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.


Wings retracted.


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! 


Status: Available for trade
