Face to face, the outlaws rides!
G.I.Joe Dreadnok Cycle and Chap Mei Bad Guyz Cycle.
Similar concept, the main difference is in the number of wheels, Dreadnok Cycle is a trike and the Bad Guyz is a 2-wheeler. And over 20 years apart when it comes to release date.
They are both very cool looking material. The G.I.Joe model is better equipped, packing 2 missiles besides the gun turret.
The Chap Mei model turns the handlebar, while the Hasbro cycle turns the front wheel.
In the realm of 1:18 figures scale, this bike is virtually unusable, but the fact one can separate the gun nest...
It shows some potential as a terror drome-sort of gun emplacement. Or any high position defense for that matter.
If you choose a 5" figure line... then you have a perfect bike. And I mean perfect!
The Dreadnok Cycle comes out shinning from this duel, when it comes to 1:18 lines...

I can see what you mean about the Bad Guyz bike being out of 1/18, however I like it better than the Dreadnok cicle and use it with no restrain on the pictures.ReplyDelete
The Bad Guyz bike looks more like a gang bike than the Dreadnok one.
Well, it does have 20 years of evolution on its side... the detail shows. But considering the Dreadnoks had their cycle since 1987... IF the scale was accurate, or even near... it would be an awesome addition to any gang group. However, like said, for 5" figures it is a beautiful piece!ReplyDelete
