I can see some Hasbro rep opening a warehouse, blow off the dust on som of this stuff. Then making a phone call that sounds like this; Hey Mike, it's Greg. (Sorry if your name is Mike or Greg.) Yeah I found some old crapp in that ware house we have. Yeah, it's full of a bunch of crapp that was never sold. Yeah, We can slap some of the new Joe decals on it, and it's a done deal.
I am happy to see some old cool playsets, but not happy to see it pawned off as Rise of Cobra. What happens when all the cool throw back characters like Road Block and Trip Wire and Beach Head never make it into the movies to come? Careful, Hasbro a.k.a E.E has ways of controling your mind and wallet.
P.S----I want a Terror Dome Damit!

It's like the whole CG thing - I don't mind that the 25th versions aren't as bright as the original, as long as they're still red.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!
Also looking to sell/trade Joes... Need Lego Futuron Monorail, Land Adventure, etc... http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...-t-thread.html

I really like Roadblock. I'm glad to see Hasbro is showing him a little love. Don't care for the other figures. However that may change when I see them in the box.

I hope the Outpost Defender does not come with the same weapons from the 80's. They better update that crate with some ROC line weapons.
Also, why did they put the MMS's part that actually holds the three missiles on backwards? So it can rotate and point down?
Not bad overall though.

And Handytoy have these, (though LAW marked as presales). I ordered the Outpost defender (£30 in all incl P+P, but these won't get released in the UK, and the figures alone would be £16, so it's not bad at all for us)
There were two, now one. Others are there too, some cheaper

eh, i want that roadblock, and maybe one or two of the other figures, but i have no interest in the playsets. It's great for folks who just want rehashes of old stuff, but i feel like those playsets are so very dated and not at all in line with where G.I. Joe is going. I am hopefull that we will eventually see small playsets that are more modern and in line with the tech level of ROC/Resolute.
