I love the new RHINO, I think its a clever design and great utilitarian use of space. However, my one grip with the Helicopter. Its design is awesome but all the little connect holes they made for adding weapons to it takes away from it in my own opinion. Overkill with two in the fuselage and two on the gun turret when all you really need is two in the wings. Still you have to pull off the RHINO's missle defense to mount on the wings if you want to add that to the helicopter. Anybody out there discovering this dilemma as well??? Are there any other launchers or guns out there that can be mounted in those same holes, on the wing of the helicopter, without taking away from the RHINO???

The Rhino was part of the planned Robot Rebellion line, which was going to have figures, vehciles, and playsets with interchangeable weapons.
The line was scrapped for the Sigma Six line, and the Rhino, along with the new HISS, and the ROCC were still released in the short lived DTC line.
Anyways, a few of the weapons on the Rhino can be used on the ROCC, and a few figures from that line came with weapons that could be used on the ROCC, and the Night Ops Humvee which also came out in the DTC line.
Anyways, you can configure the weapons anyway you want on the Rhino, which is part of the fun.
You don't have to put them on the helicopter if you do not want to. You can also configure the weapons in such a way that it doesn't get in the way of the helicopter lifting up once you press the button.
You don't really have to arm the helicopter, it technically has a gun on the bottom front, so you don't have to take away from the Rhino.
Still, it's an awesome vehicle. One of the best designed in a long time.
I love that you can fit 11 figures in there.

When I get into casting, one of my plans is to cast multiples of the smaller R.H.I.N.O. gun - enough to fill every unused hole on both the ground & air vehicles.
Cobra's goin down!
Two things I really wish the R.H.I.N.O. could do: have the side doors open in such a way that you could drive with them open (revealing machine gun nests) & allowing access to at least some of the space the helicopter docks in after it's deployed.

Quick note on this, maybe most people know this but I didn't -- this is currently in stock at Target.com, so if (like me) you aren't finding it on the shelves, you can grab it easily that way. I haven't used them often in the past, but when I have, they've come through pretty quickly.
Really looking forward to this, and glad I never picked one up on the secondary market after missing its first release -- though it's still !#$#@$@# expensive!
