View Full Version : 2016 SDCC: G.I. Joe and the Transformers Crossover set!

07-27-2016, 12:43 PM

G.I. Joe and Transformers fans have an all-new set to celebrate. This is the fourth set in a series of exclusive products that re-imagine G.I. Joe vehicles as their Transformers equivalents. In 2011, Decepticon Seeker Starscream scanned a Skystriker jet and teamed up with Cobra Commander. In 2012, Destro climbed aboard a devastating H.I.S.S. tank that was really Decepticon Shockwave in disguise. In 2013, the Autobots fought back, with Jetfire taking a Skystriker mode with Hound providing support as a classic G.I. Joe VAMP, all while Snake Eyes fought off the Baroness, Bludgeon and Ravage.

This all-new set features Autobot Powerglide in the familiar form of a Rattler jet but in his signature red colors. He teams up with Scarlett to take on Zartan and Soundwave, who has scanned into a H.I.S.S. tank but retained his signature cannons. G.I. Joe and Transformers fans are kindred spirits, as the modern franchises launched close to each other in 1982 and 1984, and the popular animated series often ran back-to-back in the 1980s. These two franchises have crossed over several times in comic books as well and will again in IDW's upcoming "Revolution" story-line.

If you missed this SDCC debut, watch HasbroToyShop for availability online this August.

Pretty cool, although I am only interested in the Rattler. I don't have the other 3 SDCC Joe/TF crossover sets so I don't know if I'm willing to drop $110 + shipping for this.

I just wish they would have included at least another constructicon BAT for the soundwave HISS Tank. Destro had a BAT to drive for him in the earlier set. A HISS is very much a two-man operation.

Also, the Rattler comes with Cobra Air Force markings so you can, indeed, make it into a Crimson Guard Rattler!

The Rattler is so worth getting this set. Just sell off the rest and recoup some if the cash.

Got a second set. Selling my Soundwave HISS Mark 2 and the Zartan and Scarlett figures on the bay if anybody wants them. PM me and I'll send the link.

I was happy to get my set directly from Hasbro. Didn't have to pay an inflated price on eBay or anywhere else. Packaging was great from Hasbro too.
