I hope it lasts for a little, through to next summer/fall with those comic and classic figures mixed in with concpets baseed on the movie figures, mainly because I just started re-collecting Joes with ROC, and would like the line to continue as it is and then eventually slowly phase into a different line.

Personally i feel this line is the face of gi joe just like every other change in the line from st to vvv to sigma six now roc,and with the great stuff to come by the time pursuite of cobra is done it will be time for the 2nd film line so there you go

well we will see how well it dose if they dont have any sales for awhile. im glad its doing good. im happy the ppl like them.
i dont so i dont have to worry about the amount sold. if the line dies it dies. as i have already cut my spending down to more then 90% of what i did last yr.
i will just stick to my customizing and i can get stuff i need off ebay or friends who cast parts for me. so that will work just fine for me to make the figs i want. it is sad for me that i cant buy the joes i want but oh well thats life.

I don't see the ROC line lasting much longer than the upcoming DVD release. The ROC line needs constant buzz IMO to keep the kids interested or it will eventually fail.

Characters that as we've seen, are a lot more like a blend of Resolute, ARAH, and RoC in terms of overall "style" than purely RoC stuff.
Seriously, I like the RoC stuff well enough, but there's only a few more figures that I -really- want/need from the movie. The "Pursuit of Cobra" stuff looks like Hasbro taking the "baseline" of the movie and cranking it up a bit.
As for the kids, I know a lot of people here seem to have a pretty skewed view that every kid in the world now is an ADD-riddled hellion that's addicted to video games and incapable of liking something for longer than a week, but quite frankly that's not true. There are kids out there that are very much becoming "collectors" with lines like Star Wars, Transformers, and possibly even GI Joe/RoC. Kids that collect these lines from year-to-year and not just "while the movie is out." The movie might help get them hooked, but some of them -do- stay hooked once they're there. Kids today might have more "gadgets" but they're not all that different from what we were like when we were kids.
