I haven't lost interest yet. I'm still hoping we get all the figures from "82-'89 revisited. If anything I've lost interest in collecting Star Wars.

I have not lost interest, just know there is nothing out there that I want. I am a sw collector first and foremost. The anniversary line got me back into joe's. I hunted down all from the first 5 years or so of the 80's line. I have a ton of my own originals from when I was a kid.
Then I started buying the new figures. I decided to match the new figures with my original counterparts. Then I bought a few extra really cool ones. I was very selective. The thing that sucks about the 7 packs is that I am going to be forced to buy figures that I would not. The good thing is that the figures look great.
I will pop in here once in awhile, but do not expect to see me often anymore. Oh yeah, I barely posted anyway. This site rules for joe's though. Good bunch of guys here.
This is what would get me going again:
Don't really want the last two, but I had them when I was a kid. There are a few others from later waves that I would pick up. But for the most part...that would finish me off
and a few other re-do's of figurest that originally sucked: steeler, spirit, gung-ho, grunt...etc

It is just the opposite for me. My interest has grown more.

I lost interest due to the fuglyness of the movie line. I hope it gets clearanced soon so that we can continue with the real reason we are all here.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

My interest has been going down slowly since wave 10, when the line started moving away from the ''classics''. It was the first wave with new ''expanded universe'' characters like Para-Viper and Bazooka Trooper. Don't get me wrong, they're great figures and I've bought quite a few of them, but they don't hold the same feeling as a Mutt and Junkyard, Blowtorch or Snow Serpent.
I've bought pretty much everything 25th thus far (and actually have multiples of quite a few figures) and I'm really looking forward the Cobra Island 7-Packs. But I really see these as the end of the line. The movie toys are ok and I'll be picking up a few for customs on top of the few ''classic'' figures they pepper into the line (Thunder, Charbroil, etc). But I've already cut my Joe spending by 90-95% and the movie toys won't change that. (Although I'm hoping the movie toys are a huge success. Joe needs a new generation of fans to revitalise it, but that is the subject for another thread...)
With nothing new Joe-wise, I've managed to catch up with TF Classics/Universe 2.0 in the last couple of months. That is a great line and I've managed to pick up a few extras to try my hand at customs. Ironically, it will be short lived as it too is going on hiatus for the movie stuff...
When all is said and done, I'm actually grateful for a bit of a break. It will make me appreciate what I have rather than being focused on getting what I don't have. I'll be able to re-evaluate and re-focus my collection so that when the classics come back next year, I'll be excited about the line again.

The original post took my thoughts and nailed them to a "T". The only thing I am interested in future wise is the 7 packs, Stinger/Hiss and resolute. The only movie fig that caught my attention is the Ice Viper. Other than that...pass. For those who like the movie stuff, there should be plenty to go around.

Yeah the movie pretty much killed it for me. All I see is some promising custom fodder coming out. I really don't need figures of actors that are playing characters that I already have figures of.
The only plus for me was that Marvel (and I am more of a comic fan than a Joe fan) started the 3 3/4 line at the exact same time Joe ended for me. The beauty of this is that I can phase these figures into my Joe dios.
I'll probably just get a Stinger and that will be it. Joe will still be a source of custom pieces if I need them, but that's all she wrote for me.
