I assumed for such a complex-looking vehicle, at a scale for 3.75" figures, the box might be bigger. But no, it's actually smaller, and quite compact.

Let rip into it...

The assembly is fast and easy. Most of the joints just click-on.

For a toy, this vehicle is highly detailed, and the weathering effects are great. The articulation is top-notch too, with either tight joints or click-types.

I have yet to test out the included i-TAG for webcam. Probably will do that when I have the time...

In the meantime, to end off this short review, here's more pics...

Thanks for reading. :twisted:
