apps are bad.
The "new sculpt" parts are fine, and I don't mind them using the Duke body, but the head and colors kill it for me. And he has slit Duke wrists.
Most of the 25th "failures" that I hated like V1 Bludd, V1 Serpentor, and V1 Zartan have been fixed for me, but Leatherneck makes me sad, since I want one without having to paint him.
