The GI Joe aerial vehicle looks great. I wonder how a bit of rainbow-ish copper paint would look on the exhaust ports on the engine just to give it that heat-treated patina you see on the back of jet engines.

As for G.I.J.C. I think his all terrain rental car with break away door panels and everything else would be the ideal method to transport him into battle. I feel he'd be more of a transportation unit given that so many of his movies involve going on "trips" rather than any actual fighting.

Get to work on those custom G.I.J.C.'s people.

Thank you.

I built a bench on the inside 2-3 troopers can sit on. I built the rails which the characters can clasp if you open up their hands a bit. I think that ledge can hold 3-4 troopers. It was fun as a kid to peg lots of figures in on the Joe vehicles and have guys hanging all over the tanks. This thing is designed to hold on to 8 troopers not counting standing on the sides. I could have guys all over this thing and it will be large enough to photo/play with.

It may have been better to have made a opening hatch and give more access to the main chassis like a troop mover. I started with original HISS in mind and changed design to my interest. It had a back standing ledge so I made one a little bigger to fit the crazy scale I chose. The drop in turret also limited space too. My 12 year told me I’m waisting a bunch of space on the inside. He’s right. But I’m making this as a diorama/big toy to have Cobra and Joe battling it out with mostly on the outside.

I can’t wait to set up a big table full of whatever scenery I can round up and lots of guys and spend a day or two finding fun pics.

It needs the detailing to look right.

Thwipp!

I wonder how possible it would be for Hasbro to license out they're vehicles to be made by a 3rd party creator. Like a vehicles only line that are made for the classified figures. I remember Larry Hama saying something like the figures were just to get you to buy the vehicles which was the real money maker. If they could build a hisstank and or vamp around 60 bucks and smaller vehicles at around 30 I would be all in.

Hasbro could make VAMPs and HISS vehicles but the price point would be higher than $60. I think they would do a $100 vehicle maybe with repainted figure. But they could make one.

Hasbro could definitely do it, but I would prefer another company just so I wouldn't have to wait ten years for 3 or 4 vehicles. I guess my bigger point is with the popularity of 6 or 7 inch figures why isn't there a company that capitalizes off this by making vehicles and playsets for this scale. Vehicles and or playsets only. Kind of like how businesses that just make cloth goods saw the need and created it. World Peackeepers or a company like that i feel could do this cheaply.

I would think if Hasbro didn’t have plans for vehicles in the next couple years they might allow official 1/12 scale product from other companies. But I think Jan we will see Trouble Bubble and maybe another small scale vehicle. AWE Striker seems a good pairing with RAM. They could have tires removed to get it in a small enough package. They can also do a completely plastic-less package like the old school Joe boxes.
