I'm all for the characters' original designs, e.g., Destro with a silver head; CC with a hood and/or chrome battle helmet; Baroness in dominatrix garb.  And it's freaking G.I. Joe, so it's going to come with a healthy dose of cheese and camp.  But that was true of Transformers, too, and I think they nailed just the right tone in that movie.  If they can achieve a similar balance between realism and nostalgic cornball as Transformers, I'd be happy (although it'd be even better if they got closer to X-Men 1&2).

Quick question regarding old chrome dome....I read the Marvel comics off and on when I was a kid, and read the Joe comic now (and watched the toon religiously as a kid as well), but I don't seem to recall exactly why Destro's head is silver/metal?  Its probably a dumb question, and maybe I'm just forgetting, but could someone enlighten me as to ol' Destro's story there?

EDIT: I was reading through this bio, which mentions it being a "family mask", but haven't found much more than that.  I have nightmares of the "mask" in the movie turning out something like Dr. Doom's in the F4 movies.

Hot!  Too bad they didn't go with a more comic style outfit.  Looks like they're going for more of the Sigma Six type uniform.

Still, can I say "HOT" again?   ;D

She's very superhero looking. I like the comic book version better.

I like it. Not quite as much as I liked Snake Eyes, but it's still OK.

I do hope the rest of the team looks a little more traditional than Scarlett here.

GIJoe Club has it tagged as "in battle suit".

Assuming that label is not just their own take on it, that leads me to believe (and hope) that this won't be her only outfit.  It's certainly pretty tasty, but I'd like to see the traditional outfit as well.

She will make a great action figure. I can't wait to use her parts for customizing fodder.

Thanks for posting that.  Wow - lots of black in this movie.  I wonder if that is their "costumes" throughout, or for just a specific portion.  If it is, its kind of boring, they all look pretty much the same (as far as the Joes go anyways).

Screw the black costumes, show more pics of the ******* hot chicks.

My guess is that Scarlett, Baroness and Cover Girl (the blonde is Cover Girl, right?) are going to be very popular characters in this movie.

I actually like the look of the costumes for the most part.  Especially Storm Shadow.  Very cool, sleek and bad ass.

Seeing Sienna Miller as the Baroness I can't help but think she's channeling Kate Beckinsale from the Underworld movies. 

Oh, and I finally saw a film with that Channing Tatum guy in it, Supercross, and I really hope he's improved his acting skills because the dude was a real meat head in that film.  Apparently he's got the skills to do action movies but, still...
