  1. This really does look like it's going to be a live action Sigma Six movie. And I'm not a Sigma Six hater throwing around the term as an insult. The suits DO look like all-black versions of Sigma Suits and from what I hear from rumors they are more or less going to serve the same purpose. Heavy Duty's inclusion is also suspect. I'm getting the feeling that Hasbro expected Sigma Six to be more of a success than it was and as such decided to incorporate that version of G.I. Joe into the movie.
  2. Is that Bazooka the same one from the 12" VvV line but with a vest and camo pants? And why can't they make a 12" Dusty that actually looks like him?

    Grunt's uniform was never gray. Just a darker shade of green than what is seen here. http://www.yojoe.com/action/82/grunt.shtml
  4. The Sigma Six like suits don't really bother me. I doubt they will be wearing them the entire film anyway. Though you gotta wonder why they went with this design when there seems to be a rather steady stream of fan boys still complaining about the costume designs from the X-Men flicks. I also fully understand that ya can't really have people waliing around wearing the exact things they did in the cartoons/comics/toys. But putting something like say a mask on Storm Shadow would not have made the moviel ook unrealistic. In fact the Matrix/G.I. Joe Reloaded look he has is more unrealistic to me. The guy's an assassin. He looks like he just stepped off the fashion run way. With that said I think the design is OK. I just want a ninja damn it! Then there is little stuff like hawk's uniform. Why is he wearing a beret? Anybody that knows anything about G.I. Joe is going to either A: Confuse him with Flint or B: Leave the theater bitching about how they should have had Flint in the film instead if they were going to have a guy going around in a beret. Hawk really does look like Guile from the Street Fighter film.
  5. The characters in Street Fighter looked little if anything like the characters in the video game.
  6. Wow. I'm not really happy with Storm Shadow at all. I realize they wouldn't have him wearing the mask 24/7 but I have a feeling we won't see him in one at all. And the Baroness with no glasses? I've been positive about this film until now. Why is it G4 can do a 5 minute G.I. Joe parody and have it look better?
  7. I usually don't like these Marvel Legends customs but DAMN that is excellent.
  8. *looks at picture* *looks at comment* Day glow? I see people have resorted to bitching about things that don't exist.
  9. Looks good but it is starting to look a lot like X-Men. I assume Duke and co will be in similar uniforms?
  10. Nice. How did her pants get ripped like that and yet her panties did not?
  11. Bazooka looks a little funky. The #14 on his jersey looks way too stretched. His head/helmet looks sort of weird too. I'm hoping there will be a brown hair variant of that Hawk.
  12. The Rock as Shipwreck? I just don't see it.
  13. Yeah they used to just be blank so this at least puts something to look at on the card.
  14. That's the Valor vs Venom Scarlett and a Night Force Beach Head with the comic that came with the Cover Girl/Spirit/Hannibal comic book 3-pack.
  15. Actually it says "Cartoon".
  16. Looks like Spirit is breaking out the peace pipe. I actually like the head.
  17. I plan on buying the movie toys unless they completely suck so it won't be that big of a deal to me. It would be nice if there was just one G.I. JOE line though with some of the figures being based on the movie incarnations (kind of like how movie versions of characters showed up in the Marvel Legends line along side the normal versions).
  18. What is the Cobra Trooper situation in this movie? I have heard them referred to as Neo-Vipers. Are they actually called that in the script or is that just what the Vipers/Troopers look like?
  19. I'll be getting this too. I'm happy that they didn't come with a Hulk figure and thus will only have to pay for the figures I want (these).
  20. I don't totally dislike what I am hearing. Cobra Commander's original filecard lists his secondary military specialty as "experimental weaponry" and he was a revealed to be a "brilliant young scientist" in the animated movie. So him being a former soldier/scientist is actually cool with me. I am concerned however with Destro having a possible hand in his "creation". In that old script that has been floating around the Internet for years it had Destro creating Cobra Commander ala Bison creating Blanka in the Street Fighter flick. I hope that idea was dropped. Cobra Commander and Destro has a classic rivalry in the cartoons and comics and to have Destro as Cobra Commander's creation takes away from that.
  21. Well this sounds like they are changing a lot of stuff around and quite frankly I don't feel these changes were needed. So the Baroness is an American (I assume) who marries a Frenchman? Come on! How could they make a G.I. Joe movie and not have her being from Eastern Europe? Oh, and she is Cobra Commander's sister? Why can't she just be one of his followers? Why change things around this much? I'm also not feeling this Rex/Doctor BS about Cobra Commander. And is it really necessary that Destro's face actually be turned to metal like that? Also, it sounds if they are borrowing some of the story lines from the Devil's Due books (Hawk crippled, nanotechs, etc.). I don't know. I feel as if the person who wrote this script only knew the cartoon and after deciding to ignore the animated movie just up and started making up origins from thin air for Cobra Commander, Destro, and the Baroness as if they didn't already have one in the comics.
  22. I don't have any to post here but http://www.joedios.com/ has a bunch of good ones.
