:drool This is how GI Joe was meant to be! I'm shocked they killed off Major Bludd and Bazooka in the first episode though! Neither were really A listers, but still, I think most casual Joe fans at least knew them. I wonder if killing off main characters will be common on the show, or rare still.

And Cobra Commander's speach was awesome! About time he proved his point! :rock

A "spoiler" doesn't mean the ending is necessarily ruined, just a surprise or shocking twist. Lots of twists can happen before the finale.

Saying "so and so dies" is pretty much always a spoiler, no matter when it occurs.

Saying "so and so dies" is pretty much always a spoiler, no matter when it occurs.

So you are saying so and so dies on CSI is a spoiler when its the very first thing that happens?

Normally I'd agree with you, but if it happens in the first 5 minutes of anything, its not a spoiler. Heck, trailers are filled with more spoilers. I mean the Effiel Tower being eaten away in the craptacular film? I'd call that a spoiler.

But point taken. Any deaths from here on out will be treated as spoilers :D

Khev
04-18-2009, 06:36 PM
Normally I'd agree with you, but if it happens in the first 5 minutes of anything, its not a spoiler.

Any shocking turn of events given away is a spoiler. You even said yourself that you were "shocked" when it happened. And yes a lot of trailers do that, but only the ones that suck. ;)

We can go back and forth as to what constitutes a spoiler but at this point, what's the use? This is the spoiler thread so anything goes. :duff

Awesome cartoon. If I had my druthers none of the character designs would have been updated but its MUCH better than I thought it would be. Its *exactly* like how my friends and I used to play with our figures as kids. I literally would set up a dozen or more bad guys in a base or around the hovercraft and then would have Snake Eyes come in and wipe them all out, just like on the new show! I even got a "Silent Interlude" vibe from SE's arrival on the island. Rock on! :rock

I like Duke's voice, and the play between him and Scarlett over SE. It seems the show is recognizing that between the old toon and comic, Scarlett was an item with each of them.

I can't wait to see more.

If you don't like it don't comment on it. The only time anything should be said to Teemu about his views on Government conspiracy theories is when he's on one of his nonstop shoving it down your throat rants. Other that don't pay it no mind if your not interested. ^^^^, I don't like reading your crap more than half the time either but I'm not going to act like a little ____ and sick the teacher on ya??

You know after seeing the first few episodes I actually wouldn't mind anymore if SSC made Duke with some extra "Resolute" gear; namely the supply vest and kneepads. As long as I'd have the option to remove the extra accessories for a classic 1984 look I say bring on anything extra inspired by the new show.

This is only with regard to Duke though. I see Resolute is using the Devil's Due designs for Shipwreck and apparently Storm Shadow as well. NO MORE DEVIL'S DUE. :lecture

I've sort of figured that the cartoon was created, in part, to appease more serious fans who think the movie looks like poop. Also, to sell toys and make more money.

I'm going to say this again... the quintessential G.I. JOE RAH experience (imho) is now this (RESOLUTE) and the first 40-50 issues of the Marvel comics series (which IDW is now re-printing in TPB form, by the way)

Final battle is right! :google It was an awesome fight though!

If they do indeed make this into a series, I wonder if they will start before this "movie" takes place. Otherwise, they will be lacking some very important characters! First Bludd and Bazooka, now Storm Shadow and maybe Gung Ho and Roadblock! :horror

04-22-2009, 04:16 PM

So with the death of Stormshadow, I'm getting the feeling that this series might be a "one time thing". There's a begging, a middle and an end already set. I can see killing off Bazooka and Bludd for dramatic effect but SS was a major character to kill off this soon. Am I off on this???

My thoughts too. But a TV series set before this "movie" might work. That way we get Bludd, Bazooka, and SS back. Plus we might find out what Bludd did to get himself killed.

Then maybe a series or two after this "movie" where they can kill off even more guys? The fact they killed someone as big as SS off makes this prospect interesting. Nobody is safe. Killing off Destro or Baroness would make the other really pissed and that could lead to an interesting story, for example.

IrishJedi
04-22-2009, 11:10 PM
Personally, I don't really like how they handled the Storm Shadow character and that would have to be my one gripe with this. The showdown with SE was cool and all, but imho they made him too much of a one-dimensional villain with no depth or redeemable characteristics at all. The Tommy character from the original Hama comics was much more complex than this one and I prefer that incarnation myself.

Silent December
04-22-2009, 11:19 PM
That's why I was surprised that SE offed him so early. I figured they would explore their history a little further before their showdown.

