I'm liking the vehicles, but could pass on all the included figures.

Both these sets are kind of a let down. Using Buzzer's torso to make Leatherneck was a pretty bad choice. I just can't get past the shoulder pad and skull and crossbones on the belt. Almost as bad as using Zartan's mold to make Major Bludd. As for the other set, I would've liked to pick up a Fang but I'm not interested in any of that garbage it comes with.

I'll grab them both.. I like the AWE in those colors (I actually already have one made from parts from the Stargate movie desert cruiser and the RAHC night awestriker.. its awesome.

 

I like the Fang and Claw too.. but those cobra troopers are awful

Put a checkmark in that column for me as well.

Indeed!

I don't mind the Cobras at all. FANG Viper will just get a new coat of paint. Should be easy enough to make him a Python Patrol Viper.

A.W.E. Striker: We've seen this how many times lately? This is just like a kick in the head after the limited availability of the one with Crankcase. But desert colors DO make sense.

 

Leatherneck: The mold used is....adequate. Maybe if we complain like we did about Major Bludd, we'll get a better one in green.

 

F.A.N.G.: Nice. What else to say?

 

"Viper": Its hard enough to make up guys as it is when they are generic like this. I think they could have easily cobbled together a "Heli-Viper" using Snow Serpent's head and Copperhead's legs, for example.

 

C.L.A.W.: Much improved!

 

"Trooper/Officer" He's ok, I guess. They could have hima Raptor Viper. Or something. Or, I know, how about the actual Viper Pilot? the C.L.A.W. is kinda the same as the Viper Glider.

I think I'm the only one who likes "Inverted-Viper". The Joes have all kinds of specialists running around, why can't Cobra have a few Vipers who have earned non-traditional uniforms (probably through sheer survival), but not a place in Cobra Command? Or maybe it is generic- maybe it's a Strato-Viper training outfit or something.

 

I like the Cobra Pilot too. Reminds me of Cobra Glider Pilot... but I don't want to see a glider, so him riding a CLAW is just fine with me.

The pilots could be colored better but I like the idea behind them. We always heard about these generic Viper pilots so to me that is what the Viper with the FANG will be. The CLAW pilot is pretty much a comic pack Jetpack trooper with a bigger jetpack so that makes sense. The colores are jsut a tad bad though.

 

The AWE Striker looks nice colored like that but the L-Neck sucks. I'd rather swap the head with TF Flint head and make a desert Flint.

Love The Fang Copters. Have only owned two in my collection. Will have to buy some and send them to my kids. Going to buy the Serpantor set and send in to my boys bought the new Firefly and Storm Shadow set and sent it to my kids. Just cant wait for the MainFrame and Beach Head set to come out. Love those two guys Beach Head is my all time Favorite Joe other than Leatherneck. I would have to agree with others do not like him in desert drab

That's what Motor-Viper, H.E.A.T. Viper, Strato-Viper, Frag Viper, Eel, Snow Serpent, Tele-Viper, Techno-Viper (or, appropriate for here, Gyro-Viper and Heli-Viper), etc. are for.

Did they redo these two vehicles?

 

Samantha

 

They've made some minor modifications to all the vehicles they have put out (so far as we've seen).

 

The F.A.N.G. didn't get much, other then a new nose gun, from what I can tell.

 

The C.L.A.W. though got new handlebars for the pilot to control it. That's the most obvious.

Another Repaint hu? LOL how sad, Hasbro has just run out of Ideas over and over and over and over and ov...sorry you guys get the point. The CLAW does not even have wheels anymore and it does not have an under belly. Now the sucker that I am I pre ordered 6 of them (thank god that was it) I will only be keeping the fangs and selling everyting else. Man I can not wait untile my figure line is released. But either way JOE JOEEEeeee..... fade to black......

All of those guys being generics as well. My point is that it's not like Cobra is dying to hand out promotions, so I don't find it hard to believe they'd compensate by messing with the uniform and such. GI Joe has a two-tier structure consisting of greenshirts and specialists/unique characters, and I don't think it's going too far to think of Cobra as using a three-tier structure consisting of troops, Cobra Command, and guys in between who are better than the average soldier of their type, but not good enough to be in Cobra Command. There is actually support for this in the cartoon (Dusty and Claymore in 'The Traitor' seem to rank high enough to make using their helmets and masks optional) and in the comics (Scarface, who has subtle differences in his uniform compared to that of other officers). We even see this in the current toyline with the Snow Serpent Commander in the Arctic set (I maintain some of the stands were switched), and the Crimson Guard Officer and CG Leader.

 

Or, as I also said, even if you go with the assumption that it's a generic, maybe it's a training uniform that denotes this particular Viper is being trained as one of the specialty Viper types. I would doubt that a Gyro-Viper in training is going to be making formation with the regular Vipers, and this instantly identifies him as being something different.

 

I dunno. Maybe it's just me, but I can think of several good 'in-universe' explanations for why a Viper would be in this outfit. It's a lot better than some of the garish things we've bee exposed to in the past (just how effective are Alley Vipers in bright orange, anyway?), and I just don't have a problem with one Viper in a photo-negative outfit. Hmm... actually, I think I might call him Nega-Viper. I like the sound of it.

I like the FANG. Really looking forward to getting that one. There was one in the GVC line but it just wasnt quite the same. I think it actuallly came with a Cobra CLAWs Figure, at least thats how I displayed it. But this FANG looks great, even like the one my brothers had back in the 80s and passed on to me to play with. I hope they release enough of these.

 

The Kool Aid Viper needs to go....to get a better color scheme. Maybe will look better in person.
