    action fleet-like ship Final Fantasy Copperhead

    First time out bargain hunting in months - Suncoast has Final Fantasy Copperhead Deluxe Playset, by BanDai. It's an Action Fleet-sized ship. Very nice looking. Sorta reminds me of a StarshipTroopers TAC Fighter / Aliens Drop Ship. Interesting use of hard plastic and rubbery wing pylons. Comes with four ever-so-slightly-smaller than AF figures, and two gray plastic parts I have absolutely NO IDEA what they do/where they go!!! Nothing in or on the box explains them. The ships are all in minty boxes, and marked at $19.95. I just had an instinct, and asked the cashier to scan one, and it came up as $4.99 (plus tax). Yeeee-freakin'-haaaaa!!!!! I bought 3, and there were still at least one or two more still left. I intend to keep two - one is already unboxed & on my shelf - and I want to keep one boxed, as well. But the other one I have is available, plus I'd be happy to go get any others that are left at Suncoast if any MM forum regulars would like one. The one I opened looks very nice next to the SW & SST Action Fleets. The boxed ones display nicely too. Although the box design is completely different from Action Fleet, it does have a clear window to see the ship - mainly from a top view.

    I'm gonna try to attach a zip of some scans I just took of the ship....
    If this works, you'll see top, front, side & bottom views. The bottom view has the nacelles pivoted to landing position, where small flaps rise at the trailing edge/bottom edge of the nacelles, revealing landing gear. The scans make the ship appear more avian than it looks in person.

    (added note: I just looked at the scans, and should mention that the side view is just slightly distorted towards the rear fuselage. The graphics on that section are not crooked like it shows. I was holding the ship sideways - in my unsupported hand during the scan process, and my hand didn't keep perfectly still.)
