This is not a thread to bash the movie or the toy line. Keep all negative opinions without rational explanation to yourself. Constructive criticism is fine.
I've seen several comments of people claiming outright that they won't by the movie toys, because they won't be G.I.Joe to them, because Channin Tatum is not Duke or they'll have action features, etc...
I'm not going to tell anybody to buy anything they don't want to, but I'm looking forward to the movie line.
First off, Hasbro said the figures themselves won't have action features, so throw that spring loaded missile launcher in your junk box. We all have one.
The figures are going to look like the actors and not like the characters and they're going to be in all black.
I say great! We'll have 5 or 6 characters all in black that don't look like our current Joes. There's a SWAT squad ready to be lead by Shockwave!
We'll have an Arctic squad to assist Snow-Job.
Dennis Quaid doesn't look like Hawk? Fine. Make him another General.
JGL sucks as Cobra Commander? Fine. Have your real Cobra Commander string him up as an impostor.
I'm betting the Scarlett and Baroness action figures will look better than the ones we have, and Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow will be cool versions as well.
Have fun with it and use your imaginations. Plus, just think of all the custom fodder!
Remember, like my grandmother used to tell me, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
And she wondered why I never talked much...
Looking for at reasonable prices:
25th Defense of Cobra Island 7-pack, PoC City Strike Destro, Ren Storm Shadow

Agreed. At least we'll get some new female sculpts for customs and possibly some cool new vehicles. I don't suspect that I'll buy alot of them, but the break from the curent line will allow me to concentrate on troop building. So I'm excited about them.

I am very optimistic. From what i have seen with the toy previews so far and the few shots of the movie, i am keeping a positive outtake on what will happen with both...I was at first not going to collect the movie line just because of income, but it looks like i will be a collector of the movie line. Just probably not as intense as i am right now...
Selling my entire collection... Check it out...

very simply I have no hope for the figures..Perhaps has custom fodder yes but as far as being cool the answer is hands down no for me. Now the vehicles, rocklside aside, I do hold hope for especially the nightraven and possible terrordrome. Not too keen on the hummer thing, but I dont consider anything other than military grade humvees and the original civilian release hummer a hummer. SO I will hold out hope for certain vehicles but thats about as good as it gets for me personally.

the current G.I. Joe Brand Management team is the best the brand has had since the 80's. the same creativity and enthusiasm for the characters and mythos that they use to make the 25th line so great will also be utilized in making the movie toys. Hasbro aren't nameless, faceless entities, these are real people who bring real sets of skills to making the Joe toys -- skills most of you already applaud, so to think they will somehow lose that skill and creativity just because you may not like the movie is just irrational.
these guys not only know what works and what doesn't work for G.I. Joe, but also how to make great toys in general. You can't have anything but faith in their abilities to translate that in the movie line with the work they have proven so far with G.I. Joe.
