the old saying goes "If it aint broke, don't fix it"
yes I like the new figures, but the 82-90's figures had form, there's a reason the run went so long, they were a powerselling force, (untill the neon colors took over in the 90's partially to blame is the surge of McFarlane toys that hit with the X-men by toybiz in the 90's everything went neon) our figures posability was dead perfect though, the only flaw was the O-Ring and perhaps the hook that held it in place, and even that is easy to fix wi replacement parts. I wish Hasbro well in the new line, I lkie what they're trying to do, and hope that future runs improve with trial and error, let's hope joe will be around for a long time and won't just be a money drive for hasbro to line their pockets with.

Sorry to hear about your Destro, by the sound of it, its just yours.
I think the new line will take off, retailers want something cheap and that will sell, and of the recent joe items, the anniversary ones have the cheapest prices(compared to the 8" line). I think joe will be here to stay, 3-3/4" seems to be an immortal scale.

Shin, I agree with everything you suggested should be done to improve the 25th figs. I'm more concerned with bigger problems like the figs articulation and aesthetics. "Unhindered elbows" would make some of the figs 10x better. Having a Cobra Trooper that can't properly hold a rifle makes him worthless (though, for that I'm glad I don't have to retire my legions of TRU infantry yet). And thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU, for pointing out some of the small things that have been urking me to no end. WTF's up with RB and GH's necks! There are definetely some incompotent designers/sculpters at Hasbro with no knowledge of human anatomy. I'm glad the new 25th's don't have all the probs earlier recent Joes have had though. That whole tiny waist, tiny crotch, loooong legged design so many of them were sporting really made me sick! I know were not the only ones who have noticed these problems, but I really appreciate it anytime someone speaks out. This way we can get the superior product we want that much sooner. I don't wanna wait 'til the 50th Anniversary to get truly perfect versions of a simple toy!
I really don't care about small insignificant things individual weapons. I have over 1500 small Joes with thousands of small guns and knives. If the gun a specific character comes with does'nt fit, I can find one that will. That HK did'nt match the Baroness anyway. My Baroness looks much better with the MarauderInc Aug. I'm not saying their weapons don't matter, let's just address the BIG problems first. Like the Baroness' 11" waistline. I hope no one thinks that makes her "sexier". Just make s the toy look ridiculous. God, I could go on all day so I better stop there.
Thanks Shin Densetsu. If we all come together we can at least get these toymakers on the ball!
