I was looking at the packing for some RoC figures and realized that the filecards on the RoC figures are pretty useless...
I mean, I threw out the ones from the 6 or so figures I bought from the line already, but that was just because I didn't like how small they were. But now, after I started to look close at them and read them they pretty much suck compared to the classic style.
For one, as I mentioned the size is off in my opinion, I mean, they aren't even in the shape of a file anymore. They just feel...small, very losable. Secondly they offer very little character information, just the basics, and even at that it doesn't tell you much, and the cards are usually specific to some random situation in the film that tells more about the situation then the character. Then it has the preferred weapons part, which so far seems to have completely made up weapons, which sometimes dont correspond with the stuff the figure comes with. If I remember correctly, Heavy Duty's said something like he used the 520 selective fire rifle (same as Duke and the others) when his figure came with a mini-gun...
I know some of you probably like the new cards, but I for one can't see why. They are oddly shaped, don't offer much information, and are seemingly incorrect in some cases.
How do you guys feel about the new cards?

Yes I am Ive got about 50 of them laying in the toy room. Ive been saving them since the 25th came out. All of mine from when I was a kid were tossed buy my father as were most of my toys from the day (still give him crap to this day). I will continue to do so unless my wife flips and tosses them LOL...

I don't care about the filecards.
i must agree, they're quite crappy, it's not info about the character, it's info about the toy.
In any case, i always save the card of figures. In this case because the front artwork is very good, but i don't really care for the file in the back.

I never cared about filecards. I actually get bummed out when Joes I want on ebay have filecards with them because it usually means the price will go higher.
Have to trade:
-MIB Twin Cannon
-MIB Desert Ram
-POC Low Light
-POC Destro (v27)
-POC Shadow Tracker
-POC Snake Eyes (v54)
-25th Red Ninjas
-25th Ninja Vipers
I don't care if the figures are loose or even incomplete :-)

I'm saving 'em.
I hate 'em. They're crap compared to the old ones.
But I'm saving 'em.
I save the cards too.
I'm just not saving the part of the card that folds up onto the bubble, cutting that off.
But save the artwork and the back.
