They seem to be putting a lot on this movie. I mean so far we've seen articles in People, Wired, etc. Is this the biggest movie of the year? If so, then those of us who like the movie toys will have a lot of competition from those who want a Tatum/Miller figure.
Oh yeah, Sienna Miller looks much better with dark hair.

These look pretty to good to me for movie figs, which generally suck compared to their comic/animated versions. I'm talking about Spider-Man, X-Men, Hulk, Superman etc. Star Wars may be the exception. It's tough to translate real actors into decent-looking 3 3/4" plastic versions of themselves. I think these do a good job, especially with the likenesses. It's easier to translate animated or drawn characters to tiny plastic; the audience is much more forgiving, IMO.
I don't know if they're for me, but I'm sure I'd be highly motivated if I like the film. Kinda like beer goggles: things look generally "better" when you're "feelin' good".

What i see:
-Fine painting. I'm still not convinced about the baroness metal studs on the "armor", but that's always quite difficult.
-Great sculpts, very detailed, and they resemble -more or less- the actors. I would like to see more resemblance to actors in the 25th figures.
-They're articulated like 25th figures. The crotch-leg articulation look like it will work very good.
-Acceptable gear. There isn't much to see in these pictures, but Duke's equipment looks good.
-Realistic colours. For those (like me) that hate the shiny cartoon like colours. Plus, these figures are proof that we'll get more models than blue camo and black power suit.
-They have good proportions (ok, baroness head looks a bit large, but that's because the body is slimer than should due the articulations)
Now, did they look like Joes?
Not to the original.
Did the movie will suck?
But they're incredible figures all on their own, even better than many 25th figures.
And i don't have a problem with that at all.

I didn't really like the look of the first couple of figures we saw, except for Shipwreck that is. I wasn't planning on buying any movie figures besides Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow and the Baroness, but these new pics might have changed my mind.
By the way does anyone think that the head on that Dennis Quaid "Hawk" figure would make a good head swap for the Falcon figure we've already got?

Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?
