A familiar face has received another care package from his Asian comrades, and Gyre-Viper has unloaded a plethora of images in this thread on HissTank.com featuring the G.I. Joe: Pursuit of Cobra HISS Scout.
An Alpha sized vehicle, which is currently in release limbo, it’s a neat little HISS shaped vehicle. Rumors abounded that it would somehow attach to its larger HISS brother, and Gyre-Viper confirms those rumors in the image gallery.
Currently, the status on both this vehicle and the Cycle Armor with Ashiko is completely unknown. The HISS Scout looks neat and all, but I will be absolutely crushed if the Cycle Armor doesn’t somehow find its way to retail. I MUST own that at some point. Yeah, I’ve heard that it’s a bit chinsy and has a tendency to fall apart with the wind, but I still want one, dammit. Until then I’ll live vicariously through Gyre’s images of the HISS Scout below.
Earlier today I passed along word that the February issue of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Newsletter would feature an interesting freebie and encouraged folks to join. Well, while we still don’t exactly know what the freebie is, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Facebook Page provided some more cool info about the February issue!
“A NEW regular feature of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club magazine will be a running Adventure Team comic in serial format! Each issue will feature two pages of story and art by Tod Pleasant and Rod Whigham! The first two pager will debut in the February issue of the Club magazine….”
That’s right! A NEW Adventure Team comic story…but the best part? Art by Rod Whigham! That makes my freaking day. I love seeing his covers for the IDW G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero books, seeing actual internal art in a G.I. Joe comic again will be fantastic.
Can’t wait. If you want to join up in time for the February issue, check out GIJoeClub.com now!
While I was able to capture a quick promo for Episode 9 of G.I. Joe: Renegades last week, it took a little while for me to get my digital mitts on this slightly longer one. But I think the wait was worth it! Featuring a few spoken lines by Zartan, and quite a bit more action, this second promo has me all fired up for tomorrow night!
For folks who missed it, or for folks like me who are just in love with the awesome high quality videos on Hubworld.com, the latest episode has been uploaded! Featuring the introductions of both Scrap Iron and James McCullen (AKA “Destro”), episode 8 takes a surprisingly dark topic and gives us 20 minutes of compelling animated action.
Of course, don’t forget that Episode 9, “Dreadnoks Rising” debuts on The Hub tomorrow as well, featuring the debut of Zartan and the Dreadnoks!
IDW Editor Chris Ryall has his own little corner of the internet, appropriately titled RyallTime, and has posted a nice little preview of the upcoming G.I. Joe: Infestation comic. Check out the blog right here, or just take a peek at the mirrored images below.
The January issue of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club newsletter recently hit mailboxes, and the Collectors’ Club is now encouraging fans to sign up for the Club in time for their February issue, promising a freebie that’s a “little different, AND a little special”. This message was posted to their Facebook page:
“If you are not a member of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club now, sign up TOMORROW (Friday) so you will be sure to get the February issue. It’s a little different AND a little special! And there’s an extra freebie included. It’s a great issue to start off with! Don’t say I didn’t tell all our Facebook friends! :-)”
I have no idea what this freebie ism but if you’re thinking about joining the Collectors’ Club, it sounds like now is the time. I know you want the Dial Tone, so click here to join up!
