Neither of these seem to grab me....interest me.

Don't like the looks of the Gunship (needs a propeller or something?) and the truck looks too much like a diecast tonka truck with Cobra stickers on it.

I don't like the vehicles at all.
The figures are cool.
Weren't they going to rename Firefly -> Wild Weasel? I remember reading that during Toy Fair. They even changed the color of his helmet.
Bonus points to people who can name the Steel Crusher's previous names. @hmmm@

Nothing we haven't seen already, just some different angles (which isn't bad lol).

The Motor-Viper is cool, but hard to say about the truck. Have to "see what it does".

Tha Firefly, meh. The helmet looks familiar though.

And the Gunship is, well that just stupid looking. Like Viper Hunter said, it looks like it needs a propellor.

It actually reminds me of the Jackhammer from M.A.S.K.

We just need a Cliff Dagger to go with the Matt Trakker.

Well, the box art shows it flying past the Eiffel Tower as it's falling (ripped off from Team America?) so I'm assuming it flys, but it also has snow skis under it, so who knows what all it does? ^_^

They look o.k. but I think I'll probably pass on these...too much else I'm more interested in.

the gunship actually looks like it is supposed to have a rotor coming out of the top, as if it were a chopper... but they cut it for some reason..

I like the Firefly though..


the hummer thing is okay except for the gun on top

I agree with all the comments about these two vehicles.The gunship just looks flat out odd.If it had a propeller it would be a cool mini copter.The gunship reminds me of the mini copter from the Jurassic Park 3 toyline.The Crusher just looks way too plain.As for the figures I like the Nitro Viper head and vest.The Firefly looks different enough to be used as someone else.

The other problem I have with the Steel Crusher is that it looks to "realistic" for Cobra. It looks more like a Joe vehicle IMO.

I agree with that.

Well at least the S.H.A.R.C. looked like it could be both. This thing looks like an escape pod for a larger vehicle.

It was adequate, but way too centered around Deep Six's gimmick. For as many times as they reused the mold AND due to the "upgrades" the other RAH vehicles got for 25th, they could have at LEAST put a seat (or maybe 2, hard to tell if there is a fit) for a regular figure. I think it would have sold more/better. Right now the "Shark Tooth" is a shelf-warmer.

This things are ok. The Steel Crusher seems a bit bland IMO. I like the gunship, but think it would look better with a propeller on top, or a retractile propeller or something.

Interesting that the firefly's differ in t hese pics. In the official ones his helmet is grey, in these his helmet is red.

Is it just me or is the gunship straight out The 6th Day? It looks like that conversion thingy Arnold flew just without the ability to have a top rotor.

you know.. having seen that... i don't think a propeller would help this particular vehicle out very much :) i whish they'd make some kind of cobra copter thats a troop transport/ smalll vehicle transport. (like the tomahawk only all cobra'd out)

I think it would have been better if it had a prop, but then it would lock down and second as a wing of some sorts for fast flight.
