The Transformers Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service Serpent OR Final Reveal!

TFSS-Serpent-OR---Hisstank 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!

The Hub No More - Discovery to Rebrand the Hub and Take Larger Stake

hub-hasbro-x-out 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!

Buster-Jones---Hisstank 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.

G.I. Joe Kre-O Terror Drome Photo Shoot

001-Kre-O-Terror-Drome-GIJOE-Hasbro It's finally here....The Cobra Kre-O Terror Drome! HISSTANK.com has just posted up 30+ images of this awesome G.I. Joe Kre-O set. There were a few hiccups with the set like Tomax and Xamot both having a scar but over-all the best G.I. Joe Kre-O set to date.
  • Terror Drome set has 855 pieces
  • Includes Kreons Serpentor, Xamot, Cobra Scar Trooper, Clayton "Hawk" Abernathy, Gung Ho and Blaine "Mainframe" Parker
  • Fits Cobra Firebat and Cobra Ferret ATV

I really hope that Kre-O stays around as a brand. With the news that Hasbro's Kre-O brand will not be producing the Jurassic World brick sets and lots of Kre-O sets going on deep clearance at TRU lets hope it's not a sign of things to come. With the announcement that LEGO is now the #1 Toy Maker in the world, it would be hard to see the logic in Hasbro walking away from brick sets. Lets hope that Toy Fair 2015 is full of Kre-O news.

Check out all the new G.I. Joe Kre-O Cobra Terror Drome images after the jump.

Kre-O G.I.Joe KReons Wave 5 Hits US Retail!

Kre-O-GI-Joe-Wave-5-01---Hisstank Good news, Kre-O G.I.Joe Fans! Wave 5 of Kre-O G.I.Joe Kreons has been found at U.S. retail! This particular sighting and subsequent purchase was made by Hisstank.com forum member bigredmachine17 in the great state of Utah.

Now, you have may have some questions, so we'll do our best to address them -

Where's Wave 4? - Don't know. Hopefully it's being released sometime soon as well, perhaps there was a shipping error/issue and the waves were swapped...but this is all speculation on our part. Either way, new Kre-O G.I.Joe figures are here, so who cares what order the waves are in!

What are the bag codes? - Well, after finding out that blind bag codes were removed from Transformers Kreon packages, we knew it wouldn't be long before the same happened on our side of the fence. Wave 5 is confirmed to have no blind bag codes! Looks like there's going to be a lot of trading and eBay selling going on.

Who is in wave 5? - The Kre-O G.I.Joe Wave 5 assortment consists of:

  • B.A.T. (Battle Damaged)
  • Ninja Ku
  • Stinger Driver
  • Techno Viper
  • Tele Viper
  • Zarana
  • Bullet Man
  • Dial Tone
  • Leatherneck
  • Lifeline
  • Iceberg
  • Outback

We've mirrored some cool images that bigredmachine17 has posted up. You can check them out and join in on the discussion after the break.
