Judging by the pics of that Rock Slide vehicle prototype, That thing is a piece of sh=t.
Well Hasbro, we all know that your a buisiness and all and don't give a rats ass about releasing things for the collector as long as your making profit, but you just threw away your meal ticket.
Well, to put it plain and simple YOU JUST KILLED GI JOE.
You see it looks like the crappy era of GI Joe vs Cobra, Valor vs Venum, Spy Troops has returned. I see the crappy action/sound attack is back also.
Well its been a nice run w/ the 25th line and it was fun while it lasted.
Now its time for the new crap to take over and I think we all understand why. Because it looks like Hasbro is trying to make the GI Joe brand name reborn again but this time w/ a new generation of kids. I will bet you that Hasbro will probably get McDonalds to promote the movie.
But there still might be some hope left. Us collectors can only hope that the:
the movie will flop
the video game flop
the new toy line will flop
If any of those three things are a sucess and hasbro starts raking in the profits then we are finished for good.
So until then I will see you all in the year 2032 if Hasbro desides to do a GI Joe 50th Anniversary line.
I'm out and it has been a good year.

Its going to have the exact opposite effect. Do we really need to have yet another deaths ofs za line OMGZ topic on the forum. You would think you guys would be over it by now.
All the Movie haters need to realize the effect the movie failing would have on G.I. Joe as a Brand. The good far exceeds the bad even if you do not like what the movie has to offer. It opens a ton of doors to expand the Joe Line far beyond what we have today.
It's give and take guys. There is something for everybody when you see the full movie line. Wait for it!!!!!!!!!

Wow I am really sick of threads like this. I myself have no hope what so ever for this movie, and I am completely unimpressed with this line, but some of you take it too far.
Me I hope this line does well, even though I personally have no use for it. If it does well then we will get what we want as well as there will be more money for R&D. My only real gripe is they are putting the current line on hold for this.

I just wish they had gone all out and stuck to the comics/orignal cartoons instead of trying to spin something new and let a director put his own insight and bs into it :(
Stick to thier guns like the writers of Silent hill did with thier movie version, not allow stuipdness to infiltatre thier original vision.
Too many movies have tried to do that and it just does not cut it for me. Street Fighter movie comes to mind and Mortal Kombat (I liked Mortal Kombat the first one but it was to much to tell in such a short flick)
