The X-19 came out during a time in my childhood where I had grown tired of GI Joe for awhile and so I didn't know about it when it came out. Maybe if I had known then my interest would have been rekindled. I have one now, and this plane is awesome. The engines and landing gear retract when you pull a lever on the bottom (I'm not sure why the engines retract, probably to assist in the stealth properties of the plane). There are 2 large cruise missles, two small air-to-air missles, two guns incorporated into the wing design, and a pair of guns that pop up when the wingtips are extended. The cocpit slides forward to allow Slip Stream and another figure to fly the plane. With the exception of the few neon yellow pieces, this Joe plane is great. I'd say a must-have.
