    I don’t really like the Data Viper gear either, but the figure underneath looks great and I do like the helmet choice. I will probably just take off the backpack and display him without it. After all, he is the Defiant pilot and he wouldn’t be wearing all that equipment when he is in the shuttle ****pit flying it.
    I don't see why anyone is down on the Data Viper backpack and arm controls. It looks like a perfect self-propelled zero-G self-propulsion rig. Reminds me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiMMfI0hcGw

    It is the racks of missiles on the shoulder. Fire a rocket in space and good bye floating into oblivion...

    I think the idea is the backpack rig has self-propulsion (hence the arm controls). In other words, Payload can compensate for any rockets he fires by counterbalancing it with the jets on his back.

    Physics For every action their is an equal an opposite reaction...
    Consider just firing a gun, which the rockets would have much, much more force...

    Action; fire the gun, reaction; use mmu thruster to stop backwards motion and move up,down and the forward. Gee aint science fun. Come on we're talking about a toy not reality. If you don't like it that's your opinion, but don't say that its because its not realistic. Then again look who im talking to if it's not a figure you want seems you always have to belittle it.

    I don’t care if they want to fire rockets in space, I personally just don’t like how it looks. It's more like something from Star Wars or Battlestar, and a little to futuristic for my vision of G.I. Joe. That’s just my opinion. Other people are digging it and I’m fine with the figure how it is. I’ll just remove the backpack and display him how he would look piloting the shuttle from the co... um... the little room at the front where the pilot sits.

    Also, the two missile racks are totally removable from the rest of the rig, if that’s your only problem with it.
    looking for:
    tan harness from 25th DVD pack Stalker
    black shoulder harness from Dollar General gray Duke
    tan colored legs from Renegades Tunnel Rat, POC Steel Brigade, or similar color
    sniper rifle from Retaliation GI Joe Trooper (gray) or female Cobra Trooper (black)
    vintage Backblast v1 missile launcher
    DG Storm Shadow Bow (or similar mold in black)

    no beard, just a mustache, so it looks like Leoric, the Visionary we got in the SDCC set.
