Custom Spaceport Playset By Empire - Update!

Empire-Custom-Spaceport---Hisstank You may remember the absolutely amazingly Custom Spaceport Playset Diorama that forum member Empire a couple of years back...but then again, how could any of us forget? It has always been an awe inspiring piece, causing many an hour to be lost just looking over all the nooks and crannies and living vicariously through the eyes of Empire's kids.

To quote forum member Short Bus Kustoms, Empire has moved the bar off of the moon and shot it across the galaxy, into another dimension. Now no one could ever hope to reach this level of awesomeness.

From Empire -

Well, it's been a long time since I posted an update to the Spaceport. All the ebay playsets and commission pieces have kept me stupid busy but I do occasionally try to squeeze in time to dabble with the "finished" city. I tore out all the original LED strand lighting and replaced it with probably 7 or 8 sets of LED Dioder lights from IKEA. These are perfect as they are plug in so no more replacing batteries and they are bright and super thin at .25". They actually look like a ceiling light fixture. The Blue Waffle Lounge now has flashing color changing lights to give it a more night club action feel to it. I also added additional wall panels/modules and landing platforms along with more drop towers to the ceiling of the actual room this beast is in. The playset is now officially part of the house. But when you walk into that corner of the room it really does feel like you have entered a miniature city.

And yeah, I'm still working on it....

Target Canada To Close All 133 Stores

No-Target-Logo---Hisstank Bad news for our friends in Canada - Word has been received through several media sources (including Fortune, quoted in this piece) that Target Canada has decided to close all of it's stores across the Country. In total, Target Canada employs roughly 17,000 people across 133 stores, this news will definitely come as a blow to Collectors and families alike.

Granted, Target Canada was known for not having what shoppers wanted in stock, or worse, having that stock and charging anywhere from 2% - 8% more than it's competitors. Besides all that, this means one less outlet for Canadians to purchase their favorite Modern Army Action Figure. The only positive here is that all Target Canada stores will of course liquidate their stock, saving a pretty penny for shoppers.

From Fortune -

The stores will remain open during the retailer’s liquidation process. As a result of the move, Target is expected to report about $5.4 billion of pre-tax losses on discontinued operations for the fourth quarter of 2014, driven primarily by write-downs for the company’s investment, along with costs associated with the exit from that market. Cash costs to discontinue the Canadian operations will be $500 million to $600 million, most of which will occur in the company’s fiscal 2015 or later.


You can share your thoughts on Target Canada's decision to shut down operations after the break.

G.I.Joe Honor Now Available On Kindle Worlds!

Bill-Nedrow-GI-Joe-Honor---Hisstank forum member and friend of the board, wedge1968 stopped by to share some great news with us! wedge, better known as Mr. Bill Nedrow, has just published G.I.Joe Honor, a follow up to his first title, G.I.Joe First Salvo.

Cobra has taken control of Sierra Gordo and Trucial Abysmia, but these countries are just the opening gambits in Cobra Commander's plans. Deep in the jungles of Sierra Muerte, General Colton has evidence that the terrorist organization's plans are more ambitious than anyone would suspect. Can he escape the agents who pursue him long enough to warn General Hawk and the G.I. Joe team?

Meanwhile, Snake Eyes has left the team to embark upon a mission of his own. In the U.S.S.R., Daina embarks on a similar journey across Europe. Their actions will forever change the lives of the men that they pursue.
Building on the action of G.I. Joe: First Salvo, G.I. Joe: Honor raises the stakes and expands the roster to include the '83 Joes, General Colton, Kwinn, Shadow Tracker, the Oktober Guard, the Dreadnoks, and more.

Make sure to check out G.I.Joe Honor and then join us after the break to share your thoughts on wedge's latest release!

DJ Caruso in Talks for Third G.I. Joe Film

2012_gi_joe_retaliationFB-570x297 By way of Mr. Albert Ching of Comic Book Resources comes word that D.J. Caruso, Director of films such as Eagle Eye and Disturbia is in talks to take over the next film in the franchise.

If this scenario does pan out, this'll be the 3rd Director on the title in as many films. As G.I.Joe 3 is slated for a release in 2016, we can only hope that something concrete is finally put in to place.

Albert jokes in the article of the possible inclusion of Shia LaBeouf in the film...Let's hope not, as I could just imagine if that were the case - as if millions of G.I.Joe Fans voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.

What are your thoughts on this latest development? Sound off after the break!

Custom Construx Cobra Terrordrome By Edgewise

Custom-Construx-Cobra-Terrordrome---Hisstank Check out this feat of engineering and imagination! forum member Edgewise created a true-to-form Cobra Terrordrome completely from Construx! In case you aren't familiar with the name, Construx were a construction style toy by Fisher-Price in the 80s. There was a TON of stuff that could be done with Construx and Edgewise has just proven that theory to be true yet again 30 years later.

From Edgewise -

It came out to be nearly the same dimensions as a real Terrordrome, though I hadn't planned that. The Firebat launch silo raises and lowers the Firebat by a winch/string, though the silo doors do not automatically open along with that. One the lower level of a real Terrordrome are 2 gun bays, and I've recreated those. There's a bay for the elevator handle and I've recreated that as a bay with the winch along with it being the 'powerplant' of the Terrordrome. There's also a stockade bay in this version. The real Terrordrome has one empty bay but in place of that I have a bay with a staircase leading to the top level. Finally the real Terrordrome has 3 vehicle bays/refueling stations. I've made 2 bays like that with a third bay being a multi-purpose bay for vehicle or troop storage.

There are over 40 images to feast your eyes on, so join us after the break to check'em out and to join the discussion already in progress!
