LOVED the 25th. Brought back the old passion of collecting and seeing the (Mostly) far superior updates and watching it roll along. And then came RoC. Yeah. Great idea for the kids. But they coulda kept it super hero squadish for the wee ones, and gives us back our toys.

Oh, and by the way Eddie, it's a totally "stupid" poll in the sense of "I had no idea what to expect!" but I'm glad you posted it, nonetheless. I also don't think that it was your intent to bring about something new or inspiring to the table, just to say "Hey guys, here it is, laid out." So thanks for that.
I think they really dropped the ball with the movie designs, as far as doing something new and amazing. If they wanted to go all-out with the Accelerator suits, they did it the wrong way. If they wanted to make Cobra menacing, they shouldn't have made the Joes all-Matrix-black, too. And honestly, I think they should have made the movie line fit with the classic line a little more. That new movie-Joe-camo just doesn't fit in anywhere unless you have only movie toys, no matter what ROC-toyline supporters throw my way. It's nice to me that the Joes now have a more unified "unit" look, but they're not done well though. They're all a sea of same, and rather boring except for select few figures like Shipwreck who still retains some classic charm.
There are a few gems in the ROC line, with figures that really stand out sculpt-wise, concept-wise, or overall aesthetic-wise, but not nearly as many as were in the 25th line.

I'm for RoC just because 25th molds could be used again and thus technically it would still be 25th in a sense if you customize some.

I'd like to see Hasbro finish up the 25th line (along with throwing in a few of the comic book characters and updated looks).
. . . And then move onto to a RESOLUTE line.

...and the boring issue has been one of my biggest gripes with RoC, movie or toys, the entire time...they are all just too similar to each other, joes to joes and joes to cobras, to be any fun...they are just way too bland, esspecially displayed (i've seen pics)...was/is the BBi figure and comparable lines selling well enough that Hasbro saw an untapped market for themselves?...
logic eddie, logic...movie costumes designs came first, THEN the toys...Hasbro had no choice in the matter...so i hear...
