SWEET! I've been collecting GI Joe for the past 20-25 years. Most of my collection is from RAH. Though I do have a few Valor Vs. Venom and one Sigma 6. My all time favorite Joe is Duke, with Snake-Eyes a very close second. The other Joes that I like are Joes that are lesser known like Sci-Fi, Short Fuse, Flash, Star Duster, Falcon, Mercer and Low Light.

I grew up with the classic 12 inch GI Joes. But then they turned him from "soldier" to "Adventure Team Member". I didn't mind. It just gave him better accessories. I hated how his kung-fu grip fingers would deteriorate after time though. I still have a few figures that just have thumbs. When they re-released them late last year, I felt like I was 5 again. I think they did an excellent job with both the figure & the box. Very retro.
It is not necessary to believe in God to be a good person. In a way, the traditional notion of God is outdated. One can be spiritual but not religious. Some of the best people in history did not believe in God, while some of the worst deeds were done in his name.
I collected the originalRAH line as a kid, and now I'm collecting the 25th anniversary line. I don't have much yet, just the original Joe 5 pack and the tomax/Xamot two pack...
I need more two packs so I can get the Doc figure.
And they need to make Sgt. Slaughter in this line!!!!!
Yeah, I'll never get the Doc figure. I dont have any 2 packs as of yet. I got a couple of the singles and I have the original 5 Joes that were released as well. Cant wait till some of the vehicles are released.
Wave 9 is coming out? I can only find up to Wave 3 at KB. Snow Serpent and BATs were always my favorite troop builders and I might be picking those up. I also have various GI Joes for sale/trade if anyone is interested.

I am thrilled with these new figures. I loved rah when I was a kid, but totally got away form it when I became a WWF fan back in 86-87. I wasn't going to buy any of the 25th line unless they made my two favorites from when I was a kid; Zartan and Shipwreck. Once I saw them on the shelf I became obsessed and have bought them all since. I am all about the 25th line of joe. It is nice to be going to a different part of tru now that I am broadening my collection from just cs figures to now doing the 25th line. So far I have them all moc and loose including the Target vehicles and TRU exclusives. The only major ones I am missing are Yellow Stalker, Piper, and gold head sdcc destro.
I have also gone from customizing wwf hasbro figures to customizing the 25th line. The bnb wwe figures have helped along the way. So far I have made: Road Pig Mutt Law Tripwire Alpine Backblast Ambush Big Boa (modern day version/concept) Rampart Repeater Outback Monkey Wrench "ninja training day one" concept (interesting back story i created for him) Dial Tone Shockwave
I am thinking of doing some sluaghter marauders, night force, tiger force, etc repaints as more guys get made.
If any one is looking to trade 25th figures (soon to be known as 'modern era') please send me a pm with what you are looking for. I have a ton of doc points, loose weapons, carded army builders, misc moc figures Right now I am looking for loose random ones for custom fodder esp gung ho heads and at least two Snake eyes wave one grenade sash accessories. Once wave 7 is in stores I will be needing them as well and I desperately need all the Canadian card variants from wave 5 and up.
