Now for some Cobra Reinforcements!
The H.I.S.S. tank is mine again! My original one was the black version and didn't come with a driver this one, also the black version, came with a driver and a few bags of Groceries! That's right I found this one at the grocery store. I'm sure they are everywhere, but he was actually a dollar less at the local food buying place. Man I love that Grocery store.
How cool is it to be able to hit the grocery store and come out with a freaking tank! That's Cobra cool there! This is exactly like my vintage one with the non moving treads, rotating blasters that you can pop off and pretend it's a flying laser canon (come on I'm sure I wasn't the only one that did this). If I remember right I picked up my original one through a mail away catalog that came with another GI Joe vehicle, ah the magic of toys in the mail which would make sense that it didn't come with a tank commander or driver. I wonder if the store bought ones back then did, that's okay my Joes always stole the H.I.S.S. and used it against Cobra.
I would like to end with a quote from my son "Holy Crap they sell junk that big at the grocery store!" They sure do, COBRA!
