    What is different with this cancelled Hiss Scout than the one that got released?

    The local toyshop moved recently.
    Thought you guys might appreciate some of the stuff they have on display (and for sale).

    By cancelled I meant, released in Canada and then at Ollie's along with the POC Mech Cycle...

    It never really got an official US mass market retail release so it the same one....

    It’s weird to me how the original figures as a group have better human proportions than some of the anniversary figures.

    Back in the day, we used to get "Canada" and Canadian flag stickers to distinguish our vehicles from the American releases.

    I just think there's something inherently perverse about reducing "America's Movable Fighting Man" to an unarticulated statue...:p

    I saw the girls. They look pretty cool and I don't see anything overly risque that would send people into a tizzy. The only one I don't like much is Lady Jaye, she does just have a generic anime girl look.

    Besides Baroness has always been the chic sexy femme fatale/mistress of disguise type anyway. They gonna make Cover Girl and Jynx too? How much are they? I might pick up one for my boyfriend. He loves the Joe girls and he's been looking for a nice representation of Baroness and Scarlet.

    A tad pricey, which I kind of guess is just par for the course when it comes to statues.

    This just makes me miss when the 25th stuff was everywhere.

    Also reminds me how much I love the Cobra B.U.G.G. Such a fun vehicle.

    I don't know about their new site but on the old one they used some sort of client-side JavaScript to fill in the prices and it didn't work on older versions of Firefox.

    The HISS II needs to be brought back. Best HISS ever made IMO.

    Troop transport aspect was cool with II. I’m kind of into that POC Hiss tank, wish I was considerably younger when that came out.
