I guess I'm what you'd call selective when it comes to RoC stuff. So far, I've got:
PP Snake Eyes
4 x Neo Vipers
2 x MARS 3-packs
Armored Panther (though I don't think of it as movie-related)
... and my girlfriend's mom bought me the Night Raven as an early present! I was always on the fence about buying, mostly due to the price, but now I'm glad I got it.
I will definitely be picking up a few more figures. I'm thinking I'll get the Accelerator Suit figures (yeah, I do like 'em), maybe some of the ones with reactive armour. I REALLY do not like the ones with the grey/blue camouflage so I doubt I'll be picking them out. I dislike figures that are too obvious a repaint - unless there's a good reason for it (i.e. army-builder or a classic figure that was like that in the past), so I'll probably be passing on most of those.
Anything RAH-related/inspired, I'll probably pick up, like the black SNAKEs, etc.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

Hey everyone, I'm new here so this is my first post! BTW I'm from tfw 2005 if that helps!
Not gonna lie, but the new movie and toys have sparked an interest in Joes for me again. Last time I was into Joes was my step father's collection back in the early 90's. At that point he had just about every figure and vehicle for his two older sons, and I got a chance to play with them when his boys lost interest. Unfortunately, when his sons moved out I didn't know what happened to the toys, and when my step father died, I never got the chance to search his place looking for the old joes and transformers he had.
But with a new movie coming out and a toy line to accompany it, I've rekindled my interest in G.I. Joe and the Cobras.
So far I've got:
Heavy Duty Armor
Steel Crusher with Nitro Viper
And before I went to work this morning I swung by Target and got a Crimson Viper, Agent Helix, Pit Commando, and a Elite Viper!
I know its been hotly debated, but I love the new CC! I don't know why either, something about him and his figure is just cool too me.
I'm also partly aware that the missile launchers are a hot topic, but I dig em! Mostly because I use them for my Jurassic Park figure to battle the dinos with!
The Steel Crusher is also great, easily my favorite so far.
Gah, sorry about the long post, but I look forward to discussing GI Joe with you guys!

Well I got Zartan, Destro, Deep Six, Masked Trench Coat SS because of the TRU sale (if they'd gotten in waves 2-3 I might have gotten more). I know Deep Six is a Torpedo repaint, but its an excellent repaint. And he'll be my Seal Team Leader (as Lt. Torpedo).
I picked up Cover Girl (more for the body than the head) Her head doesn't look too bad on armored Scarlett's body, Ponytail Scarlett (ditto), Armored Scarlett, Desert Duke, Shippy (mostly for the accessories), and Regular Snake Eyes.
The troop builders, vipers, eels, whatnot, I'm not feeling. They just don't seem "joe" to me. I think they're too Sci-Fi, almost Star Wars-ish. I guess Resolute spoiled me there. The 5 Pack Baroness is the best, so I'm passing on the ROC Baroness (for now). Passed on the TRU BBq and Firefly. I only got the BBQ v1 for nostalgia and felt that previous versions of Firefly were superior to the TRU one.
I'm looking to get Helix, Jet Pack Hawk, Sgt. Stone, PPSE, PPSS, Pit Commando (x2), the TRU Snow Serpents (x2) and the Paraviper (to be my paraviper squad leader). I did want to get some Target exclusives, and the Wally-world version of Scrap-Iron. The Night Raven and Steel Crusher I'm waiting for a sale to pick up.

I've been grabbing all of 'em! I really like the new packaging and figure designs. This is how I envisioned GI Joe would look eventually. Don't get me wrong, I love the comic versions as well but I like where GI Joe is going with this movie. Hasbro still can't seem to get faces right but hopefully that will improve ;) My current faves are The Doctor and the Viper Commando.

The only things I have seen that I want so far are the Past and Present Rockslide (Polar Battle Bear) w/ Snow Job and Snow Cat/Ice Cat with Whiteout shown at SDCC. I am interested in the Wal-Mart Battle Stations but I have to seen them first. Other than that the Movie line has been little interest to me. Bring on the 25th and Resolute lines

I purchased the Night Raven ROC version at TRU. I am unhappy with this offering. Don't mind the missile shooting design and am happy with the level of detail until you get to the landing gear... the wheels don't turn! was very displeased. Something else I will have to modify before my little people break them off grinding them along the ground.

(wandered into a wal-mart found these 3 by chance. saw PP SS but didnt bother)

In the end, you'll see my name carved in stone...

I wasent planning on buying any....but when I seen the TRU 2 for $9.99 deal....I couldnt resist. I picked up one each of all the Cobra characters they had. These figures are alot better than I thought they'd be.

Finally broke down and bought Firefly... it's the only one in the whole store that I liked... :P Now if I can just find Wave 3 of the Combat (Canadian apparently) Heroes for under $100 I'll be happy :P
(Ok, hoping for more in the $40 range, but that's besides the point)
