im excited about the fang. i use all the vehicles for my rah figs. the claw i dont think will work but im hoping it will since i think it looks cool even though its not as big as the original. the figs inside are alright i guess. i like the air troopers red helmet. the awe striker is alright. i wanted to start collecting brown vehicles to start a desert force so this should work good.

In looking at the two figs - does anyone think they would look a bit better with their heads swapped? At least that Red Air Trooper Helmet would be better suited with the Viper Outfit.

Yeah, the Awestriker looks lame. The Fang looks OK, but the CLAW is a disappointment, unless the wheels are in the package to snap in, because it looks like the clips for them are there.
The figs are a major letdown. Leatherneck in mission Brazil colors with a Buzzer torso? I may get the Fang/Claw set, but I'm passing on the AWE striker. I've got a bunch already (and honestly I like the PTE buggy better).

I really want to know when the Lift-Ticket vehicle wave is coming out.
This is the first wave that leaves me really cold.

what bugs me about the awe striker in particular, is the same problem i have with the fang pilot, choice/use of colors. alone, a tan awe striker would have been cool. toss in the odd grey wheels and matching grey engine cover and you have something that looks like more of a junk yard left over. if anything, it should be easy to correct with some paint... a quick prepaint will make it all look much better. i've already done a desert vamp which i think turned out very well.
i also agree, i don't feel you have to go all rainbrow bight to appeal to kids. lets give them a bit more credit. they were smart enough to leave the line with the previous color fiasco's in the 90's. my 4 yr old likes the more simplistic figures over multi colored figures as well. his recent favorites, any black ninja, snow serpent, and crimson guard. he takes these guys to sleep with him.

Send me all your unwanted Vipers and Air Troopers. They look fine to me. Since when are the normal cobra colors of red and blue crazy bright colors for kids? I've never seen a bigger group of whiners in my life. If you don't like the figures / sets and can't see the value in 2 vehicles plus 2 figures for $15 regardless of what the figures are, don't buy it. If your so obsessive that you HAVE to buy everything no mater how much you hate it, that is not Hasbro's fault, it's all on you. Seek counseling.
