I picked up the Speederbike set yesterday. Love it, but there are some disappointments to it:
1. The power cell on mine is not completely circular, as if the piece wasn't completely solid when someone set it down after taking it from the mold.
2. The tarp or sack that sits behind the Scout is too large. It also would have been cool if the straps holding it down were painted a different color to stand out more.
3. Because the tarp/sack is too large, the thrust flaps cannot be opened all the way. At best, they open to about 45%. I wish they could open up completely though for speed instead of 'cruising'.
4. The stand is nice and is design so that you can display the bike at three different heights. I tried the tallest first, but found it difficult to find a balance sweet spot. Also, the long one is thin towards the top that when I tried to adjust the speeders position, it would twist, so I feared snapping that leg off. I ended up using the shortest leg, since having the long and medium on the ground provided the best balance... and I'm happy with that since I'm only buying one of the bikes.
