Alright I’m back from my mission at the H.I.S.S Tank Factory (Hasbro G.I. Joe Roundtable with the Cobra Team.) First off at the end of our roundtable the G.I. Joe Team Emily and Lenny (Cobra Team) wanted to thank everybody for making the H.I.S.S. Tank HasLab such a success and sending a huge statement about the brand! This was one of the best Hasbro round tables I have ever attended with excellent intel. I wish I had more relevant question time to get the fandom more info but look at the following awesomeness the G.I. Joe Brand as a whole is receiving.
Next unlock #2 goal will be posted up by the end of the day they are working on it right now.
No Toys at SDCC 2022 from Hasbro this year in-person. Everything this year will be preorder online or sold online and shipped to you directly. Sgt Slaughter will go up at SDCC for sale to the public.
The success of the HasLab has opened up the line to further projects and gives the G.I. Joe (Cobra) Team at Hasbro room to expand on both the main line and future HasLabs.
Ripper and All Brand New Firefly are the last two figure announcements.
G.I. JOE Classified Series Cobra HISS Tactician figure is one per order (if you order 5 you get 5) and Ron will be doing the art for that box only.
Hinted at a special numbering “crafty number” for the set. (my guess is 788 if that’s true you are extra awesome Emily and Lenny!)
You will not see this H.I.S.S. Tank again they will not reproduce it, that does not mean they will not eventually see other colors or variations in the future or a new design H.I.S.S. Tank
As of right now there are no plans for further goals beyond the #4. Will need to revisit once that goal is hit.
O-ring line still working on future info for the fans on how it will be handled.
Making sure HasLab’s are dream items, special items you can’t resist that are must have for HasLab’s. Needs of Collectors in-mind when they make the decision to move forward.
Adding texture to the H.I.S.S. Tank HasLab ladder.
H.I.S.S. Tank HasLab will be on Display at SDCC 2022.
Update 1: Second seat will NOT be a unlock goal. It was discussed and the Tank can only hold one figure even if the weapons rack turns out to be removeable (still in design not decided on yet if it will be removeable).
There were tons of G.I. Joe youtubers and site admins in attendance and I would like to thank them as well. Justin Bell (Generals Joes), Chris (Full Force Podcast), Scott, Action Figure Insider and a few people I did not know but It was a good time. Lastly Thanks to Hasbro and the G.I. Joe team and every one involved at Hasbro for the invite!
