Whatever homeboy said on the beginning of this thread is pretty close to how I feel. But on the plus side, my wallet is taking a break from Joe's. I was angry in the beginning but now I'm chill with having the loose change to do other shit that interest me. Also, I don't do the Wal Mart and Target shit that much. Saves money on gas and store hopping. The movie toys don't do it for me but I'll get a few cuz I'm stupid like that.
Oh, spring loaded weapons are garbage. I said it, and what.

I've lost some interest. the fact that the 7 packs are now coming out in the fall instead of July as we originally thought (according to the GIJCC magazine) hurt my interest somewhat. I'm not interested in the movie figures at all. I've got the Stinger and monopoly game on order and that's it. I plan on seeing the movie, but those toys just don't interest me. It was the 25th/modern ones that are reminiscent of the ones I had as a kid that interested me.

YES. Completely. I haven't bought a Joe item since the Best of 80s pack. And my last carded figure I purchased was Wave 11 Zartan.
But I'm back with Resolute... well, just to watch and not to buy.

I have found myself starting to lose interest in GI Joe, but deep down I know that it is something I love as a child, and to keep myself still young, I continue to do what made me feel good when I was young. It is more of a memory than anything to me now.

My issue with the spring loaded weapons is two things:
A - figures - unnecessary costs
B - vehicles - whenever they put those spring loaded weapons on them they end up changing something on the original tooling. So even if you take off the spring loaded weapon, you have some hard point on the vehicle that ends up looking stupid or not like the original or the whole vehicle seemed designed around the spring loaded weapon, and with or without it, it ends up looking GAY!
If they would just make the spring loaded weapons 'COMPLETELY' optional, as in the toy isn't changed but its an add on and you are given the old tooled weapon as an option, then i wouldn't care.

Yeah, I don't really buy any of the accessories unless I really like them. I think they are just their to make the money, not for good purposes.
