Welcome to the Outpost. This week I’m getting into the new G.I.Joe Retro 2020 vehicles. 2018 and 2019 posted giant goose eggs for vehicles. There weren’t many in 2020 either, but the 2 that were released are pretty awesome. First up is the Hiss Tank. The Classic 1983 Tank with a cool version of the Hiss Tank Driver. I hesitated to buy this one and eventually ended up with a few.
This is a great vehicle and holds up over time as one of the best if not the best Cobra Vehicle designs. The other vehicle released in 2020 is the A.W.E. Striker. This is probably the most used mold for the G.I. Joe franchise. I was finally able to find one at the very end of 2020 and it is just a cool vehicle. I had the original 1985 version and this one never gets old.
The steering and suspension system alone makes this one of the greatest designs ever. It’s not big or flashy, this is just a great vehicle and can be used in so many different situations. I have at least 6 different version maybe more and this 2020 version is as good as any. I wouldn’t mind seeing some more of the classic vehicles put out. These are great designs and having a classic version with new plastic will help preserve the memory of this vehicle. Who was able to get their hands on these vehicles? Sound off below and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
