Just wanted to get peoples opinions on the Vamp, Hiss, Firebat and the dragon hawk. All seem pretty cool to me except the vamp.

Don't know about the others but the VAMP is awesome. I've cutomized it for 3.75" Joes and it's one of my new favorite vehicles. Same size as the original VAMPS. You just have to remove the seats and you can squeeze in a Joe.

I own most of the vehicles from this line and I would have to say that the VAMP is one of my favorites. The other that were mentioned are great vehicles too. Truth me told, I've like all the vehicles that were released for this line.:D

I enjoy both versions of the Vamp a lot. I wish this line would continue. I like it much more than the larger S6 scale.

I love the Firebat. It looks great next to the Night Raven, like the Night Raven's little brother or something. It doesn't look totally out of place with the 3 3/4" vehicles for size. I use it as an unmanned drone plane.

I'm a big fan of the design schematics for the 2.5" scale.... I've got reviews of you're interested:

Night Ops VAMP (http://s6c.joebattlelines.com/toys/reviews/2inch/2006/deluxe/wave1/vamp.htm)

Firebat (http://s6c.joebattlelines.com/toys/reviews/2inch/2006/deluxe/wave1/firebat.htm)

Dragonhawk (http://s6c.joebattlelines.com/toys/reviews/2inch/2006/deluxe/wave1/dragonhawk.htm)

Those are three of the coolest of the bunch, in my opinion...

Hey General, you have a great review of the VAMP. However you say that it doesn't seem to be compatable with 3.75" figs. I've found that with just a little modification it's the perfect addition to my 3.75" motorpool. Just unscrew the screws on the bottom of the vamp open it up and remove the seats. Gung Ho will fit in there just as well as he would with the original VAMP. There isn't much head-room and it's a bit of a tight squeeze but thats the same with the original as well. Also now it doesn't have a seat but oh well.
Actually I'm convinced that it was designed for the 3.75" line. It's pretty much the same scale as the original Vamp and the steering wheel is much too large for the Sigma figures. Also as I've said before it looks great next to the Rhino.
Sorry if everybody's sick of my praise of the Night-Ops VAMP but I think it's great and I want everyone to know what a great vehicle it is for 3.75" figures.

Thanks very much for the feedback! I definitely understand there is great potential for the VAMP to be minorly altered for the 3 3/4" figures, I just tried to base my reviews on the product straight out of the box. Out of the box, the VAMP is really too small for 3 3/4...sure, with a bit of customization, it will work, but for folks who want to open the box and use it as a 3 3/4" vehicle, it just won't work in that regard.

I defintely like these much more than the larger sigma six figures. I wish they could come up with some fresh designs for the 3 3/4 line.

I've been pretty impressed with all of the vehicles for the small-scale Sigma 6 line. I haven't opened my Dragonhawk yet, so I can't really give feedback on that, but the others are quite cool, particularly the 10-15 dollar assortment. In my opinion, the HISS is actually the standout of this assortment. If I had to grade them on a scale of 1-10, I'd basicall rathe the vehicles as follows:

-Night-Ops Vamp: 8
-Firebat: 7 (very cool design, but the cone-shaped missile launching action is just kind of odd).

-Joe Mech (I've forgotten the exact name): 8
-HISS: 9
-Arctic VAMP: 7

Very cool vehicles, even at original price, but with Target clearing some of them out, they're an even better deal.

I agree with IlliniJoe. I wish Hasbro would put some more design work like this into some more new vehicles for the 3 3/4 inch line. The vehicles they issued in the DTC line were pretty darn good, I don;t know why they stopped. In fact, I'd like to see these vehicle designs issued for the 3 3/4 inch line (the HISS basically has been already, in the DTC line). It's a shame that, from what I've heard, we'll probably just be getting one more series out of the Mission Scale line.
