Single cards would keep the classic explosion back style with a painting of the character. The "Rise of COBRA" movie logo would replace the Cartoon/Comic, etc. logo in the corner. I'd go back to the silver foil logo and border like the 25th cards had, AND THERE WOULD BE THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE STRIPES AFTER THE GIJOE NAME.
I'd keep releasing classic and Resolute characters in the case assortments. There wouldn't be as many of them while the movie was out, but they'd still be coming out.
I'd have packaged the vehicles not in window boxes, but in the classic box style with a painting of the vehicle on it and a window box for the driver. Classic vehicles would also keep getting released, just not as many.
Basically I would just incorporate the movie toys into the present line rather than put the Modern line on hold and repackage them in a new style. Am I wrong???

I think the movie packaging should be different from the Modern Era. The movie packaging matches what Hasbro has been doing for other lines. It still says G.I. Joe but doesn't match the Modern Era so it makes it seem as if there's two seperate Joe toys out there.
It's a good move. If the movie toys flop, the rest of the line won't be affected as much because they aren't the same. Packaging being different creates a dissassociation between the two lines and makes them distinct.
Star Wars, the Legacy and Clone Wars packaging is the same, so it's hard to tell which figure belongs to which line. So they're all stocked on the same pegs and gets mixed up.
The Joes won't have that issue, because the two lines won't be mixed on the shelves.
But the window boxes for the vehicles are stupid. I hate having hte figures "posed" or on the vehicles. What makes 'em even worse is that alot of the times they're missing helmets and accessories.
Take the UBP for example. It's great cause they are posed and re-enacting a battle, but it looks odd because there are no helmets. CC especially looks silly with the completely chrome head.
If the helmets were on the figures, then it would have been awesome packaging.

You would have been fired
Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."
