Interesting!

I would much rather have a cartoon, even a short series like the one they did/are doing for Transformers. But I'm happy for potential new Joe media!!

With live action, I'm a little more concerned about what "creative liberties" get taken.

With cartoons, you can draw on a wealth of available historical source material, and then tell new stories.
You could even take a comic book arc and work that into a mini-series.

With live action, all of the special effects have to look real and not cheesy.
But then toe the line of not going too far, as we want to bridge the generational gap of parents sharing the love of Joe with kids and early teens.

Can't do that with blood spurting dismemberment, ninja sword beheadings, or graphic exit wounds...
It doesn't have to be all chutes deploying, but I think you know what I mean...


I would have thought that a show about Chuckles or mabee the story line from the comics where Duke was black ops would have been a better choice. Seems like a show about Lady Jaye is totally random. Although, if they do cast Adrianne Palicki in the role, she was awesome in shield and kids already know her as lady jaye from the movie.

That said i can't agree with you more about the cartoon. Renegades was a HUGE deal to me personally. It was a great show and not too modernized with anime crap.

Not sure if you are following the Untold tales last few issues of the Hama book (276, 277, etc.)

Untold Tales would be a great way to do it. You could still have a team, but focus on an individual mission set in a random time for that small group of the team that was sent. Too many characters would be challenging to develop. But that was the real beauty of Renegades. They had the core group, and then they encountered Airtight, Snow-Job, Law and some other characters throughout, without trying to keep every character in every show.

I would love to have a story about Recondo getting in a jam and suddenly being on an arctic operation with Snow Job and a few others. Have him complaining about hating the cold, but still be a hero in the story. Flashbacks to surviving some terrible icy incident in Wheaton, Wisconsin while growing up. And possibly falling through the ice and crawling back out.

Then have him get the drop on some Snow Serpents and accomplish the mission.

"Just because I hate the cold, doesn't mean I can't fight in it. I'm a soldier. Duty. Honor. Courage. Yo Joe!"

Your idea makes me wish we could get back to that fan fiction role play game we did a few years ago with skinny. I would love to find a way to attempt that again.

I saw one of these today on ebay and i couldn't believe it. This was the first toy i used as a vehicle for my gi joe's. The one i had was in a trade from a friend and it didn't have the canopy. But i remember my python patrol officer took sooo many rides in this.

I had the jet as a kid, cool stuff. What do you guys think could happen if Disney got their hands on G.I. Joe?

We had one like that and a 6 wheel one with a red canopy. They worked great with Joe's and Cobra.
