G.I.Joe Collectors Club Announces Archive Sale

GIJCC-Logo---Hisstank The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has sent an e-mail to Club and Mailing List Members advising of a Archive Sale! Check it out -

-----
On Wednesday (10/08), we will begin a new sale. We are running out of room in the warehouse and we have decided to "thin" down some of the archives. We have been keeping too many of each product for future use/reference and now it is time to reclaim the space! We have been at this for about 20 years so there is quite a lot of different items to choose from... some retail... some sold out exclusives and convention items!

However... we don't have many of any of these products! Some are the only one left!

Starting tomorrow morning we will begin putting up a batch of products each week. This is a very slow process as we have to go through each storage box and verify what is really there. We will send out an email when we post each week.

So, to make this even more fun we are including with each of these products, the below Certificate of Authenticity which if you look closely, has the embossed 1926 Corporate Seal of Hassenfeld Bros. Inc. Providence, RI. We came across this one of a kind item from a collector. We thought you would enjoy having a commemorative imprint from it. This is the FIRST corporate seal that was created when they incorporated in 1926!

Items have already been listed. You can see them here - G.I.Joe Collectors Club Archive Sale. Are you planning on checking out the Archive Sale? Sound off after the break!

G.I.Joe Battleground Capture Event - Cobra-La Reborn Now Live!

GI-Joe-Battleground-Cobra-La-Reborn---Hisstank After his defeat at the hands of the Joes, Golobulus knit his wounds, retreated into the darkness, and plotted. For a full year he has been quietly rebuilding his bio-tech empire deep in the Himalayas. While far from the former glory achieved by the Serpent Kings of old, his warriors are still numerous and they have never been more dangerous.

In addition to his powerful lieutenants, Nemesis Enforcer, Serpentor, and Pythona, he has improved his Royal Guard to become true killing machines. Maybe worst of all, he has deposed Cobra Commander and taken a sizeable Cobra force for himself, modifying these vipers with Cobra-La bio-tech.

It is an unstoppable army the likes of which the world is unprepared to deal with, and it will spread across the globe like a plague… but all hope is not lost. Snake Eyes returns from a solo training mission in the Himalayas with reports of Cobra-La's burgeoning strength, and the Joes rush to meet their eternal enemy at the heart of its power…
Can Bazooka's explosive skills stave off the Cobra-La attack? Will a surprising (if unstable) ally turn the tide for the forces of good? Can the Joes win a second "Clash with the Serpent King?" Find out in the exciting Capture Event on now!

---

EVENT NOTES

* Nemesis Enforcer (1L) is capturable at the end of Lethal 7.
* Golobulus (one-star Epic of four-star L) is capturable at the end of Lethal 8.
* Lethal 5-8 are much larger maps than usual.
* Breaking News probabilities have been increased slightly.
* The enemies for this event have been empowered, so expect heavy resistance from Golobulus' forces!
* Good luck! Yo Joe!

Hub Network Rebranding Official Info And New Hasbro Program Times

Hasbro-Discovery-Hub-TV-Network-Discovery-Family-Channel_1411659635 Hasbro has officially announced the rebranding of the Hasbro-Discovery Hub Network to the new Discovery Family.

We received a press release from Hasbro and they have announced several changes to the program lineup.

The Hub Network will become Discovery Family Channel effective October 13, 2014. The network will broaden its programming focus to serve families in primetime and continue to showcase Hasbro Studios award-winning children's content in daytime.

During the daytime, Discovery Family Channel will offer a robust line up of brand new Hasbro Studios' series as well as beloved library programming, including MY LITTLE PONY, LITTLEST PET SHOP and TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS, while during primetime, the network will serve a growing family audience that began to develop under The Hub Network. Primetime programming will draw from Discovery's three decades of leadership in creating the highest-quality, real-world content that appeals to the entire family in the Natural History, Adventure, Animals and Science genres. Initial series will include SUPERHUMAN, TIME WARP, FLYING WILD ALASKA, AFRICA and EXTREME ENGINEERING: BIGGEST REVEALS.


Also, Hasbro’s ownership stake in the channel will drop from 50% to 40% as the programming focus shifts to Hasbro-produced children’s fare in the daytime hours and family-friendly fare in primetime.

Variety reports that Hasbro may turn towards Video-On-Demand or Digital Distribution of their shows in the future:
“Hasbro, meanwhile, gains more flexibility to sell new and existing shows to digital outlets such as Netflix and Amazon. Kidvid is a huge component of overall viewing for the SVOD heavyweights, even though it doesn’t get nearly as much attention in pop culture as original series aimed at adults.”

Hasbro also commented on their future activities for Movies and TV Shows:
“The toymaker is investing big in production through its Burbank-based Hasbro Studios arm. “We are continuing to develop partnerships with the big studios for some of our biggest brands,” [Hasbro CEO Brian] Goldner said. “And you’ll see us developing movies with smaller budgets and strong filmmakers.””

Play With This Too Company Launch And Upcoming Kickstarter Campaign!

Play-With-This-Too-Logo---Hisstank Here is some exciting news from some old friends at a new company!

Former Hasbro employees launch new toy design and manufacturing company Play With This Too!

September 24, 2014

“You can play with their stuff, but you can PLAY WITH THIS TOO.”

Manchester, CT – Several former Hasbro employees and toy industry experts have pulled together to form a new design and manufacturing company named Play With This Too (PWTToo).

Play With This Too's goals include being a top brand developer, designer, manufacturer and wholesale distributor of high-end collectible action figures and toys. Their aim is to target the rapidly growing collector oriented toy market and produce products for both wholesale distribution and exclusives for conventions, retailers and websites.

In February of 2015, Play With This Too will launch a crowd funding campaign to produce their first line of original figures. This debut line will consist of 6” highly articulated action figures with interchangeable parts and weapons. These figures will include intergalactic heroes versus ferocious monsters.

In 2015, Play With This Too will continue to engage with potential licensors to bring official products based on existing brands to market. Later that same year, Play With This Too will begin to offer full service design and manufacturing, as well as intellectual property development for delivery over Transmedia networks.

More information regarding both staff and products will be released at RETROCON (www.retrocons.com) September 27th and 28th, 2014 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.

About Play With This Too

Former Hasbro Transformers Creative Manager Rik Alvarez founded Play With This Too in August of 2014 after a year of preliminary development.

Their mission is to deliver high-quality products while keeping costs to both retailers and consumers as low as possible.

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!

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!

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.
