    The Ninja VAMP seems strangely absent from both the press and showroom images.

  • LockOn

    Yes I was just thinking the same thing. I haven’t seen any pictures of it. And it wasn’t mentioned in the press release. I hope it’s not been canceled. I was really looking forward to it.

    Wow. 90% of the 3 3/4 figures are definite buys for me. Awesome!

  • Adam DeCobray

    Oh crap in a hat! I’m getting broke again. Just when I thought I’d be saving some money with this line.

  • Dragonfly177

    Also, kinda disappointed that the new HiSS seems to have lost the working treads from its predecessor. I won’t miss the pop up body, but the treads was one of the highlights of the POC HiSS. The other revisions are great, though. May still consider it as a “Command Hiss.” Also, could this have been repurposed from the aborted Renegades line? The weapon configuration seems similar to the one that Destro was driving in the last episode–I’d have to go back and look to be sure.

  • Adam DeCobray

    I don’t know if this has already been discussed but the more I look at that HISS commander, the more I fear that figure isn’t even complete. On some pictures, it kinda looks like a figure without legs that can only be plugged on the turret… meaning also that it would be impossible to put a real figure at his place.

    But you’re right, it looks a lot like Ren. Destro’s HISS, except they added a 3rd cannon and a different cockpit.

  • Ryan(Mapleleaf) Hildebrand

    Great Line up and even getting over the articulation issues when it comes to the drivers. Doesn’t anyone thing the Joe Colton figure looks like he stepped off the Die Hard Set first?

  • M6D

    Looks like the CG has the traditional uniform under the tactical vest too… Nice!

    Are we sure that RoadRock doesn’t have swappable hands? In the first picture he’s got black gloves and doesn’t appear to have the weapon block, while in the next two pictures his gloves are green and he has the block.
