Look at it as a "behind the music" episode....(I know VH1 is not as hip as whatever MTVpOd you kids watch)
Take teen sensation band "xyz"... they make TONS of money making "bubble gum" music that the fans adore and can't get enough of.... years into this, the "BAND or Performer" wants to make THEIR own kind of music, the career dies, they end up addicted to something, years later a notstalgia tour gets them out of the tent they live in under an overpass, then a reality show, then back to obscurity.
Hasbro's "TEAM" is the Band...they make tons of money on formula revamps of RAH figs in 25th style... then they decide get a chance to "Do it THEIR WAY" and we get ROC to an extent and then POC..it is Joe the way THEY want it... next stop for them, rooming with Xavier Roberts on Celebrity Apprentice/Real World/Survivor.... next stop for us... finishing our Vintage collections.
Now that being said, I'll be all over POC, I kinda like it. As long as Hasbro makes a RAH inspired design or Resolute figure, I think it will be ok.
IF the Network that Hasbro is working on has the Rumored Joe cartoon and it is 1/2 as good as Clone Wars, it will drive kids to the line and we will all win to an extent.
As far as keeping this QnA related... I think one of our questions is going to be about if the Movie line uses a different plastic or fusing technique, cuz even highly skilled/expert customizers (ie NOT ME) have said the torsos don't like to come apart as easily. (I think we have 3 months till the next set is due...but that is going to be Q #1 for us..
