The Twitter links to a Facebook post, which further links to this in the comments:
http://generalsjoes.com/2017/09/13/g-i-joe-comics-from-idw-publishing-are-at-a-crossroads/

>GeneralsJoes will no longer be covering or providing coverage of IDW Publishing’s G.I. Joe comics until something can be done about writer Aubrey Sitterson.

>It started in the G.I. Joe: Discussion Facebook group where some members were talking about a particular G.I. Joe cover, which caused Mr. Sitterson to get exceptionally hostile towards the fans to the point where he posted an image of himself giving the middle finger with a blatant image of the president blowing his own brains out on a t-shirt.

>Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan of Donald Trump (an issue I will NOT be discussing further so don’t bother asking) but the gesture struck me as being completely out of line for a creator who is attempting to engage with the fan base. As if that wasn’t bad enough, when one of the admins stepped in, Mr. Sitterson fell back to his personal social media platform and proceeded to accuse the entire group of being homophobes and racists, a complete and total misrepresentation of the facts. He has used this same tactic with a recent exchange regarding folks expressing sympathy and emotion for the events of September 11th.

>Since then he has continuously posted virulent and aggressive posts through social media while at the same time promoting G.I. Joe, and over the past several weeks I have grown increasingly uncomfortable with how closely linked the G.I. Joe brand has become with his own mode of online commentary. Mr. Sitterson has spent a lot of time in the wrestling world, and he certainly seems to be working to generate heat, hoping that this heat will spill over into sales and attention for the G.I. Joe comics.

Was anybody here aware this was going on? Do any of us even read "G.I. Joe"?

Wait... G.I. Joe fans are conservatives and the comic's writer is in controversy because the fans don't like that she's a raging leftist and IDW acknowledges that?

That's a whole new world right there.

Nah. They might pull him off the book though. Which, from what I've gathered, probably wouldn't be all that unwelcome. His book is definitely not as well-received as Hama's is.


Dude's a twat though for a lots of reasons. "Waah. Non-New Yorkers can't relate to 9/11. Waaah, MAGA losers!" We get it. You hate conservatives and you hate Trump. You and 90% of the entertainment industry.

Everyone can have their own views, but GI Joe is definitely a comic that I would assume has a pretty strong conservative following and homeboy should have probably gauged that better before going off on a weird tirade that would probably offend a good deal of people on both the right and the left though. But asking for civility and restraint in this day and age is just too much.

I've worked with Hasbro for 20 years and when I was talking to some of them privately at Hascon, many of them were of the opinion that the individual licenses to IDW should be allowed to expire and either do the comics in house or find a new publisher. That was before this shit happened. I can only imagine the storm that has been going on this week.

Honestly, I feel like there should be greater regulation by companies of what their employees spout off about on their official, public social media accounts, because on those accounts they're basically representing their employers. If you want rant about something, make an account that isn't connected to your face and your career. That goes for any kind of rant, whether it's judged to be "Right" or "Left".
>>
>>95313078

This shared universe thing has been an ill conceived franchise killer.

And thry seem to have no idea what to do with Joe outside of Hama. Treating like it's broken and needs fixing doesn't help.

It's team based Metal Gear. This should not be that hard.

Aren't there two different GI Joe comics going on though? Like one in the Hama tradition, or maybe he's still writing it, and this one that takes place in a shared universe.

Larry Hama is 68 and probably still one of the coolest people in comics, saw him at a con Labor day weekend walking in the street with his aviator shades on and his jacket slung over one shoulder.
>>
>>95313814
I'm guessing it was this one, that they billed as their gay cover, for cheap heat.

It's not even GOOD gay shit.

>>95313027
Yeah Larry Hama was working a ton of his Vietnam issues out in those early days.

Also there's a reason Cobra Commander's American.

