On the eve of the G.I. Joe: Resolute DVD, the internet geek world is abuzz…interestingly, everyone seems much more abuzz over the release of Resolute than they are The Rise of Cobra, which is a feeling I can certainly understand. While Resolute had it’s own faults that often go overlooked, from a pure “look” and “feel” perspective, it captured the spirit of G.I. Joe far more effectively than The Rise of Cobra did, in my opinion, even though I found both enormously entertaining.
Some of the more popular geek destinations online have been raving about Resolute all along, including i09.com, which has picked now to reveal a healthy collection of storyboard images pulled from G.I. Joe: Resolute. I’ve shown some other storyboards gleened from DeviantArt in the past, but these are all new to me, and all awesome.
Almost makes me sad looking at this stuff. I know I haven’t been shy in expressing my love for The Rise of Cobra, but while RoC was a fun action movie that had some neat G.I. Joe elements (at least in my opinion), Resolute was pure G.I. Joe, through and through. I think if Resolute was given the full blown series or motion picture treatment, it could be amazing, but shoe-horned into that funky format, I think it ended up suffering a bit for it. Still, I love it, and will always love the look and the designs of the characters and figures. Don’t forget to hit up the Resolute Animation SuperPage to get your fill of anything and everything G.I. Joe: Resolute.
