Another great profile. I really liked this figure as a kid. He just looked so different on the pegs, he was cool despite being absurd. I have yet to track down a new one. The one in the lab coat was a fantastic update.

 

Speaking of, did you stop collecting new sculpts Mike? I seem to remember you profiled quite a few of them in the past. Did you sell them all or something?

I did give up all new sculpt Joes. They just didn't do anything for me, especially since I simply can't mix them with the classics and consider them a whole new line unto themselves. My love is for the style I had as a kid. I don't think any of the new sculpt or 25th stuff are bad toys, they just aren't the part of Joe that I have any interest in.

 

I'm in the process of selling off my remaining new sculpt stuff. The market for them is pretty soft so I've still got a lot of '02/'03 figures left. My plan is to be rid of them all by the end of the year.

I can certainly see why you'd want to focus on one style, and I'm sure the space freed up helped a lot too. I'm the other way: I cherry pick the best of both sides. I like a lot of the Valor/Venom figures, but I skip figures with long legs & no torso. By the same token, I love vintage figures but I'd never chase down figures like Claymore or Armadillo or giraffe-pants Leatherneck.

 

What's your stance on ARAH-style released after 1994? Do your figures have to be 'truly' vintage, or do you accept modern repaints? Comic pack figures with new heads? Club exclusives?