I don't mind leftists writing GI Joe (as long as they are not completely anti-military, since, well, it's a military unit. Larry Hama is a leftist. No one cared. You know why? No one knew! It was not a political book. Cobra are unambiguously evil unlike some enemies in real wars. But maybe if you are an outright Marxist and writing on a 1980s book based on a military themed cartoon, don't go out of your way to antagonize conservative readers?

>>95314338

Larry Hama is just too cool. Met him at a con in Indiana once. Shook his hand and thanked him for his service. He's really sharp and very honest about why he writes certain things. And a legitimate badass too.

And he's a liberal who isn't frothing at the mouth like the very vocal minority you see on campuses are. Or like Aubrey is. He's someone who just doesn't feel the need to bash you on the head with his views and I can appreciate that from any writer nowadays.

>>95314089
>>made a point to have quick kick beat snake eyes at martial arts as a stand against whitewashing

I am all for humbling Snake Eyes (because outside of Hama and maybe Renegades, he is portrayed as a near unbeatable martial artists and often reaches Gary Stu levels of annoying) but that shit is stupid, especially since it was an Asian writer who made the decision to make Snake Eyes white. Snake Eyes wasn't a white savior nor did he appropriate Arashikage culture, he was accepted by the Arashikage.


>>relaunched gi joe as 'scarlett's strike force' (YASS QUEEN, SLAY!)
I really don't see the problem with that considering that Duke was out and Colton was gone. I honestly don't know what happened to Hawk (if he even exists in the IDW, ditto for Flagg) but he doesn't seem to be in the picture either.

Scarlett is one of the highest ranking Joes and she was shown to be a leader in the comics and even in the old cartoons so why not?

And I feel that people should realize that what a person thinks on its own, is not the same thing as what his employer thinks, or his friends think, or his family thinks.

Because right now we are at the same level as the 50s eastern bloc, where you can get your life destroyed for thinking different (not even acting upon your beliefs - just by thinking them out loud), and your family and friends can be put under surveillance for something they not did, only because of their association to you.

Except that it is also much, much worse, as everyone is active on the Internet, so it takes one loser with too much time on his hand to dig up something you said years ago, and quote it out of context in a way that makes you look like a hypocrite or a Nazi. And that's enough to have people lose their jobs nowadays.

Years ago in SDCC in a Marvel panel, before IDW announced that they had the rights to ROM, a fan asked about ROM and Alonso said that if they ever got the rights to him that Bendis would be the one to

Bendis also said he wanted to write ROM and had Marvel had the rights to him he would have re-introduced ROM in his GotG run and probably make him part of the Guardians.

The other person that wants him in Marvel is James Gunn, he said that if Marvel had ROM he would pitch a movie for them.

Because Joe Writer, who works on the biggest comics of a big comic book company, will gather much more attention than LeetHacker666. And everyone wants attention, this is a fact.

And because social media giants actively encourage it. There are some sites which require real life identification to verify your account (LinkedIn), Facebook said it in the past that they are not tolerating fake people accounts either. They want you to post as much information of yourself as possible, because that is their real currency - knowing everything there is to know about you. This is used for targeted ads that they make money of, or just plain bartered on the black market.

You don't see warnings like on this pic anymore. Everybody wants your personal info.

I feel like Gunn doing a Rom movie could be good, as long as he toned down the GOTG2 level obnoxious humor. The rest sounds awful.

>>95315099
>Bendis also said he wanted to write ROM and had Marvel had the rights to him he would have re-introduced ROM in his GotG run and probably make him part of the Guardians.

Technically the space-knights appeared in Annihilators before, which was sort of the group that came after GotG, so that KIND OF works. Of course, in practice, it would not, because Bendis would ignore EVERYTHING that happened there.

I still want to see if Quasar hooked up with that space knight chick or not, she had the hots for him.
>>
>>95313160
They could have pulled the shared universe if it wasn't for the constant crossovers. One self contained crossover every 2 or 3 years would be fine.

