Wired.com with HUGE news and movie vehicle pics!

Hidden in a corner of the internet that only a few toy geeks venture to, Wired.com has come up with a huge scoop!  Blogger “Geekdad” has gotten some official pictures of some new upcoming G.I. Joe: Rise of COBRA vehicles, including the never-before-seen Night Raven w/ Strato-Viper!  Also included are the Ice Dagger / Frostbite, the Rockslide ATAV w/ Snow Job, and the Scarab w/ Moto-Viper.

First of all, a HUGE kudos to Wired.com for getting the scoop, that’s some great info.  Secondly, take a look at that freaking Night Raven.  WOW.  That thing is pure G. O. L. D.

It takes a lot of design perspective from the original Night Raven, but styled and sculpted a lot more like the more modern day stuff.  Of course it’s smaller than the old school version, but wow, if that’s not one hell of a nice looking plane.  I LOVE it.  And hey, look!  The Scarab has an opening door, and looks to be a lot more realistic size than the pic in Toy Fare.  Another bonus.

Also a nice allotment of other figures as well.  I’m not sure why Strato-Viper isn’t in his more standard colors, but here’s hoping that more of those supposedly “cancelled” 25th Anniversary figures will see release in the movie line.  I think stuff like Thunderblast, Strato-Viper, and Moto-Viper are all really good signs.

  1. they should have given us a Night Raven for the 25th line like this with a Drone. But why they made it smaller I dont know, the vehicles are already too small. Once again, great concept, but disappointing results.

  2. I’m okay with the size of the Night Raven. It looks like it will fit in both Resolute and the 25th line while still being in scale with the line I actually collect: 3.75″ ARAH.

  3. The size seems great. It is smaller and now holding it in your hand, maneuvering it around the room will be a lot easier.It seems just right.

    The Ice-Dagger reminds me of Cobra with the navy blue at the back. It all pales to the Raven.
