I've been surprised at how much I enjoy these figures. I guess after the debacle of ROC I'd turned away from GIJ and just half expected for POC to turn out to be ROC II. It is however a very nice use of classic characters given modern detailing that still gives them that modern military flavor yet still avoids making them look too science fiction-ish. Sadly, Hasbro is treating POC as a dumping ground for their unreleased products and as something to hold us fans over until they roll out the animated line in force.
I don't know how that animated line is going to go over, but it's not for me. They tried... I guess... to make it seemless with current Joe lines but it still looks noticeably off. Those long spindly arms, the baggy pants and the Star Wars like accessories just put me off. Most of the initial figures are characters we've seen to death... Duke, Lady Jaye, Snake Eyes.... I already have those characters. I really don't need uglier versions of them.
