Here are just a few of my thoughts on this one. I think of the 3 this one is the best. Crankcase is a decent figure and more unique then the figures that come with the other two. It is a shame they have no real weapons or a stand. Crankcase does come with a knife. The figures seem to fit in the vehicle without to much problem. The vehicle is pre-assembled but there is a decal sheet for you to add stickers to it. It already has a few on it but you have to put most of them on youself. This to me is more of a pain then anything. I would prefer they already be on it myself. The AWE Striker is pretty true to the original. The shade of green they used I believe is a bit brighter then on the original. The file card is on the bottom of the box so you have to cut it out yourself. If your someone who like to keep it in the box you should be happy as its a big display box with clear plastic.

I'm really looking forward to this one & the Sharc (sorry I just can't make myself call it Spectre). I always liked these vehicles as a child. Now if we can get a Sky Hawk, I'll be really happy.
I think that the idea behind the sticker sheets is a throwback to the old days when you to apply the stickers on the vehicles after you assembled them.

The sample in the photo appears to be missing the "nozzle" at the end of the canon barrel.

Yeah it apprently fell off in the box and didn't notice it while shooting. It does come with the nozzle though.

Thing is, if he's a driver why did they give him a closed fist hand - I mean I know he's using shipwreck's body and all but still? Also Crankcase doesn't come with any weapons or a figure stand right, well except for that nifty knife? Didn't see all the pics yet, but do the 5-pack figures with the wider crotches who can't sit 90 degrees able to sit comfortably in the AWE Striker? Would have liked his filecard to be loose like the comic pack figures.

It's my favourite Joe small vehicle so I'm going to get it regardless.
