AirWolf (Normal Version)
Review by AJProDie-Cast
Airwolf was an American television series that ran from 1984 until 1987. The program was centered around a high-tech military helicopter, code named Airwolf, and its crew as they undertook various missions, many involving espionage, with a Cold War theme.
This chogokin is a 1/48 scale toy released in 2006. There were four versions: normal (this one navy/grey), weathering, black/white, black/white weathering, and flat black. I had all version at one time or another but settled on the original like the TV show.
On the back of the box it lists all its accessories.
The Copter has great lines and looks great in any collection.
The helicopter takes 2 AAA batteries and both front and back blades rotate.
It also has retractable landing gears that work with a sliding (in back) hook system.
Little sunburst flap (hard to see , never mind to open, near red dot [bottom left]).
Both doors open and there is even a cute little figure in the pilot seat.
Finally, a stand with an Airwolf insignia that tilts into various flight angles.
If you can track it down, grab it. I bought mine for around $85 three years ago and as this post occurs I had long sold off all other versions and regret it...they are going for like $200 plus dollars right now and of course I miss them.