Well, in this interpretation there apparently wasn't much else to explore. SS was just a bad guy, period, and so the complicated history isn't there. In fact, they even had him be the one who hired Zartan to take out his uncle. That's quite a departure from the previous canon.

Yeah, I was pretty disappointed about that. We lost the whole history of Stormshadow and Snake Eyes there. They could've explored the deeper aspect of the relationship between the two and have them forced to fight, SE to obviously defend the world and SS honorbound to Cobra and forced to battle SE. Instead they just went for the money shot, and while it worked, it just seemed rushed and shallow. :( Other than that though, the series rocks so far.

I'm pretty sure the show is 1 1/2 hours on CN, so that should give us at least one more episode right? Episode 10 didn't wrap anything up, especially with Duke's threat.

I wonder if they do kill Cobra Commander if we will finally see his face? Or maybe it would be a double?

Buttmunch
04-23-2009, 07:32 PM

I wasn't really impressed with this Zartan so his death didn't bother me. I knew he was the sniper before they revealed he was the shooter in the SS/SE flashback. They showed just enough to identify him in that episode.

I couldn't help but notice in the one episode where Duke and Scarlett are shooting at the Alley Vipers in the corrider that not only could they not hit a single Viper while firing their weapons on full auto but there weren't even any bullets ricocheting off the wall behind the Vipers. Were they shooting blanks? :lol

When Zartan was shot, I had the same feeling back when Boba Fett fell into the Sarlacc pit.

Zartan is the Boba Fett of GI Joe.

I had the same thought when Duke and Scarlett were in the middle of the Cobra Troopers and not one trooper was able to hit either Joe. Seems like Cobra Commander needs a stimulus package to hire troopers that can aim. :gun:duh

Oh, and did anyone notice the voice of Cobra Commander is the voice of Starscream in the live action Transformers movies? I think that is cool they connected these characters again through voice after all of these years.


Did not notice that. T me, however he does sound remarkably Like Revolver Ocelot. Not the guy who did his voice, but he does sound ALOt like him.

Great finale! Such a brief and yet "final" take on the franchise. So much so that I can't see them doing any more of these. I wish they didn't update every vehicle that appeared though. It took it a step away from feeling like "real" GI Joe with not one classic vehicle in its iconic form. Nevertheless a fun diversion to say the least!

So there could be more. I just wish it was 100% classic 80's ARAH as far as the designs of all characters and vehicles but with Resolute intensity and action.

Just finished the finale and it was sort of a letdown. I was expecting a spectacular battle to end all battles but it was just a small Joe strike team to obliterate Springfield. I was also expecting and hoping for a physical confrontation between Duke and Cobra Commander and it didn't happen. Overall though Wow! what an awesome ride this was! One thing I did notice though that has me hopeful that indeed more resolute is coming, the footage that we were shown at SDCC last year wasn't shown. Of course there's always the possibility that the scene we saw was cut or that it was just test footage but nonetheless I will remain hopeful.

Spoilers: Don't continue reading if you have not watched it yet!


























Firstly, they freaking killed everyone....The entire cast of characters went to the same Sharpshooting school for the blind...AGAIN, and what the hell is the deal with Hasbro making Scarlett HAVE TO FALL FOR THE BLONDE HAIRED, BLUE EYED LEADER - AGAIN!??
The comic book worked with the Snake-Eyes relationship...Why, change it...AGAIN!?

To recap:
Bludd - DEAD
Zartan - DEAD
Strom Shadow - DEAD (?!?!?!?!?)
Bazooka - DEAD
A few Unnamed Joes - DEAD (Finally!!!)
Duke - Recovered from bullet wound to the ribs pretty quickly.
Ripcord - Looked like they made him a black guy to me. (Wayans)
Dial Tone - A Young Girl (!?!??!?!)

....and Springfield was freakin' annihilated!?!?!? What is left but to start from scratch for CC.....Baroness and Destro were captured.

The show recognized the history between Scarlett and Snake-Eyes. And Duke did too, that's why he made her choose. Yeah she ended up with the "blonde" but I'm fine with that. Snake-Eyes has always been a tragic hero for me and the show reinforced that, especially since SE ended up saving Duke and Scarlett's lives at the end.

I see this show as more of a transitional story like the 1986 Transformers movie. Kill off half the old guard to make way for the new. Bring on Serpentor and Cobra-La Resolute! :rock :monkey3 ;)

Yeah, I can see that side of it, too. But, for me killing off Storm Shadow and Zartan just begs for trouble. They are too important, especially Storm Shadow.
I just think Larry wrote such incredible stories in the comics....The Cartoon seemed watered down and somewhat predictable.
They just seemed to have rushed it at the end....

