The Corps! 1997 ATK Command Vehicle

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Today we get to review the most controversial vehicle from Lanard. The central piece of a court battle between the toy line and General Motors/ AM General.


The 1997 "The Corps! Attack Vehicle 2 man response team - Command Vehicle" set.


Included figures: 1996-1998 Hammer and 1996-1998 Junkyard.


The sport bike. Another part of the Lanard´s bread and butter meal for their first 12 to 15 years of existence in the action figure market.


The Humvee. This vehicle is now a rare piece to own since its replacement by the new Command Vehicle, a totally non-Humvee lines armored vehicle now, since it was the major complaint which made Lanard Toys pay 1.3 million dollars to the major car companies.


Court battles and law suits aside, this is without a doubt, one of the best Humvees ever made for action figures.


It has it all, the looks, the guns and the hatches, the opening doors, antenna. And high suspension.


It fits 12 figures. 7 on the back and 5 inside.


Guns and opening central hatch. The cannon is removable (fortunately). It fires a spring-launched projectile.


With G.I.Joe. You can hardly ask for more.


Scale shot. A must. IF you can still find it.

    The o-ringed CORPS figures look better than the ones with the t-crotch nowadays.

    I bought this Humvee when it was first available 10 or 12 years ago. However, when I got it, it came with a Howitzer with lights and sounds. Aside from some of the PTE offerings and the GI Joe Humvees(both of which I have), this is one of the best "jeep-type" vehicles I own!
