I like Dial-Tone being a girl. I mean, I probably would have kept her a boy if I was in charge of the project but it's not a bad thing that he's a girl. Resolute was supposed to be a new Joeverse and Dial-Tone is a perfect example.

i'm sure i'm in the minority here (and will probably get flamed to a crisp), but am i the only one who's found episodes 2 & 5 to be the weakest and frankly boring episodes of the lot so far? the other episodes have so much stuff going on, and then it's like "ninja spotlight time". yawn... (understand that this is coming from a grown man who owns a "what would a ninja do?" spin the ninja folder and occasionally wears a leaf village do-rag while doing yard work)
i mean everyone was drooling over snake eyes vs. the troopers but it was just standard snake eyes versus anybody fare... that's the problem with having a nigh-unbeatable ninja IMO. well, at least they didn't use the king arthur visor design-wise...

I kinda think they made Resolute Storm Shadow an honor less douche bag... a ninja punk with a sense of entitlement. Maybe Ellis is sneaking in a metaphor for today's kids... or I'm thinking too much... ha!!!
I prefer the comic book version of SS/SE relationship.
I hope we see SE pull off the Kill Bill seventh deadly punch ninja-woo-doo fist of death move before the series ends...

Overall, I'm liking it. I have very few gripes, but I don't expect it to be perfect anyhow.
I REALLY hope they don't go with the Duke/Scarlett thing. Seriously, if they go for a love triangle in this thing, or a series (COME ON HASBRO), it will be detrimental to all characters involved. Either have Scarlett with SE or with no one at all.
Don't like the way Destro looks in Part 4, but we haven't REALLY seen him in action, so that's premature.
There are a lot of characters played by the same voice actor. Not a HUGE deal, but I can notice it easily, and it's slightly distracting.
Storm Shadow needs to be somewhat sympathetic. Hopefully this will come to light as the series goes on, but come on, we all want a SE/SS Vs Firefly/Zartan fight. EPIC.
Again, these are mostly minor. Some MAJOR positives, things I like, are---
The action! Well done, both in choreography and it's weight. nothing feels arbitrary, there for "action's sake".
Good acting. CC is friggin scary!!!
Good look on the series. CC is serious, Duke is no-nonsense, Scarlett is in the INTELLIGENCE FIELD!!! Seriously, it always feels like she's just there, whereas here, she acts like her role.
Good use of side characters, cameos. So far, I've seen-
Rock n Roll
Seriously,that's more than they've made 25th figures of. Impressive.
It's a good story too. Cobra is a credible threat, and they mean business.
I am really enjoying it so far, and I hope they keep up the good work!

I did not notice the black ripcord... that bites... but other then that minor detail this is really what the movie should have looked like... the crappy x-men movie black bionic super suits just don't work at all for me.
I sure hope they decide on making a series or at least another movie or two.... too bad Major Bludd died in the first minute because it would be nice to have him if their is a sequel

I dunno, after watching Cobra Commander's speech...I don't think it's him. The self deprecation is either poor writing, or a deliberate tip off that there is someone else behind the mask.
Not only are you cripplingly ignorant, you whine about it as well.

I think the whole Snake-Eyes going off on his own takes away from the overall story. What do we need SE/SS for in this story? It's just there because the fans expect it to be.
