IDW Press Release - The World Will Always Need GI Joe

IDW-The-Fall-Of-GI-Joe
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!

G.I.Joe Battleground Capture Event - Long Live Cobra Commander Now Live!

Long-Live-Cobra-Commander---Hisstank Inside WarSim, the storm breaks.

Unbeknown to the Joes, Cobra’s contest has ended, and their Council has chosen a new Commander. Under Krake's rule, Cobra unmasks themselves to the public and launch a full assault on the country of Nanzhao, seemingly overthrowing a harsh dictatorship and destroying one of the world’s strongest suppliers of illicit substances. There is no altruism in Cobra, however, and G.I. JOE can smell the deceit.

The Joes, battered after their losses in Springfield, the Pit, and elsewhere, deploy en masse with their remaining strength to Nanzhao to fight their oldest enemy, but can even Fast Draw, Falcon, Super Trooper, and Shockwave be enough to combat a frustrated Arashikage archer, hungry for a show-down with his former sword-brother? How many more Joes will have to fall? Do WarSim's predictions spell doom for the Joes, and the global freedom they protect?

Find out what happens when vipers everywhere proclaim "Long Live Cobra Commander!" in today's exciting capture event, on now!

3D Printing Tutorials By Phantro Now Available!

Screen-Shot-2014-08-26-at-114102-AM Now that 3D printing is becoming more common place, it's amazing to see what kind of artwork is being made with these awesome printing devices! From custom pieces for G.I.Joe and Transformers toys, to much more complex offerings on an industrial scale, it's safe to say that 3D printing is here to stay.

3D printing or additive manufacturing (AM) is any of various processes for making a three-dimensional object of almost any shape from a 3D model or other electronic data source primarily through additive processes in which successive layers of material are laid down under computer control. A 3D printer is a type of industrial robot.

Even the "big boys" are embracing this new technology, as noted last month when we made you aware of Hasbros collaboration with Shapeways in order to sell 3D printed artwork. Ever wish you could try this out yourself, but have been worried about the results? Well don't worry, as Hisstank.com Moderator and Customizer Extraordinaire Phantro has you covered!

Phantro has put together a series of 3D tutorials that are sure to help launch your 3D printing dreams in to reality! Here's a breakdown of the series -

3D Printing Lesson 0 - Software Selection and use
3D Printing Lessons 1 and 2 - Zooming Tools and Orbiting Tools
3D Printing Lessons 3 and 4 - Camera Pans and Angles and Creating a Printable Model
3D Printing Lesson 5 - The importance of Closed or "Water tight" models.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out the tutorials, then join us after the break to share your questions and/or comments with Phantro himself!

Josh Feldman Joins Hasbro Studios For G. I. Joe III

Josh-Feldman-Hasbro-Studios-Transformers Hasbro Studios scored a major win today by bringing in Josh Feldman to the team for a new position titled head of development of the company's film and TV division.

This is big news on major entertainment news websites since Mr. Feldman is known throughout the industry for his work on movies such as the current X-Men movies.

He is said to work for the next G. I. Joe Live Action Movie.

"With his tremendous experience in brand-focused film storytelling, Josh is ideally suited for this role as we look to expand our feature business," which includes a third 'G.I. Joe' film, says Stephen Davis; president of Hasbro Studios and global entertainment and licensing for Hasbro. "His focus will be on both our franchise and new brands in live-action and animation, and Josh will work closely with the studio’s TV development, brand, design, digital and licensing teams to deliver full storytelling integration across our brand blueprint."

New Hasbro Trademark Revealed - Micro Machines

G-I-Joe-vs-Cobra-Micro-Machines-Hasbro-Galoob As a practice, we at HISSTANK are always keeping our eyes on United States Patent And Trademark Office. Why? Because Hasbro always apply for new Trademarks prior to the production/release of their products. The news we are about to tell you is indirectly linked to the G. I. Joe Franchise. Yes, Hasbro has applied for a new Trademark few days ago titled "Micro Machines".

Back in 1998 Hasbro acquired Galoob Toys and with it acquired the rights to manufacture and distribute their famous toyline Micro Machines; tiny toy vehicles and playsets. Sure enough, the first thing Hasbro did was to release a subline titled "G.I.Joe vs. Cobra Micro Machines" in 1999.

So, the question of the hour is… "Will we see G. I. Joe Micro Machines once again?" Hopes are high since Hasbro did eventually gave a Kre-O treatment for G. I. Joe brand as well. Since Hasbro has manufactured every single Trademark they have applied recently, we are sure to see Micro Machines returning and with it [hopefully] G. I. Joe.
