The "Retro" GI Joe stuff just looks like the rest of the modern stuff in vintage packaging.

The "Retro" Ghostbusters stuff looked like it was from the 80s.

It's the 50th Anniversary figures, with fewer accessories, put on some of the flimsiest cards (which look mostly like the 80s ones but not quite) at more than double the price point.

The HISS Driver and Crankcase have a few new parts.

It's crazy. I might buy them if the prices were fair.

Because it's generally cheaper than buying good vintage figures, even loose.

Agreed, it's a cheaper way to have an approximation of your old toys, MOC, without having to do much seeking or spending.

Found the Grand Master and Korg Marvel Legends 2 pack for $15 and the DJ Roomba (or whatever his name is) from Galaxy's Edge for $10 at a discount store.
The boxes are beat six ways to hell so they're definitely getting opened.

Finally found the two two-packs of the movie ninja turtles.
NECA finally stayed doing a massive restock of them at Walmarts, asking with a cool Super Shredder I passed on.

NECA (via Facebook) told me just last week that the figures were never exclusives and weren't being produced anymore.
They have idiots that run their social media.

How many TF figures you think you own by now?
I’m going thru boxes I’m moving out of storage and finding some gems I forgot I owned.
I just lack the proper space to display everything I have.

I refuse to consider the answer because it will remind me I could own a beachfront mansion in San Diego instead.

I have stopped getting figures of characters unless they're better than what came before. Trouble is, the War For Cybertron line, especially when combined with Studio Series '86, is churning out one definitive version after another.
