Killing Duke might not have redeemed the mess the where making of Sunbow G.I.Joe, but it certainly wouldn't have taken away anything. Put him in the ground and bump Flint up in his place - nothing against Michael Bell, It would be just the changing of the guards like we seen in the 86TF movie.

I loved how a lot of the older Transformers got killed or...transmogrified...in the 1986 film. I actually thought it took balls of steel for them to kill Optimus Prime and let Megatron continue as Galvatron.
I was disappointed when Prime was resurrected, not because I don't like the character, but I thought it was very mature to make the Autobots have to carry on without their leader.
I didn't like the TV season following the movie nearly as much. Not because of the newer characters, but because of the shitty animation (compared to the previous seasons) and making the Decepticons into burned-out rebels and Galvatron's insanity (though I to this day I am still amused by "Webworld"). You never want to make the bad guys the underdogs.

I'm not a huge fan of the cartoon. I'll be honest about that. It was good fun and all, but it just didn't do it for me.
However, something I've seen a lot of lately is people stating that the show hasn't aged well because the animation isn't as good as what kids are used to these days.
To that, I ask: "Have you ever watched Teen Titans? Or Yu-Gi-Oh? How about Johnny Test?"
Say what you will about the GI Joe cartoon, but its animation is generally very good. Better, in fact, than most of the cartoons the kids are glued to in recent years.

Was anyone else reminded of the Sunbow cartoon when they watched Rise of Cobra?

Some of the second season episodes are out there, and that's part of what makes them awesome.
What about the one when Mindbender promotes Dial Tone, Lifeline, and Shipwreck while Hawk is away?
I also see no reason to kill Duke.
Killing Prime was stupid, so stupid infact they had to ret-con it.

While I like the touch of danger and realism in the comics and Resolute, I still like the old Sunbow series.
I just wish they did more with Snake Eyes.
