What is this the worst vehicle ever? I have a ROC one still in the box. I've been reluctant to open it due to all the negativity. Other then being smaller then the original and the $40 price tag what is the big deal? If Hasbro had called it something other then NIGHT RAVEN and sold it for say $30 would you be buying it up and praising it? I needs ta know.....

I am also in the minority in that i love my vintage and I also really like the ROC version. i wanted to hate the movie toys... i really did. but now, except for the dennis quaid action figure, i like them.

I have two RoC Night Ravens open... with thoughts of a third. But I like to have vehicles in pairs... symmetry... it's a sickness My only gripe is the lack of rolling landing gear, other than that, I like it a lot. I like the updated look and I think the gimmik is OUTSTANDING! Sure, it could be a little bigger... but with the price it's already at, bigger would just mean more expensive.
The one thing I know I will be doing is switching out the pilot for the more ARAH accurate Strato-Viper from the 7pk... he was my favorite Cobra troop as a kid. I like the black and red over the black and silver. Someone mentioned using him as a specific character pilot... I like that idea... I'm gonna steal it
I just don't understand all the HATE coming from people on these new toys. Yes, they aren't the same toys we grew up with. Yes, the new stuff isn't ARAH accurate. Yes, the movie isn't canon.
Yes, Hasbro is trying to cater to old school fans. Yes, Hasbro is trying to cater to new school fans. I'm sure once the movie hits, kids will be clamoring for these things. A decent size military toy? Check. A pilot to go in it? Check. Lights and sound? Check. Tied to a movie? Check. Only $40? Check. Thanks mom and dad!! It's all there... what more could Hasbro do? Hasbro is doing what it can to please everyone it can.

Had the old one back in the day, I liked it fine but it doesn't hold the place in my heart like it does for some of you. I bought the new one because I liked getting a new cobra fighter (not because it's called the Night Raven) and I like it a lot. The pump action gimmick is silly but actuall kinda fun. It makes for fun strafing runs on ground forces, LOL. Overall i'd like it a lot better if it were a true black, but it's still a cool jet. This reminds me, I really need to get some AAs to try out the electronics.
Oh, and I really love the pilot because he looks way cooler in the Gunship cockpit than the Firefly does.

I never had the original, but I'm staying away from this one. However, I plan on betting a Crimson Hydra.

If I'm gonna shell that amount of money on that toy, I rather take that money and get the real Night Raven.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...
