Happy New Year to one and all!!!

Here's hoping there is some better news this year regarding GI Joe.  Though the Snake Eyes movie seems to be moving ahead, so there is that to watch for sooner or later.

Here is the latest rumours:

https://www.cbr.com/gi-joe-snake-eyes-movie-details-report/

Interesting idea for an origin.  Although I agree with the posts as to why his original origin isn't being used?  It is a great origin that translates well to any medium, and I think the producers are forgetting it is supposed to be part of a : military" universe, not just a martial arts film.

So in what I consider unsurprising news....

Lorenzo DiBonaventura, one of the producers of GI:Joe: Snake Eyes has recently said that Ray Park is most likely out as Snake Eyes.  The movie is going to be an origin story, and we will apparently see Snake Eyes face, but he will be younger than Ray Park.  So he is most likely out due to age. 

Nothing is set in stone yet, but it seems likely this is going to be a reality.  I wonder if they will get someone "famous" or go with a new face? 

I also wonder in this modern age of cultural sensitivity if a white male, hero, lead character for an Asian clan will be problematic?

So finally some news to report in the land of Joe.  The next movie, apparently titled "GI Joe: Snake Eyes" is in production.  They officially moved from pre-production to production.  Not actual filming yet, but a concrete step to get it going.

Anyone else happy to see the news?  The question now is how will they treat the character?  Will it be a reboot?  Questions, questions, questions....

I saw the same post on Face Book and followed Pete. Been a long time. Surprised I remembered my old password.

I can't remember the last time I logged in here. Same with Joe Customs and Hiss Tank.

Most Joe talk happens on social media for me knowadays. Maybe it's just me but GI Joe isn't as high on my priorities as it used to be.

Still, I made some good friends and had fun making toys back in the day.

So yeah, hi!

Hey Morgardee!!  Long time.  Yeah it is definitely lonely here now.  Good to see an old name pop up after so long.

Hey.  It is ghost town here now.  You'll be lucky to see one-two posts a month.  Less even is more likely.  Hopefully with the news of a new Snake Eyes movie it might pick up a little.

I figured I would give it a week to see the responses, and I'm currently in Vancouver for another week, and I am saddened but not surprised.

3!!  3 of us, all longtime members, are all that seems to be left keeping the lights on.  I'm sure there are a bunch of lurker members still hanging out, but it really is crazy to see how far things have gone down the rabbit hole.

Oh well, until something happens I will keep checking in from time to time.

General Joe Talk / State of GI Joe and Joecanuck.

So I figured I would start a thread just to see how things are going.

Obviously GI Joe is at one of it's lowest points in the history of the brand.  No toyline, no show, and talk of another movie possibly being worked on but no signs of anything happening.  Hell not even a SDCC exclusive toy like the last few years.  Thankfully the comics are still going, but that seems to be all there is right now.

As for Joecanuck, well I think we (those of us still checking in) can safely say that it is the same here.  I personally still check in from time to time, but I no longer check daily like I used  up until earlier this year.  I miss the old days of course, but I understand why the site has gone so quiet.

I would love it if Hasbro could pull a surprise like they just did with a new round of G1 reissues for the transformer line, on old school packaging.  Do the same thing with GI Joe, even though most of the ARAH molds are gone.  It would be nice, but I know it won't happen due to lack of support, and the lack of interest in selling"war" toys.  Especially without a corresponding media tie-in.

Anyway, anyone still out there who wants to chime in with an opinion?

Happy New Year for 2018!!!!!

Can't believe it has been a year since I posted this for 2017.

I guess the biggest news was an official release date/year for the next Joe movie.  Here's hoping 2018 provides more news and new goodies.

Also, first post of 2018! 

I hope there are still some people reading the board.

Have to say they did a great job on Crystal Ball.  Only nitpick I have is his facial expression.  Looks a little goofy/off, to me, but not so much as to affect the overall quality of the figure.

I figure a new head and vest while everything else is a reuse.  Although there could be some vests from winter themed figures to use.

Saw the CC Arctic figure, and not that impressed.  I would have preferred they went with the more cartoon accurate dark grey and shorter coat.
