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.........

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.

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.

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.
