Does anyone miss the classic figure style like I do?

Recommended Posts

Sorry I am sure this has been discussed to death but I have been gone about 10 years or so. I have to say I really don't care for any of the changes or attempts they have made at new style figures. I think they look strange and oddly proportioned. Also I have spent hundreds of dollars collecting old style figures, why do I want new figures that don't really fit or look right with the collection?


I bought the new stuff for a while because I was holding on to a dream, but eventually I accepted I hated them and sold them all off and started just collecting vintage figures. There are still plenty I don't have.


Any one else feel this way?

I don't know. I really did like the 25th Anniversary and onwards stuff, though to be fair, most of my G.I. Joe 4" collection is figures from 2007 and onwards.


However, I do still mix my 25th and onwards stuff with older stuff from the original Real American Hero line from the 1980's-1990's, along with the 2001-2005 line. So I don't have any issues personally.


To be fair as well, some of the early original 1980's figures had really large heads compare to their bodies, though I will admit, on the Cobra side, it was okay for characters who where wearing fully covered helmets, like Cobra Commander, the Vipers, and Destro(If you like the concept he is wearing a metal face mask similar to Dr. Doom, instead of a skin tight advance mask that mimics his facial expressions).

I would be down to see what someone could do with 3D printing & make some 6" scale classic style figs...complete with the crazy articulation & rubber bands and all...I'm not saying the whole line but at least Stalker & Cobra Commander...
