it's a subtle way of admitting that the collectors are what's propping up the line and it's also a failsafe in case the kiddies don't take a bite out of the turd sandwich of a movie.
Transformers is getting some pretty crappy reviews so far and if that doesn't have much hope, this Joe movie is going to suck so hard, the Hadron Collider won't be needed afterall.

don't get me wrong, I love them for doing the classic vehicles and I hope these find their way to the stores and not get cancelled or net only as that get's frustrating.

Didn't the first Transformers also get crappy reviews and it went on to make 700 million?
There's only a limited number of vehicle designs used/seen in the movie, and since Hasbro wants to keep the line going, they need to keep stuff coming out. Why go and create new molds when they have a ton of molds that will work just fine?

GREAT SCOTT!!! The G.I. Joe toy section is going to be RIDICULOUSLY chucked full of ROC merchandise!
I'm loving several vehicles particularly:
Rage w/Alley Viper; the black base plastic gives hope of a favorable color scheme that will allow me to add eight to my ROC army! (anyone want my loose Rage vehicles?)
Ferret w/Leatherneck; the green base plastic looks promising of matching the vintage color scheme!
Snowcat w/???; not sure who this my be since Frostbite has been seen with a prior vehicle but I REALLY like the mold of this mystery figure!
Thanks for the pics!

I'll get the snow cat for sure. I may get a rage tank it depends on the colors they use on it. I think these are 2010 items. I hope Hasbro keeps mixing in and or using classic vehicles in the movie line.However purple ferrets and wacked out colors on vehicles is a sure fire way to ruin a good thing.

Wow, that Snowcat looks really good. I was afraid the spring loaded gimmick would wind up ruining the vehicle.
Hope the correct that Leatherneck's arms before the final release.

Cool, i hope that Leatherneck is in his green camo style. That arctic joe with the Snowcat looks pretty good.
