Joelanta 2015 March 13-15 Atlanta GA

Joelanta-Logo---Hisstank For more than a decade, JoeLanta has been an annual event bringing toy collectors and pop culture enthusiasts from across the country together in Atlanta to celebrate the joys of toys and friendship! Not only will you find vendors selling a variety of vintage and modern toys such as GI Joe, Barbie, Mego, Transformers, Star Wars, Super Powers, Masters of the Universe, a wide variety of 1:6 scale figures and accessories plus magazines, comic books & lunch boxes; but you’ll also have an opportunity to meet celebrities, see costumers and check out a variety of toy dioramas!

For those who want to get the full experience you may sign up for the Commanders Package to get involved in field tours and other events starting as early as Wednesday (check the Schedule of Eventsto see what is available). With theCommanders Package you’ll get early-bird access to the dealer room on both Saturday and Sunday, join the gang for the GI Joe parachute drop in the lobby, and participate in festivities including Team Toy Trivia, a festival of film shorts and a concert by the band Radio Cult

JoeLanta is different from most toy shows in several ways. First, JoeLanta is created and run by The Cody Lane Foundation; a non-profit organization whose goal is to create The Cody Lane Memorial Toy and Diorama Museum. All proceeds from JoeLanta go directly to The Cody Lane Foundation. Second, although JoeLanta assembles one of the largest numbers of toy vendors in the United States, it is much more than just a toy show. There are costumers, dioramas, events, and more. Third, JoeLanta is a welcoming group of friends who love toys and pop culture. They are excited about talking to friends, both new and old, about their interests and they truly love to share in their joys of toys!

Stop on by and see what all the fun is about! We’ll see you there!

JoeLanta is held at:

March 13-15, 2015
Marriott Century Center
2000 Century Blvd. NE
Atlanta, GA 30345

G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription Service 3.0 Status Update

GIJCC-FSS-3-Logo-Hisstank For those of you that are members of the G.I.Joe Collectors Club, an e-mail was sent out yesterday that provided an update on the status of the 3rd G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription Service. Here's the scoop -

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!

The FSS 3.0 is on the water headed this way. Because of the dock workers on the west coast issues and the seasonal delays, we don't think we will get them until the first week in January. Because of the delay, our current plan is to ship the first figures during the week of January 5 and follow up with the second shipment at the end of January to get us sort of back on track. This puts the second billing for the installment plan buyers around the end of January/first of February and the final billing around the middle of March. As soon as they arrive, we will set the official billing dates. I'm also sending this info from the club store email system so you may get 2 updates.

Merry Christmas!


Share your thoughts on this latest update after the break!

Modern Era Cobra Hydro Viper By Swizzlesticks

Modern-Era-Cobra-Hydro-Viper---Hisstank Check out this incredible Custom Modern Era Cobra Hydro-Viper created by forum member Swizzlesticks! The attention to detail here is absolutely amazing, down to the scale-like suit and highly-detailed air tank and Harpoon gun.

The Cobra Hydro Viper, aka the Demon of the Deep is Cobras Elite Underwater Trooper that have been selected from EELs who volunteer to be surgically enhanced to withstand the effects of deep sea diving. They have webs implanted between their fingers and fat injected in to their bodies to provide insulation.

This is an amazing update to a fan favorite troop builder! You should join us after the break to check out more pics and to share your comments!

Marauder Task Force Action Figure Prototype Figure Images!

Marauder-Task-Force-Prototype-Figure-01---Hisstank I know that it goes without saying that we're all eagerly awaiting the release of the Marauder Task Force Figures. forum member Chris L jokingly noted that our servers will probably crash from the Tsunami of collector joy that will flood the site...needless to say, I think he may be right!

Custom Modern Era Cobra Mega Marines Bio Viper by Tankster

Custom-Modern-Era-Mega-Marines-Cobra-Bio-Viper-Monstro-Viper---Hisstank 1993 introduced us to a rather unique addition to the G.I.Joe Universe - The Cobra Bio-Viper. Alongside the Cobra Monstro-Viper, these beasts were the reason the G.I.Joe Mega Marines came in to existence - To repel and destroy Cobra's Mega-Monsters!

From the evil labs of Dr. Mindbender come the hideous, genetically enhanced cobra Mega-Monsters. These soldiers are the toughest troops COBRA has ever come up with.

Although odd, there was something about the Mega Monsters that made them a lot of fun to play with. Thanks to forum member Tankster, we can now see what a Modern Era Cobra Bio-Viper may look like...and it's all sorts of Bad #*$.

Join us after the break to check out more images of this amazing Custom Mega-Monster!

KRE-O G.I. Joe Firebat Attack Set Available Once Again On!

KRE-O-GI-Joe-Firebat-Attack-Set---Hisstank Ever since the Black Friday and Kre-O Cyber Week Sales, Kre-O G.I.Joe offerings have been slim via the Toys'R'Us Website. Thanks to forum member 13thwarrior, we can confirm that one of the more sought after sets has found it's way back in to online inventory - the KRE-O G.I. Joe Firebat Attack Set!

If you don't have this set yet, well then you don't know what you're missing. The KRE-O G.I. Joe Firebat Attack Set, in my opinion, represents everything that is awesome about the Kre-O G.I.Joe line.

Build a firefight between the forces of Cobra and the commandos of G.I. Joe with the Firebat Attack set! You can build a missile-firing Cobra jet and a heavily armed G.I. Joe tank with the 292 pieces in this set. Put your Cobra Pilot Kreon at the controls and launch the jet's missiles at the tank while your Recondo KREON fires back with the anti-aircraft barrage! Will your Sergeant Katzenbogen Kreon take the Cobra jet down with his shoulder-mounted launcher? It's going to be a battle royale with the Firebat Attack set!

Guru Toyz Military & Secret Agent Action Figure Kickstarter

Guru Toyz Military & Secret Agent Action Figure Kickstarter

This is an action figure project that addresses the lack of detailed female action figures on the market today. “Wave 1” of the project is to produce female action figures with new paint schemes, updated designs, and whole new tooling; featuring over 12 or more points of articulation, interchangeable heads, and unique accessories. These female action figures will fit perfectly with all your modern era figures, and other 1:18 scale military toy lines. They will have attractive female features. At the same time, will have a distinguishable military tactical appearance. The figures will be designed for army building and customization! Initially we will produce four variations available as rewards for this project. “Wave 2“ of the project is to produce male army builder action figures that will be available as stretch goals.
