I would be fine with it being "bloodless" and keeping the violence off screen, but i never accept animation that is "dumbed down".
most of the best cartoons (Samurai Jack, Batman:TAS & the DCAU, Loony Tunes, Animaniacs, Tiny Tunes, the early cartoon netwoork projects) were never dumbed down just because they were aimed at kids.
I'd have no problem with it being aimed at kids, but yes, i would have a problem with it being "dumbed down" ~ we've got the Sunbow cartoon if we wanted to see that.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

ill be pissed if hasbro decideds to something like that hasbro has been making a habit of pissing me off more latly than ttrying to please me as fan/collector which can be explained in transfomrers section.
on topic it would suck if they decide to that look at the animted series justice league, batman animated series, batman beyond & the movie from the series return of the joker those series both have bulletes in the series & blood not as much as resolute would but batman has 4 to 5 series superman only 3 justice league maybe 3, justice unlimited 2 seasons each every show i mentioned has blood in the show do this to gijoe would be just an excuse.
if they decide to keep it same or not kids are going to find away to watch this anyway if there gijoe fan look at the kid that was mimiking the move fro mthe naruto series cartoon network pissficaly shows M for mature content and the kid is watching that show with blood, & swearing and died from mimiking from one of the ninjas from naruto tv series anyway and the unrated uncut of that show is showing at 12 midnight so hows is a kid at 10 died from mimking one of the movies from one unrated,uncut anime shows thats showing late at night so little kids cant watch but did anyway, either way if its toned down or not kids are going to find a way too see this show one way or another that has acces to internet.
as long they dont change the style of the aniamtion ill be somewhat satified with that.

I voted HELL NO, but truthfully I would watch it. I voted that way because overall I mostly excited about finally getting a great version of Joe for us, the fan that grew up with it. I should say YES as well though because come on, no ones fooled, I would watch it if they changed it. Now it might not hold my interest or be something that I would tune in for every week, but I would watch it still.
The idea and a lot of what we've rec'd from the Resolute line has kicked a$$ so far. PLEASE H-Bro, don't f this up,...you've already made the movie questionable. GIVE US RESOLUTE THE WAY IT WAS INTENDED (except get rid of the ridiculous 5 min webisodes!)!

Heeeeelllllllllllll no I would not be ok with them dumbing down Resolute. If they were going to do such a thing then why not keep making more sigma 6 cartoons, that was nice and dumbed down. Resolute shouldn't be like the old Sunbow or DIC cartoons or like Sigma 6. It should have it's own place seperate from the other series. I want something GRIMEY with cobras getting shot and swords slicing body parts. This series could have a really gritty feel to it if done right and fit right in with the hardcore anime titles that a lot of adults love. Or Hasbro can do a 360 and say they need yet another pg cartoon for 5 yearolds in order to sell more toys at the big store. I don't know...I wouldn't be surprised if this is what ends up happening at the last minute.

As one of the fans who has been chomping at the bit for this series, I would be very upset to see it go soft... Just like so much in our society.

I voted yes, I can live with the fact that they dont kill anyone cause in my opinion any idiot can kill off a character but good writer develops a character even the lesser known ones. I just think there gonna introduce someones favorite character(most likely one of mine), just to kill them 15 min. later just to prove how bad ass another one his. I can understand offing a trooper or a grunt soldier here and there, but anything other then that within the first 5 episode is just bad. Take Destro for example, he never kill anyone, he's not a ninja, but everyone knows that Destro has always a been kick ass character. nuff said

I would accept any alternative to this dog of a movie they're pushing this year.
I'm worried that they're holding back Resolute since they can't properly market it in any significant way that wouldn't compete with this upcoming bomb of a flick. Then when this piece of garbage of a film opens, bombs, and gets ignored out of the theaters, they're going to say, "Well, I guess GI Joe doesn't sell. Dump Resolute."
They're backing the wrong horse!

What the OP seems to fail to comprehend in the initial obviously biased post is by marketing it to collectors, those who are already fans, already purchasing the toys... you're not growing the brand.
This brand cannot survive on collector's alone. That is a proven fact time and time again. The fanbase isn't large enough to support it.
By Sunbow'ing the cartoon you open up the potential of catering to a new audience that will grow the brand and bring in new collectors and fans. By keeping the cartoon only geared to adults and collector's you are severely limiting your target audience and in a sense wasting the product on a target audience that isn't going to grow your brand.
Maybe it's time the OP and those who share similar views finally realize it's not only about them, it's about the brand. There's a larger world out there, it's nice to see many can see that, including those who manage the brand.
