man i couldnt disagree more with you, resolute is pure awesomeness, i havnt seen the movie but i can tell you right now it wont have anything on resolute.
expecially the part when you talk about movie toys, are you serious? movie toys are garbage compared to the resolute figs. there is no comparison. the vehicles are a joke and to me i just hate everything about the movie toys.
and the costumes in the movie, for real? have you seen how cheesy they all look? its a insult to gijoe fans in my opinion, personally im very disapointed with everything about the movie that weve seen so far, its like a embaresment to gijoe fans in my personal opinion. talk about insult to injury, the toys are just awful, im still bummed about it.
and realism, are you kidding me? who wears exo suits, lol, gijoe was started on unrealistic cartoon style moves, thats what made it so cool. and from the trailer, the movie doesnt look so realistic either. about the only thing i can agree with you on is that sierra miller is hot. thats about it.

I'm seeing the movie just for my boyhood fantasy of Sienna Miller as a "real life" Baroness.

I think you gentlemen do not understand the SITUATION.
You are arguing from a perspective that no longer exists -that your complaints will be heard. The movie has been made, it's waiting to be released... there is nothing left for us to demand of them, because its OVER.
Now, take yourselves out of the equation. Look at this with rational eyes. If you are not convinced that Hasbro knows we aren't happy with ROC, I can't help you. Try to believe me that they know, and maybe that will comfort you.
The GI Joe movie MUST do well. Why? Because if it doesn't THE TOYS WILL END. Hasbro will not draw the line at movie product -the damage that a multi-million dollar bomb will cause will be catastrophic.
Do you legitimately think that Resolute - as amazing as it is - will make up for the huge financial loss of a box office flop?
Do you think I'm happy with the movie? No! I think it's awful! It embarasses me as a GI Joe fan. I should be able to rub my friends noses in the fact that GI Joe the Movie is coming out... but I can't. It's disgusting. We fans are good enough to sell their 'regular' product to, but as soon as Hasbro wants a broader sales demographic, we're forgotten like we were never there at all.
I am telling you, this is a 100% business fact... if the movie does not succeed, Hasbro will not rationalize. It will panic and you can say GOODBYE to GI Joe as we know it.
Go see the movie. Hate the movie, make fun of it... but don't abstain out of spite... because you are only hurting yourselves.
PS - If it's any consolation, I also hate the new Transformers movies... but I go see them because I want Classics and Legends to keep on coming.

man it will be like the TF movie. the toys are crap but some ppl like them. it gave TF a boots but they stop the line to just give move figs.
now with joe it will suck becuse it is aimed at kids. it is a S6 movie with some bad looking costumes and stupid plot. most of the toys look like crap. i say 10% are good but the rest are bad.
now if the movie dose bomb it shows them nothing but that they need to stick with what joe is about like res did. res had both the comic & cartoon rolled up in to one killer show. it keept going and didnt not start it all over agin. some things where changed but not enough for it to do any real harm. joe is a cartoon and should stay that way. like alot of movies coming out that where toons go to live action and they cant do that much with them.

I agree with Tom-1 that we should all go see the movie regardless of how good or bad it is. You can bet if the movie does poorly in ticket sales then it will surely have a negative effect on the toys. Personally Iagree with most Tankers that this movie will be a steaming pile, but if its that bad at least we can look at it as a spoof....Marlan Wayans....seriously

I'm hoping against hope that the movie isn't as bad as we all think it's going to be.
Truth be told, we've only seen a 30 second Superbowl clip 3 months ago. A full trailer will be a better indication of what we're in for.
I just hope it's not an awful movie.
Baroness looks hot, right?

Rise of Cobra will make money on the 1st weekend, not because it will be good, but due to our curiosity as joe fans and false hope that it will surprise us

I'm hoping that ours is not a false hope and I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt until I actually see it at the theater. Like many, I am skeptical as I was skeptical of the Transformers movie which turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise, in my opinion...

I was really liking RESOLUTE up until the "ending". WTF is up with that ending ?? Are you kidding me ??????? Cobra didn't even put up a fight, and what the hell were they doing in Springfield ?? CC hiding out at a WalMart ?? LOL Seriously ?? When Duke mentioned heading to Springfield the first thing I thought of was the Simpsons. Ending was too quick.

I'm not saying ROC tanking will help, it won't. I'm not doing much with the ROC stuff but going to see the movie (everyone one of us has their interest peaked), buying a Shipwreck (of all figures), and might pick up 1 or 2 more. The rest of it, could all catch fire on it's way to the states and I'd be fine with that.
