Same here.. They look fantastic.


Funny thing is I haven't bought GI Joe stuff in many years, but this is the line that is appealing to us older fans, in the same vein that Transformers Classics does.

Hasbro is doing a lot of things right these days.

I'd buy them. They look great and I'm glad the small hand gun has returned. I thought toy laws didn't allow for small <1 inch weapons anymore due to the choke hazard.

all fireing missles from toys have to be at least 2" long. thats why the TRU reissues either had resculted, elongated missles and launchers, or removed the fireing mechanism.

blame the lazy greedy PC perents.

While I can understand knocking Hasbro for their cost-cutting measures like skimping on paint apps and excessive repaints I think it's only fair to recognize the efforts they've made for years to cater to younger fans and older collectors. Throughout the Unicron trilogy we were treated to plenty of G1 homages in addition to the Alternators line. When it comes to G.I. Joe they went back and replaced the T-Crotch with the classic O-ring fairly quickly after a false start and even went so far as to try and carry-on the 3 3/4 line after the introduction of Sigma Six with the DTC figures. They even gave us a new improved version of the classic HISS! Sometimes I think people really don't give them enough credit.
