Acid Rain Marine Laurel 01 Hisstank

Our friends at Ori Toy have share a fantastic gallery of the upcoming Acid Rain Laurel Mech. The Laurel Marine shares the same color scheme as the Stronghold Marine and Raptor Mk I, bolstering the Marine force with new mechanized armored suits.

The images shared are amazing, giving us a full turn around view of the Marine Laurel, including images of the highly detailed cockpit and service panel. Also shown is the Laurel Mech Pilot (the same figure we saw not too long ago that sports an new style of helmet). We’ve mirrored them here for your review.

I personally cannot wait to add this piece to my collection! Can the same be said for you? Join us after the break to check out more images and to sound off on the Acid Rain Laurel Marine Mech!

Transformers Combiner Wars Decepticon Viper 02 Hisstank

At NY Toy Fair a few weeks ago, we learned of a Transformers Combiner Wars Figure named Decepticon Viper. Viper, who is a homage to the Cobra Rattler, is a repaint of Transformers Combiners Wars Autobot Powerglide with a new/retooled face (that is very similar to a Cobra style mask).

New in package and loose images of this figure have been posted on the Greek Hasbro Website. These new images give us a clear look at Viper’s Flying  Decepti-Cobra Squadron insignia and classic Z06 on his wing.

It won’t be too long now before Viper will be available to the public. Do you plan on adding this figure to your collection, or do you prefer keeping the two universes separate? Join us after the break for discussion already in progress! For even more Transformers news, make sure to check out our sister site, TFW2005!

gijoe 6 inch turns swat cobra trooper

A new web page and facebook page have been created to help promote an upcoming Kickstarter for Cryptid Toys. The new page show turns for an upcoming 6-inch S.W.A.T. figure and 6-inch Ninja that looks just like a Storm Shadow we have already seen in the G.I. Joe line-up.

We have reached out to Cryptid Toys to find out more information on who is involved in the project and how their program will work. When we hear back from them, we will be glad to pass that information along. Until then enjoy the speculation and images for their upcoming 6-inch action figure line.

Custom Modern Era Gung Ho v2 Marine Dress Blues 01 Hisstank

I know I speak for many when I say that this custom Modern Era G.I.Joe Gung Ho v2 (Marine Dress Blues) is a figure that many of us would love to add to our G.I.Joe Collections. For now, we’ll have to live vicariously through the amazing custom shared on the Hisstank.com Custom Forums by Hisstank.com forum member Letal. The work on this custom is top notch, from the molded ribbons, rank patches, removable cover…the list goes on & on.

The original figure, released in 1987, was an instant fan favorite. Mr. Ron Rudat was kind enough to share his insight on Gung Ho v2 in a conversation that can be found over on the 3DJoes Gung Ho v2 Figure Profile Page.

Make sure to check out the interview, then join us after the break to check out more images of this amazing Gung Ho v2 figure!
