It is supposed to be discrete til it deploys the weapons! It has to be a consumer vehicle!

MASK toys are cool at any scale! Although I'd have loved a proper 1/18th scale Rhino. Or a 1/18th truck of any sort TBH.

I've just watched a programme about real life armoured cars used to protect VIPs and for covert military operations (designed to appear to be regular vehicles) and they were surprisingly similar to the Cobra vehicle... they even showed one with a pop up minigun (not a spring loaded missile launcher but close!!)

I think it would be ace if all full-scale weaponry was spring-loaded.

Perhaps then our toys would come with real guns? ;)

Technically, the film appearance has both uses; the VIP protected is :baroness: and it also disguises itself as a normal vehicle.

I quite like this having seen the pics. Not keen on the figure though, and at £30 it's a bit steep.

Probably going to pick up the Ferret w/Scrap Iron and the Armadillo w/Thunder so far for the ROC vehicles.

The PIT though... It's just a giant green Rodimus Prime isn't it?
