If Hasbro is truly working on a real GIJoe film.......3 things:

1: Hell Yeah! Another childhood dream come true.
2: It better be done right and have some of the "wacky" looking but still believable vehicles that the toys had
3: I wanna know how to get involved! I wanna be in the dang movie!

All I care is that they cast a HOT eastern-European for the Baroness. And they had BETTER cast an awesome Cobra Commander, too!

That said, to quote Megatron in series I: "We [Hasbro] will milk this planet [TF merchandising] dry!!!"

If they DO make a GI Joe movie, I hope they don't let that guy from the Transformers movie anywhere near it. You know, that Bonaventura guy? I think it was him. He wants the GI Joe movie to be a buddy film about Duke and Action Man, and Cobra doesn't exist.

Please, DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN.

The whole military soldier aspect of the movie felt like it was as a test run for fleshing out a "realistic" G.I. Joe movie, didn't it?

(...maybe it was just me...)
:-P
