So much drama 'n the LBCs

As far as the vehicle, I'm highly-impressed. The Skyhawk was one of my FAVORITES as a kid, primarily because it was one of the few "classic" Joe vehicles besides Sarge's Triple T that didn't suck and was shown a lot in the cartoon.
I'm so glad it's an all-new sculpt. They took what was a cool vehicle as a kid, but kinda cheap, and turned it into a great representation of itself. It always bugged me as a kid that the "glass" wasn't there. Man, the Joes much have had to clean out the cockpit and the bugs out of their teeth quite a bit.
Never had the Moccasin, but I look forward to it.
I didn't even realize these guys were out yet!

Damn this is awesome. Nostalgia aside, I don't know why anyone would want the original over this. KICK ass Ghost H.A.W.K.! I am glad I waited all of these years to get a Skyhawk, this one is the best!

Lift Ticket looks like one of my friends who is in the military.
But its a cool figure. I see endless custom possibilities with it.
But as for the sky Hawk? Nah. It is too small. When is Hasbro going to give us some big vehicles? You know, like the rage/bugg/hammerhead.

Skyhawk was one of my first Joe toys, and was always a favorite. This is the one vehicle in the new line that I plan to get.
Lift ticket is looking like serious kitbash fodder, though.

as already mentioned... the "glass" is a huge improvement over the original...I always hated that too about the old school version (no glass).
as for Lift Ticket.... his face just says: "oops, I crapped my pants!"
yeah, sorry, that's all I can think of with that look that he has on his face LOL

3?? Ouch! I would rather take a smirk that is faithful to the original than a reused Gung-ho's head anytime or Tripwire's for that matter. Though the problem with the chin.. I have to wait & see it in my hands.
Adding handlebars to hold on to the Skyhawk would be nice.

Thanks for the great review, as always. I'm really looking forward to the sky hawk. I'll wait to pass judgment on Lift Ticket until I get him in hand.

Seriously, worthless arms that have plagued other releases, no backpack hole, diaper crotch, and heís pretty inaccurate to top it all off. I think that makes Duke easily the worst figure from this line.
