Re: GI Joe Classified Haslab - Hisstank $299.99 - FUNDED! Tier 1 unlocked!

Fri Jul 01, 2022 2:55 pm

I can agree that tier 2 is a bit disappointing but I'll definitely be using these new pieces, which is something I can't say about tier 1. The red tread guards had grown on me but I think all of the red on the canopy is a bit garish and doesn't fit with the aesthetic of the rest of it. So tier 2 fixes that! But yeah, it's not the most impactful addition.

Ok, so hear me out. Even with this slower pace I think it's a lock that we're going to get to 16k easily. I think a cool nod to vintage fans would be to make a lofty unlock (like 25k or something) a Create-A-Cobra figure. Adding in the Mickey Mouse Cobra Commander to the Skystriker showed they actually understand the vintage fandom and what sort of easter egg would get people to jump on board or order a second. C-a-C isn't an easter egg exactly but it's definitely a niche figure that most casual fans won't know about, and like the MM Coco he's very expensive on the aftermarket.

Ahh, the 80's when if you wanted you could collect your proof of purchase flag points and officially join a terrorist organization.

And that bright pink uniform is perfect for the Cobra Vegas Showgirl brigade.

Ooooh that Create a Cobra is so awesome. I never got one and that seriously bummed me out as a kid. I don’t know about it being a tier for this HasLab, but I would totally buy multiples. The color scheme is so damn great.

More awesome tiers would definitely boost the orders. Getting the technician would’ve been enough for me so anything else is icing on the cake. That Hiss is gonna look so freakin good, it will just bring tiers to my eyes.

Crowd funding is a funny sport. Thousands and thousands of opinion rocking and swaying the perception of value.

To me it’s just entertainment since the thing I want is going to happen.

I wouldn’t care if the thing came with a pink colored Gung Ho for tier 3 and a cobra flag to stick on the turret for tier four.

The only number I cared about is as 8000 backers.

Thwipp!

Instead of a clear canopy, which I understand the appeal of, I would have preferred an armored canopy. Layered armor (for a snake vibe). And then maybe an open slot at one point for the driver to see through.

Armored canopy sounds great. I really need to see what they're going to include in the big open holes on the top of the gun turret. It's honestly really crappy of them to sell this thing for base $300 with accessory holes that have no accessories. If they never got funded, people would just end up with an incomplete $300 vehicle. Completing the vehicle (IE: stuff for the empty pegs/adapters) should have been the first stretch goals rather than swappable parts.

It's gonna be funny when they have no real plans for those pegs and just put them there to future proof the toy for any kind of future release or for the inevitable third party offerings to fill them

I'm thinking black with the shiny red helmet for the Cobra H.I.S.S. Tactician figure.

I kind of like the purple. It's very Techno-Vipery.
