Upgrade one about to unlock…

Guesses for upgrade two?

I’m guessing battle damaged panels and blast effects.

Anybody read the promotional material on the Haslab page? There's an excerpt from Destro's journal that reads:
The recently-foiled machinations of Cobra Commander to melt the polar ice caps have severely impacted funding at M.A.R.S. (Military Armaments Research Systems) Industries. I have the plans, but not the means to produce an unstoppable fleet of armored vehicles that would surely crush the forces of G.I. Joe under its mighty treads. Out of his usual incessant prattling came the germ of an idea from Cobra Commander that may provide the necessary capital to make these designs a reality. His latest scheme is to appeal to the masses themselves and have them finance it for us. It is quite diabolical, actually, as I have found “a fool and his money are soon parted.”
Given how some people feel about Haslab pricing and even the fact that Hasbro is relying on crowdfunding, those last two sentences are way too meta.

Has any other Haslab project fully funded in less than 24 hours? Genuinely asking, I have never followed any closely except Unicron and Star Saber, and much as I love them they certainly did not.
No, this was the first to fund on day one. Also the first to unlock the first tier in under 24 hours.

Blast effects is definitely gonna be a tier, Lenny hinted the HISS can tow something from the back. Whatever its towing will probably be another tier. I still hoping we get a third figure as a tier too.

I've been trying to look for a pic in the web; What does the Cobra HISS Tactician look like?

Was there a version of him released in previous Joe lines? I can't seem to find what that trooper looks like

All I can seem to find is that pic Hasbro posted of a hiss tank driver in all gray/silver

It should be a fan vote after the campaign for one of those color schemes on the right.
Great find, I looked a bit yesterday and couldn't find anything. I'm hoping for the black/red look (or maybe it's blue/black?)!

Amazing campaign so far, big congrats to Emily and Lenny. I'll admit I'm not all that excited for the first tier reward but they aren't all going to be bangers. I just hope we get at least one more figure. If people's guesses of blast effects, battle damaged panels, and a tow-behind are accurate then I actually think this campaign is going to lose some steam. Of course, at the current pace we'll have unlocked everything by the end of the week so hopefully they'll add some more incentives. 40+ days of nothing new would really be a bummer after such an exciting start.

I'd argue that if peoples guesses are accurate, like they were with the missile pods, it would go a long way to making the price tag feel more worth it. The missile pods adds some beef to it and having a pull behind of some sort like a weapons platform are great value adds to the base Hiss. I'd love another figure too but at the same time, its not like there isn't tons of troopers for Cobra already available. Blast effects and battle damage are by far my least interested things but they feel standard for something like this so it isn't a negative to be to be a stretch goal.

Only things the vintage ever pulled were the ASP and the Sears exclusive came with a recolor of the joe missile launcher

Would prefer the asp but a towed missile platform the hiss technician can man would be cool too

So far for $300 we have the HISS Tank, 2 figures that will be boxed and numbered, and a set of missile pods/racks.

What could be next? I don't know but here are my updated guesses based on what we have seen so far, and what the Joe team did with the Skystriker.

Tier 2 - Accessory Pack - guns for the rack, blast effects, some kind of flag/banner/gonfalon for the turret area.

Tier 3 - Towable missile rack cart to go with the Tier 1 missile racks. Seriously how will they get on the battlefield outside of actually sticking them on the HISS itself? What better way to display them when not attached to the HISS?

Tier 4 - Another figure. Probably some version of Cobra Commander, but I don't know which one.

That's my current guesses anyway, and I would be happy with all of them if they happened. I think my expectation on a towable "vehicle" has come down quite a bit now, and I think something fairly basic that can carry the missile racks is more likely than a full MMS, and definitely not a chance of an ASP.

The way they explained it is there were different color versions that Ron Rudat was looking at for the HISS driver, one of those is going to be the tactician chosen by backer vote. It's a driver recolor basically.

The missile rack unlock blows. We probably will get the skulls and bones with cobra logos on them.
