The HISS II is a sweet tank, but I think if the color had been black w/ a red shield, it would have been more well received. The future blue / red scheme just didn't pan out, but had a mad cool driver..
Where the HISS II customs at??
DTC Hiss is a really, really tight fit for any 25th figs.. I can get 4 of the blue (color doesn't matter, but they look cooler) VvV NightCreeper's in the back w. a 25th Night Op's Cobra Soldier at the gunner station, Nightcreeper driver that comes w. it used as a leader in the back sitting on the back ledge in the carrier (makes 5), and a 25th Hiss Tank driver running the cockpit.
Makes a clean 7 fig transport, and the VvV Nightcreeper's have so much articulation and movement they are spot-on 25th sans torso for detail / joints. They bend more, and I think that is the trick, since the 25th's / ROC's can't really sit properly most of the time.
It's a rad tank, like how the guns on the front chin come off and double as machine guns for troops, and how the thing is freakin' loaded w. 8 missiles. It's a combat ready disaster for joes not expecting that monster.

Had to say the DTC HISS. Adding a couple guns under the cockpit was a vital improvement, how many HISS I & II probably got taken out by someone with a bazooka kneeling right in front of it? Pity we never got a repaint with different (non-launching) guns on the turret.
The HISS II came close, but the screwy turret gun's "half moon" barrels and the gun lifting completely from behind the gunner hurt it. The only issue on colors I had was the red weapons looked tacky.

As much as I like the original HISS I love the Hiss 2 a little more.With the troop compartment and the 2 person cockpit.If Hasbro redoes it(I know wish thinking)paint it all black with a clear or tinted windshield.None of this translusent red windsheild.

Which hisstank reigns supreme? This one! But in regards to the vehicles: the chrome canada convention one, no doubt!

Voted for the DTC Hiss cause it's just so cool but I gotta say the Resolute Hiss is still the best one I've ever seen.

By the time I found a thread telling if it was $25 compatible and if the launchers came off, it was finally gone. I had never seen or heard of it, so it would have been fun to get. Drat!
I reallly like the accessories and molded headlights on the Arctic HISS as well as the extra number stickers. I appreciate the extra effort put into it, as well as the great driver.

Gotta go OG with this one. The DTC is nice, but it just doesn't have those classic lines...
The new Arctic HISS is great too. I'd like to see more repaints with that kind of thought put into it, not just a repaint for the sake of it.
And for all of you who voted the black HISS reissue for the 25th line... REALLY?!
First off, it's just the original with smaller pegs, and as much as I like the original, of all vintage vehicles that could have used a retool/remold, it was the HISS. I mean, the tracks are just one big molded block of plastic!!!
I would have happily seen the VAMP or Skyhawk stay as they were if they had put the extra tooling effort into the HISS instead. It was a pretty cheap cop-out for a line that was supposed to be an improvement over the vintage toys.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!
