I was expecting a loony toon dressed as a police man.

What is here has not ended my disapointment. Where are the blades/rotors? They look more like kamikaze bombers, which could be fun, all the same.

One other gripe is the cramped up look, similar to some other orc choppers produced. Why can't they have a canopy and room to move?

One more is the cgi printed look (don't get me started). Never a good one.

Good to see alternatives anyway. Are they sold as prints or resin casts?

@ Hman: They are resin. I think the idea behind them is orks strapped to big engines with lots of weapons and in that regard they work well. I've ordered from this company before and have always had great service, just made another order yesterday. The casts are crisp and clean with little to no mold lines.

I just can't see aerodynamics working in their favor.

As bombs, yes.

I think they would look cool with wings and a nose from a jet kit attached to them. With the tail stuck on top the rear engine. That would make them more realistic and give extra room for a decent paint job.

Good to hear they are nice casts. Is that what we see here? I mean do the casts have the same print lines or do they print them better/clean them up prior to molding? (On the round surfaces and rear of the first pic in particular, almost everywhere if you look close enough, you get line effects where it should be smooth)

(Hey at least they are not cg pics, that would really bug me)

Compared to the standard Deffkopta, the pilot can enthusiastically wave his arms and stand up without being maimed or decapitated by the rotor blades, which is always a plus….especially since most of these pilots have bionic arms already.

I think the execution never appealed to me.

I felt they were made small and cramped to fit them in the black reach box.