At least Firefly is still alive. :)

I LOVED this. Leave it to Warren Ellis to deliver a Joe plot that truly shines. Like many have already said, I too was happy to finally see some death... and for that matter bullets and not laser fire (the blue and red flashes from the Joe and Cobra weapons was still a nice touch). Cobra Commander was outstanding, and the whole subplot with Storm Shadow and Snakeyes was perhaps my favorite part of the entire show.

Also, maybe I'm just late to discover this show, but... is this it? Have we just been left hanging as to what goes down between Joe and Cobra?

Zartan got peaced out so quick, you think it would have been a bit more dramatic. Why couldn't they have killed off one of the minor cobra villians instead? IMo, SS is dead too.

The one thing I did like, they made CC less of a "coward".

04-26-2009, 10:28 PM
I liked the tone and style of the show but I hated the way a lot of the characters were treated especially Stormshadow and Zartan. They gave you no reason to like either of them and made them both one diminsional in the comics you had sympathy for Stormshadow cause he was framed for his uncles death not the one who requested it. As for Zartan we could respect him in the orginal comics cause he was a straight up mercenary hired to get a job done not a psychopath that just wants to kill. I may have been abel to accept that if they had played it like his orginal file card where he was a Paranoid Schizophrenic and had Multiple Personality Disorder but they show no signs of that in what we got of Resolute.

As for the Joe's having Snake-Eyes comming to the Arashikage clan as an orphan sounds to much like the crap in the Live movie or the Sigma 6 cartoon. I always perfered him having the Commando background and then going to train as a Ninja cause of how close he already was to being one. The whole Scarlett & Duke thing didn't set well with me either I always liked the connection between her and Snake-Eyes in the Comics and the paring of her and Duke in the 80's cartoon and now in Resolute just doesn't seem right. We also get no context for the relationship with her and Snake-Eyes since the story of him being shot by Zartan undid the one of him loosing his voice to saving her when the Joe team was first formed. I also felt the Joes got off a little light in the casualty department compared to Cobra only loosing bazooka and whatever unnamed joe staff got caught up in the destruction of the Flagg.

Anyway in General I liked the tone and feel of most the show but it was lacking the feel of certain characters. While Cobra Commander was great and Destro finally sounds more like a scotsman while still matching his look alot of the others we either didn't get enough of or were way off like the ones mentioned in my rant above. Resolute does show a good G.I. JOE series can be done but needs to stick with the personalities and backgrounds we loved from the orginal Comics and File cards we read growing up.

That's my 2 cents on the show and sorry for being so long-winded.

well technically snake eyes did come to the Arashikage clan as an orphan... his parents had just died in a car accident...

but i agree that i didn't like the revision of the snake eyes origin story...

the way they did it was really cool (except for the fact that they stole some of it from Kill Bill) but i would have preferred the canonical comic book origin...

i also wish zartan was presented more like the comic book...

it seems though that resolute was intended as more of a grown up sequel to the cartoon series (with occassional nods of recognition to the comic)...

It leaned way more toward the cartoon characterizations and continuity than it did the comic...

like for instance the duke/scarlet relationship... Cobra commander's reference to his previous clueless behavior... the characterizations of zartan, destro and baroness... snake eyes/storm shadow origin... all of those bear very little resemblance to the comic book...

overall i thought it was pretty awesome... and would have been thrilled if this was the live action movie we got...

Watched all of it in one go, it was fun, good action and animation. Story and characters were almost severely lacking though, not very well written....Hopefully there will be a full show in the Resolute style though, that picks up from day 1 and pays tribute to the comic instead of the cartoon.

Didn't have a chance to catch this on saturday so I watched all the eps on youtube tonight. I must say for the most part I'm impressed. I really dig Cobra Commander in this one. I'm so used to seeing him portrayed as kinda a wuss and a coward in the original cartoon series I grew up watching so it's nice to see him grow a pair in this one and Snake Eyes was pure awesomeness. I love his commando/ninja hybrid look. I was a little dissapointed in Storm Shadow's portrayal though. Maybe it's just me but I felt he died way to easily. I was also dissapointed on Zartan's portrayal as well and I wish they would have given Firefly a larger role. But overall I though this was great and definantly different the the original cartoon I grew up watching but still very G.I. Joe-like as well.

