GI Joe Classified Haslab - Hisstank

Thu Jun 09, 2022 3:09 am

Classified’s first Haslab teased at the end of today’s Yo Joe June Livestream with the sound of what sounded like tank treads moving. Most likely going to be the Hisstank. Should go live at the end of the month based on the teases throughout the livestream.

I'm interested, but it'd have to be something more than just an up-sized HISS. Something that size calls for a lot more detailing, and that much shelf space had better hold more than just two figures. Now, if they did a 1:12 HISS II I'd be all-in.

GI Joe Classified Haslab - Hisstank?

Thu Jun 09, 2022 3:43 pm

So assuming it’s the HISS, here’s what I’m hoping for:
Tier 1: HISS driver (or Rip-It, with standard HISS driver in a wave)
Tier 2: ASP with tow hookup to the HISS
Tier 3: Cobra mechanics, 2x, Sunbow style

An ASP is a whole ass new vehicle, that's too much to ask for a stretch goal. The HISS driver on the other hand should be part of the default campaign, making it an addon would be a dick move.

A HISS would be awesome but I wonder if they'd go with a Joe vehicle first. Maybe a MOBAT or, as mentioned in the other thread, a Triple T to go with Slaughter?

I'm not sure I'll be in no matter what it is because of space and cost. I'd also love an update on our Skystrikers.

A Hisstank would be the most logical, the Cobras vehicles were always cooler than the Joes.

I feel like with any vehicle, a driver must be included in the base offering. I don’t think we’d likely see many figures added beyond the first except maybe the final tier, and even then it would likely just be a repaint of some kind. I do like the idea of a mechanic. I would hope all figures are army builders so if multiples are bought, we don’t have armies of main characters.

I could see alternate sticker options being a thing like the Skystriker. Maybe some blast effects as another tier? I think keeping this under $200-300 would be the key to selling multiples. Anything above that and you’ll lose just about any multiple purchases behind flipping purposes.

Agreed. I think that partly has to do with a lot of Joe vehicles designed to resemble actual military vehicles whereas Cobra was pure sci-fi and fantasy. Most military vehicles aren’t designed to be flashy, quite the opposite actually, but CoCo sure loves a bit of flare to his organization :lol:

Same with the soldiers, a lot the joes being drab olive greens and beige while Cobra rocked dark blues, blacks and crimsons.

Which I kind of think is the reason things like Tiger Force happened. A way to get the same characters back into the line with more ‘kid friendly’ colors. I was probably the kid that ruined their marketing material. I always wanted Batman and Spider-Man as they looked on the show. I didn’t want purple Batman and beach Spidey. So things like Tiger Force were never really my thing although the classified ones have been fun.

Hiss Tank with the original driver would be amazing! I also loved the Hiss Tank II and it’s driver.

Well don’t thank me just yet, they could be toying with us and it might be something totally different :lol:

But everyone’s speculation since the start of the line would be that the Hisstank would probably be the first Haslab. All signs are still pointing to that being right.

I’m curious what upgrades they’ll give it. Maybe we’ll get a gunner figure? Will it have some troop carrier capabilities? Sticker customization? There must be some kind of hook to buy multiples is this after the Skystriker did well with the Cobra stickers. Maybe reverse that idea and have the option of a captured Cobra vehicle not unlike the Rebels stealing ships from the Empire in Star Wars?

I’m really curious how this all plays out and I’ll be glad if they don’t triple up on us again with Haslabs. That really hurt all three projects I think - especially the Rancor.

Ahh you are right, the driver should definitely be in the base offering. I wasn’t thinking there. Track Viper, the HISS II driver, would be a good sub for that tier.
I do think the ASP is doable as a tier, and would add a *ton* of value.
A “pre-paint” of Techno-Viper in HISS colors or Cobra blue could be cool as well.
