Avengers Iron Man Firestrike Assault Jet

Heres a short review of the recently released Avengers Iron Man Firestrike Assault Jet.



Out of the bos heres what we get.


The jet comes disassembled with parts of cannons and wings need to be put together.

Heres the jet assembled...

Its a direct repaint of the previously released Justice Jet from the Captain America movie toys. Only thia time the jet carries IM's colors (red, silver & gold).

It comes with the IM mkVI with only 5pt articulation as a pilot.

The figure has fair paint apps applied.
But in my opinion, hasbro should have included another figure to pilot this jet (maybe Hawkeye) as IM can already fly.

Decals are painted on the parts so sticker sheets is not included.

I specially like the big "A" decals of the wings.

Cockpit opens to allow IM (or any1:18 fig) to fit well inside.



At the bottom, mounted are the cannons with spring loaded missles that deploys once switches are pressed.

Cannons can rotate 360degrees and can point laterally in different directions.

Also under the jet, the landing gears at front can be deployed.

But once deployed, cannons can no longer rotate as the wheels block the way.

One gripe I have is that landing gears are only available at the front.
The wings provide the means to land. And by the looks of it, its not supposed to roll to park.

Another feature of the jet is the VTOL blades which swings to simulate vertical take-off and landing.


During flight it swings to simulate forward movement on air.


Comparisons? Heres the jet with other similar sized GI Joe alpha class vehicles...


At comparison, its quite bigger than the alpha class vehicles.

As for comparibility with my Joeverse, the jet fits the Cobra armory with other similar colored vehicles.


Im definitely liking this vehicle.
In terms of playability, it fits well in my MU and Joeverse.
In terms of value, a one seater jet this size is big compared with other alpha class vehicles at the same price.
The pilot, hasbro should have included a non-flying pilot fig (ie Hawkeye or Blackwidow).


I'd recommend this to a MU collector.
Pick this before you get CA's Goliath.

This is one mean jet figther...

Cool review. Thanks.

I agree it should have had a different pilot. Hasbro should also start making SHIELD (versions) of vehicles with SHIELD agents. Hydra too.

I have two of these and it is PERFECT as an Iron Grenadier "flying submarine", MARS's answer to GIJOE's SHARC and COBRA's Mantis.

Trust me!

This is a fun vehicle, definitely better than the Cap version. Fairly rugged too.

Not to nitpick but the alpha vehicles were cheaper than I have seen this thing priced. ($14 vs. $19 for the jet).

Being a straight repaint I say pass an wait for clearence, not worth it for something already released.

here in the philippines, alpha vehicles are priced at 1,000Php SRP...
this vehicle with its size, IMO, is worth for the same price of 1,000Php...
1USD = 44Php
