With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, we here at Seibertron.com would like to treat you with a glimpse of what's to come. The Shockwave H.I.S.S. Tank is but one of a few Transformers exclusives available this year at the show. It comes with Destro, Construction B.A.T. and loads of extras including energon cubes, a little soundwave in alt mode and a brief case full of cash. We got ahold of it early in order to bring you this indepth gallery.

Wait… the Shockwave "cannon" is a slide-on/off piece? Oh hell. That thing is cool and so are the little Soundwave and cassettes, but not $100+ mark-up cool. If I can grab one on HTS I'll get it, but otherwise somebody is going to cast that Shockwave cannon slider at some point

This set WILL be mine!

I picked up all the new model HISS tanks in black, red and blue just to have a reasonable display. (and maybe a FEW Joes and Cobras to go with them ;) )

I would love to see someone build a custom H.I.S.S. that transforms into Shockwave.

The front of the tank is Shockwave's eye. That is so goofy and awesome.

Another homerun! I wonder if they will jump into some GI JOE team members and Autobots together.

Easy enough would be the Prime HISS tank (even though Prime was technically on the cons/Cobra's side at that time).

Or they could use the VAMP and go Hound, or a jet and go Aerialbot or Jetfire. Even a motorcycle repaint as Arcee.

Lots of ideas to do, even though they won't all be as great as these first two seem to have worked out.

This, as an exclusive, looks terrific. I bought the briefly stocked Retaliation HISS, and it's not a very nice toy, and it's really, really lacking a lot. The SDCC one looks so much better and looks like it 'does' more. I'd like to get one.

Awesome idea, and the GI Joe parts of this toy are just badass! But the ultimate deal killer here for the $100+ price tag is the fact that the tank does not transform in Shockwave.

So, great GI Joe toy. Fail Transformer toy, but i'll give it an extra star for the extras.

As a GJ Joe Exclusive 10/10

As a Transformers Exclusive 2/10

As a Transformers/GI Joe crossover Exclusive: 4/10 (Would have given a 5 but the fact that it doesn't transform is a totally buzzkill)
