So again, why oh why oh why? The blue-hooded Cobra Commander is arguably the most iconic image from GIJOE, so what does it say about expectations for the upcoming film that the creators/adapters couldn’t be bothered to use it? I mean, it’s a fucking piece of blue cloth for Christ’s sake.

A cowl.

They’ve really only complicated their production with this… this thing. I’ve been waiting for this flick for some time (especially since seeing the teaser) but even having Joseph Gordon-Levitt as old helmet head isn’t going to help that… again, thing.




If the creators were unsure, shit there’s a wealth of information on cowls on the internet. On Wikipedia even. And there’s even some places that will custom make them for you.

My fanboy/nerd alert for this movie just went from Defcon 3 to Defecation 1.

Oh well, at least I can still be Defcon 3 over Jackie Earle Haley signing on to be Freddy Krueger. That is, unless the creators take a cue from the Joe creative team and decide to replace Freddy’s filth-encrusted Red and Green sweater we all know and love so well with a Cosby-esque Coogi instead.

Gosh I hope not.
