As I always like to quote my good friend Chad on things here is the comment he made about the G.I. Joe Retaliation Ninja Combat Cruiser when I sent him a picture of it…” Well that’s not very Ninja-Like”.
And to be honest it isn’t and I do feel as much as i am excited about the latest wave of Joe toys a lot of it is very “Ninja Heavy” which can be a good thing and or a bad thing I guess.
Anyway regardless I do really like this vehicle and it will make for a nice way to finally get a few more of my Joes out and on display aboard the Cosmic Ark and I really have been wanting to add more things like this to my collection so it’s a win all-around.
Like with the Cobra Crimson H.I.S.S. Tank I showed on the blog a short while ago I decided to take a few extra pictures to share and as you can see it has those dreaded decals I hate but the assembly of it was super easy and simple.
If I were to have one thing I could say I don’t like with this is the included action figure Night Fox who is little more than disappointing to me because of it’s limited articulation and lack of more colors.
I know he is supposed to be more of a Stealth Ops type of character but come on they could of not gave him some red color in his goggles or something? I think I would rather of seen a new version of Low-Light be the included figure here.
But beyond my Night Fox and decals gripes this really is a very nice addition to my G.I. Joe collection which as I stated will be used as a chance to get a few of my Joes out on display.
And will I be buying more vehicles for my “Cosmic Ark Army” ? I want to with me taking some heavy looks into more of the classics like the “Tiger Force”(which I just love) sets and am sure there will be a few modern bits too( Blue H.I.S.S. Tank and if I can find one the V.A.M.P. MK-II).
Looks like the Joe Team is off on another mission and will be riding in style in the Ninja Cruiser now which sure beats taking the bus which I hear Flint hates riding on because he always forgets his bus pass and never has the right amount of change on him for his fare….Yo Joe!
