|Welcome to our newest member, Jarvis || |
A few days ago our friends at Marauder "Gun-Runners" posted an update on their Facebook Page showcasing the Marauder Task Force Plastic Color Prototypes! Check out the latest from marauder_john himself - |
Here is the first group shot of the Marauder Task Force plastic color prototypes! Still have some slight fit/function adjustments and color corrections (especially the red tone on the Command-Ops figure) to get done, but they are looking more like a team. Will post more images of each figure ASAP, but wanted to get an image posted as soon as possible. Once those changes are complete, we'll get samples of the production figures WITH their final paint design decorations applied (how the figures will appear when released). Hope you like them so far! MJ
TR1ER also posted up a gray repaint in darker final colors that is all sorts of killer! You can check it out and join in on the discussion already in progress after the break.

At most, if not all Conventions, exclusives are offered to those in attendance. It's a great way to promote, market and showcase a specific item or brand offering. |
That said, Exclusives can sometimes be very frustrating for Collectors as Convention Exclusive items aren't always available to General Public. This wouldn't necessarily be a big deal, but most of the time the aforementioned exclusive offering is something that would be better fit for retail release.
Thankfully, our friends behind the Acid Rain World have executed a perfect Convention Exclusive offering - A unique piece that doesn't take away from the main line while offering something fun to pick up while at a show...and what a fun offering it is.
Check out the "Little Green Army Men" style Agurts Infantry Trooper that will be offered on the Con Circuit. The attached images come courtesy of the Acid Rain Facebook Group. The final product may differ a bit from what's shown, but still how, cool are these?! The Tag Line for these exclusives is perfect -
Time has changed, so do toys, but not our hearts - always young. - Kit Lau
Don't forget, you can pick up your own Agurts Infantry Trooper at BBTS.

Thanks to HISSTANK.com boards member Dusty79 for posting up his G.I. Joe Combat Cruiser converted Into a Custom Cobra Stinger! We could onle wish to see a better version to hit retail. |
"Converted a vintage missile rack to fit in the existing turret, as well as adding armor to the front using styrene and the armor from the ROC Steel Crusher. The metal grating in the windows is made from the hangers that Hanes socks come on. The wheels were cut axel and all from a Bruder Jeep and made to fit. The 50 cal gun on top is a cast. Drones were added to the back and made to be removable to add play value."

Hasbro has applied for a G. I. Joe related Trademark after more than two years. Following the G. I. Joe: Retaliation trademark (January 2012), the new trademark titled Scarlett (Trademark ID: 86372928), is filed under Toy Action Figures at the United Stated Patent And Trademark Office on 21st August, 2014. |
Upon seeing the new trademark, we at Hiss Tank investigated whether this is a renewal of the said trademark and found out that the old trademark is still live and belongs to Hasbro.
It's a known fact that Hasbro applies for these trademarks when they require manufacturing toys based on the trademarks. The most recent examples being entertainment trademarks Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Transformers: Robots In Disguise, G. I. Joe: Retaliation, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls and Rainbow Rocks, Jem And The Holograms and character trademarks of Airachnid, Strongarm, Windblade and characters of the upcoming Jem Movie.
Character trademark Airachnid was filed 2 years prior to the reveal of Transformers: Prime cartoon series, but take this new info regarding Scarlett with a grain of salt until the existence of a new G. I. Joe Animated Series is proved.
Tankers may remember that we revealed the title of G. I. Joe: Renegades also with the help from United Stated Patent And Trademark Office.

The World Will Always Need G.I. Joe
Karen Traviss Leads A Bold New Series
San Diego, CA (August 27, 2014) – Acclaimed British military science-fiction author Karen Traviss reignites the G.I. JOE franchise with an all-new series. Filled with the kind of gritty realism fans of the author have come to expect, this new take on G.I. JOE is guaranteed to please followers of the classic property and comic readers experiencing it for the first time.
The world has changed and so must G.I. JOE—lead by Scarlett, the once-revered G.I. JOE team faces an unthinkable reality where Cobra has become an unlikely peacekeeping taskforce. Utilizing real-world dangers and politics, this is a G.I. JOE comic the likes of which has never been seen.
“Karen understands the world of men and women in the military,” says IDW Senior Editor John Barber. “She gets what their reality is like—which is why she’s held in such high regard by veterans, as well as fans of character-driven action.
Traviss guides an all-star squad of talent on this monthly series starting with fan-favorite artist Steve Kurth on interior art. With a keen eye for design, Jeffery Veregge provides striking covers to the series. The first issue will feature a subscription variant cover by Cliff Chiang.
"When John [Barber] asked me to write the series, it was one of those spooky coincidences,” said Traviss. “I'd literally just finished writing a scene for my new novel, GOING GREY, where two of the characters – vets now serving as private military contractors – discuss whether having G.I. Joe and Action Man as boys, influenced their choice of career. G.I. Joe is still that iconic after 50 years, because it's about people, and it's never shied away from the human reality of warfare. I'm genuinely delighted to have the chance to work on the franchise."
Look for this new series to infiltrate comic shops this September, and follow IDW Publishing on facebook.com/idwpublishing and @idwpublishing for more news and updates!
