    I liked the story telling. The relationships between the characters, the origins, the individual tales, and the over arching nature of the series.

    I'd have to agree with most everything GeneralJoes said. I loved how all the classic characters were introduced throughout the show. It really had the feel of a great origins-story. The backdrop of having Cobra with legitimacy is a story I've wanted to be told in a big way for a long time. Renegades was a fantastic opening act we really need a second and third series to follow them up!

    Plus, I'm still waiting for a Major Bludd figure with his Bludd-mobile.

    i enjoyed the storyline, very much in the same line as the A-team. Kinda dissappointed that major characters were left out of the toyline.

    Agreed with you both. They managed to introduce supporting characters in very unique ways that were different, yet still in the spirit of the original stories. Loved their twist on Tomax and Xamot, and I can only imagine how they could have really developed the universe once the Joes were no longer fugitives and Cobra was an established threat.

    And yeah, a total shame we didn't get figures for Roadblock, Baroness, Destro, Major Bludd, Mindbender, etc... seems like a big missed opportunity there.

    Have to admit, at first I wasn't a big fan but as I watched more episodes it grew on me and by the end of the run I was chomping at the bit for more...Along with the many of the figure opportunities that were missed, I still wish that they would have put out the Coyote that was in the case at Toy Fair (I think...)...even if they did release it without the renegades stamp on it, it would make for a good modern Urban APC vehicle or such...

    I LOVED that show! It combined kid stuff with adult stuff without canceling each other out, and I loved the animation style, and the toys we did get were GREAT, but destro and baroness toys would have been great!

    VampClutch, they showed the Coyote at JoeCon in 2012, I believe. It was a wonder to behold!
