I think there will be good & bad. But at least the bad ones would still make for new tooling custom fodders.

Hey everyone! Ok, I am NOT trying to be extremely critical I for one am a little worried about the film being any good however after seeing the teaser clip I am SO excited!
However, the thing that really makes depresses me is that Hasbro is repainting what seems likes going to be loads of stuff and passing it off as stuff from the movie..if I wanted to use other toys other than movie toys for actual movie I'd use my Polly Pocket figures man I wonder if Hasbro will be making mostly new figures..that I'd prefer..
..or maybe what will happen is down the line they will take that Cobra Mole thing which has such a lack of detail and a repainted Croc Master and make an actual movie based version...figure and all. I hope because again, I think the designs and movie so far are looking awesome...but for now I'm so let down.
The Baroness figure seems to look pretty cool at least :(

Looking at just the pictures of the ShipWreck Movie figure, I can use his head to make Devil's Due Comic version of him by slapping it on the body of the blue FireFly (from the Resolute wave(wave 13)
And since they all look like they'll fit "off screen", I really hope Hasbro will re-release the 2005 DTC vehicles as part of the movie wave, so we can get them at retail. (Instead of from E-tailers)

I actually think I'll like the toys more than the film, in spite of the black Croc Master/Terra-Viper thing.

I think some of this stuff will be great, I want a tan armadillo, and the mole pod is classic for villains of any age. Some of this will be poop, but thats the way with all lines. ( except Indiana Jones, that line ruled and got killed off just when it was getting good)

I really like the Shipwreck I saw today, it looks awesome. I cant wait for Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. The Baroness looks pretty good, remember what we have been seeing is not the finished product. General hawk looked flawless and I cant wait to see Scarlett, Destro and Cobra Commander and lets not forget about those cool ass Cobra Troopers we saw....
So i have my hopes up big time.

I think that people have to realize that these are toys first and collectibles second. As we all know toy companies like Hasbro try to do their best to make us adult collectors happy, but lets face it these are toys and children come first.
As we have seen in the past most of the movie based toy lines have been targeted more towards kids than they have towards adults. This is especially true when it comes to the colors used and the accessories that come with the figures. Just look at all of the Batman and Spider-Man movie toys in the past. As adult collectors do we really need 10 different Batman figures that come in every color of the rainbow and comne with accessories that Batman has never even used? No those toys are not for us, but kids may love them. This is why there are extra toy lines that spark our interests instead like the Batman Movie Masters, Marvel Legends, and DC Universe Classics. Those lines seem to keep true to what they are representing.
When it comes to this G.I. Joe movie line I don't see any differences. We have already seen oversized spring loaded weapons that are due to be included with the figures, as well as the vehicles. I'm sure there will be some outrageous colors used as well. Will this steer me away from buying any movie figures at all...no but I don't think I will be purchasing them all.
So far I really like the sculpt for the Baroness figure. I think she will be a definite purchase. I also collect everything I can with Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, so I will pick them up as well. When it comes to Cobra Commander and Destro I would pick up masked versions of them only because I really like masked characters. I don't think I would display any of these figures with their spring loaded weapons though.
As far as the other figures are concerned I'm not so sure if I'm sold on them yet. I know I really don't care for the Breaker figure that was shown, so he might not become part of my collection. I liked the head on the Shipwreck figure, so I might consider him. I would also like to see what Scarlet looks like. I think the figure would look good in the black suit as long as she doesn't look too similar to the Baroness.
One thing that I did notice about the trailer was that it didn't look too militaristic. I don't know if they are going to be using many realistic weapons, or going the futuristic weapons route instead. This might be one of the reasons these figures have sring loaded weapons.
I think I will just take the "wait and see" approach until we see more of the line.
