Thanks, guys! One of the cool things about talking to Mr. Hama is that you don't get the feeling that he's a "pitchman" or anything like that in any way. He tells it like he sees it (and feels it), so when he says he really enjoyed the process of the movie, it gives me at least some optimism...

Yes, I agree with what you're saying, Troy, but there's a lot of pride and a feeling of ownership with something that you create, but the object of that creation was bought and sold the moment he gave birth to it. It's like watching your own son grow up in a foster home, while sometimes having the privlege of taking him out for ice cream. Hama isn't going to say anything bad about Hasbro but I just sense some reluctance to say what he really feels about Duke.

If Hama, who created these characters, can enjoy it. I think everybody needs to give it a chance.
Looking for at reasonable prices:

I just think that if it was more frustration then anything else, he wouldn't have gotten involved in the new Joe at IDW. It certainly sounds like he's got plenty of stuff to keep him busy (and keep the money flowing in) so didn't get involved with Joe-IDW for simply money (unless of course huge sums were thrown his way, lol).
I don't think he went into it thinking "I get to play completely free". He knew what working with Hasbro is like, so if it was frustration more then anything, probably wouldn't have done it.
I think it's more of a "why do they like Duke so damn much" kind of thing.

You know, I don't even mind Duke being a front and center character. It's the overuse that I think some people have a problem with. There's so many great characters that we want to see, but so few pages to tell a story. Duke and Scarlett can't carry the whole thing on their backs, and we already know so much about them. I think Origins would be a great opportunity to flesh out some of the supporting characters like Flash or Short-Fuze. Not to a great extent, but enough to create diverging threads of interest.
I just picked up Origins #1 yesterday btw and loved it. I'm really glad that we're getting a slightly more gritty, more edgy GI Joe.

Oh, I forgot to mention something. In Origins, Duke is described by the woman that picks them up in the desert as looking like a Top Sgt, but doesn't IDW #0 indicate that he's an E7 or E6?
