Sorry the FF bike didn't work for you. I like it only as a display piece (admittedly quite a bit), but it does lack in actual play value.
That was pretty much the extent of my job while assigned to the team, but I got to wear this really cool looking reflective vest! lol
Between ROC and the bike, plus Maradona's "go see Man of Steel", I'm starting to think you guys are out to get me. ;)
Like I said, the bike is cool as a stationary escort for larger vehicles in a display. The action feature sucks, and the figure is crap if you want him in anything but the standard pose, on the bike. I can see how you didn't like it if you don't have a lot of Joes to display it with.
Roadblock makes a comment about training for a few months with Snake Eyes. He's got the hexagram tattoo (and he might even show it when he mentions Snake Eyes the first time, can't remember), but it's in black, on his upper arm, and mixed with other tattoos. It's implied that he thought it was cool and got it inked (the way a lot of Americans get tattoos of various Chinese or Japanese letters or words), but it's not marking him as a clan member.
I think I was expecting more of the experience I used to get with Joe bikes like the Silver Mirage, where they had more going on than they looked like. This thing is exactly what you see and nothing more, the weapons are underwhelming and the figure stinks, so it's really just a thing to look at for a moment.
Ugh, I don't remember that tattoo stuff, it's really cheeseball.
How have I never heard of this before? I want it so bad! This is what they should have released for Retaliation since Firefly's bike comes apart.
(Not $35 bad tho, that's the current ebay price.)
BTW, here are the ARAH vehicles I remember definitely having, the ones with asterisks are my favorites:
http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/01/nlc/ (had the Johnny Quest version, same item though)
http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/02/mantis/ (again, Johnny Quest version)
http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/10/steelmarauder/ (had the Sigma 6 version, same item)
I miss when Hasbro used to put out clever, fun vehicles in this line. That's what drove my interest, and I think when they slowed that quality is when the brand suffered.
That bike wasn't officially sold in the US. Some in Canadian tri-logo packaging wound up at Ross, where I got one.
It sucks beyond words. Easily one of the worst, if not THE worst, vehicle since the 25th line started.
Still, its companion vehicle, the awesome HISS Scout, was released with minor changes in the Retaliation line as the Tread Ripper Tank, so, yeah, no idea what they made a new, unique Firefly bike that resembles nothing from any incarnation.
Yes, I bought Flashpoint. It was worth it. I still haven't gotten any version of Retaliation, though. This current wave of Retaliation figures, wave 3.5, is exceptional... at least in my estimation. Twelve new figures in the case, with only Firefly and Flint being subpar, but with accessories to compensate for them. I really hope I can find these in store.
I had no desire to get Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, or Snake Eyes. But those accessories, wow!
Wait, is this the toy thread or the movie thread?
