I am just not happy with what IDW is doing so far.

Ripcord should be Stalker in the movie. In my eyes, that who Wayans is playing, not Ripcord.
Female Dialtone...meh...it's okay with me. I liked the character from Resolute.
Heavy Duty/Roadblock makes me mad. If Common doesn't play him the (hopeful) sequel, I will be even more upset.

I've bought all of IDW's G.I. Joe books, but haven't got around to doing more than just flip through them. I thought Roadblock was in the books. That sucks. Except for being from Chicago, I have no time for Heavy Duty. I'd rather them rename Roadblock RB than merge 2 characters. I guess Hasbro hopes we fans think all black characters are interchangeable.
I get the impression that Hasbro doesn't have much respect for their properties. This doesn't stem just from ROC, but goes back all the way to the Transformers animated movie. You know, the one where they killed most of their original first year Generation One characters just so they could "advertise" their new line of toys in the next season of the TV show. Hell, the backlash from that not only made them bring Optimus Prime back to life, G.I. Joe's movie went direct-to-video & Duke did the coma thing instead of dying. I really don't know what's worse, all that death or Bay's 2 horrific movies? Luckily G.I. Joe's worst problem back then was the DIC cartoons. Although it looks like Hasbro is making up for lost time with the Resolute deaths(which only matter if the special goes to series), the sex/name/race changes, the merging of characters, and what looks to be Hasbro's latest crappy movie in ROC. Too bad someone didn't buy up Hasbro instead of them buying up Tonka and the once great Kenner. Maybe G.I. Joe would be treated with more respect and we might see a relaunch of my Hasbro owned guilty pleasures(Gobots, M.A.S.K., and C.O.P.S.).

Is Common a good actor? I've only seen him in Wanted and T4 and he didn't seem to have much charisma. I hate Wayans, but at least he catches your attention on the screen. I do have a friend who loves his music though.

Hasblo can go blow themselves.
I was getting my nose out of joint with this along with how the movie is probably going to suck.
Someone in the offices of Hasblo, they got some numb nuts (I hope whoever you are is reading this) and they got this mind blowing image as to what G.I.Joe is supposed to represent.
It could go all the way down the hall to Goldners office. Could be his wife!
Whatever it is, they think they have to appeal to the mass market on a global scale.
Lets get all the attention we can by modernizing the concept for modern anti-discrimination and affirmative action principles we can.
My question is why isn't Roadblock a Red Chinese? Give him a yellow star tattoo on his chest and a Chairman Mao hat!
We could also make Jinx a North Korean commando!
Lets not forget Scarlett. She is from the Sudan and is Muslim. She prays several times a day in the direction of Mecca and has her very own prayer room at the pit. The east wall is painted yellow so she knows where to face while she prays. After all, it gets confusing while living underground.
In the rebooted continum Snake Eyes is a former French mime. He trained in paris and later went on to be a circus acrobat and studied fencing from the French masters. He was recruited by the French Special Branch Counter Terrorism unit where he recieved extensive commando training. He is a master Savate champion and he also owns a wolf who goes by the name "Shue Shue"!
G.I.Joe will exist in my heart as the way it did in the 80's.
I hope whoever is desecrating the essence of G.I.Joe eventually gets fired for having too many bad ideas.
I got a bad feeling about this but all the changes Hasblo is making is going to back fire on them.
Lets just wait and see.
