I looked at that today and thought I'd only get it to get that Strato-Viper. It's close to the original colors and I don't have to get that lame-ass version of the Night Raven to get it either. It's still $10 but maybe after X-mas when my wife is lettin me buy stuff without her griping...

I picked 2 of these and 2 of the Serpent Armor sets a few days ago. 1 of each for me and my 8 year old for Christmas. I loved this thing as a kid. It was given to me from a friend and it was missing the missiles and the handle control part but it was still awesome.
Edit: I just opened mine and it's awesome. Brought back a lot of memories. My back peg actually fits really snug on mine. He can't fully hold the controls though but I have the gun in one hand. Looks cool.

Another great review and set of pics.
Definitely want to pick this up when i get the chance. This one and the Wet-Suit/Dragonfish are the only ones I've seen at retail so far. Still keeping a weather eye out for the Serpent Armor.
Check out photos of my collection (G.I. Joe, Simpsons, G Gundam, Transformers, Star Wars and MUSCLE Things):

I bought two of those Strato Vipers from WS a long time ago. I'm not sure I need any more.

Stupid question time (didn't wanna start another thread just for this):
I opened my Snake Armor last night. This is the first of these exclusives that I've bought and I noticed that there was a box with the MARS logo on it. I opened the box to reveal --- nothing. Should there have been something in there? If not, what is it for? I thought maybe it would be like the Star Wars figures with the weapons locker. But not in mine, apparently. Anyway, did I miss something?

^ Your not missing anything. The suitcases never had anything inside other than a website addy (I believe when hey first started). It's more a packaging aesthetic than anything else. Your not missing anything inside.

As for the Rocket Pack...lots of fond memories there. It's really one of Cobra's most ridiculous vehicles (if you can even call it that). Too heavy for anyone to wear on their back (unless it were made of tinfoil or something), no visible means of landing safely (I guess maybe a water landing would be possible, but still not very safe), and just a little bit of weaponry. I cannot figure out any logical use for these except as suicide machines, they simply make no sense at all.
But I love 'em anyway.
