Does not really excite me but I am not knocking ether. I mean is it that different from some of the stuff that came out back in the day?

The name being a reference to an Avalanche may turn out to be apt: I have a horrible vision of retailers being knee-deep in these, unable to shift them.
I'd like to think that the first movie figure we've seen uses an existing figure because those parts were already available, and Hasbro is still working on new tooling, rather than it being because the movie line will depend heavily on pre-existing tooling.
As for the vehicle: To me, it seems over stylized.... yet at the same time it somehow looks very generic. Half snowmobile, half AGP.
I hope this isn't indicative of the standard we can expect from the movie line.
If it is, it stands to damage the G.I.Joe brand as a whole. Retailers won't distinguish between the 25th and movie lines, they'll just see a shelf full of unsold G.I.Joe toys and will back off on support for G.I.Joe as a whole.
I was trying to be neutral on the movie, and how it will affect the toyline in general....... Now....... i'm staring to see things in a more negative light. :-(

Looks accurate to the picture from the movie... which is to say it looks ridiculous. I'm not knocking the movie, which I know nothing about - just saying this looks like... well, crap. It would be a great CORPS! vehicle, though.
edit: there could be some potential as custom fodder, I can kind of envision a couple of things.

S'OK. Surprised Snow Job 25th is with this...
Need to see more of the Movie '09 line as a whole as I'm positive there will be some good in there.
Thanks for the preview!
