That ad looks fantasssssssssssstic!!
Question for all of you who are diving back into this whole GI Joe thing....Are any of you planning on army building with the Cobra Troopers?? I've grabbed 2 of every clone/trooper but I might bend the rule and pick up a few extras of these guys.
Also....Are any of you in fear of going backwards to start all over on a new line of toys with the vintage stuff? I know I've been tempted ever since I saw the first image of the new StormShadow..
I'd army build with the Troopers, if the big H in their infinite wisdom hadn't put that one in the boxed set. Then the Officer ships in either 1x or 2x per case, and since people are nuts for army building just about everything these days, I doubt I will. I was always more fond of the Viper anyway, so I bought myself two Viper Pits to avoid this catastrophe. Plus, more money for TF movie toys for me.
I've been chipping away at my vintage collection since the RAH Collection came out in 2000. I'm still missing a lot of heavy hitters from 1985, but I do have most of the early 82-84 that I want, as well as most of the 86-89 lines. I still have a few must-gets, like Bazooka, Hit & Run, and Alpine to get before the Joe market goes up again. Right now, you can get complete vintage Joes for a song just about anywhere, even ebay.
