A tale of two Thunder Raider's and why I have a ton of issues with the new one
First I am not a Ninjago fan BUT I do like some of the vehicles if you notice the TR v1 (first one) is piloted by space marines
Second the original one (v1) is on the left and the new one (v2) is on the right
Now lets get to some of my reason why v1 is better
1: First the front treads on v2 while nice and big there a lot more lose floppy the gearing system on them suck
2: The over all look of v1 is better by not having more noticeable repeating parts like v2 is
3: Sticker work looks better on v1
4: Bigger does not mean better the robot mode despite having a higher parts count means the over complicated joint system gets in the way of articulation of the mech unit
5: These clear blue pieces on v2 are stupid and add nothing to the build
All in all I think the original Thunder Raider is better, its better constricted and does not feel as flimsy and has more features like the air brake system on the back end of the v1.
