And oh yea, I remember the cartoon being ALL about kids playing with the toys...little jimmy and the sky striker and his misadventures with the blender and mommys pot stash! Moe with the gimpy leg, having his Rattler adventure on newly paved driveways and that wonderful ending in the emergency room...how could I have forgotten these timeless classics.
Not sure it was you who said it before, but someone already made that sort of comment in something else...it wasn't that clever then either.
But I'll agree in one thing, it's not a big deal really, we'll just have to wait another 15 or 20 so odd years and see if they'll get it all right that time around.
Whatever plot they come up with to follow the last one certainly wouldn't save it, nudity all around...but hey aren't the transformers already technically nude?

Depends on ages, mine may be younger than yours, however, it was totally uncalled for. It gives me optomism that ROC may be better than TF ROTF.

Again, Xhairs, it's coming down to opinions on what makes a "real" fan and what makes "crappy" Joe product.
You think a real fan is someone that would rather have the brand end on a high note (opinion btw, what's a high note for you isn't necessarily the same for others) then come out with something "crappy" (again, another opinion, what's crappy for one isn't crappy for others).
I think a real fan is someone that wants the brand to survive and stay on the shelves and be there for everyone to enjoy in one form or the other, even if the current version isn't something they particularly personally like (which is of course, an opinion again, as likes/dislikes are complete and total opinions).
So really, which is a real fan of the franchise? One would rather have their version then no version, even if it meant the franchise disappeared. That's a real fan???
If I don't like it, I'm not going to support it with my money, but I'm glad that Hasbro is trying to keep the Joe name alive. I want my grandsons and great grandsons to walk into a toystore (or hover, or teleport, or virtual reality walk or whatever they end up doing in the future) and be able to pick up a G.I. Joe product.
I want them to come home and go "Grampy, look what I got" and be able to talk to them about my Joe and the origins of the franchise and what's different from then to now.

I did more than "10 seconds" of research. I always get at least three sources of info, to make sure they all agree with each other. The money TF2 has made is not up for debate. It's fact, pure and simple.
YOU do the research. It's readily available for all to see.
All your drug talk was too much to get in to...I have no interest in it anyway. I was only pointing out info on the TF movie. Check it out. Good luck.

I wouldn't call The Incredible Hulk movie a failure. I liked it a lot! Now the Ang Lee Hulk movie, well, that was what I call fail.
I liked the TMNT CGI film that came out a few years ago and thought it was actually pretty good. You know, until FCBD this year I had never read any of the original TMNT comics so I grew up with the toon and loved it. Now that I'm older though and have been exposed to the comic I would love to see a movie that reflected the comics and stayed away from the kid friendly toon since I think it's a LOT better!
As for Transformers, I really liked both movies. Optimus was the man in my mind, whether it was comics, toons, movies, whatever and that fact became even more cemented after watching him battle to the "death" with six decepticons at one time. That was SOOO cool. But I grew up on G1 transformers and that will always be the stuff to me, although I really got into TFAnimated. I think a big part of the reason why is because it was something my daughter and I watched from the beginning and it was special because it was like sharing one of my most beloved properties from my childhood to the next generation. It had a lot of G1 references/nods and that made it that much cooler. Of course I did pick up the first season of the G1 series recently so I'll definitely be sharing that with my daughter too.
Bottom line is, we all like different stuff and just because you personally think something is a failure, and even if you can argue your point intelligently and passionately, does not mean that everyone else thinks it is a failure.
