This is pretty much just Sigma Six the movie............I would take VvV over the crap that this looks to be anyday. I did not buy one Sigma Six figure after Duke cause I was gonna at least taste the Kool-Aid before I dissed it and I didn't like it. Also I 'm not seeing anything in these pictures in the 25th line.......which if I'm not mistaken has brought GI Joe back to the forefront of collecting and has pretty much kicked all of our geek asses for the past 10 months.
Also the 25th line is based on those "Salvation Army" clothes and in case you haven't been collecting in a while it seems to be doing pretty well. A lot better than Sigma Six ever did.........and Sigma Six even had a cartoon.
I'm not saying this movie will ruin my childhood but I think I can speak for a lot of people that we see the POTENTIAL for a great franchise......and it looks to be going down the toliet........Did MOTU ever really recover from the awful movie in 1987....it took 15 years but then it was only around for a couple years.
Sin City, Spider-man, 300, Batman films, Iron Man...........I remember seeing first pics from all these movies and they looked GREAT. They turned out to be great movies and mostly faithful translations (with some liberties) At least the Transformers were robots.....and Optimus was red and blue and Bumblebee was yellow. I mean they could have been all black.........wouldn't that have been great????
We have also seen where comic properties go wrong with the wrong look and wrong vision......."Elektra" "Daredevil" "Street Fighter" anyone. I knew from the first pics they were gonna be crap and they were crap.
I mean they look like Flea Market knock-off versions of some army guys....and ninjas...........Snake-Eyes is the only one that got me excited.......the rest look awful.
We've seen that movies can be faithful and successful......"Iron man" is a perfect example........it just takes some imagination.
Don't even get me started on Destro.........sheesh.
This is a pointless discussion-----
AGREE TO DISAGREE
THE GIJOE FRANCHISE ISNT GOING ANYWHRE BUT UP
AND ALL IM TRYING TO GET ACROSS IS ---------THERE NEVER GOING TO BE A PERFECT MOVIE ------LIVE ACTION OR OTHERWISE
IVE BEEN COLLECTING JOES SINCE DAY ONE ------
AND I COULDVE WIPED MY BIG BOOTY WITH THE "GIJOE MOVIE"--I HATED IT WHEN I WAS A KID AND I STILL CANNOT STOMACH THE WHOLE THING
THE NEW STAR WARS EPISODES WERE CONSIDERED BLASPHEMY TO SOME STAR WARS FANS---------WHAT EVER
MEGATRON LOOKED LIKE AN IDIOT, BATMANS NIPPLES, GREEN GOBLINS STUPID SMILIN HELMET,
EVEN IF THIS MOVIE COMES OUT AND ENDS UP BEING A DECENT FLIK -----------THERES STILL GPOING TO BE THE GUY THAT SAYS
SCARLETS PONY TAIL WAS TOO LONG, DUKES TEETH WERE TOO WHITE ----COBRA COMMDERS VOICE WAS OFF, STORM SHADOW WOULD NEVER USE NUNCHUKS, GI JOE WOULD NEVER WEAR ALL BLACK
IF SOME KID SEE GIJOE ON THE BIG SCREEN WEARING THE UNIFORMS I LOVE AND THAT WE ALL GREW UP HE'S NOT GOING TO KNOW ROADBLOCK(OR HEAVY DUTY) FROM THE BLACK GUY FROM Y.M.C.A
PUT JOES IN BLACK AND COBRAS IN BLUE(I HOPE)----------THEY WILL KNOW THE DIFFRENCE
LETS FACE IT ------------WE'RE OLD-----------THIS ISNT"SPIDERMAN" OR BATMAN ----WHO HAVE BEEN AROUND AND HAD THE SAME LOOK FOR THE MOST PART SINCE DAY ONE BECAUSE ITS TOO EASY TO TRANSLATE AND UPDATE
AND THIS MY FRIEND IM SORRY TO SAY IS NO LONGER "OUR" GIJOE
