That costume...Looks like they got CC and Firefly mixed up. Typical hollywood. As far as I'm concerned, that's not Cobra Commander. Defend the movie all you want, but that sucks.

Huh, so I guess they didn't cancel the Combat Heroes line?

Wait...I've seen this move before. They cancelled the last bit of Spy Troops (Crimson Sabotage set with Duke, Snake-Eyes, etc...) to get VvV out quicker then later release something similar under the VvV banner.

Also sorta like what they did with the whole "robot rebellion" thing, but that one was supposedly fuelled by lack of money or store support.

So my guess here is that perhaps they cancelled the 3rd wave of "classic" Combat Heroes for "movie" Combat Heroes?

This crap is unacceptable. It's as if they are slowly lowering our standards to the point where we will buy any repainted garbage they throw at us. All the retro versions of CC are awesome. The chrome face, hood, battle armor. What the hell is this?

Hollywood isn't about giving the fans the movies they want, it's about giving the fans what the companies want. And the companies want to spend less on molds, less on colors, less on imagination. This stuff is serious garbage.

I think you're right. I think all the "cancelled" or "delayed" stuff like Combat heroes and the Vehicles, were to simply make room for the stores to order more movie merchandise.

I think it's funny the Combat Hero movie toys resemble Duke more than any movie image or movie toy we have seen before. Way to confuse the kids Hasbro. Every movie image and toy image has the brown hair and goatee now with the Combat Hero movie Duke we get a more recognizable look with blond hair and no goatee.

CC mask is different.......I'll say that much. Not sure how I feel about it at this point.I think these figures will be more appealing to me once I have seen the movie. Even though I am already extremely familiar with all of these characters from ARAH,seeing the movie will help to give a personality to these guys. For me the movie and ARAH will be two seperate entities all together.I won't have a problem seperating the two.

I don't get these Combat Heroes, then again I'm not 6 y.o. either. Regardless, I can imagine what the non-cuddly version of CC will look like after seeing these images and I'm cool with it.

Really, think how bizarre some disembodied voice coming out of a chrome surface with no facial features would get after a couple minutes on screen. Something we forgive in cartoons or comics, but I doubt most (NOT hardcore fans, but the popcorn movie masses that will determine this film's success) would accept it as anything short of "silly", Joe canon or not. At least Vader had lenses for eyes and some features that resembles a nose, cheekbones and mouth.

If he's got some cliche "sinister cackling" voice under that, than I'll have to hold the laughter back even if I don't mind the mask.

That's gotta hurt.

Never thought CC would look *this* bad. And it has nothing to do with him not resembling the comic, toon or toy, mind you. Before ya'll get started.

Sure, this is just a silly combat heroes interpretation, but you can already tell what they're aiming for. Man, someone's got to rid the world of the John Peters and DiBonaventuras, etc.



Holy shit, that sure has got to hurt.

the makers of this film have actually pooped out a CC that makes this one:

Sysiss
02-11-2009, 01:16 PM
Regardless of how CC or anyone else for that matter looks *now* that has NOTHING to do with how the look of the characters *might* evolve into more recognizable forms in the future. Nothing is set in stone and as things move along via sequel and so forth expect to see changes.

Is CC's chrome plated mask or hood supposed to be just hanging out in the back of Destro's shed next to the leaf blower, as he just hands it over to "The Doctor" and says, hey man wear this. You have to take into account that very little in the way of actual Cobra is established as we know it in this movie, as this movie LEADS up to that. This is the foundation and very basic.

Who knows how much CC is even in this movie, I would think not that much. I'd bet my Refrigerator Perry's Football on a Stick that what he'll eventually look like as well as what he's all about will be nothing more then a cliffhanger as Rise of Cobra ends .

This isn't about what fans or the toy company wants. It's about movie producers needing to make these properties their own and rethink everything that's already perfect, making it look like crap in the process.

OK , First of all everybody on here said this movie was going to be a disaster for months and months. Then when we all saw the Superbowl trailer everybody changes their minds and says this thing is going to rock ! Now we are back to hating the movie just because C.C. doesn't look like a cartoon character that we grew up with.....I have been waiting for a G.I. Joe movie since I was 7 years old (32 now)! I feel very happy and excited that this movie is coming out because it features characters that I grew up with. So just everybody calm down and save judgment after we have all seen this movie. If it is great then I will leave the theater doing FUCKING cart wheels !!!! If it sucks ? Then I will be disappointed , but happy that after all these years somebody finally made a live action G.I. Joe movie :)

It just boggles the mind.

Conceptually speaking, hooded CC is, IMO, 100 times more sinister than this. And it's just a freakin' hood. That's the irony. So much complexity and detailing in this new CC... for what? Get a clue. Reminds me a lot of what happened with the Green Goblin costume in Spiderman 1.

All that "he looked too much like a KKK" crap is SO stupid I wouldn't know where to start.

Screw you, Lorenzo. This shit doesn't compute.

ssmith18
02-11-2009, 06:43 PM
Know what it looks like to me? Looks like CC's character gets badly burned and has to wear that mask to keep himself alive and to hide his disfigured face. Kinda sounds like something familiar from the comics (if I am remembering them correctly).

