Suits are fine with me, seems that the Joe team will be a very small elite group who will use technology to even out against Cobra. Anyways the Joes were originally supposed to be a shield type team. I personally hate the super ninja abilities over a suit that might be real one day.

I think the accelerator suits would work fine in cartoon land, but not so much in a live action movie. Why? I don't know. The Eiffel Tower being eaten by nanites or whatever - OK. Ninjas wearing rubber armor and cargo pants - fine. And if there was a jet pack JUMP, I'd be all over that. But, accelerator suits? Sorry. I just can't go there.
Maybe there is some sort of "Uncanny Valley" at work here and the closer Hasbro/Paramount toes the "foreseeable future (my English teacher always hated this term)", the more fans are turned off.
Or maybe they are just not cool. Take your pick.

i just dont like the suits, not really sure why i feel like they are a bit too iron man for me, like its just kind of lame, gijoe never had accelerator suits, they were just awesome on there own and had tons of vehicles, thats the difference if i had to make a point. the movie should of featured lots of vehicles in battle that are based off the cartoon. would of been alot cooler to me.

I am not a fan of the suits but I may pick up one or two of them, if they have the characters I like in them.

I liked the suits. A lot.
Think about it:
In ROC, we have vehicles that can fly and shoot bad hurty pulse things, weapons that can shoot Star Wars Force Push powers through a rifle, evil people who can create nanomites for all kinds of stuff including mind control, eat metal, and make dudes heads metal, silent ninjas, giant underground bases, and so on and so forth, but a suit that makes you run fast and shoot missles and bullets? OH GOD NO! WE CAN'T HAVE THAT!! MY CHILDHOOD IS BEING RAPED!! AHHH!!
I love the look of them and they also make great for customizing (from what I've seen on the customs forum). Plus, think about this, what did Cobra do with Duke's suit? B.A.T.S anyone?
Anyway, the suits were fine with me, and the way I look at it, they are just suits to aid the Joes in their fight against Cobra.

While I'm not the biggest fan of the suits, as long as they don't get overused I have no real issue with them other then I think they LOOK stupid. However, I'll take the suits over everyone turning into a ninja anyday.

It's a great list, and I dont mind the Delta 6 suits in the Joeverse, but I didn't like how they have been used yet. Giving them to Joes sucked, because it took away from the uniqueness of the character wearing it. Instead of seeing Duke in any real combat situations, we get him running all over Paris like a Superhero.
I do feel like they would be cool in the hands of Cobra. Since Duke gave them one in the first film, maybe we get "Battle-Armor Cobra Commander" in the second movie! Plus I did a custom just like that, and I wanna see in a movie! Also I want Duke to come back as a villain, like maybe some nanomites DID get in him! Another thread, another day!
