And to answer his question… the reason why they bothered getting the licenses to this series and not E-Swat is because the director’s favorite GI JOE action figures as a child were clearly Baroness, Storm Shadow, and Snake Eyes.  That’s why they’re recognizable in the movie, even when nobody else is.

Was that snide?  That may have been snide.
