I love both properties and don't see a competition between them at all. Both put money in Hasbro's pocket, thus we get more figures we like. Joes may have been around first, but Star Wars is a megomaniacal giant that will never be toppled. Ask a 100 people who Cobra Commander and most will know, ask the same 100 who Yoda is and they all will know. Star Wars is a world phenomenon whether you like all the movies or not....you know them.

Star Wars transcends Pop Culture and is known by everyone. As someone said "even my Grandmother knows who Chewbacca is". Let's face it, this movie may make Gi Joe more popular but it can never do for pop-culture what Star Wars has. Just not possible.
Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Ewoks, Jabba The Hutt and YODA are names that 8 or 9 out of 10 people you bump into in the streets would know.
Now bump into someone and say the name DESTRO, SE, SS, Cobra Commander, Duke, Hawk and 3 or 4 people may know.
Someone needs to conduct a survey.