That said, the mask looks like it could easily have a hood fit over it to hide the life support apparatus. Hopefully, this happens at the end of the movie or for the second film...whenever cobra "rises" and destro subsides as the primary villian in the film's/films' storyline.

snakeeyes22
02-11-2009, 06:56 PM
Look closely at the toy. It looks to me that the mask is a transparent plastic shell, and the artwork suggests a skull nose, so I'm thinking a barely visible, horribly disfigured face beneath a life support mask, that the "doctor" trades his breathing apparatus for. the tubes even suggest a cobra hood...kinda? Don't know if it will look cool, probably would be a great design for a supporting character rather than the looks we'd prefer. Gotta say, this is a hell of a lot creepier to me and any child than his "Klan" mask. A noseless death face would explain his raspy speech impetiment if they give him that. Better voice rationalization than being a snake guy anyway. And he was a scientist in cobra la so maybe that's where this doctor idea came from?

Everybody here looks good with the exception of CC. If he puts the hood or chrome on in Part2 then it's forgivable. Still, the blatant lack of respect towards the same people who put the money in Hasbro's bank 25 years ago and made this movie possible in order rework it for another generation is pretty despicable. And what happens in 25 years to your kids when Hasbro screws up THIS generation......they will be on HissTank2034 making 10,000 topics about SnakeEye's knee pads being green instead of black...

Holy crap CC looks silly. Silly might not be the word. He looks horrible. Okay. So the mask is crap, but the eye holes. What the hell. Those eyes holes killed it for me. Does he suffer from a lazy eye? What the hell.

The whole time I was waiting to see if CC would blow people away. Guess not.

The lead designer/ director should be never allowed to work in hollywood again. Hasbro has let the movie go to shame. So the kids might dig it, but screw the fans and collectors who keep the line alive. Without us Hasbro, you wouldn't have a movie

Great.... So the director pushed for this, because he thought that the mask looked too kkk, wtf. Hasbro likes the hooded mask enough to push repaint after repaint. ... This is a joke, almost as bad as the 80s Heman movie.

Errr. I need to smoke.

Actually this DOES look like something that came out of the comics: The Tripwire vs Cobra Commander comic.

Know what it looks like to me? Looks like CC's character gets badly burned and has to wear that mask to keep himself alive and to hide his disfigured face. Kinda sounds like something familiar from the comics (if I am remembering them correctly).

That said, the mask looks like it could easily have a hood fit over it to hide the life support apparatus. Hopefully, this happens at the end of the movie or for the second film...whenever cobra "rises" and destro subsides as the primary villian in the film's/films' storyline.

That would be a very cool way to do it. I really think your idea makes a lot of sense and hopefully we will see something similar on screen.

I think this new incarnation of Cobra Commander will ROCK! With the jacket and chest plate, he looks more like a snake. He actually has breathing tubes in his mask, so he doesn't suffocate being in a closed mask all day! BRILLIANT!

That is hands down the sorriest Cobra Commander I've ever seen!
It looks like a repainted bastardized eel or Undertow figure, but not a good one! If the show fits, why try to fix it?
The original Cobra Commander has worked for years!
Can't we have The Enemy Leader in his original form with chrome dome hood, or cloth masque.
I'm turning my hopes towards the Resolute film instead of this hollywood globalized franchise hoopla!!!!!!!!

SAy what you all want, but i was the one that bought the Duke/CC and the SE/NeoViper packs. I cant wait to get them! I have all the combat heroes in my cubicle at work, and I have had at least 10 different people say, wow, those are cool! Did you watch the superbowl...I think the movie will do well, as there will be alot of childhood nastalgia from TF 2 the month before(even though i think this would have made a MUCH better X-mas movie, as I ALWAYs got Joe stuff for X-mas. It would have made more sense.........

Ah, that was you Harry? Good to know who beat me on the first two. ;-)

I'll still wait to pass judgment until after I've spent my $10, but I don't care for the look of this movie. Snake Eyes is cool, but how do you mess that up? The rest are seriously lacking, but as I said... It may work once I've seen it all put together. GI Joe has always worked due to it's hodge-podge nature, but in reality, a uniform is the hallmark of any military unit.

CC mask is different.......I'll say that much. Not sure how I feel about it at this point.I think these figures will be more appealing to me once I have seen the movie. Even though I am already extremely familiar with all of these characters from ARAH,seeing the movie will help to give a personality to these guys. For me the movie and ARAH will be two seperate entities all together.I won't have a problem seperating the two.

that CC is horrible.. Why didnt they use the chrome dome??!! just make it modern & tweek it out or something.. wtf is that goofy looking mask.. they just come up with anything & say there you go.. Cobra Commander.. um.. no.. HASBRO/HOLLYWOOD U SUCK!!!!!

& I was once optimistic about the movie.. Ripcord being black.. ok... Heavy Duty, no Roadblock.. ok... but this!!! they meesed up on CC so bad.. I cant overlook this.. OMG that sucks!!.. Ive waited 25 years for an effing Joe movie.. & THATS the CC I get... Eff That!

