This was a great thread, I also missed these lines and wondered about them. I'm just now reading the ddp series and I noticed some of the roc vehicles are re-releases from those lines...

Much like the post-er, I stopped collecting around 1990. I lost a lot of interest in GI Joe (as a toy) until the 25th anniversary line came around. Even though I didn't collect them, I did kind of like the SpyTroops and Valor Versus Venom lines. I just didn't like them enough to spend money on.

I appreciate all of the feedback so far guys. Thank you. I picked up an interesting figure called "The Black Dragon Ninja" from a local Freds today. I assume its from Spytroops going by the date stamp. Articulation aside,I was impressed with how well it fit into my 25th/ROC display.
Its scaled very well to those. So I may have an intrest in getting some of those figures. I also did some research on the Sgt Savage storyline and it does intrest me. Especially after reading about the animated pilot that did somehow tie it to ARAH continuity. As for the other lines I am still on the fence.
Except for GI Joe Extreme. Those really do look like crap. Thanks again guys!

Much of the DTC line was VERY well executed, IMO. Even the figures that were frankenjoed from Spy Troops or Valor vs Venom figure were generally well selected and very nicely done (I still have the DTC Major Bludd as my definative version) and I still feel the Spirit figures done in that line were far better updates than the 25th version.

VvV and SpyTroops brought me back into Joes. I loved the way it was so easy to switch parts etc. I kind of miss that aspect, given that the current construction limits torso and arm switches to the brave.
