Actually I think I'd get all those figures. BTW who wants to wager when we'll see a dress uniform 3 pack of Rex, Rip and Duke?

I think RoC is geared towards kids and you need kids to run any line successfully. Even though we are collectors, and some of us like me play with our toys like kids. The main consumer of this stuff is children.
Therefore, they come first. I went to the TRU sale yesterday and I saw a kid and his dad trying to find the red neo viper. Apparently, the kid had just seen the movie and wanted the figures. The fact that I see kids looking at gi joes now and admiring them means so much.
I think we've got to let the movie year pass and next year we will get a "classics" line or something. All the figures we've been wanting in the past will be on the shelves. No more will gi joe be like the impossible to find 25th line. We will be able to walk into a store and find Night Viper, Cesspool, or whatever Hasbro chooses to produce for us. After all, the movie line has given them a new source of tooling.

Ohh that reminds me, we never see the red viper in the movie, had hoped his snake in a box would get some explanation.

well from the looks of it the movie did ok. now if the sales do good we canhope to see the same thing they do for SW & TF. for joes. i dont like 90% of the roc figs. so i am saving alot of cash this yr.
I hope they do at least 2 lines ROC & 25th/resolute line. they can keep the roc cardback for roc and give us the 25th card back and that way the MOC collectors like me can keep there moc collection going with the 25th/res card backs.

Yesterday was the 1st time I saw a kid and his dad digging thru the pegs at TRU. Kinda neat to see besides the usual heavy breathing collectors i run into.
I think we will learn more about the fate of our beloved 25th/ME line when joecon starts this week.
