90% of GIJoe vs Cobra, Spytroops, VvV, and DTC figures were absolute garbage. I don't know what bad sculptor thought that huge ball-shoulder, stunted torso, teeny waist, elongated legs, and gimpy hands formula was stylish, but I hope they have long since been fired. There are exceptions, like Covergirl and Jinx. Maybe a few others that aren't coming to mind right now. What those lines did have, were great vehicles. The Patriot Grizzly(s), Thunderwing Jet, Night Attack Chopper(s) were all awesome despite needing better names. There was also the Sting Raider, Defense Mech, Sky Sweeper Jet, APC Transport, ROCC and Rhino. Now to address the following comment..

I agree with Cobra Soldier. Some VvV figures were great (Flint, Baroness, and Wild Bill come to mind), but most of them looked silly because of the new sculpt. I could live with the sculpt, but what killed it for me was the quality (or lack thereof). My Tomax & Xamot CG packs were awful! The single packed figures were painted poorly, and most came out of the package loose. The thing that blows my mind is that they're selling these figures now for $3 a pop with no weapons. That's highway robbery!

I thought the Cobra Commander figure looked pretty cool. But wasn't collecting em or anything at that time. I think it was around the Gi Joe movie or after that i stopped buying Gi Joes. Then i'd look and see we had GI JOES IN SPAAAACE! And was thinking wtf did ya do to my Joes!?

While the 1997 relauch got me moderatlely excited, nothing worked for me until the 25th relaunch, and that was only when i got the 5 packs for $12 on amazon.
I didn't like the sculpts or the plastic quality after 1994. I didn't like the colors before then.

There were some cool concepts that came out of VsV/spytroops ie barrell roll, bombshell, blackout, redspot, scalpel, medivipers, mindbender looking like a mad scientist instead of a village person (the white labcoat), Link Talbot, and some cool redsigns of old classics like Recondo (I liked his spytroop version better), Roadblock and even The Heavy Duty Looked better (ie in a Camo Uniform with a nam styled bandanna instead of torn shirt and backwards baseball hat) and gung ho looked good as did Zarana. Now many of the sculpts (ie the short bodies long legs/arms were horrid) but if put into modern era stylings would look awesome, especially recondo and HD.

They were hit and miss. Some of them are as good if not better than 25th figures if you ask me. Bombstrike and Major Barrage come to mind. But other were hideous pieces of trash. Such as Lady Jaye.

I liked Venomous Maximus, Coil Crusher, the Swamp Rats and even the Razor Troopers. They were really cheesy, but I thought they fit in with the whole Mad Scientist/ Serpentor/ Sci-Fi thing Cobra has going on. Other than the B.A.T.S. and Croc Master, (who is an assistant to my 25th Croc Master!) I didn't get anything else from the line.
I have the little lab they made that lights up and it looks great next to my Weather Dominator!

But then they started popping up at Family Dollar for 3 bucks. The toys are decent. For 2 or 3 bucks MOC they make decent army builder.
This may not be my fav Joe line to date. But I must admit they had the best price point by the time I got a hold of them.
Would I pay 9 bucks or more for one? nope.
Am I paying 9 bucks for ROC? nope.
I'm just a cheap joe-r.