I watched it yesterday as well... overall very well done. Although it still kind of shocked me each time you saw one of the Joes kill someone... guess I'm too used to the exploding ship and then seeing a parachute afterwards :lol

Couple things I didn't like though... the command center dialog and portion was kind of weak, too much like an episode of 24 or CSI. And, the scenes were 5 or 6 Cobra troopers were firing at Duke and Scarlett from less than 20 feet and not hitting anything was a bit silly. I know its a cartoon and all, but if everything else is gonna be gritty and realisitic those battles could have been as well.

But overall, it was a cool series and I'd definitely watch any follow up episodes or if they do a prequel series.

Posted at 3:31 PM May 08, 2009
Let me set the scene -- G.I. Joe: Resolute comes out a few weeks ago. As you might recall, it's awesome. In a post from April 24th, I say about Resolute scriptwriter Warren Ellis:
You know how we all complain that so-and-so raped our childhoods? Well, this is the exact opposite. I used this line in my Twitter, but I stand by it -- G.I. Joe: Resolute is like Warren Ellis made tender, passionate love to our childhoods, and he had an enormous ^^^^.
Now, today, someone sends the following pic to Warren Ellis of the shirt she wore to see Star Trek last night:

Topless Roboteers, I call on you -- find this woman and/or the shirt-maker, and have them get in touch with me at [email protected] so we can rectify this injustice immediately.

dialtone as a chick is a nod to devils due. It's been a while, but in the comics, Dial tone was one of the OLDEST joes. He was a Combat Vet who had seen ALOT of action even before his days as a Joe. when they re-foremd the team in devils due, He did not re-join. I cannot remember, however, if this is becuase he was retired, or dead. anyways, His code-name was Recycled. Also, if memory serves, she dies HARD in the comics.



I wish Destro sounded like a big Vader-lite brotha instead of Shawn Connery.
Destro's a Scot. He sounded FINE in the show, and even in the old show I never associted his voice with a black guy. He spoke Clearly, and with a deep, Full voice. No accent, however in the old cartoon. Remeinds me of someone who has traveled the world, and lost his accent becuase of it.
Besides that, I used to know a skinny white dude ( seriously, the guy was like 115 lbs) who had a voice like Barry white. No, you don't need to be "Big gay bubba" to have a deep baratone voice. Link related, and funny as hell.

Really? :confused: I could walk into any of the Walmarts Targets or my TRU and literally buy the entire series. I noticed that a few of the places seemed to be out of the basic Snake Eyes and the masked SS around the time the movie came out, but that's been about it. None of that crap is moving here.

I picked up the DVD yesterday during my crazy dvd/bd Joe haul. For bonus features, they included the original SDCC short of Snake Eyes single-handedly taking down a platoon of Cobra troopers, much to Duke and Roadblock's amazement. "We have a ninja??"

There's also a 20-minute interview with the producers and Hasbro employees, responding to letters from fans and explaining some of their more controversial decisions (Storm Shadow's honorless personality and Dialtone becoming female were two biggies). You can tell these guys really poured their hearts into this, and acknowledge the entire project was specifically a thank you note to older, die hard fans. They always meant this to be an adult endeavor, and wish they could have made a full series out of it.

One thing I noticed on this DVD that wasn't on my DVR'd version from Adult Swim broadcast: after the credits roll in the film, there's a quick pan of Storm Shadow's grave...and he definitely isn't in there anymore. ::cue ominous music:: :D

I'm really bummed they didn't put this out on blu ray. I watched the entire dvd, then put on my Rise of Cobra BD and saw a commercial for Resolute...in pure HD. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! :sigh: The dvd was downright grainy in certain scenes, particularly noticeable when Snake Eyes dives out of the plane. The dvd version had a lot of artifacting and gradient issues. The same shot in the ROC blu ray commercial was super crisp and beautiful. I'm a recent blu ray convert, so this sort of thing is very blatant to me. Your milage may vary, but there's no denying this could have been a sick BD.

The GI JOE license as with any other pop culture/toy license is subject to reimaging, retcons, revision, reinterpretation, alternate reality, reboot, etc.

With that said . . .

With most of us being "old school" fans . . . how much "retconning, reboot, reinterpretation, etc." can we take before we simply say . . . "BOLLOCKS!" (or BULL$%^&!).

I know that the powers that be have this mentality of appealing to the masses and not necessarily us "old school" fans. GI JOE RESOLUTE I agree was a nod to us old timers with embelishments, but still.

