I would pay good money for a 2-hour long movie version of this commercial. I don't mean a movie with these special effects, I mean literally 2 non-stop hours of this commercial.
No movie will ever be as exciting as that announcer saying "MARRRVEL COMICS!"
Forty dollars well spent.
What the hell is the hook of "Battle Corps?" That doesn't mean anything and you know it, GI Joe. They don't have a theme like ninjas or outer space. They're just some guys. You just needed a fourth team so you put all the Joes who don't fit the other themes in there. You should have called them Hufflepuff Squad or something. You've failed America!
It's always nice to hear Chris Latta as Cobra Commander.
Just in case you forgot about this:
I thought the comic got way too into the snake eyes canon. Ninja drift, if you will.
The Marvels comics were fantastic. They went down some very bizarre holes.
I never followed those comics, but Chris Sims over at comicsalliance.com writes about them fairly often. Bet you didn't know this happened:
I did catch Larry Hama's "Wolverine" run in the 90s and I don't know if it gets enough praise, though I'm guessing it probably doesn't.
Kobra Kommander looks like a dumbo octopus
These look like alt takes from Captain Power.
0:24 is indistinguishable from any given Masters of the Universe shot.
This was a real commercial?
Starting at 0:30, I thought they were tipping their hand that it was a joke and was expecting the College Humor logo to pop up.

I like toe-headed Duke and the robot blowing up when it tried to brush a pipe aside.

Not doing a live action reboot series of GI Joe to try to capitalize on the success of Power Rangers in the 90s was a missed opportunity, definitely.
They did a live-action TMNT reboot instead (and added a female turtle!)
This is fucking awesome, I feel like I saw Man-at-Arms in there at one point and I love that Cobra Commander's hood seems to be plastic?
