So last week we got a little peek at the Resolute “Pilot Destro” that’s coming out in upcoming Comic Packs. Well, today, once again, HissTank has another new Resolute figure. Granted it’s a tiny glimpse, but for the first time we see Resolute COBRA Commander here.
Of course I have my thoughts on this.
Honestly, could Hasbro be handling this any better? I know, I know…I’m a shameless Hasbro fanboy. Everything they touch is gold, yadda yadda. In spite of the fact that this is glaringly untrue, I do think that they are handling this whole Resolute thing exceptionally well:
- We’re getting the great core characters we love in designs that are VERY reminiscent of their vintage looks, only with slight updating.
- We’re getting an adult, mature storyline with action and military tactics.
- We’re getting the figures for this new cartoon mixed in with the 25th Anniversary homages that people want to continue
- Comic Packs are being pulled from the Resolute “universe” yet maintain many of the design elements of the original characters
- Great writing, great directing, lots of action
I mean, honestly…am I the only one who feels like this is the G.I. Joe I’ve been waiting for since the 90’s? This is exactly what I’ve wanted to see. It can’t get any better than this. I really hope the rest of the figures impress as much as COBRA Commander has, and I hope the whole series impresses as much as the 5 minute clip did, but if both of those are true, then this is perfection in G.I. Joe to me.
Is it too late to stop this pesky Movie thing and just continue with Resolute?
