I've been looking out for

I've been looking out for this guy, as he is everything you said he is: awesome.
He's just a nasty little bugger that came out of left field.
I mean seriously, zombies?! But awesome nonetheless.

Thanks for the review!

Now just to wait for a redone Ice Cream Soldier...

new figures

I have also been blown away at the amazing detail of the new GI Joes. Just like in the 80's the Cobra troops steal the show. You touched on my only complaint. The uniforms are so detailed and realistic they really do restrict movement on most figures. Man, they look cool though. Thanks for the review. I hope to see more new GI Joes on the site soon.

Oh yes, AWESOME figures.

Oh yes, AWESOME figures. I've got three already in preparation for my review on Joebattlelines and Joesightings. Plenty of jokes will be had. This things are not only rad, but hilarious! I love 'em!

The crazy arms are kind of cool, but the overall design and color scheme seem bland to me.

Modern Joes are the best

Modern Joes are the best figures out right now. Really,IMO,they're the best figures ever produced.
Sure you may like other lines better because you like the show/comic/movie they're based on more than you like the Joe show/comic/movie,but just in terms of the actual figure you get for your 10 bucks,you can't beat Joe.

Star Wars too

100% agree - The last Snake Eyes and Cobra Trooper to come out were simply awesome. Blows half the other things from any other company out of the water, for $$ vs. fun, hands down. Makes a lot of the japanese stuff look really bad IMO. And it's funny how on Y!J they pay out the nose for the new Joe stuff and Star Wars!! Just look at some of the prices from January! wow.

Plus, since 2008, with the $200ish i spent on Star Wars toys, I now have a perfect little 3.75 inch cast of Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back as well as a giant Millenium Falcon and a ton of Stormtroopers for them to fight. Like, the whole cast! And they look great, don't fall apart, good paint, a shelf dive = survival, etc. Compared to the last few years of SOC, it's night and day.

If you have any interest in Star Wars or Joe, don't be such a toy snob, and score these, because 5+ years from now, you'll be paying through the nose and cursing yourself for missing out.

Yeah Joes are still at the

Yeah Joes are still at the top of their game. Try picking up a couple of the Vipers with the chrome faceplates that came out not too long ago. That's one of my recent favorites.

The only thing I disagree with is the point about lighter, less substantial plastic. I happened to have a couple '91-'94ish Joes on my desk and they're definitely lighter plastic than the recent ones. They have slightly bulkier proportions, though, so the overall difference in weight isn't much.
