G.I.Joe: Valor vs. Venom Neutralizer & Battle Hornet
GI Joe: Jay Cochran - 2004.07.08
Tazzzman sends us these images and write-up on the new G.I.Joe: Valor vs. Venom Neutralizer & Battle Hornet.




After removing all of the twist ties for both vehicles I noticed that the Battle Hornet had sounds (two different ones) - one sound can be activated by pressing the yellow button on the left hand side (sounds like it is flying) and the other button is located on top of the craft, the black button (sounds like it is taking off). In addition to pressing the black button the landing legs come up (for a split second) too. The Battle Hornet also comes with 3 missiles; one can be loaded into the bottom launcher and launched using the little button at the bottom of the launcher. The cockpit is pretty cool as there is a sticker inside that looks like the controls for the craft, the crafts cockpit hood is easily removable to put the neo viper inside to man the Battle Hornet and also is the only way to get him inside with out removing the hood as it only opens so big. The Hornet comes with the Neo Viper and does not include any weapons. I had a little fun with this vehicle placing it next two our flowers as well as my chili plant (he blends in nicely with both). When we were joking with HASBRO we asked them about the viper and they told us that he is supposed to be camouflaged in the sun. They said when you look up at the sun all you see is sun spots therefore providing the camouflage for the new viper and his craft.





Next is the Neutralizer with Backblast. After removing the twist ties for this vehicle (which was a pain since the ties have to be almost straight to pull them out of the vehicle) I noticed this one does not have sound (does not make any noises), instead the Neutralizer does not comes with a double barrel missile launcher! The way to launch the missiles is to press on the two gun cannons on top. There are two things that must be put together: 1) the radar (fits nicely in the back) and 2) the missiles into the cannons. The figure Backblast has a removable helmet and does not include any other weapons. The bottom of the vehicle has 4 wheels for mobility and I am not sure why there is a round circle with holes (to indicate sound), I looked everywhere to see where sound could be activated from and did not find any buttons. This vehicle can hold two people (one driving- sits at the top) and the other in the back.
