PostSubject: Check yo' ROSS! HISS Scout and Cycle Armor are OUT!!!   Tue 7 Feb 2012 - 22:50

Only found one HISS Scout there today. But supposedly the Cycle Armor is hitting other ROSSes too.

The HISS Scout suffers from the one glaring flaw that the Icecutter has: That being that it really doesnt look like it has sufficient space for an actual engine.

Don't even try to hook it up to one of the larger PoC HISSes. But that's a minor quibble since one can simply choose never to do it whatsoever and still have a decent vehicle.

Slimmer ARAH figures can fit in the drivers seat. It could really benefit from a canopy to protect the driver. Theres absolutely NO protection, Not even a roll cage.



Dont have the Cycle Armor yet. From the pics Ive seen of it, Im not really sold on the armor mode at all. Mainly because there would be no place for an engine for the bike in order for it to be used as armor. However, at face value, it looks badass if you use it just as a motorcyle.

So get out there and look!

Well keep at it. They get shipments often throughout the week.

Another thing to note is that the HISS Scout's weapon CAN be removed and replaced with any other modular PoC vehicle weapon. Itll be mounted low and wouldnt clear the treads though.

For sure. I'll probably be back in there tomorrow. I hope to get 2 cycle armies and make a Centurions Jake Rockwell custom. This all remains to be seen.

My big problem with the cycle armor is that in order for it to be armor, that would mean that theyre couldnt possibly be room for an engine for the motorcycle. You can run a vehicle without an engine.

If by any chance someone gets the HISS Scout and could part with the modular weapon from it, please contact me.

Also looking for any other modular PoC / 30th vehicle weapons.

True, but this is Joe science. I mean, case in point, the thunder machine has a jet turbine intake right next to the occupants.

Perhaps, Ska. Make sure you take care of gijoe071681 needs first. It's only fair, he asked first. I have a ROSS

If you could figure out some custom vehicle to make with it, Id be happy to let you keep the base vehicle and driver. All I really need is the gun.

I believe my HISS Scout will function as a sniper vehicle. Since it doesnt look suitable for regular combat, it could be used as a precision long ranged vehicle, able to speedily get into position to fire and then scoot the Hell off. More hit and run geurilla tactics than open assault

No problemo.

Also, just so everyone who might care knows, the HISS Scout and Cycle Armor have also been sighted at Grocery Outlet as well.

And I can still use those HISS Scout guns.
