It doesn't have to be "dumbed down" to be suitable for children.
Dumbed down - no.
Less graphic - yes.
Looking for at reasonable prices:

I'd still enjoy it if it ends up being not as adult oriented in overall subject matter. Slightly disappointed? Yeah, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't, but I still think the cartoon can be cool and fresh without having blood or guts (which I don't think there ever was a lot of to begin with.....seems like some fans were just assuming it would be really brutal and bloody).

I would be very disappointed if Resolute got dumbed down. I wish they were 30 min episodes for cartoon network in the evening hours. You know, the new Star Wars Clone Wars episodes have deaths all the time (generic troopers and minor characters) and the kids still watch it. I let my son watch it with me all the time (he's 5). If Resolute dumbed down enough that core Joes and Cobras didn't die, and only greenshirts (with new gear so they were faceless troops) and generic Cobra troops died, and give it that Clone Wars feel (about a war going on between the 2 factions), then you could have a great concept that could be marketable to most kids and all adults.

So is this a "Doom Bunker" scenario (iow not really a current threat), or has it been suggested by anyone in the know that this is a real risk and a reason for the delay?
I think the current Animated Clone Wars cartoon is a great example of what can be done - Clones get capped on a regular basis and often in violent manners and while some story lines are throw-aways (anything involving Jar Jar), many are actually quite good. They've gotten consistently better since the movie for sure. So, hopefully they can take some cues from that and recognize it doesn't have to be complete cheese.
That being said, I couldn't stand the Sigma 6 toon, but I collected a number of the figures. Over the years I've learned that while good media will encourage me to buy more toys (such as Transformers Beast Wars or Animated), I'm not limited by it and I'll still buy stuff that is cool in it's own right.
So - would I like a good show? Yep. Will I still buy cool figures even if the show sucks? Yep.

it is G.I. Joe, can it really get any dumber? I say that with the utmost affection for G.I. Joe, but one of the things I enjoy about it is how ludicrous it is. heck, one of my favorite characters of all time is Big Lob.
