Great review! This actually looks slightly better than I initially thought. I originally thought the big engines on the wings were rocket launchers, but now I see that they are not.
I still think the Mantis Sub and Snarler Cycle are the winners of this wave.

It's projectiles are a poor color decision, but are easily substituted with those packed in with Elite Vipers (a kind of semi-transparent ice-blue color.) These projectiles look loads better respective to the Sky Sweeper's color scheme.

Looks like the best value of the roc alpha class. At least from the perspective of having a new tooled modern era firebat with pilot for the same price as the old one.
I'm also pleased they gave air raid the rifle and helmet from resolute 5-pack duke. poor roc thunderblast just got a helmet.

Thanks for the shot of the filecard, Speedocub!!
As much as I'm saddened by the changes of the filenames and codenames.....I'll look at the bright side. At least I finally have an "official" codename for Airborne 2/Sixx....LOL!

I don't think I am going to buy it, as I have 2 red Firebats already, but it does look like the season 1 Firebats from the cartoon before they made a toy of them, they were blue. I wonder if that homage was intentional

I actually like the blue, as that's what the Firebat looked like early on in the cartoon, but what about all that extra stuff attached to it? I was under the impression it could be easily taken off? Is that not the case?
