Thanks for the review and you are right on the money. I bought one today, I've wanted this since we got info from Toy Fair. The vehicle's cool but I was let down with the figure. It's just BLUE no detail paints we added it to break up all that blue. And, yes the helmet should have been removeable. $24.99 is a lot for a Joe vehicle so I was expecting a lot more. I think it should have been $17.99 maybe even $19.99 and that's pushing it's, definitly not worth $24.99 especially since California got hit with another sales tax increase two days ago. If you get one vehicle I recommend it but "lil Joey" has gonna have to do extra chores for this baby.

The Motor-Viper is pretty good. With some paintwork, and silver on the visor, you can make him look pretty close to a 25th interpretation. I'm just not gonna risk butchering mine just yet.

Here is what you can do with the Motor-Viper.
he is still a WIP and by no means complete.
I will most likely build another one using and ARAH head in the near future. Right now I need to find a place that sells Testors paints and pick up a darker blue to match his chest so I can paint the hands, boots and vest and the other parts of the helmet and the thigh pads. I will also add some gun holsters to both legs and finish the visor in silver and make the light blue dark blue.
I may also lighten the blue I have used for my next one although I dont mind this tone.
let me know what you think
In the end, you'll see my name carved in stone...

When I'm through, they'll scrape you off the wall with a squeegee!

Nice review, cool looking vehicle. I like the driver figure, but think he needs a bit more paint, especially around the helmet.

I hope they repaint the motor viper in some form down the road and give him the holsters.

Is the figure's visor slanted like the RAH or is it just like one of those standard CP Hawk/Flash ones?
