First off I have not owned a Ram Cycle since the original one way back in 1982 so my comparison will be to that version and the new one.
Start off with the fact that I love the desert color over olvie drab green.
Handle bar turns front wheel. (iirc no handle bar on 82 ram, had to stick their hands inside the shell over the wheel)
Front headlight is Blue clear plastic not a sticker.
Rear tail light is clear red plastic not a sticker.
Saddle bags not just for show can store stuff in both. (comes with a hand gun in one of the saddle bags when purchased)
Side car has 2 posts to attach to bike over one on 82 ram.
Engine is silver plastic unit, not painted.
Side car has turning gattling gun (neat turn post in rear)
Umm well this is awkard I have none personally.
So over all love all the updates to the ram cycle. 9/10 (I never give anything a 10)
Hes not a great figure, but works well with this ram. Not too found of the digital camo pattern on his pants. Would have prefered a more traditional desert camo style. Love the sand-blasted look to the Impact armor torso and arms. Has nice striking blue eyes and a good head scalp (think its TRU's RoC Firefly).
Comes with rifle and helmet and as I said in the ram cycle portion a hand gun in one of the saddle bags.
Overall Sandstorm is a nice figure that I will have at least 4 of, so I may do a few head swaps to make a unit out of them. 8/10
Anyway thats my first review.
