If there was a movie with starring Papa Smurf as Gen. Hawk Smurf, Brainy as Duke Hauser Smurf, Hefty as Snake Eyes Smurf, Smurfette as Scarlett, Gargamel as C.C. and Azrael as S.S. and the movie was called G.I. Joe Smurf, the Yo Joe Lemmings would say how great it is to finally see G.I. Joe on film, this will save the franchise, make reaching and baseless explanations on how the Smurf version of the movie is based in the foundations of the comic book and cartoon, since it isn't the 80's anymore we have to accept new interruptions of the Joe legend, and the naysayers shouldn't be critical of a film they haven't seen.

I like the new figures, they're growing on me. Didn't like the Vipers at first, but got 'em in hand and my opinion changed.
It's a new take. Nothing wrong with it. Nothing wrong or "lemming" about liking it.
You said it yourself, different strokes for different folks.
It's when people, the ones that like 'em or the ones that don't, start questioning the "fan"ness of people and call them lemmings that we start to have problems.
I've never been a fan of the Crimson Guard or Python Patrol. But those have their fans. Should I go around and start knocking on people that are head over heels for them just because I'm not? Hell no. They're allowed to like what they like just like I'm allowed to like what I like.
We're all Joe fans here.

The way I see it, if you do not like the movie toys, there is always the secondary market like eBay and whatnot for you to go and buy all of the original Joes that you so dearly cling to. Were the original 3 3/4 Joes awesome? you bet, among the best toys ever created. Are the new ROC figures awesome? You bet.
What I would like to know is this: When I was a kid and was buying up all the original blue troopers, then Hasbro came out with these goofy silver masked Cobra Commander wannabes called "Vipers", but I got over it and learned to love them. Are you ROC haters the kids who never got over the blue troopers being replaced with CC wannabes?

Isn't there a sticky'd thread somewhere where people can go and complain about the ROC designs? If not, there should be, because I find it hard to believe that so many people have not already read the 20+ other threads dedicated to this topic.
The movie toys are not all winners, but a lot are cool. The Vipes look weird but when I find those Crimson ones, they're all mine.