Like the Transformers vs ROM crossover is pretty good, and it works because it doesn't interrupt any of the other stories.

Revolutionaries was a good idea but the stories weren't that great, the only highlight of that comic was Kup and Ian's relationship and maybe Blackrock's antics. Honestly trying to shove characters from every franchise in every issue also made it hard to follow.

In and of itself I don't mind, but given his overall MO it seems like he's doing it as part of his agenda not organically, and do you realy need to put the name of the team leader in the title of the book?
>>
>>95315001
I mean if a company didn't like your opinion you'd get fired 50 years ago. When you are an employee you have to conduct yourself in a way that doesn't make your company fire you.

Yeah, no. There has never been a point in history where doing stupid shit on your own time that reflects poorly on the people you associate with couldn't have ramifications, like losing your job.

>>95313666
Can't find it but I also read that interview with her Rodriguez and it looks like she wanted the comic.

Aubrey is done so they should definitely let her write it, and she has Skywarp to mess with too.

>>95315591
Renegades did it better, with Scatlett and Duke's relationship becoming more interesting and really Duke himself becoming more interesting as a sergeant who'll put his men ahead of mission success. It was wise enough to never make either of them 100% right or wrong when they had a conflict, but to present it as a difficult command decision.

>>95315719
Yeah, have Snake Eyes realize he's gotten sloppy. Do a whole ARC about him training and working to take down whoever's wearing that evil mask again. That'd be fucking tight.

>>
>>95315778
Making Scarlett a rogue Lt was a pretty good move on Renegades. It added a good bit of character interaction, even if there was a touch of cliche to the whole inexperienced commissioned officer bit.

God I wish that show had gotten a second season.
>>
>>95315887
I was confused so I looked it up and yeah the new book is going to be called Scarlett's Strike Force (did they drop the name GI Joe: Masked?)

That said I don't think that's happening anymore, at least not with Aubrey.

>>95315778
I think Renegades was also the first time Duke was an interesting character to me.

Hell no. The Decepticons have always treated him like shit. Always. Hell, it seems like the only reason he even hung around was because it filled him with a sense of belonging if AHM was anything to go by. He's making the same move as Thundercracker by giving up on Cybertronians and it's a good one.
>I just want to see Skywarp refuse to befriend or care about any humans
Nah. He's fine caring about humans, it makes sense and would parallel TC pretty well, the problem is the writer of G.I Joe sucks and managed to make Skywarp a boring, arrogant, snob instead of a childish, tsundere punk.

It's not worth much by itself. IDW doesn't have any IPs. If they want to own a publisher, they already do. They own Wizards of the Coast, which publishes Hardcover and paperback prose novels. I guess they could fold comic publishing into WOTC too.

Frankly, buying their own media empire is a higher priority. They have Boulder Media now doing almost every upcoming cartoon tie in and the new animated Transformers movie.

Their buyout of Lionsgate fell thru, but they're still looking for a studio to outright buy.

They owned a a bigger stake in Discovery Channel, but sold when the Hub failed. Netflix is the model they want for future shows now.

Disney offered them a stock swap for an ownership stake, to bring them directly into that empire, but Hasbro want their own media empire. Even if it's small. They want to own it. Like a couple buying their first house. It might be small, but they own it.

Comics are only worth money in the 21st century if there are IPs involved. IDW just doesn't have any.

If Hasbro were in the market to buy a publisher that owns some IPs, they'd buy Archie. (Which is VERY much up for grabs right now.) Plus, Archie corporate HQ is basically down the highway a spell from Pawtucket.

Right now Hasbro title sales are so bad for IDW that they wouldn't even take a hit if they lost them all.

You want him to regress as a character? No Thanks. besides Megatron quit and Galvatron fucked him over, he should be pretty done with the Decepticons.

>How are Skywarp and Thundercracker both on Earth but they still haven't met since All Hail Megatron?

