Metal Head is a walking anti-tank weapon! He can launch high-explosive rockets and guide them to their objectives on a laser beam, without the use of trigger devices. Instead, he uses a voice-activated weapons command system made up of circuits and targeting computer modules built into various components of his blast suit!
“I’ve got my eye on you-a Bull’s Eye that is!”

The G.I.Joe Convention Facebook Page has once again shared an image of a sculpt from the JoeCon 2015 Exclusive Springfield Island: Peril In Paradise (Tiger Force vs Iron Grenadiers) Box Set. This time around, we get to check out the head sculpt for Iron Grenadiers Metal-Head. It should come as no surprise that Boss Fight Studio is behind this fantastic piece of work.
You can share your thoughts on this and all things JoeCon 2015 after the break.
Over on Facebook, Mr. Erik Araña from Boss Fight Studio shared some information behind some of the figures that will make their way in to our collections from the G.I.Joe Collectors Club. You may or may not have already been aware of this information, but it deserves another share regardless!
It goes without saying that there are a few gems in this year’s JoeCon Exclusive Convention Set. It should also go without saying that our friends at Boss Fight Studio were involved in the process of making some of our favorites from the 2015 roster! From the JoeCon Convention Exclusives, to the GIJCC Incentive figure, Arctic Dr. Mindbender, to the yet to be revealed 13th figure from the GIJCC Figure Subscription Service, BFS’ craftsmanship shines through in each piece they’re involved with.
Here’s a breakdown of what our friends at Boss Fight Studio have worked on:
- Mr. Erik Araña did the control art for Tiger Force Sgt. Stalker, Iron Grenadiers General Mayhem and Arctic Dr. Mindbender.
- Mrs. Cartina Ceris-Araña worked on the Iron Grenadiers Iron Anvil.
- Mr. Andrew Franks worked on the Iron Greandiers Metal-Head figure.
- The entire BFS team worked on the builds as a group and Mr. Fred Aczon and Mr. Dave Proctor worked on the sculpts, bringing BFS’ vision in to reality.
On behalf of everyone here at HissTank.com, we’d like to thank our friends at Boss Fight Studio and congratulate them on some amazing pieces that we’re looking forward to adding to our collections!
