I think it will likely pass 30,000. This will make that Cobra commander worth WAY less. It has a deco that no one really wants, and it will no longer be that rare. Even if it stays under 30,000, that is an insane number of backers.

5 hours left! As much as I feel the brand team has done a great job and this HISS looks fantastic; I have not backed the project yet.
I really didn't/don't intend to but now 2nd and 3rd guessing what I will do.

I wanted my G.I. Joe's to be somewhat realistic this time, sorta what Larry Hama intended before the toy company got really wild on designs in the later 1980's. But I got Dr. Mindbender and I'll get Serpentor so I should just embrace the fantastical. I mean Destro does have a silver metallic mask with expressions no matter which way I slice it.

I never liked the HISS as a kid (it was a death trap then too)

I have the funds, I have the space, its backed either way so no need to sell me, but I don't know what I'll do in the next 5 hours. Its not FOMO its just what do I want my Joes to be and how does the HISS fit in?
I say order one. Then you have over a year to figure out the answer to your internal question. It’s better to have one and want to get rid of it later than to want one when this starts shipping and not have one. Your thoughts on the line might change dramatically over a year based on what else we might see. The Hiss might fit right in by that point. If not, you’ll have no problem unloading it. Buying one now will buy you time to decide.

To get to 30,000 it needs to be moving at a much faster pace than it is right now.

It might make 26,000 be midnight, but I don't know.

As for rarity, yes there will be at least 25,000 CC, but how many is that compared to a regular retail release figure? The BATS and Alley-Vipers were originally packed 3/2/1 (BATS/AV/Gung-Ho) in a case. If they made just enough for 1case per store for Walmart and Target only in the US that would be what? Almost 10,000 cases? So 30,000 BATS and 20,000 AV? Now of course they didn't just make enough for those 2 chains, and their US operations only. There are other chains in the US, and stores all over the world that would possibly order cases as well. Then you have online retailers like Amazon, smaller ops like BBTS and Dorkside in the US, not to mention even smaller operations in the US and around the world. Then you have the refresh cases and possible solid cases of figures that come after the inital releases. Thinking about it that way I could see there being easily 80,000+ BATS and AVs around the world.

So this Mickey Mouse CC being 25,000-30,000 units is already probably only a third of what is produced for a regular retail release. Then add in the artificial scarcity that comes from the limited window to get him and you have a perfect storm for a higher secondary market price.

All four of the Haslab HISS figures will command at least double retail price on the secondary market. However I really think it will be $100 minimum for each after the HISS is finally shipped.

The good thing for those who want this version of CC (ARAH look, not Mikey Mouse logo) is that he is coming to the regular retail line, just not for a while.

I think the more units sold will give Hasbro confidence to do another Lab I’m 2023 for a GI Joe vehicle or get more in the main line. I’ve made vehicles and bought a few three d printed pieces. Vehicles are something GI Joe Classified fans will support unlike Star Wars Black Series or even the mighty Marvel product fans who will get a chance for a Ghost Rider hell charger piece this year. It’s time for more than motorcycles.

Regarding the Commander, I think the mouse print is silly…I really like the figure. I’m not just parting with it. I’m not just going to sell it for $50-75. I think many collectors will be like that. So it’s going to be worth at least $50. That’s a sixth the selling price.

This tank will maintain value even at 25,000+ units made. I’m hoping it has an ASP or Stinger or Fang or Ferrret…to pose along with it by Fall 2023. Hoping the Flight Pod/Trouble Bubble is an order able thing by end of year.

Thwipp!

The Cobra Commander will probably be the cheapest because it's the only non army builder and the only one likely to be reused, with a different logo.

Do you think the retro-retail CC will include all the same accessories as the Mickey Mouse version? Particularly the world snake?

No idea, this is all speculation. We don't even actually know if it will get a reissue.

Probably won't get the snake wrapped around the globe in the regular release.

Thought I was going to be able to pull it off at the last minute, but sadly I will have to pass on this one. Maybe there will be a no frills one down the road or some other vehicle to get for Classified.

Bummed, because I loved the idea of having a 1/12 HISS Tank.

Good chance the HISS will surpass the Victory Saber! The Razor Crest though? Probably not. Beating Galactus will be a Hail Mary. Hopefully Hasbro will give us 6 months to recover for the next Classified Haslab.

I'm sure the team is salivating at what they can give us next.
