Too quiet?

The volume on your video is soooooooo quiet that I had to turn my volume all the way up to even hear you whisper! Is that just me?

Good review, nice toy. I might have gotten this too... but I didn't get any of them. Thanks for inserting the original CM too!

When I first saw this, I

When I first saw this, I could have sworn I remembered it, but if it came out in '93, I'd have been 18 and long past my initial toy phase. The 'copter is neat, but I agree, the key gimmick is forced and a bit silly.

I *think* I vaguely remember key-activated gimmicky Hot Wheels toys, but this doesn't ring any bells. Great review of a toy that looks like a blast.

At first as was a bit apprehensive about being so uninterested in the video, but in retrospect is provides a nice contrast between the reality and the EXTREEEEEEEEEEEEEEME commercial.

I dont know if you remember this show that aired in the 80's, it was called the highwayman. There were these guys who traveled in big trucks that contained a helicopter in one and a sportscar in another one. This toy is similar to the first truck :)

Ah, I remember the show... the design was great... (almost) ordinary vehicle turns to battle mode... a bit MASK-que to me...

Ha...Highwayman! Classic!

Ha...Highwayman! Classic! Poor Sam Jones... ;)

Anyway, like others have mentioned, this totally reminds me of Slingshot from M.A.S.K.
