You know you want it...it's the POC HISS TANK V5!!
Impressive box art & assembly return to GI Joe!! It's huge & gimmicky, w/modular weapons & a sleek design. Not quite as cool as Resolute design imho but one of the better new vehicles we have gotten in forever, (I don't think I was this excited to open a vehicle box since the ARAH 1989 Phantom X-19 Stealth Fighter!!) I don't know if all the features live up to the hype, but this thing is mean & makes the original HISS look tiny by comparison... Driver comes w/pistol & backpack... I'll apply the labels over the weekend & get to a review/pics asap... but for now an early preview... Enjoy!!

Between the WolfHound & HISS Tank v5 getting early release, POC is getting off to a EXCELLENT START.

I couldn't figure out where to stick the sticker that goes in the rear cockpit (the one that looks like a control panel or whatever it is). Did you have the same issue? On the blueprints it shows it going on the ceiling but the ceiling isnt flat...

No problem. I just felt like it was a poor design or I was totally missing something.

I just put it in the middle but it looks terrible there. Wish there was a flat panel or something.

Wow. Looks a lot more larger than I thought compared to the old HISS.

That looks bigger than I expected. I like these pics. Thanks. How does it look beside of the Joe Rhino? That'll be what mine has to attack anyway when I get one.

Man, the girth of that thing next to the classic HISS. O_o

I'm starting to wonder if maybe I don't want another one in addition to the one I have pre-ordered.

This looks great. About the interchangeable weapons, what could fit on this vehicle?
