Visionaries Knights Of The Magical Light Collectors Guide Kickstarter Campaign

Visionaries-Logo---Hisstank ***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!

Happy Veterans Day from Hisstank.com

Veterans-Day---Hisstank We'd like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you that has served, will serve, or supports someone who does. It's thanks to your sacrifices that we have the freedom to enjoy the simple things in life, like toys.

I'd like to quote a speech from former President Ronald Reagan, given at a Veterans Day Ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in 1988 -

PRESIDENT REAGAN: Those who live today remember those who do not. Those who know freedom remember today those who gave up life for freedom.

Today, in honor of the dead, we conduct ceremonies. We lay wreaths. We speak words of tribute. And in our memories, in our hearts, we hold them close to us still. Yet we also know, even as their families knew when they last looked upon them, that they can never be fully ours again, that they belong now to God and to that for which they so selflessly made a final and eternal act of devotion.

We could not forget them. Even if they were not our own, we could not forget them. For all time, they are what we can only aspire to be: giving, unselfish, the epitome of human love -- to lay down one's life so that others might live.

We think on their lives. We think on their final moments. In our mind's eye, we see young Americans in a European forest or on an Asian island or at sea or in aerial combat.

And as life expired, we know that those who could had last thoughts of us and of their love for us. As they thought of us then, so, too, we think of them now, with love, with devotion, and with faith: the certainty that what they died for was worthy of their sacrifice -- faith, too, in God and in the Nation that has pledged itself to His work and to the dream of human freedom, and a nation, too, that today and always pledges itself to their eternal memory.

Thank you. God bless you.

JoeCon 2015 - What Will The Convention Exclusive Set Be?

GI-Joe-Convention-2015-Logo---Hisstank Springfield - A nice little town like ours

The stage is now set - As you know, the 2015 G.I.Joe Convention is being held in Springfield, IL. Since the time the news of the location was released by the G.I.Joe Club, Hisstank.com forum members have begun to speculate as to what the upcoming Convention Exclusive set may be.

The Club promised a hint in an upcoming comic issue this December, but until then, let's get to speculating! Some have wondered if the location being Springfield will somehow tie in to the set, focusing on Cobra's secret town headquarters and finally bringing us characters like Billy. Others think that the set will focus on a subgroup - Sky Patrol, Tiger Force, etc.

Do you plan on picking up the 2015 G.I.Joe Convention Exclusive Box Set? If so, what do you think it'll include? Sound off on the Hisstank.com Forums!

G.I.Joe Kids Meals At Burger King In Europe

Burger-King-GI-Joe-Kids-Club-Meal---Hisstank In a bit of...uh, what? news, a new promotional tie in for G.I.Joe is being introduced at Burger King Locations in Europe. So far, the countries confirmed to be offering the media tie in are Spain, Germany and Norway. Strawberry Shortcake offerings are also part of the promotion.

The toys include what appears to be a SHARC with pilot, a Jeep (AWE Striker?) with Driver and H.I.S.S. Tank with driver. The Kids Meal box has Duke on the side. Odd that G.I.Joe is seeing a marketing push in Europe while no sort of promotional tie in has been seen in North America for some time now. Check the video out here -
