__._.··..-.__..__.___.·..--.___. I guess I'm going to get crucified with you because I agree. As long as Hasbro is hellbent on using ARAH characters, themes, and storylines to sell product, you're going to piss off a segment of the JOE fandom that's going to say, "This isn't G.I. JOE." However, if you do a what Paramount did with Star Trek and New Generation with the introduction of new characters, ideas, and storylines, this might be what's needed to revive the franchise.

The more we cater to ARAH classic collectors, the less and less kids are going to want to get in.
Besides that, it's basically what people have been saying for years. Better distribution, a better assortment of characters, etc. etc.
Or if Hasbro wants to stick with ARAH, they're going to have to embrace what JOE eventually became and what it's best known for and that is a military themed franchise that uses futuristic military technology that could possibly exist.
