Toys R Us is now getting in stock of TF Outback and PP Viper.

There have been sightings in Toronto and Ottawa in the past week.

So if you are looking to get them, now might be the time.

Unfortunately you are paying the TRU tax to get them though ($44.99+tax).

Just in case anyone is interested.


Sgt. Slaughter is now up for preorder at most online etailers (DJC Colllectibles, Toy Snowman, etc.) as well as Gamestop.

He is $50

Seriously, I know it was expensive, and people out there were quite vocal in complaining about how this should have been a retail release, but.....

You can't tell me that with 7 carded figures, all the accessories and support vehicles, plus the Skystriker and multiple sticker sheets, that Hasbro (specifically the Joe team) didn't try their hardest to put as much value as possible into the high price.

It is a shame that we couldn't get the Ketchup & Mustard deck crew as well, but still what a great looking set.  I can't wait for it to arrive.

Update:

HISS Tank:


16,496 / 8,000  (+75)  As expected the daily number has dropped again, and will probably continue to drop for a few more days before levelling off at some low double digit amount.  Then of course it will jump up again in the final days.  That is, of course, if nothing else is offered/shown/incentivized for backers.


206.20% of funding goal with 31d 17h left.


Definitely has slowed down quite a bit, but of course it is all gravy from now on for Hasbro so they don't have a worry.  It will be interesting to see what they do to try and keep the interest up for this project.

Wow, very cool idea from Super7. Too bad these are 5POA...



They work really well with the 3.75" O-ring figs as background characters, or in vehicles.  Some people online have posted using the sailors from the last wave to fill out their Flaggs. 

This set is great, but I am really only interested in the Security Robot.  Too bad it is an SDCC exclusive because the price is probably going to be a bit high.  I mean I paid just under $100CDN for the Arctic Vehicle set (with the Blind Woodsman and sled) so I can only imagine what this will cost as an exclusive.  On top of that it is only available at SDCC and if anything is left after the show it will be put up on the Super7 site, which means shipping and customs on top of the price.

So as much as I like this set, I am passing unless I can find it up here for the same price.  Now I have to hope that Super7 decides to give us the Security Robot as a single release down the line.

So we passed the 16,000 tier 4 unlock yesterday!!!!

Nice to see everything is unlocked and now we enter the "hurry up and wait" stage.  34+ days until the end of the funding period means we probably have a lot of quiet time until the last few days.

Definitely a nice problem to have.

Awesome for all those who backed it. Definitely best bang for your back with all tiers.
Still think they should have included a towable vehicle

I have no doubt that there is something planned to be towed by the HISS.  Especially since Lenny mentioned the tow hook during the reveal.  The question becomes, do they have something in reserve to "surprise" fans with another, higher tier?  Or is it something that will show up at retail, or fan channel stores, since the HISS has done so much better than anyone expected?  Which means that the higher ups at Hasbro will probably be willing to let the Joe brand have more money, and opportunity, to get vehicles on shelves.  Hopefully they can show retailers that there is demand as well with how well the HISS is doing.

So tier 4 is a Mickey Mouse Cobra Commander.

It looks great, and I can't believe they are giving us 4 figures in this project.  This looks to be a great figure, and I like all the little details.

Now I'm being greedy and hope they give us a surprise 5th tier due to the fact that this is going to pass the tier 4 goal with at least 35 days to go until the end.  That is a lot of time with nothing to draw attention to the project.

Then swung all the way back to impressed with the third tier.  A female HISS Gunner (Driver) is awesome, and the nose guns are a nice addition.  The only thing is that with all these accessories the HISS is starting to look a little ridiculous all kitted out.

Where did you get these intel?

There is a post on Instagram, and you can also see it on the front page of Hisstank.com

So I backed this already, but man the unlocks have really made this tempting to me for a second HISS.

However the price keeps that thought in check.

I was happy with the first unlock, but underwhelmed by the second tier.  Then swung all the way back to impressed with the third tier.  A female HISS Gunner (Driver) is awesome, and the nose guns are a nice addition.  The only thing is that with all these accessories the HISS is starting to look a little ridiculous all kitted out.  The picture of it with the missile racks, nose guns and turret guns is kind of busy looking.  I'll probably keep it simple with maybe the missile racks, or one of the turret guns. 

I think making it compatible with both 6" and 3.75" would be a cool idea, but Hasbro isn't going to "confuse" the brand with that kind of option.  Plus they can try and sell us a second version for 3.75" separately down the line. 

Overall this is a great Haslab in my opinion, and I am glad to see it is killing it compared to other projects.

That's a lot of money for a Hiss tank. Hoping it will get functional treads

If it doesn't have working treads for that price it will be a deal breaker for a lot of fans.  I am expecting it to have that at least.

I am also hoping for some kind of support vehicle.   A lot of people are hoping for a tow vehicle (Asp, MMS) but I don't think Hasbro is willing to go that big for an add in vehicle.  However I hope they do some kind of support vehicle like the fueler and weapons cart they did with the Skystriker.

Forgot to add.  I did a quick calculation based off past Haslab projects that I bought, and here is what I expect as the final total for the Classified HISS Tank:


$299.99US + $29.99US shipping + $42.90US (Ontario 13% HST) for a final (US) total of $372.88.  Once converted by today's exchange rate, that comes out to $480.24 CDN!!!!!!!

OUCH!!!!!!!

I would say that is crazy, but I have been a sucker for a lot of the Haslabs, so I'll probably cave on this as well.  I'm just hoping they trick it out like they did the Skystriker.
