I recently dug my Thunderwing out of storage, dusted it off, and played with it a while. I was thinking about getting rid of it, but don't know that I can now. I'd forgotten how cool this jet was. The batteries were still good, so the voice commands and sound effects worked.
I agree with a previous post that it is a pretty stout plane, and not as sleek as it could be. It's also pretty heavy. But all in all it is awesome.
Any one else have it? What are your thoughts?

I got this clunky jet back when it was first released (it must be the TRU version b/c it has two pilots). The voices and action features are cool but the jet itself is hardly sleek and lacks the agile look that most jets incorporate.
All in all, a cool idea that leans more heavily towards the "toy" aspect and less towards realism. I would recommend this toy for any kid who enjoys GIJoe. As far as collectors are concerned, it depends on what would appeal to each one.

I don't have one currently, but I always thought it was one of the more impressive vehicles from the VvV line. It looks cool, and it also has alot of play-value for kids. I'm surprised Hasbro didn't re-release it with a new paint-scheme for ROC.

I have 3 of them in storage. Definitely one of my favorite vehicles. Last I checked they were pretty steep in price on Ebay. I paid full price my first one at retail and got the other 2 on clearance.

I love this jet. I even managed to get the blonde Slipstream prototype so I had 2 pilots for this too. Wish I still had it.
I always had the missile launcher tucked in so I don't really care about it.

I have this as it came with a lot I bought last year...my son discovered the huge cannon and said "is this supposed to be the gun?" I said I suppose it is, to which he said "no, this is the hood, it opens up to the engine so they can fix it"
I agree now with him...its the engine it's not a huge rotary cannon

I finally bought one last year. It's definitely a cool toy and looks nice on display.

I have one and it is the bomb-diggity. I love it, and if I wasn't already divorced, then I would leave my wife for it, lol! But seriously, it is a really fun toy and I would recommend it to anyone that still likes to play with toys.
