I think its awesome! They should produce more stuff like this! The Joe's need more stuff like this. Its very unassuming without the Cobra signage and then it strikes!
WANTS: 2 Main Rotor Blades for WPK Blackhawk Helo.

Looks pretty solid. I gave it an 8 because the rear of the vehicle doesn't open. It would have been nice if you could put figures in the back seat area. I haven't seen any of these at retail yet, but I will be picking one up.

It is soooo M.A.S.K. Look out Matt Trakker!
I had to have it. Great toy, the drivers hands fit on the steering wheel so nice.
Very close to the real thing. Rear wiper and power folding mirror inoperative. I wonder if it will start after sitting for two weeks. ;)
I miss my HISS driver.

I gave it a 9, I have 2 of them and they're some of the greatest Cobra Vehicles I've seen in a while IMO.
Back Seat woulda been nice though, but the M.A.S.K. element is so cool, guess you gotta make a sacrifice.

Just opened the box to get the figure out, and other than missing a weapon of any sorts, he's pretty awesome, despite being a bit monochromatic.
I actually like the lifting faceplate and the mouthpiece, it makes him more interesting. I still love the vintage one, but if they're going to update figures, I'd prefer them to do it like this. He's still lacking some paint apps, but all around, I think it's a good candidate for 25th-ing down the line as a repainted version, in more classic colors. And with perhaps a silver facemask.
I'm debating on painting the mask silver, the brush will definitely get taken to his armor to add the silver highlights, but he'll probably get some lighter blue on there too.
The SUV is cool too from what I see of it. I would have loved it as a kid. I am packing it up now to ship to Deckard in a trade, so I won't be keeping it, but it's a cool vehicle. The best from the ROC line so far.

I also gave the Steel Crusher a 9/10. To be honest, I wasn't excited about the vehicle until I read this review and some of the comments recently. Couldn't pass it up for $20 at TRU. Opened it today and I've enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. Great detail and love the rubber treads. A neo-viper just belongs in the hole dual-wielding his wicked guns.
It would have been a 10, but here's my gripe. I expected more from the two side, flip down missle bays. Everyone has seen the trailer and sees the missles fire in toward the rear of the vehicle. Why not go the extra mile here and have a couple of spring loaded launchers firing mini missles? That would have put this vehicle way over the top in my opinion. You can't even reverse the existing missles or the doors won't close. I don't want to tear mine up, but my idea is to detach and switch each of the panels, and wa-la, missles face the rear. Anyone else tried that. But, overall, what a sweet vehicle and driver combo.
Can't wait to get my hands on a RHINO and fight the Crusher\Gunship combo. Good times!!!
the joes i didn't blow up with M-80's, my dad gave away. ughh!
but the silver lining is that i can completely justify starting from scratch with the 25th line! now, if I can just keep my 5 year old from breakin' stuff. already replaced one awe striker! haha!

I bought all three of the bravo vehicles. And then returned the ice dagger and gunship. Those are really bad.
The Steel Crusher is my current generation favorite vehicle. Hiss Tanks look miniscule by comparison. Makes a fine get away vehicle for the store exclusive Firefly. Nitro Viper Rules. Just like firefly he does'nt say much he lets his premium driving speak for him.
I hope they do more transforming M.A.S.K. esq vehicles to play up the "Secret War" angle.
Transformering Helicopter/Jet and Cargo Plane/Oil Tanker truck.
Gas Station/ Vehicle Crusher Trap.

It's my favorite vehicle so far, great figure. Too bad there's a hole visible where the belt buckle should be.