Pretty sure Thundercracker wouldn't take kindly to someone who shot him and left him for dead, no matter how tight he was with Skywarp. That said they are both going to be in the TC special comic (where he makes that movie about Starscream) so they might meet up.

>>95316619
Probably because Sitterson originally wanted Starscream but was told no, so they gave him Skywarp (and I guess Barber had dibs on TC).

I did like his relationship with Rock tho, he is kind of tsundere about him but other than that he's just like Starscream, yeah.

Hopefully whoever gets the comic after Sitterson does a better job with him.

The fact that we're even appreciating writers based on not shoving their political propaganda bullshit into their works demonstrates a huge issue in the comic book industry.

Why would we want to see Skywarp follow the exact same path as Thundercracker, though? It works better if this all goes wrong, else we're just getting the same story all over again, without the pet dog.

>>95316917

>You want him to regress as a character? No Thanks. besides Megatron quit and Galvatron fucked him over, he should be pretty done with the Decepticons.

Not sure how it's regression for him to stay true to the one thing that's always been part of his character; loyalty. Traditionally, he's always been loyal to his leader, but Galvatron didn't really care about the Decepticon cause, and Skywarp realised that too late.

What becomes of the loyal soldier betrayed by his leaders, and will he still fight for his cause when no-one else will?

There's more interesting things you could do with him than having him do the same things Thundercracker already did.

>Pretty sure Thundercracker wouldn't take kindly to someone who shot him and left him for dead, no matter how tight he was with Skywarp. That said they are both going to be in the TC special comic (where he makes that movie about Starscream) so they might meet up.

Thundercracker seemed to think Skywarp was really trying to kill him, we still don't know if this is true. It was a point-blank shot, so either he wasn't trying to kill him, or he's really bad at his job.

We still need to know if they're really brothers or not, too.

Politics in comics isn't the issue. Not for me at least. It's *how* certain views are conveyed in-story. See: Pretty any Marvel book nowadays. I don't mind having a political message in a book. But I do mind a book (And its author) taking a seriously holier-than-thou approach or beating me over the head with their message. Subtlety goes a long way.

That's the thing about Skywarp. It's heavily implied in AHM he's not really there for the politics, he was there to be apart of something, he followed Starscream and TC because they were family and admired Megatron because he filled him with purpose. Bombshell provoked the hell out of Skywarp in AHM over this. The only major Decepticon who was ever loyal to the cause for the sake of the ideals it stood for was Soundwave.

As for following Thundercracker? I don't think so. Skywarp isn't fond of humans or organics whereas TC was always unfond of the idea of razing planets to the ground so it's a far more bumpy road.

I hate this stuff. The reliance on dumb sci-fi excesses like the nanobots and mecha suits were (part of) what ruined the first live movie. And although some enjoy it for the retro cheese factor most agree that the alien serpent people of Cobra-La in the cartoon movie were awful. Some limited sci-fi elements are okay when they are realistic, like HAARP in Resolute. Or during Transformers crossovers, etc., which should be once in a blue moon things.

The problem is they see the superhero boom and want to get in on that action. And they also want to divorce the brand from 'problematic' elements like guns and war and terrorism. I remember a quote from one of the actors in the first live movie where he said something like "At first I didn't want to do it because I don't want to promote war to kids, but then I realized it's more like X-Men." That's the problem. It's not supposed to be X-Men. Military elements are baked into Joe's DNA. Remove them and you have nothing.

Thanks to different writers, the idea of what the Decepticon cause is has changed. Skywarp being on board with following Megatron to conquer the galaxy and loot planets of their energy sounds more plausible than him caring about the Communist-inspired cause that the Barber/Roberts era has given the Decepticons. He's there for the fighting and to follow a leader who is his hero.
>>
>>95318352
I wouldn't say I'm necessarily against robots in it per se. Although I think the prominence of robots in the show came from the fact that they couldn't show them shooting humans on a kids cartoon, and then they got transferred to the comic. But limited use of things like robots are okay, the problem comes when they go so hard into the fantastical sci fi stuff that it's not recognizable as a military team book any more.
>>
>>95318395
>He's there for the fighting and to follow a leader who is his hero.
And now that there's no fighting to be had and all his heroes are gone, where does he go now? He, like all the other characters, has to find a new place in a totally different world after 4 million years of nonstop fighting.

