yeah... I'm guessing Atkins might have had a filtered story here... I doubt Hasbro doesn't hold that trademark right now.
It's probably so when the movie hits and people start reading the comic they arn't like "wow, this is nothing like the movie... it sucks! the people who wrote the comic don't even know the big black dude is called Heavy Duty... and what's this crap about him being a gourmet chef?"

First off, thanks for the comments. I take alot of this in when it comes to suggestions. heh I'll be the first to admit those boots on some of the designs were alittle large. Being well into pages I must say there are no Frankenstein boots to worry about.
About Roadblock, I dont know first hand why the need for a name change. But it was discussed between the editors and myself, and the Roadblock character will be called Heavy Duty in the Joe books.
This isnt to match up with the movie, because there will be a movie adaptation book, but the main series called for the HMG character and I was told to base the designs off of Roadblock. I dont have the full scoop and there has been alot of speculation over the matter.
But what I have heard is that Hasbro had unintentionally allowed the rights to the name Roadblock to expire. I dont know if this was pre-movie production and they are under the same restrictions as the comic, or if for some reason the current toys that have already been produced and distributed are exempt from the name change.
I do know for a fact that the character we'll see in the upcoming Joe main title will be the Roadblock character, but refered to as Heavy Duty.
I dont know what that means for the existing Heavy Duty character. I assume he wont be used, atleast not in the comics.
