The era gave us cool new characters like Barrel Roll, Crosshairs, and Scalpel, (I'd add Kamakura but he's more a DDP creation) and one of the best Cobra Commander designs ever (this one). It also saw Hasbro starting to experiment with greater articulation in the Joe line, and giving us lots of updates to our old favorites. Sure, the figures look dated now compared to the 25A figures, but at the time they were still solid toys (except for that T-crotch first series and the occasional "action feature" figure, but we won't talk about those....).
While there were problems with scale and proportions that plagued the entire line, the gimmicks were usually kind of lame (Sound Attack and snap-on "disguises" and such) and by and large the vehicle selections were pretty lackluster (until the very end in the DTC phase), I greatly enjoyed the JvC thru DTC era. It kept Joe alive for five years, and that's never a bad thing. Sure, there were some lame figures, but that's true of ANY era of Joe.
Sadly, it ended right as it seemed to finally be hitting its' stride, as the DTC stuff was generally quite awesome, even for frankenjoes. I do think it's kind of a shame that people seem to have completely forgotten or overlook this era of Joe now.

I wouldn't include the DTC stuff with Spy Troops/VvV. Still, this line had some good figures - figures that even work with the current line (Scalpel, for instance). But overall, it like the Star Wars Power of the Force line: overmuscled under-articulated oddly designed figures that really don't remind us much of the original characters.

Jmacq1, you took the words right out of my mouth, good post
I'd also add that Spytroops/VvV gave us Bombshell, Agent Faces and Dreadnok Burnout...I'm a sucker for new characters

....I just realised you're talking about the CGI movies and not the toylines correct?
If you're talking about the movies, my vote needs to be changed (I voted Awesome) Spytroops was an acceptible movie (except for surfer Beach Head's voice) VvV was crap, animation and story.
As for the toylines (which is why I voted awesome) I loved them! JvC brought Joes back with brand new sculpts, I remember seeing pics in Toyfair and thinking "Wow, Cobra Commander actually looks evil now!" Then Spytroops came along and we got removable armor on almost everyother figure (I'm a sucker for removable armor) This was the first time we got classic Crimson Guards with removable helmets too! VvV gave us some cool new sculpts and ideas (While not universally appreciated) and DTC brought us new versions of many of our old favorites

Oh wait, if you're talking about the direct-to-DVD/Video CGI movies...then I don't know, I've never seen them, and generally have only heard bad things about them.

The CGI crap-fest that was the Spytroops and VvV animation offerings are sitting still mostly unopened on my DVD rack. Thankfully they were aquired as "extras" with figure lots and box sets that I purchased for other reasons.
The flip side is that the Spy/VVV figured "worked" to satisfy my heroine like addiction for Joes until the 25th Anniversary came along.

I have a number of the VvV figures and a couple of the JVC figs, but thats as far as my fandom goes. The cartoons themeselves suck on a whole new level of suck. The acting, the animation, all WAAAAY off........Though they did spawn a few cool looking toys.
In the eyes of a snake, everything is either a threat or it is prey.
