I was quite surprised to read this this weekend. Although I was initially excited to hear that there was a new GI Joe cartoon coming back, the figures look to be the suck. Especially the fact that they are in an 8" scale, which doesn't make sense to me. I was really surprised to see that they were putting the 3 3/4" (and 12", for that matter) lines on hiatus, which seems like an excellent ways to tick off collectors. Parts of the Joe line have always been tempting (the comic packs in particular), because after SW, Joe was pretty big with my friends and I when I was a kid, but like Jesse mentioned earlier, this just makes me want to get further away from it. Hopefully we don't see Hasbro pull the same stuff with the Star Wars line in the future.
