That's a very cool idea!

Look at the old Korean War Bell "Bubble" helicopters" and then look at the Apache Cockpit. I think if the Hiss had a metal frame along the plexiglass, it would have been ok. But for a Tank (which is usually the target of larger caliber Ordance than a helo or plane) straight Plexiglass is NOT a good idea.

And I think the NEW hiss would benefit from a small slit in the cockpit. Yeah, new generation parascopes are cool, but like all electronics, they suffer from ONE fundamantal design flaw: THEY RELY ON POWER! One Jolting hit to a Hiss could probably knock the power out or at least damage the electronics enough to put the driver in the dark!

Very cool that you can get 1-1 contact. It's hard to decide what to ask them. Should it be for personal reasons ("When are we getting Major Barrage and Ice Cream Soldier???") vs community-based reasons ("Can you hook Sonneilon up with Lady Gaga?"; sorry, that's an inside joke with me and Hasbro). Still, either way, it's up to you and it's very cool you had good talk.

I seem to remember a few years ago, we came up with a list of questions for someone (it may have been Luke Ellison) to ask Hasbro. Anyway, you should write up all that you talked about it.

And can you get a case of JUST Jungle Vipers for the community here? lol

HA! I told you guys eons ago that the Hasbro crowd IS lurking here. Now the question is, with all the use of Predator and other sci-fi stuff HERE, did that sway them to go ultra cool? Anyway...

I think thats an awesome idea. I think a lot of us here could be testers for new products and give very valuable product info to the line. I like your idea Graham and maybe some of those shock troopers too!! Sorry I havent been very active lately. Busy with taking care of my 2 y/o and trying to work as much as possible. Glad you were able to make contact with the guy!! Hope to see some cool pics soon!!

ARCTIC REPAINT would be sweet, Cobra needs something to fight the Wolfhound. I might just paint one myself.
