I like quite a few of them. I like the fact that for the most part they wear uniforms rather than looking like a Village People cover band. I love that most come with a ton of accessories. Most of all I love the fact that my son thinks they are the coolest thing ever and plays with the Roc figures more than the 25th figures. However I do hate the fact that there are 50 threads a day of posters crying about how much they suck because they don't look like they came out of a shitty 80's cartoon. Hell a lot of the 25th figures didn't either and I liked them too. I can understand not liking them because they don't invoke the nostalgia of the old figs, but the blind hatred of awesome toys just because they aren't clones of their 80s counterparts baffles me . To each their own I guess.

I actually like several of the designs. Flash is great, so is the Pit Commando and Night Adder. I would buy more of both, if I could find them. I also like the Ice Vipers and have a small army of them. Most of the figures come with a lot a great accessories. I have also been buying them for custom fodder. You can't beat them for the 5.00 price tag either.

I am not not buying RoC. But, I am not buying RoC because they're RoC. Some of the designs, sculpts and accessories are great for customizers. As a collectable line though, I want nothing to do with it.

I've only been buying what I feel fits in with the 25th line.
To me, that has been only a few. No accelerator suits. I like the Duke figure as a figure, but not as Duke.
I have skipped all of the Vipers, Destros, Cobra Commanders, Hawks, etc...
The only figures that I have picked up that are very movie like have been both Scarlett figures and Stone.
I heartily agree with Artipants... Hate the new Joe logo.

I'm not buying RoC for the following reasons:
1. I feel RoC is tied to the movie and I thought the movie didn't reflect my view of the G.I. Joe world. So, I don't have any love for the toyline.
2. RoC figures may come with great accessories, but they also come with an oversized gun that looks redonkulous.
3. If I start buying RoC, I'll have to get all of them since I'm a completionist.
Now, If you really want to know why I didn't love the movie:
1. Baroness was a mind-controlled good girl.
2. Duke was a pansy that couldn't talk to his girlfriend after he screwed up and got her brother killed.
3. Duke and Scarlett are not together. (Sorry I didn't read the comics, so Duke and Scarlett go together in my mind. I didn't mind the update in Resolute though.)
4. Too many people died. I'm not too hung up on this, but it seemed while the cartoon went to extreme lengths to let you know nobody died, the movie had some gratuitous violence that probably could have been avoided. That being said, if this was a "war" movie, I probably would have said there wasn't enough violence.
5. Stormshadow was too evil and had no honor.
Have to agree with a comment before though, Dennis Quaid makes a good Hawk.
Now that I've told you how I wasn't going to buy RoC. Here are the two pieces I might actually get:
1. Motorcycle armor - I see this as a Robotech crossover piece and transforming motorcycle armor is just cool.
2. Nightraven - They don't have any Nightraven's in the 25th releases.

Because it's "RoC", and not GI JOE. I'm sorry. I thought you meant the DVD. I buy the toys, but mainly the offscreen stuff and 25th repaints.
