I was just wondering, Rip-It is considered an individual character, right? and the Hiss Driver is an army builder. So why is Hasbro releaseing Rip-It with the Black Hiss this summer. Shouldn't have they released Rip-It carded and Hiss Driver with the Hiss. I know many of you will be army building the Hiss Tanks, but what are you gonna do with all the Rip-Its? Is he gonna pilot the (black) Hiss or the Target exclusive? Will he be manning the turrets? Just wanted to hear your opinion.

I think you just answered your question Many of us will flock to get the red HISS Driver, but there are many people who would rather not have Rip-It, but they'll also flock to get a Black Hiss. So if Hasbro can make a little extra money by packaging certain figures as singles instead of with the vehicles they originally came with, they'll do it.
Personally, I like Rip-It better (Probably because I like blue)

I think they gave that trooper with the Target tank so that you can buy Hiss Drivers when they came carded so that you can have a drive and the trooper at the guns......I have no explanation for the Rip-It thing though.
Personally, I've never liked the Hiss Driver....so I'm going to Army build the Rip-Its instead and use them as Hiss drivers of the Target Hisses since the clothes match the blue hiss...and I'll put the camo trooper in the black Hiss tank, again because the uniform matches the black tank.

I'll us the Rip-It figures as HISS Drivers of a different division. I like the Convention Rip-It better. When he first came out I used one of the Bronze Bombers that used the Nitro Viper body in red with black details and new head.
But I've since thought about him in another role and against Devil's Due I think Rip-it made it to the Plauge.

I'm gonna reverse them and make the Red one Rip-it and the Blue ones be the Hiss Driver so I can get more Vipers...

I'm not going to let Rip-it drive any of my HISS tanks. The HISS Drivers will pilot the Target version, the re-released HISS that came with the original Rip-it, and the new wide release version. Rip-it will be manning the cannons.
Speaking of the character, how much difference is there between the original figure, and the 2007 Convention Exclusive. I have both, but lately have been wondering why I need the new one.

I'd prefer to display one Rip-It and many red Hiss Drivers, but since I'll probably have several Rip-Its I will most likely use both. I'm thinking now that the red drivers will be in the black tanks and the blue ones will be in the blue Target exclusives.
Right now I have black cobra commanders with air trooper heads manning the cannons. I'm not sure if I'll keep it that way.

On the other hand, being that they're toys... I'll probably play around with them more than stick to any hard and fast rule. ;)
Currently army-building Timber (any/all 1:18 versions). SE/packaging not necessary. PM offers.

I think I will have them be on seperate teams.
or VS each other Red Vs. Blue the 'Crips VS. The Bloods'.
I wonder if I can pose Rip it and make him C-Walk?
