Really looking for opinions from people that bought it.
Is it worth it?
I'm interested in it. Have a set-up I want to do that would work better with the Ice Dagger.
The problem is that it's kind of plain looking. I don't like the gun tower aspect of it, but I like the rest of it.
How many troops can fit in the back?
How does it look with someone in the gun tower but the tower not up?
Any one got pics of it in "action" that they can post?
So, is the Ice Dagger worth getting?
If you bother to vote, please give reasons why you voted that way.

I say yes, but I'm waiting for one of the retailers to have a sale on Bravo vehicles first. I think it is just a cool looking vehicle and I like the way Arctic Beachhead looks ;)

Whats funny is that a week before the Ice Dagger was shown, I grabbed an extra arctic SE and slapped a Beachhead head on it.
Then I saw the RoC Frostbite.

I'm curious too, and I agree about waiting for a sale. Only problem is, I've seen the Ice Dagger far less than the other vehicles, as if it was in a 1.5 assorment or something. Hope it doesn't get phased out.
I'm torn on the driver, since he's actually really awesome, but kind of generic at the same time. I really like the HISS-like shape of the vehicle.
I haven't seen any reviews, or much excitement at all over this thing, probably since the mold was released as a DTC before, but I didint collect then since I disliked the figures. I did get a Rhino from the same time period, and I really like it and think the Ice Dagger's blue would match it well!
Sorry to not answer the question, I'm basically trying to give this thread a bump.

my son has a blast with it. I like, but it seems more like a Cobra vehicle. I would post pics but my attatchment meter is now full :( I vote:Buy it will make a cool snow army w/the Rock Sled and SnowCat

I buy for display purposes and the Ice Dagger looks ok (My girl prefers to keep everything in boxes for display). It is also a big vehicle and fills almost the entire box so you feel like you are getting your money's worth.
The way the nose of Frostbite is painted often makes it look crooked.
I have decided to more or less buy most of the ROC vehicles to avoid the need to agonize over whether to buy or not.
The only vehicles I did not like so far are the Pit toy which is too different from the movie, the Rhino (double vehicle) repaint which is too unrealistic, and the Ashiko transforming cycle which is too Transformers and also unrealistic.

I didnt buy it in its first incarnation ... and since i don't own it i cant verify my allegations but it has always looked somewhat cheaply made to me ... shell like; even like old school "razor back" cheap ... again i could be wrong its just the vibe its always given me

I think it's worth it. I dislike the paint job and the gun tower as well though. I think it would have been better to have it white and grey instead and the Gun Tower to be set higher then to have it spring out.
There is only 1 seat inside behind the gun tower. You might be able to fit more then one figure in if you use vintage ones, but I don't have any handy so I can't try it out.
All right, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

I had the same issue at first whether I wanted to buy it or not. But since I got it Im glad I did. Most Joe vehicles dont have a lot of room for riders other than the driver. Or they just have foot pegs, but this one fits plenty of guys and weapons. Plus it comes with frostbite.
