Black Dragon VTOL

I was surprised this morning when I found the Black Dragon VTOL at my local Wal-mart.  Happily surprised.  I had no interest in another VAMP, but the Black Dragon I had been silently awaiting it's arrival onto shelves.  So of course, I bought it.  $20.  Its price tag.  And worth every penny.  I love this thing.  I was surprised how much I did.  It has button features, and I am not a fan of these, but... they are not real gimmicky but more functional.  The "button 1" as the instructions call it pop the wings from "landing mode" to "Flight mode."

"Cool," I said aloud.  But it was followed by an "Oh Crap" as I pressed "button two" on mistake and 8 bombs dropped out of the thing and onto my lap and the floor.  "Button Two" drops all 8 bombs AND swings the cannon out of hiding.  Neat stuff.

The Figure isn't half bad either.  No removable helmet (always a minus) but all in all a good "Air Viper."  But it struck me in a happy way when the fig came with a gun, a stand, and a pre-cut file card, a well-designed one at that.  The Black Dragon is giving me hope that GI Joe is going to come back strong!  Now I just need my "Rock"block figure and Sci-Fi!!  Oh and don't forget a Techno Viper army!

  1. Where a small term is placed on the dial. Have a look at attached pics to see what I am talking about. Welcome to being swiss replica watches nerd. It is a valid requirement and Rolex has gone to extradordinary neasures to make this function usable to all who would endeavor in the aport. In use, an unnecessary replica watches for the wearer, considering the eye strain on a sunny day. and would be mostly unreadable on deck. I had to look closely at some of the replica watches sale but it appears that the inboard sections of the hour and minute hands are lumed. Sure hope so as otherwise the lumed hour makers are pretty hublot replica uk. While its pointy end also has lume so it can be read with accuracy. So both main hands can be read accurately in the dark. Some of that is hard to tell with the hand replica watches store in the photos. They are replica watches sold by shady dealers on the grey replica watches uk in close to unlimited quantity.
