GeneralsJoes Reviews the Pursuit of Cobra HISS Scout

Previously unreleased, the latest wave of Alpha vehicles has hit Canadian Winners stores, and thankfully, friend of the site Paul wasted no time in asking if I wanted a hook up!  I’d already reviewed the Ashiko with Cycle Armor, but now I can add the HISS Scout to the Pursuit of Cobra Review Page.  Click the link below to check out the review directly.

    Wow– that thing is a real mess. Honestly, it is one of the vehicles that I’m glad is hard to acquire as I feel no need to do so.

    In the “Voltron shot” of the HISS and the Scout merged it almost seems like there is another component that is missing– something that wouldn’t cause the HISS to have to perform a wheelie. I wonder if fans will ever find out the real intent behind all of this.

    I’d love to get my hands on one of these. I really like it. Cool little vehicle in my opinion.

  • Chris

    Is it wrong that I now want one of these just to rip it apart and bash the treads onto a regular HISS tank?

  • Charles A Emanuele

    Hmmm, perhaps the HISS drone that comes with Cobra Commander is supposed to go on first or that is supposed to attach to the scout?

    I tried to figure out a way to make all 3 of them work together… just couldn’t get anything working.

  • Anonymous

    Not in the least. Taking pictures of them side by side made me think the same exact thing.

  • Scramble

    The trailer function doesn’t work? That’s so sad. I would have bought a PoC HISS just to attach it to a HISS Scout. I’m not sure where the confusion about why you would hook them together is. It’s like if the Night Raven drone was sold separately. On its own, just a neat little vehicle. Together, a small component of a large vehicle.

  • FMonk

    That is, literally, the most half-assed toy I’ve ever seen.

  • Southzen

    That was my first thought at the side by side shots. I gladly would take a canopy over the goofy combination gimmick.

  • ero

    Wow, man, that was a very generous review. I’m glad this thing was canned. It’s really, really weak.

    Yes, its only purpose in life is to be attached to a v1 Hiss. Can’t wait to see it.

  • Darren

    It’s funny I like the repaint of the 25th Hiss driver more than the mini Hiss. The Hiss scout just looks unfinished to me. Maybe half way through the design process Hasbro’s staff went strike and this is the result.

  • Gigamach (aka -Nas)

    This thing is terrible. Just worthless. It amazes me that it made it past the design phase, actually, what with all the other awesome vehicles in PoC.

  • Wjwitherspoon

    In my thinking, the HISS Scout is Cobra’s match for the G. I. Joe Armadillo.

    I wonder if the Ice Cutter canopy could be modified and attached to the Scout body. It looks like a “natural” design match if someone could get it to work.

    Thank you for the review. I might try to get 1 or 2 of these if I can find them for the right price.

    Is the Scout to HISS connection point on the HISS’ dodgy-looking rear cockpit hatch? Maybe that needs to be open.

    Anybody knows why the FC is translated to Portuguese and Spanish? This is the first time I see such thing on a Hasbro product!

    I´m pretty sure this toy won´t be sold here in Brazil, and the other portuguese-speaker countries are almost out of Joe fandom…so, why translate?
