I'll stick with my original Breaker or the 25th anniversary 2-pack figure with bubble gum. Breaker was always one of my favorite figures due to the strikingly vivid artwork apparent on the front of his cardback.
And Said,no qualms to you, but you don't look like your from Gatlingburg Tennesse!
I don't know why everything has to be altered to fit a big budget film release. They have over 25 years of mythos to base a script and character designs from. Why change it now?

GeneralsJoes.com has more loose pics. And yes indeed the jacket does come off
Also his arm articulation looks superb...

Wow, I hope the movie is better then these figures. I refuse to buy these for fear that I might get beat-up at the store. I guess Hasbro really has to re-think those whole multi-generation marketing plan.
I guess I would by these though, I could teach my kids the joys of fireworks.

Thanks to these early reviews, I'm even less inclined to pick these guys up than before. Before I was going to pick up a few of these just to have a U.N. based special forces team the Joes could team up with every now and again. Now they're only going to be used for custom fodder. BAH!!!!! Hasbro clearly doesn't want my money.

Okay, this one has awesome accessories, but is a lame ass figure. The other Joes have been somewhat passable figures with crap accessories, but this one won't even be an extra. What is with the gray urban camo? Does the military really use gray camo like that? It looks as bad as the Iron Man black costumes they're supposedly wearing during part of the film.
Not a total failure like the Cobra Vipers so far, because that gun and laptop are quite cool... Sort of a Joe version of Scrap Iron's weapon, or hell, even an updated version for Scrappy to take over. It'll be going to a Tele-Viper if I end up with it, but I do not want that figure.
He has a goatee, pencil mustache, AND a soul patch. This guy has too many clichť mouth adornments for me. Looks like a Latin King member or something (sorry Zoltron). Stoned. Or apathetic. Those eyes say it all.

the first thing i noticed was the horrible paint application of the hair. at first i thought they were being lazy...but seeing as how all the facial hair is painted on and not sculpted, seems like they'll being recycling this head for a few repaints.
GrapeSoda: i'm not procrastinating....i'm just lazy. oh...wait....

Upon close inspection of these past reviews for the movie line...
EPIC F'N FAIL!!!!
Not a single one so far meets or exceeds a fan's standards. The figures BLOW...the accessories suck Rhino. The figures themselves are BARELY up to kitbash par. and WTF? Is it the 90's?
Way to kill a legend Hasblo. Thanks a lot.

I get the idea behind the need for multi-cultural/multi-nationalism amongst the characters. I'm good with that b/c it makes for an interesting cast of characters. However, using Breaker as an example, why can't they just create a new character who has the same function but isn't a new person using an established code name.
If the argument is that using established code names helps with recognition by average people (i.e. not us "tankers"), then I beg to differ. Duke, Scarlett, Snake-Eyes - those are the Joes that any kid of the 80's will remember if they haven't been around Joes since their childhood.
I'm rambling now, but this really annoys me and has since the characters were unveiled. Surprisingly, I have less of a problem with Ripcord being of different ethnicity, but keeping the same civvie name. Now, the fact that Marlon Wayans is playing him...that's a different story. ;-)
