The vest bugs me, although I actually like Leatherneck better than most... I think he should have been in his classic deco though.
A modified Firefly vest (comic pack) could almost work... The stripes on the vest are on the wrong part, but the high collar could be trimmed lower, to go on top of a Gung Ho or Viper torso and work much better... A paint app could fix the vest to match closer to Leatherneck's original color/design...
The skull belt bugs me, as well. Not even a cover-up belt?

I'll be buying this one. I like the color scheme of the AWE...seems more like a sand terrain vehicle anyway. Everything doesn't have to be green!
Leatherneck looks decent, regardless of those horrid Duke arms.

I waited 20 years to get an A.W.E. Striker and got the Target Exclusive. I love it but just don't see the need to get another one. If there is anything we are sure of is that we'll get a repaint of Leatherneck so I'll wait until he comes out carded.
The only thing I don't dig on the Striker is the top cannon. Wish they'd updated it to either a more realistic looking TOW Missle, grenade launcher, or a heavy machine gun with pegs so a fig could man it. Never got the camera/laser sight on the passenger seat too. They should have mounted a light machine gun. Oh well, despite my complaints it still is cool to have an A.W.E.

I'm fairly new to the forum, but your AWE Striker custom is amazing. And if you're still selling it, I would really be interested in purchasing it. Please let me know. I've been working on some custom figures that would really, really work well with that AWE Striker. Thanks very much.
As for the item being reviewed, I cannot be more excited. Anyone remember the Desert Patrol Squad? Anyone recall that their logo was the silhouette of an AWE Striker in the desert between two palm trees? Where was the DPS's Awe Striker? I mean it should have been pretty important to the DPS given that it was the focal point of the whole logo! I've been an AWE Striker fan for years. As a kid, I just loved that the front wheel could steer. I thought it was a great toy, and what military situation isn't suitable for a good jeep? It was just an all around great replacement for the VAMP.
So the DPS finally gets it's AWE Striker. Way to go, Hasbro, it only took like 3.5 years. But I'm really excited. The DPS was a great set... great paint jobs on a great selection of characters. Now, with this AWE Striker and Leatherneck the DPS is even better. I'll buy several of them when I can find them. Just in time for the Holidays - Merry Christmas, Desert Patrol Squad!
