ii don't mind the power suits all looking the same, if they tried to indivisualize them too much, we'd end up with power rangers, and that would be bad.
Wolverine. If i remember the original weapon x storyline correctly, he was chosen at random, the team had tried several people, and none were survivng the bonding process. His healing factor was discovered by the project members AFTER they started the bonding process.
Bone claws. i though his body just grew them to replace the missing adamantium ones after they were tore out? he had them all along eh?

YUP you said it!!!
I really hope this movie works well...I just can't give it any faith as of right now and perhaps until I see the trailer.
The time has come for the Cobra to rise up and reveal himself. You will call me... Commander!

Overall, Iím impressed. I have bin wanting to start collecting Joe again but did not like the rout it was going. The first time I seen the 25th Anniversary put me over the edge. I would like to more of the core troops dun first before v2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9ÖÖ..

One one hand, I don't mind some unifying elements to the costumes.
On the other hand, good guys shouldn't be in all-black. The all-black look individualizes SE. Too bad , he doesn't stand out so much more.
Also, the bad guys will be wearing dark blue/close-to-black. Good guys and bad guys shouldn't be wearing similar outfits.
Finally, to those that say the original costumes would be too cheesy....which ones would be too cheesy in live action? Scarlett? Okay, I'll give you that one. Duke? He's got olive drab pants and a khaki shirt. Is that too cheesy? What about Ripcord? All greenland camo. Hawk? Greenland camo and a bomber jacket. I just don't understand saying that the original toy designs are outlandish, when most of them are based on real types of military clothing.

Well the black suits are ok, but i am hoping that Lorenzo Bonaventura's promise in an interview with collider.com that it won't just be black suits for everyone (with the exception of Snake Eyes) and everyone will be seen in different suits besides from the power suits.

It is very easy to use black color when you don't have any idea of what to do. GI Joe is exactly the opposite of this thought. When you use black everywhere (bad guy, good guy, vehicles) you simply ruin the whole thing.
In history of GI Joe, the use of black color means a very precise thing: the mystery of SE (forget the last issues of the comic). I really do not want that GI Joe become a MatriX-Men movie ... especially when the characters created by Mr Hama are so different and interessant.

I picked very satisfied, and I am, but there's always room for change. My gripes are minor and given time I'm sure all will be addressed.
Edit - Whoops, I didn't realize this was about the movie, sorry.

are we talking the Transformers G1 cartoon or GI Joe Cartoon?
because BOTH took place in the 80's. the Transformers MOVIE took place in 2005, with the following season being 2006.
the original transformers was contemporary to its time, which was around '83 - '84 i think. check my dates on that. the movie was supposed to be in the future.
i don't necessarily think that GI Joe should be based in the 80's ( just wanted to clear up an appearant error ).
i think the story is very good in that you can move it up. make the 'vietnam war' into the 'iraq war.' then you could keep pretty much everything else very much the same.
someone made a point that hollywood likes to create. i totally agree. they don't want to tell someone else's story, so they change some stuff. they don't have a background in the story, so some of it being changed to fit their world view might seem like a total heresy to some of us.
that would be the problem. you have people who don't care, or know, changing things that are big to the story.
i'd be anything that they didn't do any focus groups, etc, to check on changes. one person remembered GI Joe. he remembered that it was the army.
"hey, what if it was international, with people from everywhere? that would be better, and sell more tickets. "
"ok, sounds good."
"now, let's talk about the characters. what if we have the stereotypical 'hard ass' woman, and she gets hit on by the stereotypical best friend / hard ass, and then he gets her to show her softer side. . . that would be great."
