yup, I saw that too....

25 Figures is more new figures than we've gotten in the last 3 years.

I just read that this morning too, and it has me interested.  I haven't bought Joe in years really, aside from a couple figures 4 or 5 years ago, but if this is a VOTC-style concept with the vintage Joes from my youth, it might be tough to avoid.  And I want to cut back this year  ::).  I'm sure we'll get a glimpse of this at Toy Fair, and I'll be interested to see what it will be.  I know I'll probably at least want to get a few of these, if they turn out to be well done.

Ok just for the sake of Speculation....O-ring? or Not?  I think they would have to have it, just to pay homage to 25 years ago (when I got Short Fuze, Rock N Roll, and the FLAK for my birthday).

If the Sculpts were like VOTC I'm not sure I would miss it too much.

Man, my first was Flash...  K-mart on the hill was brand new, and till then the only stores we had around were Fisher Big Wheel across the road from KM, G.C. Murphy down in Vandergrift, and little Ben Franklin stores (every town had one it seemed)...  KM opened, and my mother brought a Flash home for me and my brother each, knowing we'd get hooked on these things... 

I probably had 5 Flash figures over the years.  I always seemed to lose him every year in the snow, and every thaw we'd find the lost ones all faded. 

Oh good times...  good times.

That's pretty sweet!  Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes were always my favorite characters from gi joe.  I ditched all of my joe stuff in 01.  Collecting three toy lines from Hasbro was just getting a bit too expensive.  I may pick him up though, can't be like the kubrick addiction can it?

That figure does look pretty spiffy, and if the rest of the line is up to this standard, I might be tempted to pick up a few.  It would be nice to get the whole line of 25, but I'm supposed to be cutting back this year - not adding new lines ;).  I'd definitely be tempted to get Snake-Eyes, Duke, and any of my other favorites from my childhood if they make them.  I hope we get to see a few more here soon, they do look nice.  Sort of a VOTC-ish concept for the Joes it seems.

This line is starting to turn out great! Very VOTC-esque. I hope we see a new Crimson Guard in this line. Is the 25AC supposed to be a TRU exclusive, like DTC, or wide retail?

I can't tell if it is O ring or not....look at the legs...

Either Way....I hope this line continues to the point we get Falcon and Repeater....

Those ROCK.

That is a really good StormShadow...

I'm thinking that I'll be in on these too...  That's such a classic looking Stormshadow with an update to it...  Yikes I can't afford more ****, this is killing me.
