I don't know man, the Python conquest is pretty sharp. Whatever they lacked on the Tiger Rat they made up for on the Conquest.

They both look good. Why does everybody bag on the Tiger Rat, haha.
Alley Viper attached to the Strike Team Urban Division 82nd.
Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

The PP theme isn't the coolest, but I actually like the TF theme. But I like both for their garish color schemes!

I picked up both planes yesterday but when i got home I thought do I really like these? I Got out of collecting before the original TF or PP showed up, so they weren't a must have for me. But seeing the box art again was worth buying them for me. I guess I will leave them boxed and ponder on opening them later on.

Nobody seems to be buying these in stores. I'm not a fan of either although I was fond of my tf flint when I was a kid. I was born too late to get my hands on the first version though, and had to get the tf one through a trade. I had to settle for repaints then. Now I don't. They can all warm the pegs for all I care.

I want both, well, parts of both. But so far, I just can't seen to bring myself to buy them.
I don't want the Python Conquest jet. I only want the Python Viper, and to have to pay $25 for just him seems overpriced.
The Tiger Rat I will get. I hate the fact that Hasbro dropped the ball on the package of the jet with that p.o.s. figure though. On top of that, I have 2 vintage Tiger Rat's MSIB. But hell, for $25 I can't pass up padding my Tiger Force army.
So I'm split, want and detest them each a bit.

I kinda want the Conquest, if only for the viper, but do the Joes really need a VTOL A-10? It makes sense for Cobra because they can't have landing strips in their secret bases, but wouldn't the Joes be better off with a regular A-10 that can carry a bigger payload?

I originally wasn't going to get these repaint.
But after looking at it.... I became weak and just bought them.
I even had the employee go to the back and look for the Python (which she found), and I left with both.
I'm not sure if I'm going to keep them or not... I'm about 85% sure that I will.
Not really looking at it as an Elite subgroup... more of just each side capturing the other side's planes and repainting them and using them.... basically, a stolen repainted plane.
Looking for: 1x ROCC Missile

Holy crap thats deep! Its not that they needed it..I think Wild Bill was sent to steal it...ummm he made it back. The look on Duke's face when Wild Bill came back in a yellow and black stripped Rattler mustve been priceless......"Joes, I have bad news, we just cant get rid of this guy"
