I say boycott the movie toys so Hasbro can re-focus on the classic and Resolute. If you are like me and a child of the '80's, then stick with the originals, dont let the obsession of buying just to buy win you over. By the way, to Xerofall... killer room dude!!! Very similar to what I want to do, but I have to paint first, very cool.

I say forget the movie crap. Save your money and some well needed space. Like all toys based on a movie, these will sit on the shelves and hog up space until they're put on clearance a year later. Besides, Hasbro needs to be taught a lesson in greed. $100 for that crappy PIT thing? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? You think they would have learned when they tried to get gullible folks to buy that $150 Millenium Falcon last year or how about the Ultimate Battle pack? I'm not sure of what became of the Falcon's but the UBP's were on clearance for $15 here and only then did they start to move. Hasbro needs to go back and look at their 80's prices and maybe make the new stuff comparable to that. None of this $100 nonsense for something that would have maybe gone for $40 tops 20 years ago. The inflation rate hasn't been that bad.

If the movie dies on the vine, Hasbro wont simply "refocus" on the classics or Resolute, they'll likely blow the whole thing up and put it on the back burner until they feel like they can "rebrand" it again.

Guys you gotta support G.I. Joe or else we won't have G.I. Joe on the shelves and they haven't released Spaceshot. We can't have an anniversary line without Spaceshot!

I'm not too interested in the movie toy lines... does nothing for me...
Just like the Transformers movie toy line. It looks cool and all... but does nothing for me.
Looking for: 1x ROCC Missile

Wow... you build a room specifically to hold your collection, then you build that large of a collection... and your wife is flipping about a $99 PIT?
Women are nothing if not inconsistent
To answer your question though, do what I'm going to do.
1. Buy zero movie toys.
2. Calculate what you would have spent on movie toys over the next year, an divide by $30
3. Take the quotient and buy that many Cobra 7-pack Exclusives.
