On the positive side, I think the sculpts are for the most part incredible. They look very accurate and highly detailed. I don't like the large missile launchers, but it looks like Hasbro is doing the smart thing and not permanatly attaching them to the figs or ditching the other, more appropriate accessories (just like they've been doing with the Clone Wars line). Those of us that don't like them can just toss them aside... can I count that as a positive?
I love the Heavy Duty figure... looks fantastic.
On the negative side, this is the most boring group of figures I could imagine of a GI Joe movie. Is there going to be a single color other than black, grey, or olive in this entire line? Hate how they don't seem to have much individuality to their costumes.
Don't like it if they've really changed the card sizes. But I guess it's understandable as shelf space is at a premium, and I suppose my closets could use a break too.
Couldn't be less interested in seeing them turn even more of the characters I like into "movie style" figures by slapping their head on the standard monochrome outfit like they've done with Shipwreck here.
I think the Marvel figures are coming at a perfect time... they will be getting my Joe money until we get more classic or Resolute figures. I really hope they will return to the classic cards when/if that happens too. I expect I may want a Heavy Duty, Snake Eyes, and Storm Shadow from the movie, but so far it's looking like that will be about it. And of course maybe a cool vehicle or two if there are any (haven't been impressed with the ones I've seen so far).

I may not pick up many of the basic figures, but I will army build many of the Cobra troops as well as the MARS soldiers. Hasbro may not be putting out everything I would like to see but basic army building figures will be a welcome addition to my collection.

I like them
I'm not sure if like them too as Gi Joe figures, but they're still good figures. I don't care about the giant dildo/weapons i can throw them away since the rest of the equipment is good.
In any case, i think they look way better than greenshirts, so they can be great to make a squad or something like that. They remindme a bit of starship troopers... Shocwave's roughnecks
Lot of potential for customs. I bet that even haters would buy some of those.

We need a happy medium between the crap 12" they produce and the insanely expensive stuff Sideshow releases.
Sorry, couldn't resist!
I will say though that I am happy the Joes have an emblem now. Something to go next to the Cobra stickers on my Mustang.
