In the Rise of Cobra line, Hasbro made the Rockslide A.T.A.V. The vehicle is really cool, but they really made a boo boo when they did the box design.
Nowhere on the box do they show that there is a cockpit inside Rockslide. I think there were a lot of people, including me, who were turned off from the figure since it looks like the figure has to ride on this over-sized snow mobile, and would look pretty silly doing so.
They show all of the other great features on the back, but the biggest oversight is the lack of notification that the top canopy opens so Snow Job can climb inside.
Well, turns out is actually is a cool vehicle. And the best part? There are lots of them still at Toys R Us, and they are on clearance, and this past week they were on an additional percentage off on top of the clearance price. I think with so many left over, it had to be the poor box design that did them in. All the better for the rest of us.
A high-tech vehicle built for the snow. Riding in comfort while speeding across the arctic. Of course the back of the cockpit is open, so it is probably not really that comfortable.
Cockpit opens so Snow Job can climb right in. He fits in just right, and the canopy can even be closed with his hood on. Too often, canopys do not close because of added head wear. Thankfully not in this case.
The front skis turn to the left and right. They have a pretty nice suspension under the body that makes them really solid.
The rear track raises and lowers and makes for a true “all-terrain” vehicle. The Rockslide would easily be able to climb over some pretty tough terrain.
As you can see, with it parked next to the Wolf Hound, that this is not piddly little snow mobile. This is a major piece of hardware. Missiles, machine guns, and more missiles make this a great tool for the Joe forces.
