S6 toys were really cool, solid, well-articulated, and stylish. they very first gi joe purchase i made since the early 90's was two sigma six, a 25 cp, and 25th torpedo. i sold the S6 on ebay but they were really cool!

There's a wide range of G.I.Joe fans.
Anything you can think of, some Joe fans will love it and other will hate it. Think of the lamest G.I.Joe character you can think of. Believe it or not, that character has fans.
That's what comes from a line lasting as long as it did. New people in and old people out because of age, and everyone thinks that the era they were in, was the best one, and everything else is crap.
When people open up and begin to take in G.I.Joe as a whole, they'll be able to enjoy it a lot more.
Looking for at reasonable prices:

Don't forget production companies are trying to satisfy both fans and have a mass market appeal. The costume changes are needed to give the movie more of a "realistic feel". Not all patrons to the movie are gonna be joe fans, and likely could get into the futuristic concept, thus spawning new fans to help carry the torch for years to come.

Is it illogical? I find it hard to except, what seems to be the forbidden rule in costumes of color, "It won't translate". Yes, there costumes are ridculously colorful, but thats what made us fans gavitate towards the property in the first place. Colorful costume to match there equally flamboyant names.
Heres the scenario, walk with me. 'You and your friend are talking about comic book, science fiction, cartoon, etc. movies and you say, "hey, can't wait till they make a G.I.Joe movie based on RAH figures', and your homeboy says,'yeah, as long as they change the costumes because thats just not realistic."
That is not realistic. I've never, and I mean never said any sh!!t like that, nor heard any sh!!t like that in any of my circles. When Spider-Man came out, who happens to sport a colorful costume, I didn't want change. I didn't want realism delivered through attire. I wanted realism delivered through script and dialogue.
To try and justify the bad nature of colors on the characters through the usage of Street Fighter, is just a sluggish thought process. Street Fighter was just bad. Bad direction, bad acting, bad story, bad character focal point, and Van Damm. Just plain bad. The fact they were even wearing the costumes is the reason I bought it, which is housed in my collection as 'Guilty Pleasure'.
So now were left with a plethora of movies to follow suit in the trendy 'black is better' format. How can a movie like Watchmen exist if black pleather is the way? Street Fighter in a much more compitent directors hands would have delivered alot more believability.
So now, in this day and age, the fortitude of clothing is the template of reality. When has it become fashionable to inject stringent borders on ideas of the fantastic.
G.I.Joe is shaping up to be a decent military movie, but not a "G.I.Joe" movie.

I have to say I like how the costumes look. Every one has a different take on what they want the movie to be. It is what it is; accept it. I really liked the trailer and I'm more than happy the line has lasted this long.

"I don't like the outfits because I find them boring" is an opinion.
"I don't like the outfits because G.I. Joe is about individuality" is illogical. there are many examples throughout the history of G.I. Joe, namely the generic military 12' figures, that dispute the concept that G.I. Joe is dependent upon individuality, so any argument to the contrary is illogical.
I'll concede that individual outfits added to the appeal of the RAH line, but that in no way means standard outfits will somehow prevent any RAH inspired line to be successful, which is a pretty common argument. that, as well, is illogical.
