When were their flying motorcycles in the trailer? I saw two snowmobiles being launched out of a submarine that had just crashed up through the ice.
Looked pretty cool to me.
Looking for at reasonable prices:

I've read all the negative opinions about the movie, and I'll admit that I've had my reservations, but I am going to reserve judgement until I've actually sat and watched it from beginning to end.
Some of you are concerned that this will destroy G.I. Joe, and others are upset because you've wanted a movie for Joe for so long and have imagined what it would (and should) be like and from what we've seen, has not lived up to your expectations. And some of you feel that G.I. Joe has been betrayed by sell outs. You're not alone, I've had the same thoughs and feelings as well.
But G.I. Joe is timeless. The oil embargo of the 70's and the Vietnam War knocked Joe down but it didn't kill him. Some bad planning and decisions left a bad taste in the mouths I.E. The Joes of the late 70's for those of you from of that generation, and Extreme and Sgt. Savage of my generation. But we kept collecting and we kept caring.
Keep in mind though; all that Joe has has been through, they have always been changing, always growing and evolving. From the Movable Man of Action to a small elite group of 9 to the nearly 200 plus member force.
I havn't always liked what Hasbro or their corporate partners have done with G.I. Joe, but I never stopped caring because I knew that they would bounce back, they always have and they always will.
Try to look at this way. I've mentioned this before with the Transformers crossovers. Look at the movie like Resolute, or the Reloaded Comic series, or even the new IDW Comics or the cartoons of the eighties. Treat it as a continunity of its own, in it's own universe. Similar to the others but totally independent of one another.
So it's not going to be a direct from the comic/toys to the big screen. I'm a little dissapointed that we will not see such a movie, but I'm not going to turn my nose up at it because of it.
As far as this movie is concerned, it is just another evolution in the continuing life of G.I. Joe. There are new uniforms, new weapons, new stories, just as we've seen for decades. Some will like it some will not. But Joe will always be there.
Heck. How may uniforms has Snake Eyes gone through in the last 27 years? We still love him right?
Despite my reservations, I'm going to give it a chance because it is still G.I. Joe.

I can honestly say I remain objective because though it looks to be pretty stupid, I'll still see it. The only thing that makes me a hater is when a change for the worse is embraced and not saying it should be hated, but at least it should be questioned. Those toys don't look good, but I know there will be many a fan boy out in droves the day of release, probably even fan boys who say they hate the toys will scoop them up like they're going out of style. BTW when is the toy release day I'd like to prove my hypothesis. Day after transformers 2 release toys there where nary a transformer to be found until the next day. But now they're out in force, I imagine the movie release will change that.
