Default True Heroes Wolf review

Sentinel 1
Wolf

Wolf is the actual name of the figure and not the motorcycle that is included. The vehicle is simply called Motorbike. While the box does not give any indication of this the Toys R Us site does. The site also gives a bio of the figure much like the G.I. Joe file cards. The only features the bike has are rolling wheels. There are tabs on the sides of the vehicle which something did attach to it. The bike itself was a repaint of the Dino Valley motorbike that included a capture net side car. Both bikes appear to be based off the Cobra Coil Cycle released in G.I. Joe Spy Troops. The bike appears out of scale with 3 3/4" figures making them appear child like. This was the same issue with the Coil Cycle but it does fit the bigger new sculpt and 25th anniversary figures very well. As you will see down below it works well as Firefly's mode of transportation.

The figure included with the bike is Wolf he has 9 points of articulation and includes a weapon tree and dog tags. Each of these sets are going for $6.99 and Toys R Us.

it's more fitting for firefly but i still think it's somewhat oversized even for 25th anniv. joes. then again, i've seen some big oversized bikes in real life and i always wonder how people drive them since they are so bulky and huge. maybe you can find some weapons to attach on the sides. i wish they had added some actual weapons into the bike.

The slots on the side of the bike would be perfect for attaching weapons. I'll see what I can find.
