Hasbro's G.I. Joe Brand Team of Emily and Lenny are holding their final live-stream for Yo-Joe June where the primary focus is expected to be the formal announcement for the G.I. Joe Classified Haslab H.I.S.S. Tank campaign which based on yesterday's leak looks to cost $300. I would expect the campaign to go live at some point today on the HasbroPulse website.
Whether there is anything else revealed today is unknown, but we will have full details for everything they show and tell us below.
The 19" long and 10" high HISS Tank Classified Project is now LIVE on HasbroPulse. It comes with the HISS Tank Drive Driver and needs 8k backers. There will be four unlockable tiers that they are not announcing today. the cost is $299.99.
- Multiple lighting combinations with Cobra Insignia Beacon
-Functioning wheels with moving treads: Rotating sprockets and wheels spin as the treads roll forward or backward.
-Elaborately-detailed command cockpit interior: The Cobra H.I.S.S. Driver Action Figure sits buckled with a 5-point harness adorned with Cobra logo before an illuminated control panel. You can pose the figure operating the articulated joystick and throttle controls while targeting Joe combatants.
“Gull-wing” Canopy: The vehicle comes with features “gull wing” functioning doors with independent right and left sides that lift from center hinges allowing the Driver to enter from either side of the H.I.S.S.
-Rear Cargo Bay: The rear personnel platform provides standing room for additional troops who can be posed holding the functional handrails. Below that is a retractable tow hitch on the rear of the vehicle. The center of the personnel platform flips up allowing the rear cargo door to drop. That reveals an illuminated troop transport cargo space. Inside is a jump seat and a weapon accessory storage rack.
-Articulated turret with poseable cannon accessories: The 360-degree rotating turret includes control details and fits an additional G.I. Joe Classified Series Action Figure (sold separately). The Double “Diablo” Cannon accessories can swivel and elevate independently from one another.
-Removable engine cover detail: Behind the cockpit sits the M.A.R.S.-developed HISS-CS22 propulsion unit detail beneath a removable cover. It connects to side exhaust port details.
-Removable armor plating skirt: The Cobra H.I.S.S. comes with a removable armor plating skirt detail with reactive armor to provide extra protection for the road wheels
-Extendable cockpit boarding ladders: Flip-down boarding ladders descend from each side of the H.I.S.S. granting the Driver easier access to the cockpit.
If they reach 8k units in 7 days from today (July 6, 11:59PM) they will throw in an early bird offering of an extra Classified figure. Cobra Hiss Technician based on Ron Rudat early designs of the driver who will also do the box art for the figure. Fans will get to vote on what color it iwill be if its unlocked.
The HISS Cannons will have holes on the turrets for blast effects.
Showing an update for the 3 3/4" Haslab Skystrike shipping later this year for those who backed it. They are showing an E1 painted model for it. So there will still be some changes.