A lot of the Decepticons are stuck in a ghetto on Cybertron, not wanting any place in the new world as losers of the war, and possibly not wanting Soundwave's commune of peace and equality either, but they have no leader to rally them.

It's a rough time to be a Decepticon, or a fan of Decepticons. A lot of them, Skywarp included, would probably get right back to the war, if only there was someone to lead them.

He doesn't have what it takes to lead himself, but it might be an entertaining disaster to read about.

Hasbro fired Beast Machines & Action Man story editor, Bob Skir, for going on Transformers forums and attacking Transformers fans. He had a half dozen episodes of AM left to produce and Hasbro asked Mainframe to walk him out the door and not to bring him back. Ever. IIRC, that was when Dan DiDio worked at Mainframe.

This GI Joe series is already finished. He was starting to work on the next GI Joe vol. The Scarlett's Strike Force thing.

Was.

From what I know from Hasbro directly, he is gone as of this afternoon. This was literally their afternoon today in Pawtucket. Every major GI Joe forum has pulled support for this. Even if IDW is trying to play it cool for now, we'll see a new writer announced in the next week or so when this has calmed down.

Aubrey is a good dude... Or he was. He was a friend of mine before he moved to LA, but the guy can't keep a job, he periodically fucks his career up in some weird cycle of self destruction. He was Robert Kirkmans best friend (check the back of irredeemable ant-man) and when Kirkman hired him to be his personal editor after marvel shitcanned him he managed to ruin his entire friendship with the guy right before the AMC checks came in. Then he was the community manager at THQ for the WWE games and got the boot...and in between He got fired by friend of Trump; Vincent K McMahon himself when he was working for WWE website. I haven't seen him since he left NYC but although he was a contrarian dick he was always sharp and a decent bro, I never knew him to be full SJW back then.

That being said, they keep insisting what they meant by their tweet and who it was directed towards are the people who talk about themselves in regards to 9/11 and make it about themselves for a pity party and virtue signal.

I think I works if you take the Metal Gear approach. The characters are a bit goofy and you deal with both realistic and fantastic situations, but it's treated with the respect and tone of a battlefield drama most of the time.

Lots of stuff that flat-out contradicts the show or shits on whatever worldbuilding it tries to set up. Hackneyed plots that change characters, motives, and past events retroactively. Writers who don't care enough to watch the show. Writers who do watch the show, and actively shit on episodes because they're "problematic." Artists who don't care enough to draw four-legged poses. Artists who lazily paste in stock images and use fanart thinking it's canon. Zero consistency or oversight. Real-world politics, like the election storyline and SJW dragons. Take your pick.

Yeah, I know what that beef was about with Kirkman, it's kinda fucked up I don't want to put his biz out there, but he really dropped the ball with him.

Nobody was posting "Thank God for the Iraq War" on their Twitter profiles on 9/11, fuck off. If Sitterson had just complained about politicians using 9/11 to push for war I doubt anyone would care. Of course he backtracked after the fact and tried to make out that his original post was some anti-Trump thing for pity points, but that's not what he said.

I'm a wrestling fan and that guy's the biggest fucking mark on the planet. Everything he does screams "please hire me, WWE."

Whenever a wrestler botches a move he'll defend it as "it's supposed to look like a real fight and in real fights things look sloppy." Whenever a segment on a wrestling show gets complete apathy from the crowd he'll say it was supposed to do that and the apathy is real heel heat. He desperately wants to get hired by WWE like other guys on Twitter have done and he's really, really sad.

