These look awesome.

Who was the genius that approved of the movie concept when these would have been awesome?

The movies should have been more like a war films.

With this kind of future battle tank and helicopter elements.

Snake Eyes has a little 'crysis' thing going on in the first two pics.

Keith Christensen's inclusion of the Arashikage's "dot-dot dash" icon into his Snake-Eye's mask is interesting but the body armor has too many Samurai throw-backs to it for someone trained in Ninjitsu for me.

man that's alot of hyphens for one sentence.

Jeez...these are fantastic!
Why are these films so mediocre?
Seems like only Snake-Eyes delivers in these movies.
Probably since he's doesn't speak & isn't saying the awful dialogue they write.
Still..better than Transformers garbage.

Woah... these are impressive. I want these concept artists to do a full run on a Joe comicbook or something, cause leaving this concept art out to dry is just a waste.

Say what you will about the movie, the concept art and design work was most impressive! Much better to the lankier and awkward designs of the first movie.

These artist renderings are in the style that made kids like me, at the time fall in love with GI JOE! The vehicles were just futuristic enough to still be believable but fun and exciting. The helicopters look like a variation of the F.A.N.G and the final picture is definitely a take on the A.W.E. Striker. The number one problem with these films is they tried too hard to make them something they're not and get too far away from the original source material. GI JOE is about America fighting the good fight against terrorism, not some "let's all hold hands global melting pot". As much as the 2nd film fixed, it still left lots of holes and they didn't need to kill off all the first cast to straighten it out.
