I absolutly love the 25th/ME figures, but I've really been impressed by the quality of the RoC figures. I also like all the new looks. That being said though, I hope they continue to sneak 25th figures in with the new stuff.

You know, I'd be okay if they just finished up the 25th line up to the late 80s... That's all. They stopped short on the TF Alternators line (making odd decisions on character choices and making up guys like Decepticharge, but then not doing main characters or obvious choices like Bumblebee, Ironhide, Ratchet or the Stunticons) and even Marvel Legends seems to be lacking main figures (I still want a Jim Lee Jubilee and Jean Grey) while they're making guys I could give a crap about...
The thing that irritates me is that they got like 85% done with the 25th line up to the late '80s when the figures started getting wonky... Sure, there are a few after 1989 that I want, but not too many...
I just wish they'd finish the main guys, and then I'd be fine with them moving on to something new... They honestly could have done it already, even with mostly existing parts, instead of giving us 25% of the line as Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow/Duke/CC/Destro. I could understand if some of the more obscure dudes didn't get done, like W.O.R.M.S. or other vehicle drivers, but figures the likes of Cover Girl, Lifeline, etc... Bugs me.
It's just that they started something awesome, got it going fairly strong and then stopped short of the finish line. I think wrapping it up properly and giving us 2 more waves (15-20 more figures) and then they could have moved on to Resolute or ROC and done a shit-ton of new characters... Or hell, dabbled in the better characters from the 1989-on line (there are some gems there, too). I don't think too many of us would be upset if they skipped over the neon dudes or the Space Joes.
That's what I'd like to see. I mean, there's not much left for them to do with the 25th/ME updates... It's just that there's folks feeling that they got cut short on one of the most awesome toy lines in Joe history.

Wow, the poll heavily favors 25th figures. Surprise, surprise. I wonder if anyone from Hasbro is seeing this ...

I only buy the basic figures in the movie line (except for Shipwreck because my brother made the mistake of buying that thinking he was in the movie but he's not). Any other figures, I passed on because they're expensive ($7.99 is iffy but Target charges $9.09 and Kohls charges $10.99 for the ROC figures). I would buy more for maybe $4.99-$6.99 a figure WITHOUT those oversized weapons.
Thanks to price drops, sales, etc. ($4 - $6 figures are reasonable), I've got most of my favorite characters from the 25th line but I wish they'd finish up some characters they didn't make yet (like 25th Covergirl, Heavy Duty, etc.).
In Toys R' Us yesterday, I saw kids begging their parents to buy Tripwire and other 25th figures more than the ROC line. Maybe it's the better color in the figures (instead of flat black, blue camouflage, and other dull colors) that attracts the kids to the 25th line.

I think the Pursuit of Cobra is the best of both worlds. New design of old characters. New characters. The detailing and accessories are so much more than the 25th stuff. And the Cobras arent just multi color neos. They look unique.

25th- And in a perfect world we would never see Duke Legs, Flint Arms, or Flash's Head used ever again.
