I'm psyched to see the return of cloth outfits.  One of the things that I hated the most about the later Joe figures are the sculpted shirts.  I don't mind some of the t-shirts, because you can easily put a jacket over them, but the sweaters and armor were kind of a pain in the ass.  I passed on several figures due to that.

My only question is if any of these will use the SA body.  I know there are a ton of companies putting out figs that have way more articulation, but the SA Hasbro body, IMO, is one of the best 1:6 scale toy bodies ever developed.  Sturdy, plenty of range of motion, bulky to show definition but still slim, at the same time, to look great in clothes.  And althought I'd like one more point of articulation in the wrists, the hands are some of the best out there with the Gung Ho Grip.  Excellent, excellent toys.
