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!

G.I. JOE: 13

My grocery stores are so lame. I haven't found a toy I need/want in a grocery store for a long long time. But I remember when I was a kid I'd spend the entire trip to the store on the toy aisle while my Mom shopped. *Sigh* those were the days.

Cool tank!

The Magic Grocery Store just turned up the 1:50 scale 1960's Batmobile the other day, I think the buyer there is a comic book geek! I've also seen the Captain America Armor and some of the new DCUC including Aries and a gold Captain Atom!

Wowzers! Maybe I need to send you a grocery list!!! The Gold Captain Atom is one of the variants from series four, of which I can't even find the "normal" releases!

Ares and Captain America Iron Man are also on my "must haves" list - I'd be doing all the grocery shopping if I lived in your town.

I look for excuses to go the store..."what we need an ice cube, I'll be back!"

The toy aisle is nothing like it used to be back in the day.
