      sigh, i remember the good old days of 'Action Force', when small plastic soldiers had dignity and the inability to move their right arms out of a frankly inapropriate position. Red Shadows forever!

      Bwahaha Gnawgahyde looks like a cross between DumDum Dougan from Captain America, and Saxton Hale from Team Fortress 2..... Even as a kid playing with these things, I could never get my head round some of the names/specialisms.

      Crazylegs sounds amazing! I can imagine a really arty scene where he hums some Bach with a small relaxed smile on his face as he riddles various enemies with bullets in slow-mo. So basically Gary Oldman in Leon meets Dredd.

      I regretfully inform you that Clutch is actually in Retaliation. And I would really like Chuckles to be in a movie, but only if he is played by Dave Coulier.

      Two things: number 1 I'd like to point out (rather pedantically I admit) that the Fridge's weapon, though of unconventional shape, could still be a fully functioning military flail and therefore is useful in some situations (though in this case he'd have to up against Hannibal who'd need some kind of morning star to make it interesting and no, it still wouldn't make the movie)... number 2 and damned if I can remember the name of the film but isn't Chuckles a reference to the Hawaiian shirt wearing undercover agent in a classic gangster movie (something like Donnie Brasco or Good fellas) where the main character has to make to make contact him but can't believe he's the narc 'cause he's such a numb nuts... Can somebody help me with this? I remember him looking kinda like Herb in Two and a Half Men but I could be wrong...

      When you think about it, a film that actually starred all of these characters, with a sense of irony or not, could just be one of the best films ever made.

      Adam's 'famous guy' would be perfect playing the role of Crutch!

      RubberJoshy. I'm not sure if CHUCKLES was based off of a movie character or not, but his first appearance was in the G.I. Joe animated movie way back in good ole 1986. so no chance he is based off of any of the movies you asked about. He was a part of the "NEW AWESOME" group of heroes that the kids will just love!! Basically the same way Hasbro took a dump on us Transformer fans and killed 80% of the characters to bring the new hip Transformers. Also; and this is to Mr. Matt Looker, SEVERAL characters have been killed in the G.I. Joe universe. Damn...(sighs) I really am a geek...