WHEN are we actually going to have a decent and worthwhile continuity where it actually is plausible or is plausibility a moot point?

OK . . . sorry for the rant/vent.

OH and for the record . . . I WILL NOT BE BUYING GI JOE ROC DVD. I refuse to pay for a DVD that is a rape of a cherished and fond childhood memory and toy. Then again . . . I did buy the DVD for TRANSFORMERS and TRANSFORMERS 2 . . . so I guess that make me a hypocrite?

While the cartoons were fun and made us play with our toys, nostalgia aside, there's a definite age cap there. Check out the Marvel Comics run (now being published in TPB by IDW). Great Joe stories and a plausible continuity started there, and IMHO, died there.

I agree with you to extent. The Marvel Comics run definitely had it's footing in the real world, but towards the end of the run . . . IMHO . . . it strayed.

The Devil's Due run of the series with it's faults . . . picked up where the Marvel Comics run ended, but it too strayed significant with way too many offshoots and completely lost it's focus.

The IDW run . . . I'm still evaluating it, but I am not completely impressed with it so far.

While the Marvel comics strayed a bit, they were still the best. Anything from Devil's Due is just a blatant bastardization of anything Marvel did. Zaran not really being Zartan?! Um... yeah.

Hey, in my book, it's merely a sheep in wolf's clothing. This figure should've been released on a Resolute card.

And it will not be a re-boot or a different take on Joe. Because, they will think the crap they allowed to be released is working.

Not how it works. It all depends on the ticket sales; toy sales are very neligible. A movie studio won't give a ???? that the toy company wants more movies when the first one underperformed; it's not worth the financial risk.

Not that it matters; the ROC toys have pretty much bombed anyways from what I heard.

Pre-ordered both sets from bbts last night. They look very neat, and it's nice that they gave us a different Duke and tweaked Snake-eyes sword to not have a hilt for accuracy. The only gripe I have is that Cobra Commander is the same one released on the Resolute card and re-released in the 5-pack (I have both cus I'm a dummy). Aside from that they all look much nicer than the Cobra Island packs released last year.

Regarding the RES packs, they do look nice but I'm with Nam here, phasing out of the 3 3/4 stuff. All I have left is my carded SE's, SS's, and a 25th original Firefly.

I'm really surprised that Hasbro changed some of the figures like the Duke and the Trooper. I would have figured with as much respect as they've shown for RES that it would have been the exact same figures we already got and then the ones that got cancelled and never released.

I really love Resolute and I'll definately pick these up and probably some extra Ally Vipers. I'm also pretty excited about the upcomming G.I. Joe: Renegades especially after reading this:

* The series will premiere in the fall on the Hub network, a partnership between Hasbro and the Discovery Channel

* Margaret Loesch is the Executive Producer

* 26 episodes will be a part of the first season, with a 2 part pilot and the 7th & 8th episodes focusing on Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow

* Additional mini-arcs will also occur during the season

* The new series has no continuity with prior classic series, Resolute or the film series

* The series is essentially "GI Joe Year One" and will focus on the characters as grunts and spooks during the beginning of GI Joe

* The team is on the run from Cobra

* We will learn where the characters got their nicknames

* Cobra Commander will wear his distinctive mask

* Destro's mask has a purpose

* The core team consists of characters with distinctive personalities

* The animation is traditional 2D with extensive focus on light and shadow. The backgrounds appear to have a watercolor look

* The stories are not written for kids, but the series will not use bullets or any traditional weaponry. Characters will have signature weapons

* Toy line will launch in Fall 2011

I completely agree - Resolute was great. I know Renegades is trying to emulate the style a bit, but I just can't get into it. It's sort of like the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon vs. the Clone Wars CG show. Close, but not as good as the "original" reimagining.

Rewatching it again. (hey, I am on leave and my wife is at work. kids might complain, but I dont have to listen to THEM.) Anyway, it is by far better than Renegades, which I watched 2 episodes of yesterday because they were on the DVR and I was bored. Only thing in Resolute that bugs me is Stalker's dreds. I understand the desire to make him different and "cooler" than before. I just don't dig it.

Meh, the dreds weren't that big an issue. Making Storm Shadow evil and putting him up against Snake Eyes was a huge headscratcher though.

But they had one hell of a fight. Probably the best fight between the two.

That's because Warren Ellis literally knew nothing about GI Joe when they hired him. My impression is he scanned over some of the more popular recent stuff, watched the movie, talked to a few creators, then pick & chose what he wanted to do and then wrote it around the new character designs.
