    What I want is figures based on the Sunbow ARAH designs but in a realistic style. Similar to how Star Wars BS does realistic style figures of characters from Clone Wars and Rebels.

    Hard to argue that toy Lady Jaye wasn't improved on with her cartoon design. So base a figure of her on the cartoon design but done more realistic then just a cartoon figure.

    ^Yes, this please.

    The BS Clone Commander Obi Wan is one of my favorite 6" figures that I own.

    I have been messing around with some of my pursuit of Cobra guys and would love to see some of these designs pop up later in the line. Man, that was a great time for Joes.

    I definitely don’t want it for the new Joe 6” line. I want highly detailed recreations of RAH — a 6” line of figures comparable to 30th Leatherneck and Gung Ho.

    but on its own merits, Sigma 6 was a great toyline.

    From my understanding, the black series and vintage collection are the same toys just produced in different scales. The engineering of the ME Joes is fine so if they keep the 6” line the same construction they may as well include the POC figures in the line just upscaled to 6”. POC Low Light, Cobra Trooper and Viper in 6” scale is a no brainer.

    The versions of Spirit and Quick Kick in POC were also amazing.

    Hell yea they were. Clever body reused for Quick Kick too since it wasn't good for Resolute Storm Shadow.

    I also use Quick Kick as a Bolo Yeung Cobra Kai secret weapon figure

    POC was the cat's pajamas. If the line lasts that long, it would be awesome to see it go that deep to include POC styled figures.

    I just wish I could have found Shadow Tracker when he came out, he was very difficult to find. Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t he supposed to be an homage to the Predator, since so many others were homages to Dutch’s crew?

    Yes he was, there was even a head based on Dutch paired with the Resolute Roadblock body but ended up used as a pack-in Jurassic Park figure IIRC. Other figures that homaged the movie are:
    • Repeater(ROC 5 pack I think)
    • POC Recondo
    • POC Spirit

    Yeah, I love the Jungle-Viper. Data-Viper and Hazard-Viper are a couple other gems of non ARAH origin.

    I also like the Para-Viper despite the gear hindering a lot of range of motion

    Repeater as Mac
    Recondo as Blain
    Spirit as Billy

    ^I can see them now Shin, you sir are a savant.

    That Jurassic Park figure had the Resolute Duke head with dark hair and a face tattoo.

    That’s a trip, because the original Repeater always reminded me on Poncho from Predator.

    My wish list is short: cool versions of Storm Shadow, Baroness, Cobra Trooper, Scarlet, and Breaker.
