How I learned to love the movie…

Love the movie?  What?  To anyone on G.I. Joe message boards over the past six months those words almost seem blasphemous, as the outlook for the upcoming motion picture is bleak, to say the least.

To many fans it’s because the arrival of the movie means the “death” of the Anniversary homages, and in many people’s minds those figures will never come back.  To others, they fear the worst from the film standpoint, and can only imagine it suffering an immense and utter failure in plot and execution, thus “ruining” their memories and spitting on their childhood.


I feel verklempt

Nothing makes me weepy like good toys…and good looking toys to start a hellish Monday, too.  A great way to brighten the day.

HissTank forum members art2614 and Shimaneboy have come through with open pictures of Resolute Duke, COBRA Commander, and the COBRA Troopers.  These figures are simply…  mind-blowing.  Fan-freaking tastic.

I haven’t been shy about my love for Resolute, and my strong desire to see Hasbro keep moving forward with the Joe concept instead of infinitely reliving the past.  Vintage homages have their time and place, for sure, and the G.I. Joe line wouldn’t be where it is right now without them.  But man, I would love to see Resolute take the reigns and go crazy on their own line at some point.  The design, sculpting and execution is about as close to flawless as I’ve seen in this scale.  Terrific!
