    Exactly. There is a lot of people here that need to study those side by side pics and realize there is a lot more to these new figures then just added articulation. The differences are night and day. I don't get what on earth people could want out of a MOTU line that isn't being delivered with the CLASSICS. There is simply no pleasing some people.

    This describes my situation perfectly (as well as many others, I'm sure).

    While I knew about the 2002 line and the commemorative series, they just did not interest me (well, they interested me, but not enough to buy any). This classics line, however, has pulled me in the same way the 25th anniversary GI Joe figures have.

    Just wait until you actually get one...you will no longer feel this way AT ALL.

    I've been a fan for 20+ years now and I gotta tell ya, if the 80's toys originally looked like the line from 2000 or the new classics line we would have thought that they were fantastic then. They reused parts back then because that's how toys were made for the most part. We're 20 years later with better designs and processes so I would hope they would update the new stuff to today's standards. I'll take the new look figures of today rather than have a line with part swaps. I'll buy a Mr Potato Head if I wanna play mix & match with arms and feet.

    For better articulation and proportions instead of a squat to poop stance. Sorry, I couldn't think of a less disgusting analogy...
