3DJoes ARAH Art Book HissTank

3DJoes stopped by to share his latest project with us. For those of you that love vintage G.I.Joe A Real American Hero artwork, then this’ll definitely spark your interest! Here are the details –

Collecting the art of G.I. Joe: Volume 1 (1982–1983) is now seeking funding on Kickstarter!

Collecting the Art of G.I. Joe: Volume 1 is a 60 page 8″x11″ celebration of the painted art of G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero. It covers the first two years of figures, vehicles, playsets and peripheral painted art, and includes a foreword by the original G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero Brand Manager, Kirk Bozigian!

Don’t miss the sponsor opportunities and the Kickstarter exclusive “To the Rescue” and “Stars and Stripes Forever” posters, limited to 100 copies of each.

The campaign ends ends on June 8th, so please make a pledge today!

Visionaries Logo Hisstank

In November of 2014, we brought you word of a Visionaries Knights of the Magical Light Collectors Guide Kickstater Campaign. Our friend OverkillWipeout stopped by to share the word that the book is now available to those outside of the Kickstarter campaign!

You can reserve your copy by visiting The PunchPartyPress Store. Make sure to give OW a follow on Twitter so you can let’em know when you’ve added the title to your collection!

You can join in on the discussion after the break!

Memorial Day 2015 Photos Images HD Instagram2

On behalf of all the members and staff of Hisstank.com, we’d like to wish you and yours a happy & health Memorial Day. We give thanks to those that have served and continue to serve. We remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and we swear to never forget.

“As we express our gratitude we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

We find ourselves gathered together to reflect on this one sentiment, uttered many years ago by President John F. Kennedy. Words, he believed, were useless unaccompanied by action. This is why we – the many – take time to remember and to honor our veterans – the few who were so willing to give of themselves to defend their brothers and their country.

While you’re enjoying time with family and friends today, don’t forget to take time to give thanks to those who made it all possible.

HISSTANK.com sponsor TheToySource posted up their latest newsletter. Check out the first part below and check the discussion for even more news from them.

PACIFIC RIM ULTRA DELUXE KAIJU OTACHI FLYING VERSION
NECA’s latest ultra-deluxe kaiju action figure from Pacific Rim is the winged form of Otachi, with a massive wingspan of nearly 2 feet. It’s extra-detailed, fully articulated and to scale with the Jaeger action figures, and includes a new feature… a flight stand that not only allows “in flight” poses, but the ability to hold a Jaeger figure so Otachi can “carry” it aloft! Otachi also includes interchangeable tongues, and as a special treat for collectors, the damaged tail stub on this figure can be removed to attach the full tail from the previously released Land Version of Otachi (sold separately). $64.99

***UPDATE***

Brian Savage has sent the following e-mail to Club Members:

We are now taking subscriptions for the next GIJCC Figure Subscription Service!  Release 4.0 is going to be a fantastic addition to your collection. You are an active member of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club you can subscribe nowthrough Tuesday, June 9th.

Mock-up images will be released today through the end of the subscription period. All images will be uploaded at GIJoeClub.com before the period ends. Please note that these are photoshop mock-ups and the final product may vary.   Also note that the colors are approximate as everyone’s computer screen has a different look/calibration.

The cost of the 12 figure subscription service is $324 (+ shipping for 6 shipments). You can pay all at once or in three installments of $108 (billed to your credit card). When you subscribe and choose pay by Installment, you will be billed for the first two month’s shipments. Then sometime during the second month of shipping (estimated to be November/December), you will be billed for the 3rd and 4th months’ shipments and sometime during the 4th month of shipping (estimated to be January/February) you will be billed for the final 2 months’ shipments.

Please note that for the installment payment option, there is a $5 service charge per billing while the pay in full option has one $5 service charge.  Please also note that for installment buyers, there is an additional charge each time a billing is attempted if your card is not approved. If your card has been declined and we have to rebill, we will only be able to retry your billing three (3) times before your subscription is cancelled. Each retry has an additional fee added to your total charge (please see the Terms and Conditions.)

This Figure Subscription Service is a “build to order process” so you can order as many as you like, until the order period closes. At that time, we will not process anymore subscriptions and we may/may not have additional figures in the club store at a higher per figure price.  Final figures colors/names/accessories may vary from the above descriptions and pictures.

Thanks for your support!

Brian

 

Transformers vs gijoe movie

Chris Sims of Comics Alliance recently had an interview with IDW Publishing’s comic series Transformers vs. GI Joe writer and artist Tom Scioli. In the interview Tom talks about the creative process, the large casts of characters, building a fictional universe, and many more interesting things. He also reveals that he has written a comic adaption of the Transformers vs. GI Joe movie… which, of course, is a movie that doesn’t actually exist! You’ll have to read the interview to find out more!
