My review I'm new at this so here I go. First I would like to say this toy is big I have no room for it yet. Ok I took it out of the box and it was in a couple of pieces that you have to put together. Taking the pieces out of the box was not easy. Their was ties and string band all over the toy and box.

When I got everything together at last it was time to test the toy out. The toy does a lot for the money. 1) It can shoot missles out of what looks to be like a wing. 2) It takes 3 AA' batterys for lights and sounds. 3) Drops cage with snake eyes to go on missions. 4) Snake eyes can come off the cycle but I would not do that. 5) Blade wings can turn to make it look like you are going up or landing. 6) Lt. Stone fits in the dragonhawk but you have to stand him up a little to get his boots in first the make him sit down on the seat. 7) 3 3/4" toy will not fit in the dragonhawk or less you leave the hood open.

The file card I can not read because walmart put the sticker on top of it so I'll have to wait to fine away to take the sticker off the back of the box carefully. This is my first review ever please tell me how I did and how I can improve on the subject at hand? :eek:

I like the look, but if it won't fit a 3 3/4, it's wasted plastic to me. I think it looks good next to the properly scaled figure. Can the seats come out?

To me, Hasbro's just being stupid with this.

yeah, hasbro has no concept of the market as it pertains to collectors. I still see the 3 3/4" market going strong in many places and surprising the 8" sigma market this 2.5" market is going so they can get a reduce price for the cost of manufactured plastic they use to make the figures. So they can mark it and make a profit out of it. Which is too bad but hey thats business they say.

Over at generalsjoes.com in his review he did a step-by-step removal of the seats, and there was plenty of room for a vintage figure and likely a custom-made seat and instrument cluster.
