Now, I know this may be a silly statement, but here I go anyway. Yesterday, I bought my first GI Joe toy EVER. It was Rise of Cobra Destro, and only bought it to make a custom of Red Skull. Now I have been buying Hasbro's Marvel Universe since the line started, I have about 30 figures or so. Simply put, Destro blew me away. Not enough to start buying the whole line, as I'm not a big fan of GI joe fiction. But the plastic was so much stiffer, and the hip joints were fantastic, smooth movement, yet stiff enough to hold poses. Also, a metal T-bar is used. What I can't understand, is since Hasbro has seemed to have perfected this scale (as I know they've been making GI Joes since the 80s), why isn't this same kind of quality present on the Marvel line? I have toys from Fury Files, Secret Wars, Wolverine Origins and Iron Man 2, and none of them match the quiality of this toy. Why is this?
