I'm for it, mostly.
I like the cohesive visual styling of both the Cobra and Joe forces. Even though there are some stray RoC figures I'm not going to pick up, (The Wave 1 Baroness just isn't different enough from the ARAH ones to really tickle my fancy) I'm happy with the new figs. I also like seeing honest to god kids being excited about GI Joe. I've seen kids in both Target and TRU (with their equally excited moms and dads), and it warms my heart a bit to see something like this "passed down" to a new generation.

Ill enjoy the movie somewhat, but there are plenty of styling and aesthetic aspects of the film that never should have been tampered with. I am not at all pissed about the Destro-prequel aspect, nanobots, international task force, and various plot points that mirror a typical episode of a saturday morning cartoon. Its -ICONIC- styling being thrown out the window for sub-par 'updated' looks that disappoints me. And to even THINK about messing with the comic book CC origin is sheer stupidity. If imagery and concepts from the early/mid 80s are still moving product 25+ years later, I dont see the point in tampering with it. The kids would enjoy slighty updated Vipers/CC today just as much as we did in our youth. I know there are plenty who disagree, however everyone is entitled to their opinion, I just believe that to embrace the new 'tainted' versions of characters is to spit on all things Joe.
And just to add something...this is from a guy who LIKED what Optimus looked like in the movie. Updated classic look. Ppl were curling up in their bathtubs and weeping uncontrollably that he had a mouth WHICH HE COULD COVER WITH THE CLASSIC FACEPLATE. The majority of Transformers had mouths, he just had a friggin plate to protect it. Stupidity truly never ceases to amaze me.
Yeah, Im off track. But the oceans of tears cried by these idiots fuels me with endless mirth.

so for this to happen joe fans being split like this will kill the line if no new fans join. The other thing is will they stick around like we have for 25+yrs. With today's kids it is a toss up. they might for a yr or 2 then move on to something else. as they all want to grow up to fast.

Have you seen how Transformers works?

I'm going to go into it with low expectations as I did with the first Transformers movie. (with that one, I did not like the designs of the bots, but in the end I really liked the movie for what it was. would I have liked to see less organic looking bots? sure. But I did like the story)
If I keep my expectations low, I will hopefully be impressed and enjoy the movie. It is going to be hard for me to go into it not being a bit more on the negative side. That being said, I am going to reserve judgment until after I actually see the movie.

I like most of the figures and some of the vehicles.
I will say I hate the Vipers and CC.
I have no problem with the ROC change, I still have the past.

I still haven't bought any ROC items yet. I'd rather spend my money on troop building the Cobra 7 Packs and army building the Wave 5 Vehicles. If and when I do buy any ROC, it will be only figures that can go in good with my 25th collection.
As far as the movie goes, I'll go see it, but I'm not happy one bit about what I've seen and heard so far...

So far, I've been digging the movie figs just as much as the 25th figs. While the movie figs don't retain much of the variety of the 25th/Classic lines, they do remind me of the Night Force figs. I should note that I really, really loved the Night Force figs.
Eventually, we will see the movie line branch out and become a bit more distinct. Most likely by November. Look for the Resolute figs to be integrated into the movie line as well. I'm looking forward to the movie (it's supposed to be quite good), and certainly don't mind a new interpretation of one of my favorite pop culture icons.

I have no expectation for the movie. I just want the franchise to do well. I will give my honest opinion on if the movie sucks or not. But so far from the trailers i've seen, it looks to be a good action flick...
