I did the same to the rotor. I might cut down the peg.

Awesome pics, Shogi.
Glad to see that the rotor pieces and the housing werent internally remolded.
I'll be swapping this out for a spare vintage rotor I have laying in my parts bin
Nothing like being a genetic super soldier/Cobra emperor, and cutting your foot off cause some dumb Cobra tech couldnt put the hovercraft rotor *inside* its cowling, lol.

Thanks for the comparisons, Shogi. I was actually thinking of passing on all the new vehicles, but I think you may have sold me on that Vamp! This is very helpful to those of us on the fence concerning them.

Thanks for all of the pics! I believe that Rock 'n Roll and the RAM were the first Joe toys I had as a kid in 82/83 so those are must buys. I never owned a Flight Pod (the Joes got all the love as a kid, now that I'm "grown up" it's the opposite...I buy multiple Cobra items!) so it'll find a home in my toy office soon enough.
What I can't get over is the price. I guess that the Target vehicles spoiled me @ $10 a pop. $15 ain't bad at all considering single figures are now commanding $8. I just don't understand Hasbro's MSRP pricing strategy at all.

Nice comparisons. My classic V1 Vamp is upstairs and I can't be bothered bringing it down.
With the ease of upgrading, can an official Vamp II far away then?? Hope so, as I never had the tan version.
I also forgot how 'sparkly' the original Air Chariot was... think I prefer the new one.

Just got a Stinger off eBay and someone put a post that 25th figures do not fit on 84 Stinger. I put Baroness Wave 8 and 25th Stinger Driver they fit fine both with and w/o panels. Got an old one so I could customise MSV. Will prob get new Stinger once its released.
