I tried the Arctic Shipwreck jacket on him and it fits, but didn't look that great.  I'm thinking the Snow Job jacket is going to be a better match but I'm not sure.  I'm sure someone has already done it, but when I looked for photos on Hiss Tank I didn't find any photo examples.

My TRU had a lone Hiss Tank on the way home that I was going to buy, but held back.  I'm a tad colorblind, and I know my black....This thing isn't black.  Has this every been asked in a QnA?  Seems very silly/stupid IMO as this is a complete reboot of this classic vehicle.

Yeah, that tank may be more of a dark grey than true black.  But I thought it looked good in the color that it comes in.

I also saw the tank and the Wolfhound (or whatever the Snow Cat is called now) at TRU last week but didn't buy.

The new HISS is definitely dark brown or a dark rust color. It's a really cool toy, regardless of how you feel about the classic. I would recommend it, especially if you can find it for $20 or less.

Wave 2 carded images!

Pretty neat. I'm pretty sure I'll pass on Destro and the Snake Eyes from this wave, though.

And, in case you're not registered at Hisstank, here are the images from Generalsjoes.

Easy to pass on another Snake Eyes, especially easy when he is packed full of "action feature" line killing lameness.

I fully understand needing Snake Eyes and Duke in every wave.  I just like my Commando to be Ninja Free.

I'm not hot on that Snake Eyes or Destro and I plan on buying the Destro from overseas to get the original headsculpt.  I'll get Dusty but I want to see Recondo in person before I decide on him.  And I don't know about that Jungle Viper.  That odd camo thing he comes with is just a little too out there for me.

I'm just holding out for the two TRU exclusives and then the 2011 stuff; Low-Light and the others that were shown off at Joe Con.

I was just looking through some of the pics over at CTR for this line (from SDCC), and I think it looks pretty nice.  Sure, it doesn't compare to the 25th Anniversary line, which was so well done and nostalgic at the same time - but for a "new" Joe line, I think it looks pretty nice.  I don't know how much I'll be able to grab, maybe a figure here or there, but if I was strictly buying Joes I think it would be a fun line to collect.

I think some of it looks cool, I'll pick and choose the figures that I buy.  And anything my son wants, I'll get him.

Also, I wish they throw a Resolute Cobra trooper in somewhere.  Would be sweet.

I really like a lot of the single carded figures - not really feeling the rides other than the Dreadnock on the bike.

I've liked a lot from what I've seen of this line and will definitely be buying up a few here and there.  Just hope I don't get sucked back into another carded Joe collection, but the artwork is rather spiffy.   :-\

Yeah, I think the cardbacks are pretty nice as well.  Similar to the vintage line, but updated as well - again, if we can't get anymore 25th stuff, this seems to be the next best thing.

Scored Spirit and Quick Kick at my local TRU today. Spirit is incredible, but I would have had a tough time paying $7.50 for QK. Thankfully, the sale was still on, so I got the last set for $10.

I have to agree with the cards being really neat. In person, they're even better. I could see myself getting suckered into a carded set, but since POC is only four waves, it wouldn't be a big deal.

Dusty and Recondo are badass.  I'd like to pick some of the POC line up I think.  I'm going to get suckered into purchases.  Oh well.  :)
