    That suddenly makes me think that the live-action movie might NOT suck. Even all shadowy, those guys looked pretty damn cool.

    Oh yeah, and figures too :lol

    I hope it's not based on the movie and is based on the 25th/original cartoon. The preview makes it look that way. I'll go broke.

    What exactly are they going to be making? If it's just busts and statues I don't have any interest but if there is something like a 1:1 Cobra Commander helmet I may be in trouble.

    I really hope it's 1:6 scale versions of the characters. I've been hoping Sideshow would do them since I started buying their Star Wars figures. I too hope more for the comic/cartoon versions over the movie versions.


    Oh my poor abused wallet.

    That's some badass news, and I'm not even that big of a Joe fan.

    The preview video's pretty stupid though... XD

    I'd rather a first-look splash image of the merch than the seriously cheesy video, but it is what it is. Here's hopin the chick with the uzi means there's a Baroness in the works.

    i actually thought the video was kinda cool. it emphasized that sideshows product is a abt realism and they intend to take it to the next level, seeing that gi joe is actually native to the 12" platform.

    I hear ya, but realism in the Joe vs Cobra line so far hasn't been stellar. The Icons busts didn't even make it to the third and fourth ones with Lady Jaye and Zartan before it was cancelled from lack of interest. I'm eager for more Joe stuff too, but the translating to realism thing from a toon I'm not too confident in.

    I'm hopin I'm proved wrong since Sideshow is all about insane quality and detail and hope we don't require alot of shadow to enjoy the figs too. :p

    The only thing I'd be interested in is a 12" version of the original B.A.T. (my #1 favorite figure). But there's like a 0% chance they'll ever make one.

    $79.99 a pop. Yikes. More than I was expecting. Looks like I can't afford to be a completionist. But I can grab one or two at least.
