On a side note, I saw three brothers in Target Saturday (all between the ages of 7-10) go completely ga ga over the ROC figures. It was cool to see and they each got one from what I could observe.

Quite the opposite for me as I was actually burnt out on the 25th/Modern Era Joe's. Just got boring after seeing the same look from 25 years ago. But ROC brought a new look which I like because not only can I use the characters along with my classic Joe's, but I can also use them for my own verse which is kinda like ROC with a big influence on the sci-fi side, so a win-win for me.

There you have it, a 'H8ter' who loves ROC figures. Fri. or Sat., we'll see if the movie is as good as the toys.

I've been good so far, haven't bought a ton of the stuff I don't like very much. Only picked up 3 or 4 more figures than I expected, and couldnt resist the crimson Hydra like I thought I could.

I'm buying them because I like them. In fact, I'm slowly getting rid of all of my 25th so that I'll have room for the ROC stuff and because I've just become less and less a fan of the 25th. For one thing, I cannot bring myself to display my 25th next to my RAH stuff which forces me to have two separate collections of what are essentially the same thing. ROC allows me to have two separate collections of GI Joe that are different enough to have their own unique look and feel.

I'm buying because I think I can tie most of the figs into my Joeverse. Some of them have a very basic military look to them, making them ideal support personnel (someone has to pack the shoots, man the armory, provide security, run communications, stand guard, maintain equipment, and do all the grunt work; right?) So for me I love the Zartan MP, Breaker, Pit Commandos, even Hawk (love the bare bones t-shirt and fatigue pants look) and Stone have basic enough bodies that they can be used for various support personnel and security.
Plus I see some potential for a nice custom Lowlight out of a few simple swaps and basic paint apps. Ripcord? That's the head for a custom Bulletproof...the Jungle Ripcord? After seeing some preview pics; combine that with the Matt Trakker head and you have Muskrat (albeit some painting is in order there) Albeit I have a limited budget so I buy slowly and drop hints to my loved ones as my birthday approaches.

i love G.I.JOE. but i have always been rather select with what i get. that being said i have purchased 10 of the new roc figures. 4 of them were 2 for 10 and the other were 6.99 each. i certainly didn't buy them just because they were on sale though, but it helped. i am still on the fence with some of the figures (like any of the viper). i believe that the vehicles are grossly over price and i refuse to buy any of them until they are on sale.
although i personally think the pit commando is the best figure out there right now.

I love the new ROC figures. I was getting tired of the 25th figures, because they were stale imo. I don't want the same thing i had as a kid. I want the characters to grow, to evolve. I think the ROC figures accomplish this. Between ROC and Resolute, i am totally stoked for GIJoes future!

I like the ROC figures, i love the blue camo figures and the reactive armour figs, so i aint just buying cause they are Joe toys. I only bu the figs i like, im not really interested in the vehicles at the moment.
