| ***UPDATE*** |
To those that have been following this auction, there's good news to share! The Seller has been in touch with 3DJoes and realized the error in the listing description. It has since been updated to reflect accurate information.
Thanks go to the seller for doing the right thing and again to 3DJoes for the initial warning!
Our good friend 3DJoes stopped by to warn us of a fraudulent listing currently found on eBay. The listing is for a 1982 Sears Exclusive G.I.Joe Cobra Missile Command Headquarters. Since many are looking at vintage pieces now that the modern era line is slowing down, we wanted to make sure you're aware of this so that you don't end up getting burned. Here's the scoop from 3DJ -
Hey Joe Bros. Please beware of this fraudulent item on eBay. They copied and pasted the description from my previous auction.
G I Joe Cobra Missile Command Headquarters 1982 Sears Exclusive Figures Mint | eBay
I have written the seller and asked them to change the description to more accurately reflect the item they are selling. I will report it to eBay tomorrow it it is not updated.
Here's where their set falls short of the description:
- figures aren't graded
- Cobra Commander isn't the very first, very rare, "Mickey Mouse" version with the original logo, instead its a swivel arm 1983 figure
- no blueprint
- no sliding bottom AFA case
They are vastly overselling their item by using my description. Finally they are not selling their item to help fund 3DJoes. I don't know them from Adam.
It is in your best interest to avoid this item like the plague. Thanks again to 3DJoes for warning the Community!

The Official Transformers Collectors Club revealed the final color sample for their G.I.Joe/Transformers Crossover Serpent O.R. figure today and in this reporters humble opinion, it's FANTASTIC! |
For those of you that are unfamiliar with the character, Serpent O.R. (Organic Robot) is a humanoid bio mechanical construct from the Generation One continuity. He is also called Serpentor. Serpent O.R. was created in secret by a rogue group in the U.S. Military using captured Decepticon technology, including the remains of Megatron. Here are the details straight from the Club -
A very interesting figure that has appeal to fans of both Transformers and G.I. Joe, this character is a mix of the greatest military minds from throughout human history meshed with Cybertronian technology - Serpent O.R.! As a reminder, the order period will be open through October 2nd, 2014.
You'll need to be a part of the subscription service (and in that respect, a member of the Club) in order to obtain this figure, a single pre-orders across many online vendors have already sold out! You can check out more details here - Transformers Club Website
Are you planning on adding this cool cross over to your collection? Sound off on the Hisstank.com Forums!

Deadline is reporting that The Hub, a joint venture with Discovery Networks and Hasbro, is no more. The channel will be re-branded in "Discovery: XYZ" fashion, most likely Discovery Family. They will also be taking a larger stake of the channel by acquiring Hasbro shares. Hasbro will retain some interest and continue to provide programming from 9 AM - 3 PM, so we should still see Transformers and other programming on the station. Whether or not they will also get prime time slots for first run episodes, not mentioned here. Check the full details over at Deadline and discuss on the forums!

Sad news to report today as Buster Jones, the voice actor known to G.I.Joe fans for his roles as Doc and Zap, has passed away at the age of 71. This news comes way via Noblemania. Buster Jones was also known for his work as Black Vulcan on Transformers Generation One as Blaster, Superfriends and Winston Zeddemore on The Real Ghostbusters. Some fans were fortunate enough to meet Buster Jones at BotCon 2012 where he shared some of Blaster's most memorable lines with hundreds of Transformers fans. |
Your contribution to this franchise will always be remembered. Rest in peace Buster Jones.

Thanks to HISSTANK.com boards member Whargoul44 for posting up his create a con Joecon Tiger Force vs Cobra Jungle Force Project! |
"In the spirit of past custom group projects across the internets, I took on a "Create a Joecon Set" project. I've tried my best to duplicate the typical Joecon exclusive offerings; Boxed Set, Free Attending Toy, Two Pack, Three Pack, etc. As my first few figures were Tiger Force, I went with a TF vs Cobra Jungle Force set and in keeping with the Collector's Club practices"
Check out all the G.I. Joe Tiger Force and Jungle Force custom images after the jump.
