Same here. I request payment update on pre-orders and within a day they changed it.
Already beat Hasbro to it.
Steve does quality work, his Rattler will be exceptional. Thanks to Transmasterc, i am buying his Hiss, Night Stinger, Wolverine, and Vamp MKII, and the Rattler.
Wow, those look great! The Wolverine is one of my favorite Joe vehicles.
Here’s the decals I used for the Hiss.

True, but in other places like the desert, forest or etc. Well that color scheme just screams, "Headshot...500!"
They’re supposed to be urban shock troopers, if they are being deployed in a forest or desert then someone messed up.
Thanks for the info, I will be getting a HISS, but in January, getting the Rattler first.
Also true. Because if Cobra wanted to capture Jason Voorhees and have these Alley Vipers deployed...yeah that's a death sentence.
Or Cobra Commander decided to try some new training/motivation techniques...
Sorry if this has been posted. Snake Eyes with Timber in stock and on sale.
I always anticipated having to repurpose my Outback custom when Hasbro eventually made him, just didn’t expect it so soon. And there is only one hero worthy enough to be a repaint of Outback…
That thunderstrike head is perfect proportions for that body. Did it need a lot of modding to fit?
Last SITREP for the Haslab Skystriker, should be a comparative photo set later this week:

Newest thing shown here is the independent functionality of the top and bottom airbrakes, which weren’t functional on the previous 2 versions(molded semi-up above, flush underneath). Also more emphasis on the split mechanisms for the wing sweep and landing gear as well as the blast effects for the missles. The internal detail areas exposed when the panels are removed above the glove area(forward of the wings) have separately molded pipes/wiring unlike the original(which just had raised wiring/pipes molded as part of the body).
Confirmation of the landing gear lever being used as the tailhook mount(pull back and the gear comes down). This I think, might also enable the hook to come down but that wasn’t shown. Emily from marketing mentioned how the Skystriker has a bunch of accessories to recreate a runway experience along the PIT.
Beneath the fuselage there’s 3 mounts for the stand. The stand is hollow from the back for storing some of the accessories. The central 1 is for the huge fuel tank which was labeled as a gunpod on the initial 1983 blueprints but was molded like the Tomcat fueltanks. This one comes with 2 smaller fuel tanks which accurately attach beneath the intakes, in addition to the giant fuel tank gunpod which can mount centerline if the stand isn’t used. Hoping some of the hardpoint adapters included can attach to the central stand mount to enable the carriage of Sparrow missles down the center. I’m surprised that the accurate Phoenix pallet arrangement wasn’t used for the fuselage hardpoints but that’s not a dealbreaker for me. Does look like Ace and Wayne sit high up on their seats compared to the 1983 version, so I’m having even more doubts that this can seat 2 modern Joe’s inside without modification(maybe removal of the parachute cover/RIO cockpit panel from behind the pilot’s seat).
Emily brought out the 90’s Destro too.
None at all.
wow...Gung Ho body? I may need to really look into that when they restock him with Alley Viper and Bat.
The tow hook for the retractable landing gear on the Skystriker is kinda cool.
Yup. Fits like a charm.
Good to know. I just ordered a Muldoon amber collection for obvious hat to go on my spare Duke or Flint body. Need some sculpting tools and some green stuff. And better paint.
Love these Lego designs...
Anyone else have a Kreo/Lego collection of Joes still?
