Having real all the posts, it seems while they were honest by showing the fig in relation to the 'jet', Hasbro kinda shot themselves in the foot. I say that because it shows the scale. Without the fig, I would have been crazy-bouncing to get my hands on the thing. Yeah, I'd be shot down when I say the actual item, but at least I wouldn't have thought they are just mocking us!
The original was worth the $50 plus price tag this is should have been! Like I said, the thing was frickin' huge! AND it came with the solo-jet! This thing IS the solo-jet!
I actually like the night raven. I think I might buy two.
Is that a MOTOR-VIPER?? He looks cool and bulky.
That MARS Night Raven is half the size of the Original COBRA Night Raven....but it looks cool anyway. Gonna look for them if they ever get released here in my Country.
loving the nightraven...i am gonna get it for sure.
Ice Saber (or whatever they are going to call it): That mold was one of the better ones at the tail end, so its not such a bad bolster vehicle. But who ist he guy on it? He looks like a Cobra....
Skimobile thingy: Its visually interesting. On one hand, it looks oddly futuristic, but on the other it seems to work anyway. Wonder what the "cockpit" looks like.
Snow Job: The same, oddly, goes for Snow Job. The green is weird, but not bad.
Scarab: That is NOT a Cobra vehicle. It doesn't fit. It looks to "realistic". Also, it makes me think its going to either have a motor (ala M.O.B.A.T.) or be full of sound parts (ala the Ringneck).
Motor-Viper: I like how they used the vest to give him a "correct" uniform. Too bad the legs don't work. Maybe Wild Bill's legs woulda been better (give him the guns like the original). The helmet makes me thing "Alley Viper".
It looks alright, but there's just something about it thats...off. I'm not even sure what it is.
Something else to consider is that it also has lights and sounds. The Thunderwing was a good vehicle with the action features hidden well. I think this one works in that respect. The missiles in the engines are a little weird, but not a bad thing.
As for the size, most liklely they didn't have the original mold, so this is an homage (I wonder if we can get a Sky Raven later). In that respect, again, it works, but Arrow has a point about the timidity they are showing with this.
Makes you wonder how "big" the PItt actually will be....
can't wait to get my hands on that night raven . looks sweet .
btw yojobro82 look again at the cockpit unlike the original raven this one seats well one.though i agree the pilot looks like he may have trouble sitting in the thing
I just hope they do a movie style HISS even if its not in the movie . heck that didn't stop them using TF that weren't in the movie to make extra movieline figures
Well guys, I thought I'd show this here first.
Some of my sources outside of the US have just sent me pictures of another new toy from the movie line.
I now present to you - GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra Skystriker!

I will take two of each. If the Raven is in $25-30 (thought it), might even take 3....its close enough to the orginal. Just cant tell if its a one or two seater. Two seater you can plug in the red Strato-Viper, coming in the two pack. My son will reap the rewards with my passion of GI JOE collecting.
awe man.. I am BUMMED
I thought it was going to be the real Night Raven.
It IS the real Night Raven, the real MOVIE Night Raven.
It baffles me to no end to see fans hark that this "isn't the original toy" when Hasbro made no guarantees of such. In fact, expecting the original mold would have been foolhardy to begin with since you figure Hasbro is going to use a movie toyline to, y'know, support the movie.
mmk.. you done sticking up for Hasbro now?
I never said they promised to use the old Nightraven.
I was just hoping that it would be because we have already seen that they are going to reuse a few original vehicles in the "MOVIE" line. So tell me again, why it would be foolhardy to think that they might reused the original Nightraven, when they have already shown that they will be using RAH molds for movie vehicles?
Ummm I am kinda iffy on the new Night Raven........ it looks better than most new molds..... but the "new" STing Raider prooves they can mold better than this. I am just not sure what is off on the NR but something bothers me. The rest is kinda trashy.
