    Re: G.I. Joe Movie cast photos!!!!!!

    I'm not familiar with the comics or honestly with much of the characters, but I remember playing with my brother's GI Joe dolls back when they had the furry crew cuts and darn it, GI Joe's don't look like these do in the movie. These costumes are so uninspired and look like every other film of recent- Doom, Underworld, Matrix, Blade, Batman, X-Men. Can't someone come up with something original? Isn't it possible to stay true to what they are meant to look like? There are a couple of girl costumes in this movie which it would have been cool to do but they are such generic costumes that what is point in doing something if everyone is going to be like "what movie are you from?"

    Well, Baroness is pretty true to how she looked in the cartoon, comics and figure. The only thing really missing are the circular glasses and a giant "cobra" symbol on her chest. (it's like that on the figure)

    Yeah, I was telling Brak's that she looked an awful lot like Trinity from The Matrix and then he told me the same as you said and showed me a picture of her.

    Did anybody notice that the cammo fabric on General Hawk and Cover Girl actually says "GIJOE" on it...

    Dolls? aw man. I thought I was playing with action figures. These pics worry me though. I think this might be another horrible movie at the box office.

    Wow, Andy... I would have thought you would be all over this! While you may not quite have the moves Ray Parks probably will, I really think you pull off the spirit of Snake Eyes MUCH more convincingly than what I am seeing in these pics. You look like a ninja... The Park Snake Eyes looks like some sort of Bane-esque charcter... Like a black rubber Arnold or something... I know what they were trying to do but they just didn't pull it off.

    Since I am a wee bit into G.I. JOE myself......



    ....I am glad they used Ray Park as the modernized Snake-Eyes. He's a cool guy and he's a good choice for that character. The rest of the modernized Batman armored JOEs do nothing for me.

    Mr Fett, now that's what I'm talking about! That is Snake Eyes like I remember him! Well done!

    These characters were such a big part of my childhood. Why can't they get people to produce these movies who have the same kind of love for the characters as the fans who grew up with them? There's got to be someone out there who can design individualized uniforms for the characters which are "modernized", but still true to the flavor of the character they represent.

    On a side note, I've gotten my son a bunch of the 25th anniversary figures which recently came out, so he's into them now.

    Exactly!!! Like I said Andy, you really fit the bill!


    Apparently the Storm Shadow look was pulled from "Cobra Reborn"

    Re: G.I. Joe Movie cast photos!!!!!!

    Yeah, mine is heavily based on the 1985 (second figure) version. Not exact, since I threw in a little of the more modern version into it, but still kept with the mainly old school theme. One difference I did with my visor is make it more angular instead of rounded, because that's how it was sometimes drawn in the old comics (and every other Snake-Eyes I'd seen does the rounded version so I was trying to be a little different).

    I actually made my first Snake-Eyes costume before I even got into the Star Wars costuming. I grew up with the 80s version of the G.I. JOEs and Snake-Eyes was and is so dear to my childhood memories. I praise Ray Park's gymnastic martial arts abilities and that he's such a nice guy in real life, so kudos to choosing him. But, like Braks said, the suit they made for him was too overly scupted. It looks like they were trying to match the Image comics look for him (what I call the 'new Snake-Eyes'). That's pretty typical nowadays in Hollywood to severly modernize every comic type character we've seen thus far.

    Thanks for the compliments Braks and hansoloway.




    ......and of course have you seen my prom picture?

    Ok, with that picture of what Scarlett is supposed to look like, compare that to what she looks like in film...are you saying the purple spandex is more realistic? I'm sorry, while I love the old school Joe look, I have to give the benefit to the 09 Movie Scarlett.

    No, I'm not saying they have to go exactly like the old school Scarlett, just something in between her and the movie costumed Batman Scarlett. For an example, during the Superman Returns and Spider-Man movies, the actors were wearing muscle suits under their spandex costumes and it looked good and still natural. Having sculpted on muscles for the movie Snake-Eyes suit doesn't look natural.

    Same for the other JOEs. Too much Batman looking. Now Batman Begins was an amazing movie and his costume was cool (and they tried to give an explanation what the suit actually was), and they still stuck to the basic Batman history. This movie will almost certainly completely change the G.I. JOE characters history completly. Blah.

    Not happy with the generic look either. If they wanted to have everyone wearing those kinds of outfits, couldn't they have just gone with the "old reliable"

    I have held out ZERO faith that this movie would be any good from the moment I heard they were going to make it. Now that pics are leaking out it's confirmed for me. This is going to be another thing from our childhood that gets processed and spit out like some rehashed piece of re-engineered garbage! Snake Eyes is the ONLY thing that looks cool and even then the sculpted mouth is absurd. Baroness looks hot but then WHY not give her the glasses we all expect her to have? WHY?

    LAME.
    yeah this pretty much sums up my opinion of how this is going to turn out

    Here's something I read on the MWG board and don't know, if it is reliable. If it is, then the costumes are the least of our problems.

    Well now that they made Cover Girl a blonde instead of a redhead...I guess I'll just stick to my old school costume. I do so love the bomber jacket anyway.

    Andy's Snakeyes is and always will be my favorite costume. Especially his version with the tube sock.... lol Got to love DragonCon.

    That's not the script they are using. Latinoreview posted a recent review of the newest script and fell in love with it. BUT Paramount made them remove the review.

    I don't know. I'm kinda going back and forth on this now.

    1) Love Ray as Snake Eyes! No doubt about that.

    BUT...
    2) not too keen on the formed lower face portion of the face mask of Snake Eyes. BUT maybe they put the formed mouth part in so Ray could BREATHE in the costume. So, I'm not going to complain too much. That's really the only problem I had with him.
    3) the others look too much like Snake Eyes. ALL BLACK!! NOBODY ELSE should be wearing black except SNAKE EYES!!!
    4) Storm Shadow looks like he came straight out of The Matrix!!!
    5) the GOOD guys should have the cool costumes! NOT the BAD GUYS!!

    And I've heard that tis film is going to be a bit on the "campy" side. Oh well. I guess if they are going to try to gain a whole new audience and fan base for GI Joe, then they might as well try to appeal to the young ones with tons of loud explosions and fighting. As well as the campy humor.

    If I remember correctly though, there was at least one episode in the original cartoon early on where Cover Girl did have blonde hair. Check it out.
