VOTC GI Joe??? I'm in!

though i'm wondering about those "more articulation than ever before claims". the RAH figures have always had great articulation.

Well, I know some of the ones from the past few years have had wrist swivels, pivot ankles and/or thigh swivels -- if each one of these new figures adds these points that would do it... They could be putting in ball joint ankles and knees, too...

Well even though I don't collect GI Joe, the Chance to get all the updated classic figures in a fell swoop is right up my alley. I can't wait!!

Cool! I'll probably pick these up...glad to see KIA characters still can be made!

(My favorite character was Sci-Fi; I doubt we'll see him in this line up, but so far the rest of it sounds good!)

Sci-Fi was my favorite too. I can't wait to see this and hopefully, if it is successful, they go beyond the 25 figures in this style.

Okay, I'll admit I'm not up on the whole Star Wars figure scene (I can't collect every toy line), so what exactly is VOTC?

I think...not 100% sure, it stands for Vintage Original Trilogy Collection; classic trilogy characters in new sculpts done on old-style cards.

And that pic reels me in. Add G.I. Joe to the stuff I'll be buying this year. I'll be giving up DC Direct

Wow.

Just...wow.

This could be my line of the year. Easily.

Sculpt looks good but may be too articulated, not a big fan of double knee but the sculpt looks good.

wow! i can't wait to see more of the 25th anniversary figures!

VOTC Star Wars, short for Vintage Original Trilogy Collection consisted of those clamshell packaged figures of Luke, Obi Wan, Leia, Chewie, Vader, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, R2, C3PO, Yoda, Han that were out around 2.5-3 years ago.

i have a feeling that Hasbro might put these in clamshells as well and then set the price at around $10 per figure.

I don't think they'd have the line be 25 figures if the price point were that high. They seem to think they can only sustain 5 figures a year at the $10 pricepoint with Star Wars which is the far bigger property. I bet these will cost $7 or so like the 30thAC.
