I bet you will see the same puch for the Resolute toys much in the way the TF Animated toys were pushed. After the movie.

Kinda thought this would happen. Glad to see the 7packs, but I guess that'll be it while the movie push happens. I wish they would give us a release for Resolute.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?

Hasbro is another company out there that's only in it for the money. They do what they believe will bring more green. The movie will bring in the most this year, so they revealed it early, giving fans a taste. When the figures do reach shelves, people will just buy without thinking of it. Good marketting. Fan's choice is and will always be number 2. They had to do something to keep us occuppied, so they make 2 completely awesome 7-packs, thinking that will shut us up. As for resolute, that part we'll just have to wait for.

im curious myself, i was really looking foward to more resolute figures so it is a disapointment that we have to wait, im really hoping they dont scrap this line because i think it could really take off. pushing this movie stuff is BS to me, its all terrible and doesnt have the slightest appeal to me. its looking like we arent getting anything untill next year if we get anything at all. what ever happened to hasblo running the 25th line and movie line at the same time? i thaught they were going to do this.

Yeah I think it's been killed (at least for now) for this disaster they call a movie line.

look for the silver lining--maybe resolute is being pushed back so it can be developed into a whole cartoon series, instead of just a series of webisodes.
a guy can dream, right?

If I were hasbro, it would make sense to capitalize on the marketing of the movie and to push and release as many movie related products as possible. Vintage collectors are a small fraction of the general population who might become fans through the movie. I see a similar marketing plan that was used to for the transformers movie and subseqent cartoon series.

Blackwater, there is one easy remedy to your mention of us Joe collectors unfortunately buying the new movie stuff due to lack of cool new 25th stuff...DON'T F'ING BUY IT PEOPLE! Hasbro is taking a dump in a box (IMO) and labeling it G.I. Joe...don't give in! I would rather have the line die and go away then to give in to Hasbro's lame a$$ Joe stuff they are about to drop on us just to hold out hope that they will continue with some cool stuff in the future. If there is anything anyone is considering out of this line...just wait, don't buy it, and it will be on clearance before you know it. At least that way Hasbro will realize WE control what sells and not them. The ONLY thing they are going to get out of me regarding this disappointing movie stuff is my $7 to go see the show. Regardless of how bad I think the movie will be, I WILL go see it. Whether it's for a laugh, or whether I'm surprised, I will go check out a live action big Hollywood budget Joe flick. That doesn't mean they are getting a penny more out of me for stuff I'm like "well, that Night Raven is okay...I guess". I just wish the rest of the people on Hiss would follow suit...but I can understand opinions are different, and I know there are some people out there that genuinely like some of the items coming out. I just don't understand how now that they've shown us what really matters to them, the money and NOT the fan (like that was ever vice versa), some people have been writing on the forums that they don't really like the new stuff but they'll probably pick it up. WHAT?????? WHY?????? Let it fail horribly! I've been of the mindset in the past that I wasn't going to get crazy by purchasing all the new Joe stuff and wait to see what Hasbro could come out with next. Well they've shown me what's next, and it's junk....that just means that I will go back and now think about purchasing a Vamp, or Hiss, etc,....that way I also feel I can show Hasbro what's worth it to the fan.
Regarding Resolute, now that I've ranted...haha, yeah, wtf? Where are the pics of the last stuff we can hold out for that just might be worth our hard earned dollar this year? What about the cartoon? Can anyone report, that's actually been at the show....2 things for me/us.
Any Resolute pics at all? Also, are there any more pics of the 7 pack stuff besides the one generic photo every site has up? Were there no pics of the figs with accessories, etc?