I mean I'm not saying virulent hate is needed toward illegal immigrants, but like I see people on social media go "[Famous Person]'s family started out in America as illegal immigrants, so really you should accept illegals!" and all I can think is that's fucking irrelevant. No one ever dreams of being an immigrant, no one wishes that on their children. They made something of their lives in spite of being immigrants. Pulled themselves out of the gutter and all that jazz, and I can respect that, but at the same time they're mostly outliers. Most ARE content with being dregs and drains on taxpayers, no matter how many offers you give to help them, and I don't see why I should have to accept them along with the actual hard workers. The All-or-nothing mindset just leads to a backlash in the other direction.

Maybe?
Hama does have a lot of the same Military Realism surrounded by Insane Cartoon Men and Scifi Bullshit. And a fair amount of the late-MGS "soldiers are victims of the politics that exploit them" too.

And yes, you should start with the classic comics, the original Larry Hama ARAH+Special Missions is still the high point of the franchise. Even his own newer stuff isn't as good.

There's the other side of it where there was a huge increase in child only illegal immigration after daca was put in place.

What you don't seem to get is that allowing them to stay rewards their parents and therefore encourages future immigrants to continue to illegally enter the country, with the knowledge that even if they get sent back their anchor babies will be able to live the high life and send money home. If you want less lawlessness, you should not reward it.
>>
>>95323626
The irony is that I know some legal Mexicans and their children who are US citizens who hate illegal immigrants yet they all have legal status thanks to one of their grandmothers entering illegally to the US.

Grandmother went illegaly to the US and only got her greencard by marrying a white guy, then she became a citizen and used her status to bring the rest of the family in.

Mind you this was back in the 1940's

Bothering to make casual wear and it's just a fucking jumpsuit instead of differentiating the armor and undergarments more distinctly.
Keeping the one thing you SHOULD change, Leoric's whip. A literal symbol of tyranny in the hands of the good king was always a bad idea.

One good thing: The connectable staves and everyone getting a shield.

Also if anyone should've been raceswitched it should've been Whitterquick, a cheetah totem from a grassy savanna who was an expert tracker and hunter, skills prized by the elite knights of southern african kingdoms. and i mean everywhere but come on.

The funny thing is that the US refuge status that the Obama Administration offered to the Haitians and is now.... Well not happening anymore (did the Trump administration take it back? I don't know) really took Mexico by surprise.

Wave after wave of Haitian came to Tijuana to try to cross to the US and some of them stayed in Tijuana and from what I've heard from a friend in Tijuana they seem to be doing OK. Right now the Venezuelans started coming in trying to get to the US but they can't and some of them are staying in Tijuana or moving to other parts in Mexico.

Also every time the US deports someone they kick them out to Mexico regardless of them being Mexican or not, and it mostly happens in Tijuana which is why that city is so overpopulated right now with different people from different parts of Mexico and even the world it's crazy.

Because Marvel has a lot of people in it who were there because of nepotism more than anything, and while I am aware that the comic industry does run on nepotism it runs heavy in Marvel.

Especially if you're in Quesada's buddy club.

Like Greg Land, regardless of his work is always going to get work in Marvel, Quesada even said it himself that as long as he worked in Marvel that Land was going to get work. Ditto for people like Bendis and Maleev, they will always get work there because they are friends with Quesada and other higher ups, they aren't going to kick them out no matter what they do.

Raceswapping in G.I. Joe is nothing new. In the comic and on the toy shelves, Ace was a White guy in an astronaut suit. In the cartoon, he look like Jimmy Smits.

AND NO ONE CALLED YOU A RACIST FOR NOT LIKING IT!

BTW, don't they toss people out of the military for being this fat? That's what happened to me after all.

Honestly I really liked the Hasbro universe a lot of ideas flowed well together and Rom might be one of the best comics I've read. but this just sucks.

