Hi there, I have seen some mention about Votoms here but nothing has really answered my questions fully.
I am looking to get some newer Votoms toys upgrading from the old Takara 1/24 1980's line but thought it would be great to just lump it into my GI Joe collection, or at least tell my wife that's what I am doing .....
Anyway, I want to get some clarity on some details concerning which line to go with. The end result is I want to be able to use my Votoms suits with my GI Joe figures or at least be able to fit MOST of them in the cockpit without having to squeeze them in.
Being that embarking on collecting the newer Votoms isn't going to be cheap I want to be absolutely sure before I start with either the Yamato line of 1/12 or the Takara line of 1/18.
I would assume that the Takara line would be fine but I know that the 25th Ann. Joes are not quite 1/18 scale so I don't want them to be forced into the seat.So...
Anyone collect either or both of these lines AND have 25th GI Joes that can give me some guidance?
I would like to go with the Takara line as they look a bit more detailed and I know that Takara toys are built to last a bit more than Yamato stuff as I have a bunch of their Macross stuff and while its FANTASTIC, its not really a toy built to be played with so much.
Anyone out there that can help?

I have only seen one picture of the 1/18 Scopedog with a 25th Joe inside and I think it worked. It could all be a fantasy, though. I know I wanted to get one and I watched ebay for a couple of months waiting for a steal but the closest I got was one that I lost going for $50 loose. It might have been on Joedios so I'd start there - beyond that I don't know.
