Re: GI JOE: CLASSIFIED | Y'all heard/know GI JOE (ARAH) is returning as 6" figur
I've never even been a GI Joe collector and I still don't like this news much, mainly because it's just so obviously going along with the current big trend toward 1/12th scale. A trend I do not relate to, at all. As I've written many times on that 'is 1/12 the new 1/6' thread, I have tons of issues with 1:12 and find it a frustrating scale at best. Especially as someone who is primarily a customizer these days -- 1/12 is not a scale I enjoy working with, it's just too damn small. And as somewhat traditional SW fan to begin with, when it comes to collecting, I prefer either the tiny 3.75" figures, or 1/6 scale. I've tried so many times to get into the Black Series 6" line, but I'm usually disappointed cause it's literally just a larger version of the 3.75" toys, but without any of the lovely nostalgia I feel for the smaller figures. Also, they are always hard to find and overpriced here in the UK, so I usually miss out on the few of them that I want, anyway. I struggle to muster up much, if any, enthusiasm for the Black Series, and the more people rave about those the less I seem to 'get' the appeal whatsoever.
So...yeah, I can understand the apprehension, for sure. :/
