G I Joe Resolute Hiss Tank by dusty-abell G I Joe Resolute Hiss Tank by dusty-abell
Man, was I ever lucky to get to contribute, if even in just a small way to the uber coolness that is G I Joe Resolute. I did a couple designs for the initial pitch to Hasbro for the series over a year ago, one of which was the iconic flagship vehicle of the Cobra arsenel, the Cobra HISS Tank. To my amazement it actually found its way into the show and stangely enough, the video game based on the movie. WEIRD!!!! This was colored by the arteest supremo Kelsey Shannon. Big ups to Jaoquim Dos Santos, the main man behind Resolutes badassery for inviting me to be a part of something pretty darn cool. This project was stacked to the ceiling with amazing artists, designers and colorists which is why it looked so DAMN cool. I hope everybody enjoyed watching it as much as I did. YO JOE!

Very impressive, as well as practical design. A bit more slant on the turret and side-armor and I could see this being a legitimately effective medium-weight tank in real life.

The design is awesome, the show/series sucks.

But the HISS tank is one of the coolest vehicles in all of toy land, so that's an accomplishment getting it upgraded and used and all that. Congrats!:clap:

Wow, what an absolutely brilliant new design of the venerable H.I.S.S.! It still retains its iconic look, but the revised weapon payload gives it a greater punch over the original design, and it looks a helluva more menacing. Great work! Hopefully we’ll see this in toy form.
