I say bring 'em all on! I agree that '91 was the last year that the majority of the figures were decent, but there are still a lot of figures from '92-'94 that are worth making (and of course, what may be a figure I detest could be somebody else's fave....but Hasbro should make the fan favorites first I guess).
Let's hope Hasbro does a really good ARAH ('82-'94) poll next year where every character is allowed as an entry (including already done guys that some of us may want re-done or "fixed"). Maybe they could pick the top 7 characters from each team (Joes and Cobra) and do another set of 7-packs. It would be really fun if they did this annually!
Good idea? Yay, nay?

I'd like to see the classics done in Modern Era, and new looks/characters as well. No reason you can't have both.

Pfft, i'll take DEF Headhunter Stormtroopers over 3/4 of the Vipers that came out in the 80's.

I think it would be fair to assume if the movie does well (and with the amount of marketing and hype surrounding it I think it will) then Hasbro will show us no mercy and bombard us with merchandise (think Star Wars)
My guess is we'll see modern/vintage two packs more often in the future...or vintage style figures with repainted VvV vehicles. It's all about money and if money can be made I have no reason to believe we won't see all the figures we've been wanting.

I think we'll see a G.I. Joe: Legacy line at some point.

Dang. I'm the only ROC vote so far so here goes: I like a uniform team. I've already got about 95% of the ARAH figures I want with the new, modern look. The rest of 'em, even updated I would MOST LIKELY pass because the figures were pretty awful to me to begin with (and if Hasbro was willing to bring back a bright orange viper, then I'm sure the rest of those clunkers (IMO) wouldn't be far behind)

I don't think we have a choice now. Hasbro has already said we are getting all classics incorporated in the movie line. I miss the vintage art and filecards though

I'd say stop at Battle Corps but there are a few Jems in there as well as VvV. I say make at least one version of everyone in the 25th style. I don't need V4 SE but I'd like Claymore, Red Dog, and Pysche-Out with new Modern Looks. Dart and Kamakura are on the top of my VvV list. What about Mariner, and Firewall, and Sparks? Desert ambush Scarlet makes a great Mayday. Glenda should have just been Glenda.(So yes to international as well) But Do I need a Slaughter's Maruader's BBQ (WTF TRU?) NO!
Evedry Joe in Yellow pants, except Airtight, needs a wardrobe change.

I would like to see everything up to 85, which is what I had when I was younger. Although I would like to see the few they are missing made (plus a few others from later years), I can understand where Hasbro wants to cut the strings to the old designs and modernize for a new crowd. Too bad they couldn't get a few more classic waves out
