Face to face: Cobra´s and Chap Mei´s first 1-seat helicopters.
The inspiration and the "evolution".
Chap Mei´s bird is bigger in size. Both lenght and height. However, the main rotor blades are shorter.
Hasbro´s F.A.N.G. is well equiped with 4 rockets, 1 bomb and 1 laser nose cannon against CM´s vehicle which carries 2 missiles and 1 manual double barrelled gun.
The design is very similar, but in some cases, the "underdog" actually looks more modern. Also, while Hasbro´s helicopter has foot pegs on its skids for 2 more figures, Chap Mei´s has one handle/ hook placement for equipment and personnel lifting.
Especially in this color, an absolute must for Cobra fans. The size is perfect and it even fits the "modern" joes.
