I picked this up and didn't really think I was gonna like it....I could not be more wrong, the Raider itself is a great update on the original.
The reason I only gave it an 8 was the figures.
1) Do we really need yet another Copperhead? I mean I love the character but I think most of us have plenty of him already. A quick head swap and a few gear trades and it could easily have been a new character.
2) The Swamp-Viper....ugh you know for years I wanted an AVAC....now I ask you can we stop already? If we were gonna do lazy repaints of figures (which I'm not necessarily against) can we at least try....I mean would it have been that hard to use say the Croc Master head and the AVAC body? And maybe made the body have a better swamp like camo...that would have made the figure 100x better in my eyes.

Well according to USPS tracking I should be getting this Raider tomorrow,I'm looking forward to that - nice touches with the detailing on this one I think.Not liking Swamp Viper much at all though - custom fodder!!!!

Just got mine, and yes, it's much better in person.
I kind of like the red, reminds me of the Brazilian Water Moccasin. It's really more of a deep maroon, kind of like the Hydrofoil. I think of it as having originally been that colour, but camouflaged with green spray paint for swamp use.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!
Also looking to sell/trade Joes... Need Lego Futuron Monorail, Land Adventure, etc... http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...-t-thread.html

I do agree,it does have more of a dreadnok flare to it.I bought mine at TRU and I don't regret it.It's a great vehicle.Well,sense the Noks don't have a vehicle at the moment for the 25th ann stuff.
