Check out this cool custom Cobra S.N.A.K.E. Armor by Hisstank.com forum member devildawg! He's provided an official press release drafted and released by COBRA and M.A.R.S. Industries. Check it out - |
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Decades ago Cobra Commander dominated the battlefield with his S.N.A.K.E Armor. Destro convinced him to abandon the idea of man in machines and introduced him to the B.A.T. The BATs continually disappointed the Commander so when Justin Hammer was arrested for treason Cobra Commander used this opportunity to seize a Hammer drone and outfit it as the new.....Cobra S.N.A.K.E Armor (prototype).
The new S.N.A.K.E Armor is outfitted with a mini gun, mech blade, mini rocket launcher and a flame thrower. It has a propulsion system capable of short flights and has solar panels on the hood to back up power and life support systems. It is common called the "Silver Serpent" by the cobra troops. M.A.R.S Industries is set to have these in full production by 01/2015.

Over on Movie Pilot, Mr. Kit Simpson Browne has posted up a fun read that can actually serve as an interesting history lesson for those that are unfamiliar with the rich history of the G.I.Joe Universe. |
In the article, Kit asks the question "Was G.I.Joe supposed to be in the Marvel Universe?" A great question to ask, seeing as how the ARAH series of comic books was indeed brought to life by Marvel during the 80s. Here's a bit of info from the article -
You might even stop for a second and remember the awesome comic-book series from the '80s and early '90s, written by Larry Hama, and published by Marvel comics. Because, y'know, it was awesome.
What you probably don't sit and think about, though, is just how different the G.I. Joe series almost was, and how its modern origins, way back in 1982, almost changed the modern movie-going landscape as we know it.
The article goes on to discuss Nick Fury, his son and their role in Fury Force, the original concept created by the godfather of G.I.Joe, Larry Hama. It's great read and you should definitely check it out! Once you've given it a read, join us after the break to share your thoughts on whether you think G.I.Joe should be included in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Consider this a rumor until confirmation is received, but with that said, Screen Rant has posted up a rather interesting article pertaining to G.I.Joe 3. It appears as though Martin Campbell is in talks to direct the 3rd installment. With movies like Golden Eye, Zorro and Casino Royale under his belt, this will hopefully mean great things for the franchise. Here's a bit of the article - |
With films like Goldeneye, Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness under his belt, it’s clear that Campbell can do darker action/espionage thriller material with a confident hand. On the other side of that filmography, films like Green Lantern and the two Zorro movies suggest that Campbell isn’t nearly as strong with pulpier hero material. The question for G.I. Joe 3 then, is which side of Martin Campbell are the producers most interested in?
What would be interesting to see is how much (or little) Campbell embraces the ninja/mysticism elements of the G.I. Joe franchise. The story of Snake Eyes, his rival Storm Shadow and their ninja sect has arguably been the best part of the G.I. Joe movies; but how much of a fit would all that be in a truly grounded, thriller-type action film?
So what say you, Hisstank Faithful? Good news or another reason to pull your hair out? Share your thoughts with us after the break!

| ***UPDATE*** |
Great news for those that have been following the Visionaries Knights Of The Magical Light Collectors Guide Kickstarter - The project has been fully funded and any funds received will help fill out the book with additional material! Join us after the break for some new details from OverkillWipeout, the creator of the project!
1987 was an amazing year - The line brought us most of the line up from the G.I.Joe A Real American Hero animated movie and a massive playset in the form G.I.Joe Defiant Space Shuttle Complex. Hasbro had more up it's sleeve for the boys segment that year, introducing us to what has always been a personal favorite line of mine, the Visionaries: Knights Of The Magical Light.
Visionaries told a story of society where technology/Electronics have failed and they, the people of Prysmos, have had to return to the old ways of Magic. This pits two groups of Knights - the Heroic Spectral Knights against the evil Darkling Lords. The line also had direct media tie ins in the forms of a 30 minute cartoon and a comic.
Visionaries also had it's own gimmick: Heavy use of holograms, used to portray that characters magic abilities. The figures, being made by Hasbro, had very similar articulation to our beloved G.I.Joe figures. The line was amazing and thanks to Hisstank.com forum member OverkillWipeout, there's now a Collectors Guide Kickstarter Campaign in the works that will capture this short lived, but highly appreciated line of Figures, Vehicles and accessories.
What will the guide cover?
This Kickstarter projects aim is to produce a printed collector’s guide, a reference book for the toy line depicting the figures, vehicles and accessories that saw release, their incorporated play/action features and card back character information (5th Nov. update) as well as include details and images of the unreleased 1988 line thanks to community contributions.
The publication will be a 56-page (subject to change) 195 x 135 mm full-color paperback perfect bound book, printed on uncoated recycled stock and featuring a two color blinding florescent front and back cover!
The team behind the Guide have already received permission of use from Hasbro to produce the publication based upon the license. They have also brought on Mr. Bob Hall, whose previous work you may be familiar with from both Marvel and DC comics as well as Valiant/Acclaim. Mr. Hall has been commissioned to produce some snazzy cover art.
You can check out more details of the Kickstarter, and share any questions you may have after the break!

Check out this super cool Custom 12" Cobra Shock Trooper that was shared on the Official Hisstank.com Facebook Page by Hisstank.com forum member SharkyRivethead! This piece is beyond awesome and does a great job of resembling it's 4" counterpart! Here's the scoop from Sharky himself - |
Hey everyone, it's SharkyRivethead here. Sorry, haven't contributed much lately. I'm still working on my At At. But! In the meantime. I did decide to give a try at 12" modding. This here is my Cobra Shock Trooper. I really tried to heed as much attention to detail. I even managed to find an oversized spaz 12. Almost all the packs and clothing were bought individually and as close to what I saw. I did embellish on the vest. I went with all black. Trying to find everything in that bluish hue was proving impossible.
The doll is a 21st Century toys Parton doll. (Who knew Patton was moonlighting ) I have an M4, MP5K, a sledgehammer and glok17 for a side arm. I will scratch build a riot shield for him. In any case, enjoy!
What are your thoughts on this cool 12" custom? Sound off after the break!
