Good morning Tankers,

World of Tanks is launching a special collaboration, and all of you can participate.



"World of Tanks is launching a special collaboration, and all of you can participate.

Created by HasbroG.I. Joe is one of the most popular action figure lines in the world. Generations of kids in the U.S. and beyond played with them and were captivated by the struggle of the international elite spec ops team against their sworn enemies of Cobra, a multi-faceted and masterfully coordinated global criminal network. Uncounted millions of battles which have been fought with plastic action figures (often commanded by present-day online tankers) have elevated G.I. Joe to the status of a cultural phenomenon.

And now, one global cultural phenomenon is about to meet another. The famous adversaries from G.I. Joe and Cobra have come to World of Tanks to settle their scores in their impressive new vehicles, the B.T.T. (having the same stats as the TS-5) and the B.O.A. (having the same stats as the T-54 first prototype)."


Get the full details on this awesome collab here
 in the article. Yo Joe!

Not for me, but kudos to whoever did the styles. They did a great job making them look like plastic toys.

Would have been nice if the commanders had special voiceovers.

If you have Prime, you can pick up the unique commanders on the 18th and put em in your toy tanks.

Why do we need prime to get the commanders?

It's how they have Marketed the event. Luckily our family has Amazon Prime so I can take advantage of these items.

Link your prime account above to your WOT account, fun loot items, unique commanders sometimes.. (like this event)

 

Pull out that wallet! lol

 

From the site:

 

The legendary G.I. Joe and Cobra leaders will be available as tank commanders as part of the Prime Gaming Package, which Prime Gaming members will be able to claim beginning March 18. Stay tuned to find out what else you will get in the package alongside Duke and Cobra Commander!

Grab these G.I. Joe and Cobra goodies and join their timeless battle, Commanders!

I have neither T54 First Proto or TS5... But I remember and love my G.I Joe stuff as a kid...

 

They really hit my emotions on this one... $100.. then OMG KV2R... another $30... 

 

Curse you WG... I'm going to think on this one for a moment.

 

TS5, sure thats a decent enough tank but the T54 Proto with no Preferred MM... hmmm...not really my thing. But grr it looks like a fun toy to get blown up in.

You can even see the outlines of the shiny decals. 

 

And the mold lines too!

If I were single still, totally agree. However my wife orders everything off of Amazon and Prime is something that came in with the marriage lol!

 

Might as well take advantage of it. :trollface:

In your case I'm glad that works out for you. The truth is everything you can by from amazon can be purchased online elsewhere, outside of amazon branded products. I don't support the company that treats the workers the way they do, nor their attempts to cut out small businesses.

This would have been better released on April 1st...

 

Also, will the tanks actually look like they are made out of plastic like in the video or not?

 

Also, this is kinda surprising.  Used to this type of stuff happening in World of Warships, or stuff like this happening in the Asia server for World of Tanks.  Not saying I don't like it, I actually do, and would wish that WG had WoT do more cross-over type events such as this instead of just WoWS.

I dont mind going off topic a little here. I totally get your point and I love to "touch" things before buying them, especially Tech or Toys. =) I try to support our local smaller stores, especially our Japanese Markets (love Sashimi and Ikura) and also our local hardware stores.

 

I miss Toys R Us, being an adult I could finally go there and buy whatever I wanted, nerf guns Di-Cast WW2 models etc.

 

I miss Fry's Electronics (not their customer service) Walking for hours around the isles, checking out everything they had. It's utterly pathetic now and I refuse to tarnish my memories by going back after seeing the state they are in. (I was gifted $300 as a youngster and I spent it all on a 3DFX Voodoo 3 3500) Good times.

 

My more affluent friend growing up had the GI Joe sets, we had so much fun playing with them. Curse you WG, heres my money.

This made me so happy. Got the styles as I have both of the premiums although I was a little bummed that the commanders are only available with prime. The good news (for me anyway) is that I never used my 30 day trial so I set that up today, linked my account grabbed the last pack and will wait until the 18 to grab duke & cc. I’ll just cancel my sub at that point...hopefully I won’t lose the commanders (I was told I won’t)

You can get a one month free trial of Prime. Cancel before the last day and pay nothing.