Aubrey had so much energy and hype about writing joe and it showed say what you will but these last 8 issues made Joe cool again. but this attitude just sucks and when two pillars of the joe community are basically going "Fuck this guy." it's hard to to see a positive end here. shit just a shitty situation.

Anon, you have to realize there are millions of normies who don't even use adblock. They see every ad and DO, especially around christmas, click and spend.

It's why IGN started taking a piece of those linked sales. Companies aren't dumb. Even if you think they are. Not the fiscal wing. Sometimes the marketing pipe-dreamers are.

If there is no clear ROI they would not continue the ad. Clicks and hovers are counted and tracked as well as sales. The shit works VERY well.

An alternative way to think of it is by looking at comments on porn videos. I don't think I know a single person autistic enough to do it. But you see hundreds. All sorts of dumb people exist.

Outside of reintroducing Rom and the Micronauts it feels like hasbro is grasping at straws. Which is kinda sad because I would love to see someone take stretch Armstrong or inhumanoids and put some real imagination and creativity into it. The shared universe thing doesn't seem to work beyond transformers,gijoe,micronauts,and rom and that's kinda cause the groundwork had already been layed out for them by 70's/80's marvel. On a side note I'm upset the most over stretch armstrong,whenever I look at the toy I get a sense of some doc savage esc adventurer with stretch powers,sad to see they went the lazy route and just made yet another teen superhero.

What if they'd rather buy them but only if they're written by another writer. Comics is one of the few mediums I agree with the "off with their head" sentiment. Especially over something like being a faggot on 9/11 when you're writing GI FUCKING JOE.

Except it doesn't sacrifice story for the political aspect. If this was made in 2017, it would've had the president's face plastered on the panel, screaming something negative about minorities, and getting beaten up while Cap gives him an equality speech.

The problem isn't politics, the problem is doing politics 24/7, and sacrificing story and quality specifically to say the same shit over and over again.

Why do GI Joe cunts think that Hasbo gives a shit about their franchise?

Hasbro themselves said that they don't have any plans for GI Joe unless they make a movie. And seeing how hard both of the movies bombed nobody is in a rush to make movies.

Hasbro doesn't want to make a GI Joe cartoon because nobody cares about them and they get canned mid season.

Hasbro doesn't give a shit about some comic that literally nobody reads.

Hasbro doesn't even want to make any classis GI Joe toys they just shit them out if they can combine them with Transformers or something.

Hasbro does not want anything to do with GI joe. They don't give a shit about the franchise.

Why are GI Joe fans so deluded into thinking that Hasbro gives a lick of shit about them? Is the self-delusion that big because they can't grasp the fact that their franchise has the relevance of Thundercats?

I think the best is that most people on twitter would say the same thing about 4chan and other "anonymous" posting sites. "We should be able to out these shitlords" seems to be half the reason twitter exists.

>>95329629
The problem is international in nature. They can't even sell Nerf "guns" anymore because South America makes them change the term to "blaster" (which, to be fair, fits the faggot ass US and Europe markets all the same).

GI Joe is literally "guys with guns" the toy line. Since it's become harder and harder to sell toys with guns to children (this started post columbine with, and this is a true annecdote) since some schools started threatening to suspend kids for having inch-large plastic guns with their figures in school. If you notice, that's when the smaller figures took a back seat for the Doll-sized ones for few years while shit like The Corps! did business.

Now GI Joe is legitimately seen, like many of Hasbro action products, to be for manchildren and NOBODY else. Just look at the Star Wars marketing with the SNL skit and manchild Fat lady in the chewy mask (both of which, the latter definitely, were planned). They didn't even make Rey because they assume that group of dudes would especially hate her.

Is it really that fucking hard to comrehend that people don't care about war toy and just want colourful super heroes?

Overwatch is what Sunbow GI Joe was, but nobody liked it because it was too cartoony and everyone wanted their hurr Hama hurr serious military hurrr version.
