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!
