| Night Force Week by the team at Phoenix Customs marches on with Days 4 and 5! If you've been following the fun this week, then you're well aware of the amazing Night Force customs we've seen so far. Day 4 and 5 are certainly no different! Check it out - |
Day 4: Heavy Weapons
TEAM Heavy 2-Pack
Big firepower, big destruction and the big brains that know what to do with it! Team Heavy brings us new Night Force versions of Short Fuze and Barricade!
Day 5: Air Operations
Today brings us the Night Force Air Operations Team, comprised of the Night Force Night Tomahawk with Lift-Ticket and the Night Force Night Star with Blast Off!
When Night Force needs to get in - and out - of the twilight LZ in a hurry, Lift-Ticket and his new Night Hawk are the solution. When teamed up with Tracker's innate sense of strategy and direction, COBRA will never see - or know - what hit them!
There are Stealth Fighters...and then there's the Night Force Night Star. Able to launch in to high atmosphere and then drop down undetected on COBRA targets, this is one bird that no snake can see, hear or touch!
You can check out a full gallery of these amazing customs and catch up on the rest of Night Force week after the break!

Our friends over at 3DJoes are looking to get your feedback - Would you support a series of G.I.Joe art books? Check out the details below from 3DJoes - |
Please voice your opinion on the comments section. Here's my vision for the books:
Volume 1 1982-1994 Figures
Volume 1 would feature every carded figure from 1982-1994, as you can see on the 3DJoes Yearbook Page, but much ore polished like the recent 3DJoes Posters. It would also feature art for the mail aways like The Fridge. I envision the front of the page to be the full bleed carded figure and the back of the page featuring the file card, fan recollections of seeing the product on shelves, geared up images of the figures from my 360 spins and possibly pre-pro art. Here's an example of the level of digitial retouching that you'd see throughout the book.
Volume 2 1982-1994 Vehicles
Volume 2 would feature the front panel of every vehicle box full bleed on the front of each vehicle page. On the back I envision fan recollections of seeing product on shelves, images of the vehicles from my 360 spins and image galleries and possibly pre-pro art or blueprints. Here's an example of the level of digital retouching that you'd see through the book.
If those two volumes broke even, I could see making a 3rd volume. Volume 32 could feature other memorable art from the catalogs, magazines, posters, books, etc. I'll of course continue working towards this long term goal by photographing and digitally restoring the necessary images as I build 3DJoes.
So, do you want to see these books come to life? Voice your support so that I can share it with the powers that be!
You can sound off on the 3DJoes Facebook Page or here, on the Hisstank.com forums after the break!

It's already that time of the year! Time to put on your best G.I.Joe or COBRA themed costume and go raid the neighborhood for candy! This typically works better if you have a child of your own to bring with you. If not, you look like me - an overweight middle aged man dressed as Transformers Decepticon Soundwave mooching free snacks. |
Whatever your plans may be, we hope you have a great time and a safe one at that! Have you carved a cool design in to your pumpkin? Have an awesome costume that you want to share with us? Creating a Halloween themed custom? If you answered yes to any of the above, or just want to join in on the Halloween fun, join us after the break for spooky discussion already in progress!

Earlier this month, we brought you word that Eagle Force would be returning in Triumphant Fashion and shared the first image of Captain Eagle with you. |
Our friends behind the line have just updated the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page with a new image of the evil R.I.O.T. trooper and needless to say, he looks fantastic! Although just a drawing at this time, you can already tell how awesome this figure is going to be. The drawing shows a new removable hat that fits over the Troopers goggles, plus an ammo pouch that plugs in to the figures leg, not to mention his weapon of choice, of course!
Make sure to stay tuned to Eagle Force Returns for new developments on the line. We'll continue to share news with you as it becomes available.
What do you think of the new R.I.O.T. trooper? Sound off on the Hisstank.com forums!

I don't know about you, but I'm an absolute sucker for anything base on G.I.Joe vs Transformers Crossovers. What's not to love about two fan favorite properties facing off against one another? |
That's why my jaw always drops to the floor once Hisstank.com Moderator and Master Customizer Phantro shares his custom crossovers with us. This time around, Phantro tackles one of the latter year Transformers releases, HardHead! If you're not familiar with the Autobot Headmaster Soldier, check out what the TF Wiki has to say -
Hardhead is a soldier to his core. A soldier with a stubborn streak a megamile wide. He's stubborn to the point of rejecting outright any path but his own, any idea that goes against his natural instinct or inclination (namely fighting), and any advice he didn't come up with himself. He doesn't talk much, and when he does, it tends to be blunt and terse, if not outright rude. A soldier doesn't waste time on social niceties when there's a war to fight.
Perhaps surprisingly, given his limited social aptitude, Hardhead has found a good companion in Duros, his binary-bonded Nebulan partner, who enjoys warfare just as much as Hardhead does. The two mesh so well, it's been said that theirs may be the best match among all the Autobot-Nebulan teams.
The latest incarnation of Hardhead finds him taking on a new role as the Scorpion Tank for the G.I.Joe team. You'll want to join us after the break to read Phantro's take on his latest creation and to see more images of this amazing custom!

Earlier this month, our friend Dreamwalkeroso and the team at Gentle Giant stopped by to share images of their upcoming G.I.Joe A Real American Hero Jumbo Figure Release, Rock N Roll! Pre-Orders for this cool collectible are already live at site sponsor BigBadToyStore with an anticipated release date of Q4 2015. |
Now, we know that the first wave of figures will consist of -
- Rock N Roll (First scheduled release)
- Snake Eyes
Our question to you, Hisstank faithful, is this - Out of the remaining 4 figures, who do you want to see Gentle Giant release next? Sure, we can speculate on what we'll see in Wave 2, or what the Gentle Giant Exclusive figure will be, but we really want to know who you'd like to see make his 12" appearance after Rock N Roll.
Sound off after the break and make your voices heard!

The newly assembled team at Phoenix Customs have shared the first three days of their fantastic Custom Night Force Week! In case you missed the notice of this project posted earlier, I'll let OreoBuilder bring you up to speed - |
Remember Project 96? It was the original name for what morphed into GI Joe Resurgence. We won’t bore you guys with the details again (you can read about it here if you like: Oreobuilder's Blog: GI Joe: Resurgence Starts July 1st), but this sub-line was meant to be a part of the larger project. We picked Night Force because, in 1996, it would have made sense, from Hasbro’s perspective, to bring this theme back to support a more ‘’back-to-basics’’ approach. So, we set out to pick characters that could have been repainted at the time.
Now, let's take a look at the fantastic offerings posted up on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday!
Day 1: Team OG13 and the Night Shift Cycle w. Smokescreen
Not just the original Joes - But the best of the best, ready to take it to COBRA old school!
The first reveals in the project bring us amazing Night Force updates of Breaker, Stalker and Smokescreen, the Night Force Ram Driver.
Day 2: Emergency Response
These Joes are the best at what they do and what they do is Protect and Serve.
Day 2 brought us another pair of fantastic Night Force updates; This time comprised of G.I.Joe Intervention Specialist, Bullhorn and the G.I.Joe Fire Fighter, Barbecue.
Day 3: SEAL Operations
Prognatus Caligo Lumen is the motto of G.I.Joe's Night Force Night Ops team. Meaning "born to create blinding light," these Joes excel at making COBRA afraid of the dark!
Today's amazing assortment of Night Force Customs introduces us to the Night Force Night Raft with Tracker and the Night Force Night Devil with Shipwreck!
You can check out a full assortment of pictures and share your thoughts on these amazing customs after the break!
