My dark and dreary prophecy of doom:
Some of the Resolute action figures will see release in ROC packaging.
Most, however, will be part of a DVD gift set that will probably be internet exclusive, not released to regular retail.
The DVD itself will probably see a retail release, but the action figures will be net exclusives. Meaning they'll sell us the bare-bones DVD first, then later release an online only exclusive set with the action figures and maybe some special features on the DVD
I think the movie and the related toys are going to underperform. GIJOE will not have much of a presence at retail in the next one to three years after the movie stuff has been clearanced away. I can even see it going back to a TRU exclusive or online-only product, if not shelved entirely.
Probably if they do continue the line they'll go back to the 25th style but it will be mostly, if not entirely, repaints.
Resolute will never see the light of day as a regular TV series. Hasbro will lose a lot of money with the ROC toys and the movie will turn GIJOE into poison for retailers. No one will want to touch the line very much after the epic failure of the movie. So even though Resolute had a very positive reaction, it'll get canned because the movie's bad buzz will poison everything associated with GIJOE.
And, in a few years, maybe the 30th anniversary of GIJOE or something, they might try to relaunch the franchise again. But they won't go back to the 25th stuff or Resolute because of "been there, done that."

Hasbro specifically said no Resolute Destro/Roadblock for this year, so I'd expect the others, like Snake Eyes to hit retail in some way, shape, or form later this year.

There really is no straight answer but as I've said several times before, I'm sure Res SE will hit retail eventually, I'm just not sure when or in what form e.g. single carded, 7-pack, exclusive etc. I hope he gets released by Fall but I personally don't expect to see him untill around xmas, and maybe not even untill sometime in 2010.
You will address me as COMMANDER!!!

They release the TF "Classics" line then they dissapear right as the movie toys appear. This is whats going on now with GI Joe as we kreep up to the ROC toy release. In a few weeks even those CC's that are collecting dust on the pegs will be MIA.
At least they are sprinkling some ARAH figures in with the movie stuff. Lets just hope they don't go cheap with materials on us like they did with the TF: Classics line to TF: Movie line, that was horrible as the movie toys were junk like bootleg quality you find in China Town.

Every time I think about this conversation I picture Conan doing his "in the year 2000...." skit.

Right now, Transformers is a much bigger brand than G.I.Joe.
TFs have generally been a steady seller since at least Best Wars.
G.I.Joe... Mixed fortunes over the last decade or so... at best.

I would say that you're looking at a "1-3" range of likelihood for Resolute Snake-Eyes appearing, though it may be later rather than sooner. It's a new mold, and that means Hasbro's going to find a way to release it to recoup their costs.
Same goes for pretty much everything we've seen with new molding.

Hasbro is releasing non-movie stuff with the RoC line. From what's been announced, it's probably 60 non-movie and 40 direct-movie for what's coming down the line.
I'd expect to see the Resolute figures at some point. I don't think we'll see Destro/Roadblock/Scarlett/Storm Shadow/Baroness in RoC packaging, but I think we will see 'em with the DVD release.
Which will be online only.
I mean the movie was a mature audience movie. You don't use a mature audience movie to sell toys and there's no way that will appear on toy shelves, so seeing the movie with toys on a shelf won't happen. Maybe see the movie with the DVDs, but it's an adult show, I don't really see it happening.
Especially with Hasbro and Discover TV signing the deal. You know there will be a kid-friendly Joe show coming soon.
