hay just saw this on joesightings about the thunderwing jet as an exclusive heres the post what do u think
I found the VvV Thunderwing Jet with Slip Stream at TRU Ontario CA today. Trick is that Toys R Us picked up a first major retail dig on this bada$$ jet, AND they throw in a free Ace figure with an exclusive to TRU deal.
Man oh man, this jet totally rocks the house, as fun (IMHO) as the original Sky Striker, and LOADED with features. I have not been so excited about ripping a Joe vehicle out of the package on my ride home for a LONG time. Cost in USA money is $29.99, awesome air-power for Joes (Night Adder is flat out dead now ), plus a new Slip Stream figure that ROCKS, and a totally free pack in of our latest '04 VvV Ace figure (no changes).
The electronic feature activates with a flick of the weapon trigger, and is motion activated. You can shut it down by pressing the top-taxi light button (flashes red). Turn the dial on the left thruster to switch from bombs to missiles, this also changes the sighting mechanism from down to forward. The stick on the underside and it's two button configuration remind me of real jet controls, or at least a game flight controller. The bomb button alternates between inside and outside armaments, so you don't drop the whole load at once. The missiles on the other hand can rapid fire like the NAC from the port hidden above the external fuel tank. The machine gun sound does cut in over the other sounds, and is not at all wimpy.
All figures fit in great in the two seats, but it sure is nice to have two properly outfitted pilots in the set. Now they just have to fight for the front seat. Slip Stream does have his name on the front, but we can change that!
