I didn't see a thread devoted to this so .....
I picked up one of these today because I liked the design so much. Since I am 36 going on 11, I ripped it open to "play" with it. I noticed a few things.
- Overall, I liked the design and look of the vehicle. Nice colors, etc. HOWEVER. If you look at the package, it almost looks as if there is a seconday seat or at least an area for storage behind the seat ... which would have been awesome! BUT. When you open it up and look ... well.. there isn't one! It's a one seater with no storage area. WTF? It's like the toy in the picture isn't the one that is in the box. Plus the "working capture claw" is ...eh.
- Hated the stickers. First there wasn't enough of them, meaning that there was only about ten total. Second, the stickers which went on the back turbines will not stay to save your life. Third, the stickers which go into the cockpit were tiny.
- The figure is nice and it was neat to see a Cobra solider whose helmet came off ... but... I would have liked the sculpt more if the hemet sat lower on the head / face. It almost seems like it's sitting too high. Oh, and why give him a holster for a weapon.. but no weapon?!?
- Why don't they make the cool little catalogs anymore? I always loved those. I know they prob haven't done them in years... but man... I poured over those as a kid.
Overall, I liked it a lot and could imagine having a squad of them... but ... I think one will be enough.

Great vehicle and I agree about the lame turbine stickers - hence why I left them off.
