Part II is already out. I saw it on Friday. BTW, this was much better than the live action Paramount picture I saw this morning. Their winks to the fans were better. I hate the cartoon, but I can appreciate it for what it is.

Part 2 is on the same site. It's deceptive. Click on part two and wait. Part 2 will begin.

Now THIS is what I'm talkin about!! BRAVO!!

I could watch this stuff all day, and man-o-man how it makes me wanna get out the toys and PLAY!! Put a 10 minute insert of these TOYS IN ACTION episode in between shows on the cartoon network or something, and watch the toys fly off the shelves because the kids can't get to them fast enough.

Give us more please!

I liked the intentional gaffes like Cobra Commanders appearance changing in every scene.

I like that the used Hawk.

I loved the voices. The pairing of Breaker and Beachhead was funny. Shipwreck's Nicholson voice was cool. The Crimson Twins and Major Bludd sounded right. Also cool was that the Baroness didn't talk, a nod to the differences between her cartoon accent and the Hama-verse and now movie-verse voice.

I liked how no one could hit anything.

Shipwreck and Snake-Eyes with Polly and then a can of Yo-Joe Cola. Even a reference to mermaids.

I also liked how they took the 1983 G.I. Joe HQ and put it on a gray foundation so it resembled the cartoon

base and they even used the checkpoint.

Whoever did that knew what they were doing. It was more an homage to the Sunbow cartoons, but it had Hama elements. It is a perfect lead-in to the Paramount film.
