I have had to retire due to no job in 4 months, hence no money for joes. I do trades to get the stuff I want now.

i truly understand where you're coming from with the fact that there are so many multiples and so many left behind and others not delivered after the build up. for me it's just fun to collect them while they're around. the short comings of the production doesn't bother me too much besides my faves not be updated.
i look at it this way: there is only one toy line i have ever collected (gijoe) and i never stayed from arah, growing up. i stopped playing with them when i became a teenager, and only in the last 8 months have i started purchasing them again. so at this point i'm not going to get angry with hasbro (maybe disappointed) but i will collect what they put out from now till the end whether it be, roc, arah, or resolute, as long as i like the figures and or have the money to buy them.
i see no reason for complaint or spite which would result in me not collecting anymore joes.
thank you hasbro for renewing my love for gijoe.

last Joes I bought were the latest Joe five pack, and I'm really starting to get annoyed. Did this line really tank or something? If so, well I can tell Hasbro why- too damn many rereleases and repaints.
How many of us have walked into wal-mart and seen dozens of scarletts, Cobra commanders etc.
and if they're planning on dumping select figs into the ROC line, well I guess we're just screwed huh?

The 25th line is the first time since late/early 90's I have collected Joe's again.
Really, just don't buy it if it is a repaint. Now sometimes that is just not possible considering some of the 2 pack comics. But I have learned even when I buy them I can use that repaint for customs, or just use their accessories on other characters.
But, really if you are going to buy everything, you will get broke real fast.
I have not stopped collecting, nor plan to stop. However like a lot of the folks on here the economy has made me hold back a little.
