Hello Guest

 


Is This Even Allowed?!?
Description: For the first time in 9 years, I opened an anniversary figure.  Turns out, all the reasons I disliked them from 2007 and 2008 are still there.  I still don't get the love for these things.

Hasbro for the most part has really lost the plot over the years.  

The modern style stuff did improve after awhile, but I just could not cave in and collect the stuff.

She looks good! Not my cup of tea, though.

I liked and agree with your review, Mike, as I said on Twitter. I have serious nostalgia for the first 25th Anniversary offerings, but I sold most of mine and ultimately kept my o-ring stuff. I do have a bunch of modern era figs from RoC onwards, where they got better... but they're still really fussy and finicky. They look great, but you can't really play with them.

The Forgotten Figures review you did was nice! The Modern Error figures, are a real mixed bag, there were a few really nice ones, but at the end of the day even if they were good toys, they weren't great at being GI Joes

She looks lethal! I like the idea of female Cobra Troopers as a support staff for a "Worlds Without End" Baroness/Steeler duo, but both these & the "backless" O-ring offerings a few years back both seem to be just a little off from what I imagined/wanted them to be in my mind...but at least they're trying. I dunno, I'm really easy to please on most things, but I can also be picky with certain other stuff :D

There was a lot of hype for this figure because it's a female Cobra, but honestly this is one of the worst ME sculpts they've made in a while. Overall quality was just terrible IMO. I don't believe this figure was sculpted during the time of the old design team Hasbro fired around 2013 or so.

Comparatively though, said design team had improved upon the figure construction a good amount during their time. The figures released between 2010 and 2013 are mostly of good quality, some of which are excellent. Overall I'd say the "Modern Era" figures improved a lot more over the time they've been available compared to the New Sculpt figures. Despite that, I don't think you'd be very impressed with any of the figures you've skipped over the years.
