Soldier Force A10 Air Strike - UPDATED!

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Bought in France during Christmas (2008), it was a very hard to find item. A precious A10 (G.I.Joe Rattlers included, our collection must have around half a dozen now) and very realistic details. A gem!


One of Chap Mei collector´s "Holy Grails". And for some time thought to be but a prototype for package pictures.


Included items. Not many accessories, but who cares? That A-10 was all it was needed!


A great machine, with notorious similarities to G.I.Joe´s 1984 Cobra Rattler mold.


 The "Warthog" is a very appreciated aircraft for not only it represents air to ground "God´s wrath", but it´s a different airplane in so many aspects it cannot be mistaken by any other. As a toy, this one is near perfection.


Landing gear detail and weapons nests. As the real thing, this A-10 comes fully loaded and ready for tank busting.


The chin gun is not an incorporated 7-barrel Avenger, but a nice twist in design.


The weak spot here is the cockpit. I can´t understand where they were headed. Strangest of all that is strange, the actual CM figure won´t fit the airplane.


Engines detail (great).


... and interesting cockpit bubble turret gun incorporation. The gun goes through it when open.


Figure: Captain Red A-6


 Figure: "Lieutenant Cooper - Tank Commander".


This is a marvelous piece of toy engineering and if you can find it, be sure to GET IT!


The camouflage looks awesome, the scale (for a toy) is fairly accurate.

 
Weapons array.


Bombs can be dropped and missiles shot away!


Really big tanks/bombs.


Very nice graphics...


Only a couple of accessories for this set, but the main attraction is the A-10!


But this backpack / parachute is one of the most decently 1:18 scaled backpacks from Chap Mei!  And looks sweet!


A-10s... always in pairs!

    I really dong like the hatch behind the pilot's seat. It doesn't belong there.

    Well, we can say the very same thing about Hasbro´s ´84 Rattler, ´88 Tiger Rat and ´97 Thunderbolt. Main difference in these (considering your remark) is that Hasbro´s toys have a closed gunner canopy. And Chap Mei´s is open... WWII style. But we´ll manage to set them side by side for comparison in the near future. You´ll see how cool this jet really is.

    This plane actually looks like a repaint/retooling of the plane in the Terminator Salvation toyline. If it wasnt for the electronics added, I would have thought it was an exact repaint.

    Hi Paolo,
    This baby is about 2 times the size of the terminator version.

    I bought a loose A10 fr my local toy specialty shop. It was painted blue to look like a cobra rattler. Missing its missile array and the important chin gun. A week later I tried the net to find out what toyline dis A10 belonged to... which led me to your site. Holy smoke, now I know wat it really looks like! What the sealed box looks like! And the weapons! Oh man, had I known...
