what if we are all wrong and the movie pulls a Transformers on us? i personally like most of what i see from the movie stuff. just be happy with some of the good stuff we're getting and hope that something good will come of it. i hope that joe makes a return in a big way but for that to happen we need to see some change.

I actually think I might purchase that, only for shear novelty.

I have not seen a SINGLE thing from the previews that I will like this movie. none. not SE, not SS, not destro, not the vehicles. the toy line isn't showing any promises either.
I thought Hasbro held back NEW items to spend the budget on the movie line, yet all we are seeing is repainted VvV stuff and a few misc stuff not even figure related.

I really like the gray-shirt ROC Airborne, it kinda has that 1990 Sky Patrol homage. The neon green on the ROC Eels can be easily fixed with a sharpie marker and would look at home on my True Heroes Navy Assault Boat. ROC Desert fatigue Duke looks a lot better than the ARAH Battle Corp Duke. Both versions of ROC Storm-Shadow would look pretty good as bodyguards for CC. I plan on picking up at least one Night Bird and two of the Pitt. Overall, I'll probably be picking up at least 1/3rd of the ROC line, because some of the figures in the ROC line are 25th repaints. The ROC Para-Viper was a fix on a major complaint for most people. And I'm really happy to see the DTC R.H.I.N.O. released at retail, even if I don't care much for the new color scheme. (But at least it's not neon.)

i have no interest in RoC anything and I will NOT pay to watch the movie
i read a script and that was all i needed to make my decision
no amount of cgi and explosions will change the look or story Hasblow has gone with

I can't justify buying things just to support a line.
If Hasbro chooses to run GIJOE into the ground, that's their choice. I hate it, but I'm not going to just accept anything. I didn't buy much JvC, SpyTroops, VvV or Sigma Six stuff, either, though I have bought the hell out of the 25th/Modern line.
As it is, I do plan to pick up a growing number of movie items:
Black COBRA Humvee
Crimson Hydra (maybe)
2 Sting Raiders
Eel and sled (maybe)
Several of the grey/red Para-Vipers if readily available
Ice Viper (maybe a few)
MARS Troopers (maybe)
They've got me with anything Resolute, too.
I don't know if this qualifies for "supporting the line" but this is how I shop.

I will be buying some of the movie toys. But all I want from the vehicles are the drivers.
The vipers are cool looking. But they aren't part of Cobra. They are all part of Cobra-La.
This movie is going to be big.

There's an absolute ton of stuff coming out for RoC that I'll be getting, but I'm not going after the movie figures, sve for a couple of SEs. The rest will only be what I can use in my regular collection, or at least argue belongs there.
