Some COBRA Gunship pictures on ACToys.net

One of the more underwhelming toys coming in the Rise of COBRA line, in my opinion, is the COBRA Gunship.  It looks mostly like a helicopter with no rotors and no real physical way to fly, yet is shown in trailers whipping through the sky.  How exactly does that work?  Well, I suppose it’s no more out of the ordinary than Trubble Bubbles, etc…  but one thing this picture showed me is the size of the Gunship.  I don’t know why, but I didn’t realize it was so large.  That actually impresses me a bit more, though I’m still not wild about the whole look of the vehicle.

Anyway, check out this thread on AC Toys, or check out the trio of images below.

  1. How could a vehicle of that size stay in the air without any visible signs of propulsion? It can just levitate and fly like that? I always liked the vehicle, but always questioned it’s ability to fly. Guess that would be explained in the movie.I love the size.

    It’s sleek shape makes it look more like a submersible than a flight pod.

  2. I’ll be getting a few of these. The fact that it’s so Dragonhawk-like sells it for me. Love it love it love it!!!

  3. While the whole “helicopter without rotors” look is a bit odd, it does avoid a classic problem of Joe helicopters, in that it has no rotors to break or bend.

    My Tomahawk had all it’s blades broken fairly rapidly from play and haphazard storage as a kid, and so thereafter I basically just ignored their absence. I’m sure that kids nowadays (the target audience of the movie line, I’m sure we all remember) can either imagine the non-existent blades… or buy in to whatever explanation the movie cooks up to justify it.

  4. Cool concept for a vehicle. Not really excited about the pea shooter gun on the front. Also, Destro looks kinda big next to it (like he caught something on his shoe or something :P)