It doesn't look that bad.

I actually find his mask rather disturbing. Like someone constantly hooked up to life support and he looks disfigured.

thats not the point.. the point is.. thats NOT Cobra Commander.. u cant just go in & change a classic iconic character .. dont work like that..

Didn't the neo viper have black awesome armor with a b*tchin skull mask?

Regardless of how CC or anyone else for that matter looks *now* that has NOTHING to do with how the look of the characters *might* evolve into more recognizable forms in the future. Nothing is set in stone and as things move along via sequel and so forth expect to see changes.

Is CC's chrome plated mask or hood supposed to be just hanging out in the back of Destro's shed next to the leaf blower, as he just hands it over to "The Doctor" and says, hey man wear this. You have to take into account that very little in the way of actual Cobra is established as we know it in this movie, as this movie LEADS up to that. This is the foundation and very basic.

Who knows how much CC is even in this movie, I would think not that much. I'd bet my Refrigerator Perry's Football on a Stick that what he'll eventually look like as well as what he's all about will be nothing more then a cliffhanger as Rise of Cobra ends .

Ever wonder whats under CC's mask? Another mask with life support systems according to the movie. Therefore, I think if this movie has a sequel we might see a mask we are more familiar with.

*********************************************
Cuz in the script the Doctor simply looks at Destro once the Nanites have given him his metallic face and announces that he wants to be called "Commander" from now on,and he will be on a first name basis with "Destro".

So I was kinda hoping we would see a shot like the end of Attack of the Clones with CC and Destro in thier Cobra outfits looking out over the newly established COBRA army

Someone needs a theology refresher. Immaculate Conception has nothing to do with having or 'not having' a daddy. Not the same as "virgin birth," at all.

Exact ally, and this premise makes sense on at least two accounts.

#1, Like I said earlier in my post, the Beginning/Rise of CC has to start somewhere and it only makes sense to start from the beginning, no?

Look at it this way, this is a back story. The movies job in regards to CC is to show the *TRANSFORMATION* key word, from Rex into CC. That in itself is a process which takes TIME and in my estimation doesn't even actually transpire until late in the movie.

Towards the end and upon being disfigured/scarred CC now needs the assistance of a breathing apparatus etc.... FOR THE TIME BEING Destro hooks him up to a crude, but yet sufficient device that simply keeps him alive, but yet also shows the audience first hand the tragedy of what has transpired without being hidden behind a hood/faceplate. This also leaves room for the movie to evolve into a sequel as the audience wants to see more, but as of now, does not.

Also.......

In Spiderman #1 did Peter Parker's flashy new costume just happen to be hanging out in his closet next to a pair of Wranglers or did it have to be constructed? I believe he initially wore uninteresting pajamas/sweats.

In Ironman, did Tony Stark stroll on down to Walmart to pick up the Mark II or did he spend countless hours, money, and research testing and perfecting it.

I could easily see in TIME, a slick high tech chrome-like faceplate with a specialized viewing lens and breathing apparatus built into a faceplate/helmet of sorts like we know implemented into the story at some point. Point being, these things take TIME give it a chance. Optimism seems to lack on this board.


Point #2. From a business perspective the last thing the movie wants to do is to let the cat out of the bag right off the bat by throwing everything at the audience at once. Now I'm not saying that this is going to happen, but wouldn't it make sense to maybe hint at the faceplate/hood at the VERY end of "Rise of Cobra" for the reasons listed, rather then have CC wear it in the very FIRST movie?

You guys may not like it that way, but I'll tell you what, that's how I'd do it. Show the audience just a bit...but not too much which leaves them coming back for more.

It's apparent that many of you are disgruntled about a bunch of stuff and rightly so, but the issue regarding the mask at THIS particular point and time is VERY premature. Give the movie time, give the sequel time, let it evolve. You may end up being more pleasantly surprised then you initially thought when it's all said and done.

Just because you haven't seen it yet, by all means DOES NOT mean that you never will.

now now everyone lets not jump to conclusions just yet everyone knows who shops for these figures that robot heroes,/ mighty heroes & many more look like crap the movie cobra commander mask may look better than this one shown here.

look how cobr commander mask is shown in simga 6 i thought that was pretty well done for his character the oficial version in th film just might look better than the toy version.

ive seen these types of figures in stores they look nothing like they should big heads small bodys not enough detail on the face/ bodys when compared to 6inch figures you buy in stores.

they made his mask to fit the film to be realistic allright agree with everyone i hate the mask on this cobra commander but im still schptical & maybe the movie version of his mask will look better than this one we have before us possibley.?

i agree, and have thought the same thing myself...i mean, this is an origin story...i really really think, that based on the written end of RoC, #2 will make many of us old school Joe fans happy...hopefully Hasbro will hear our endless bitching and throw us a bone in #2...

I understand that they may have wanted to make cc look different for the movie, but they really make him look like crap here. It's like they went "lets make him look like a asthmatic, cancer patient dressed up in a pimp suit with random tubes coming out of this head."
