View Full Version : I bought my first S6 2.5 vehicle set

Well I have to admit I was tempted yesterday in Toys R Us. I had stopped in with the hope of finding the Steel Brigade/Plague set and left with the 3 transformers and Destro and the Armor Mantis Mech.
It looked really cool in the package but when I got home it just wasn't what I was expecting. Everything comes apart on it with that magna-loc snap-loc stuff. The arms and legs of the mech have two elbow or knee joints each. Kind of insect like. It really just reminded me of a Robotech figure set.
Some other negatives: the Sticker art is lousey. The cobra emblems are sad to say the least.
Destro I have to admit looks cool; but the limited mobility makes him a dud in my opinion. Although I'm a Joe fan I don't think I will be supporting them much in the S6 2.5 arena.
Just thought I'd share my experience with you all.
Yo Joe!

I have to agree with you on this. I was highly disappointed in mine as well. Blasted thing keeps falling over. I had to use its arms to keep it falling over onto the Firebat.
