25th ANNIVERSARY FIGURES......

Postby Ross SC » 29 Mar 2009 22:53

as they are all based on the original versions of each character, im really suprised more of you arent more interested in 25th figures! for instance:

I think it may be that if they did 25th Action Force (earlier than series 3 figs) and not just G.I. Joe then I may be more interested.

That's just me though :wheels:

I agree with Tintin, also they don't look right next to the original (and better ;) ) figures. I only have 1, HISS Commander. He's a permanent vehicle driver.

I much prefer the original / arah sculpts to the 25th. To me the originals are more aesthetically pleasing, plus the nostalgia factor isnt there as they just dont look like the toys of my childhood.

Have to admit though that the accs are a big improvement and I have used a fair few on my customs...

just go to: www.yojoe.com & you can check out every figure ever made, there is even an action force section.

i prefer the old figures, thats not my point! yeah the old figures are cooler but i dont get why the new ones are so hated, thats all!
i would love to see 25th action force released, but i guess the demand isnt there?
also, i dont think the legs look anyworse or too long than the old figures did having ridiculously low knees!

For me a lot of these later figures dont look as anatomically correct. Having said that, I'm a collector of old stuff, be it life like or not, so i guess I'm totally contradicting myself. I like the Eel from that lot though - looks menacing!

I got an eel the other day, really nice figure.

I like them and have a few and only Cobra, but not gone overboard on them.

I'd like to get the Polar snow serpant set though and the Arctic Hiss
