NJCC Guest Announcement: Boss Fight Studio

newjerseycollectorscon-logo The New Jersey Collectors Convention is proud to announce that Boss Fight Studio will be attending the August 17th, 2014 NJCC toy show! Boss Fight is comprised of several former Hasbro designers and a sculptor who all worked on fan-favorite action figure lines like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars and Marvel Universe. Currently Boss Fight Studio's is working on their first Kick Starter for Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.?

What is Boss Fight Studio's and Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.?

Highly Articulated - We believe that action figures are meant to be played with. If it doesn't move, then it's a statue. That's why Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures are designed with poseability as a priority. Our 4" base figure features at least 17 points of articulation, all with an excellent range of motion.

Check out their Kick Starter that is now live!

One notable reveal was for Serpent O.R. from the DDP GI Joe VS Transformers series! The name is subject to change. The figure is a repaint of TakaraTomy's exclusive Generations Ratbat, which itself was a repaint of Generations Scourge with an all new head. Serpent O.R. will have mixed Decepticon/Cobra hybrid faction symbols printed on.

News of this comes our way from our sister site TFW2005. Stay tuned for more Botcon 2014 coverage as the weekend progresses!

JoeCon 2014 Convention Exclusive Kre-O G.I.Joe 7 Pack Images

Kre-O-GI-Joe-JoeCon-2014-Zombie-Initiative-38---Hisstank Starting last year, an exclusive set of Kre-O G.I.Joe figures has been offered by the G.I.Joe Collectors Club at the International G.I.Joe Collectors Convention. The Kre-O set has been based on it's 4" counterpart, with last year's set being based on the Nocturnal Fire exclusive set.

This year's set was based on the Zombie Initiative Exclusive set and included 7 Kre-O figures -
  • ECO Force Flint
  • ECO Force Clean Sweep
  • ECO Force Ozone
  • Joseph Colton
  • Toxo-Zombie/Toxo-Viper x3

The figures re-use parts already released across the Kre-O Universe, including Battleship and Transformers.

Of note is the fact that both the the "Toxo Figure" has a head that has been painted on both sides - One side reflects a red faceplate for the Toxo-Viper, the other side painted with a snarling Zombie Face.

The same was done with Clean Sweep, giving him a mean looking mug on one side and a visor painted on the other to coincide with his hazmat uniform. The best part to me is the cool weapons rack that Joe Colton comes with. Included with the weapons pack is Megatron!

You can check out more images of the set and share your thoughts with us here on the Hisstank.com forums after the break.
