Wow you kids sure like to cry....I like the fact that something new is being tried here. The desert theme reminds me of the current wave in real life US Battle uniforms(cept on a fictional terrorist enemy) Good Job Hasbro...give us more variety. (cry cry why can't everything always be the same?)
He's got a valid point.
Don't encourage him!
It's one thing for someone to share an equal or even opposing opinion to another, but to start it off with a smartass cut against ALL that may have the opposing opinion (from what YOU'RE about to share with everyone).....is pretty lame and obnoxious. Just give us the rundown on YOUR (individual or personal) opinion and spare us the cute little barbs of wit intended only to MOCK what others are saying that you may not like or agree with.
We do, as a community and as individuals, tend to cry about things. I mean really... it's not like Hasbro said if we don't buy this they're going to cancel the line. Don't like it? Don't buy it.
I guess I'm not seeing where such a panic attack was posted, that would identify the comments, so far in this thread, as being childish "crying" and (GOD...I hate to even use the lame ass quote) "OH NOES, DETH OF THE LINE!" type of stuff? Although, I DO think loading up the shelves and pegs with product that nobody is all that interested in or really WANTS, leaving massive amounts of pegwarmers hanging around, can influence what the retailers might start thinking of said product, and while Hasbro would NEVER threaten to cancel anything on their OWN (for such reasons as fans keep posting on message boards that they don't like it) I do think they'd be forced to discontinue something if retailers stop ordering it, so with that, I do see some logic in any stated concern over such items (that are disppointing to some of us) maybe slowing down the momentum of the line which seems to be of the upmost importance with G.I.Joe, seeing how many tiomes it's sputtered and come to a halt, cancelled, put on hiatus and brought back form the dead and regurgetated once more.
And yes, I realize the stupidity of complaining about complainers on a message forum meant to exchange opions both good and bad. I just happen to think the issues raised are silly.
Yeah, but even THAT is a complaint about the complaints! "They're SILLY!"
I don't remember this type of outrage during the ridiculous black Crimson Guard set. If you're upset that they didn't make a new Sand Viper, Scorpion, or any other desert themed persona, you really overestimated Hasbro's intent, and probably haven't been in the fandom for long.
Well, we do have a LOT of newbies and new YOUNG fans of G.I.Joe, so while that (overall) is a GOOD thing, you have to pretty much let them catch up (so-to-speak) with the old-timers.
