    Too bad they didn't increase the price by $20 and include 4 more BATs.

    Hasbro has just posted up new images of the upcoming GIJOE SDCC Exclusive ShockWave H.I.S.S. Tank. The new box sports old school Marvel style comic book art to match last years SkyScream with Cobra Commander.

    SDCC 2012 Images include:
    SDCC 2012 H.I.S.S. Tank Box
    Devastator B.A.T.
    Decepticon Destro
    Shockwave H.I.S.S. Tank


    Uhhh Skyscream?

    I wonder if they'll eventually do a Classic H.I.S.S. in Prime colors

    It's cool but nowhere near as exciting as last year's Starscream/Cobra Commander combo.

    Good luck with that. Last year I almost had Starscream, had him in my cart. With HTS going up and down last year though I lost out.

    Should have come with a Techno Viper instead of the BAT.

    I agree. Last year's combo was kinda a no brainer. This one fells a bit more forced. I still love the retro Comic cover box art tho.

    They really need to consider a two-pronged approach to this. Each year, they should do a Joe vehicle with figure AND a TF with figure. For example, imagine "Old Snake" with a Cobra Rattler deco'd Universe Powerglide. It's an easy story to cook up. Following the events of "Only Human," Old Snake outfits a Cobra Rattler with copied TF tech that he stole while UM, RP, Arcee, and Springer were disembodied. Replace Powerglide's head with a Cobra Commander head and presto, you've got a powerful robot controlled by the Commander that is capable of turning into a plane.

    All these offerings do is make me lament the stupidity of the StarWars/Marvel Crossovers and wish someone would wake the fuck up and do proper Tf/GI Joe crossovers.

    wasn't it one per-person on the Skystriker last year? Why would it be any different this year?

    Still, Starscream last year lasted all of 5 minutes online before being sold out. Hopefully Hasbro is pumping more of these out.

    Like others said, this isn't as important to get as Starscream was. But I'd still like to have it if I can.

    I feel like pulling my hair out when I wander why Hasbro won't try a proper G.I.Joe/Transformers Crossover. Delux scaled Joe vehicles with Classic Transformers not olds could sell. Why not one more random continuity for our shelves right;) 
    Anyway that shockwave barle on the top of the tank looks perfect. Sells the concept perfectly. I hope they keep doing these. I can't possibly fit these things into my collection but I love seeing the finished products.

    This is probably a foolish question considering the obvious high demand and competition to get these, but when exactly after SDCC would HTS put them online? (I.e., when is this five minute window of opportunity?)



    (Why do I have the feeling that all I am inviting is misinformation?)
