L.A.S.E.R. dropship, the main command vehicle for the Rangers!
Capable of transporting 5+ figures, and also Rockslide!
MISB, 2011. Toys"R"Us.
With awesome lines and a huge margin for custom artists, this aircraft seems to pick up some ideas from the UD4L Cheyenne Drop Ship, the colonial marines dropship from Aliens.
But just enough. Different, nonetheless. A spider-looking guy.
The whole body and tail design, the color and raw look... great!
Wings deploy to hover.
Included figures. One of each model. No accessories, though.
Included figure detail: Corporal Felix "The Eye" Ibanez. Reconnaissance Specialist. Highly skilled in determining location, composition, disposition, capabilities and activities of enemy committed forces.
Lights and sounds can be activated via 2 buttons producing the same sounds and effect. The sounds are the same as Rockslide and Nomad.
Aircraft opens up into command station!
Aircraft comes with a handle-like tail to perform flying moves and pick up Rockslide!
Storm can transport Rockslide (sold separately)!
The big challenge was understanding how to snap them together. Storm´s claws (landing gear) are hollow. Rockslide has 4 points to attach and you need to pull Storm´s "legs" outwards to provide room for the connection. Could be better if it was a clip movement of the touch and go sort.
As a whole, this aircraft is very cool. Fresh concept that picks Aliens and Avatar ideas and transforms them both into something new.
Rangers ready for battle!
