Today in my local Zellers I was  Shocked and  Cheesy to find the formerly Target Exclusive Tiger Rat and Python Conquest.  Right at the end of the isle, a whole stack of them.  Wait...this is the Modern Era Joe's not the ROC Joe's... Undecided...well that's Canada for ya.  Looks like Hasbro finally got some of these exclusives north of the border, and they were NOT in bilingual packaging either.  The box fronts also don't have "Only at Target" on them.

First the Tiger Rat, this is my very first Tiger Force vehicle, actually I never even had a single Tiger Force figure until the were redone for the Modern line.  Wild Bill comes with his cowboy hat, pilot helmet and his two revolvers.  He actually sits in the Tiger Rat with a little pushing and getting his legs to bend right.


Here Wild Bill and Flint are checking out the damage to the Tiger Rat.  Extra pannels that come with it, kinda lame and kinda neat at the same time.


One thing about the Tiger Rat is that its not very balanced, with its wings up (or no missiles) it tilts back, that is until you put Wild Bill in the cockpit and it sits back down, Flint thinks Bill needs to go on a diet.


Unfortunately the 25th/Modern Joe vehicles only came with American stickers, but thankfully I had some Canadian Flag stickers still on hand (from Cobrastickers.com) for my Canada's Elite customs.


Now on to the Python Conquest, which comes with a Python Viper who suffers from the same stupid hands as the other Vipers.


I never had a Conquest either when I was younger, or any Python vehicles or figures like Tiger Force.  It sits rather high and as the Viper found out it could use a ladder.


Someones been messing with the Python Conquests engines, looks like the Viper will need to take a look.  He also has a feeling he shouldn't have shot at the Tiger Rat...

And I appologize for any spelling errors, its late and normally I'd be going to bed right now, its past my bedtime.   Cheesy  Don't worry tomorrow I'll be back to the ROC line with...Heavy Duty...

Going to take a quick look at the Cobra Desert Assault Squad, and yes this pack did come out a couple of years ago but I'm poor and can only afford to buy these online every two years.  Thank god there aren't more of these assault packs...what...there is...dammit. 

The pack consists of some specialist Cobra Troopers, Crimson Guards and Major Bludd.  From left to right we have Crimson Guard Desert Infantry, Cobra Trooper Explosives Specialist, Cobra Officer Desert Specialist Officer, Major Bludd Mercenary, Cobra Trooper Flamethrower Specialist, Crimson Guard Desert Infantry, Cobra Trooper Hostile Environment Specialist.  Some of these guys gear is going to look familiar, Trip Wire's, Firefly's, Torch and Barbecue.  This is a very nice looking set, just like the Arctic Assault pack, they look like a team and suited for their environment.  Even Bludd has a scarf to keep that desert sand out of his stash.   

I give this extreme pack a Firefight Hit Firefight Hit Firefight Hit Firefight Hit out of 5.  The only problem with this pack is that a few of the figures can't hold their weapons very well.  I know big surprise eh.   Cheesy
