    So, it's going to be some kind of G.I. Joe/Action Man crossover? o_O

    Wow, it now sounds like TFs are closer to their source material than GI Joe will be, it's a shame really, I mean, I understand why they changed transformers to make them more alien, more complex, more articulated, but there was NO reason to change GI Joe, NONE.

    You know what's funny (and shouldn't be at all) is the fact that I was watching the news one day and they were showing clips of these terrorists propaganda videos, the men appearing in the videos were wearing military uniforms and had hoods on their heads with eye holes cut in them, the very first thing I thought of was Cobra Commander!

    Led by a guy in a blue mask and his buddy with the iron mask?

    I do believe that may be the "humorous" aspect of it.

    Have you seen video of terrorists generally they keep there faces covered. Also you could go the transformers route and change some things without totally disregarding the point of the franchise.

    The movie should have Croc-Master and Big Boa in charge. But at the end you find out Crystal Ball is running it all. I'd pay to see that.

    Yes...on the videos. When they're just hanging out in the caves, I bet they kick back, relax, and take off their steel faceplates.

    Or they could do the zombie route with those scary looking toxo vipers that had been turned into toxo-zombies. Scary stuff.

    I think your forgetting that this isn't "real" it's a movie. The commander took his hood off to eat in the cartoon it just was only shown from the back leaving what he looked like to the imagination. In the comics both had there faces shown multiple times just with a fake mustache etc.
