    Hey all,

    Mike here and this may seem stupid for some but I always thought that Classics 2.0 Blades reminded me of an actual helicopter and now I its true,this picture I found a few minutes ago proves it.I give you Blades.

    Its a Huey HH-65C. But I wonder with Hasbro's blatant resemblance if they had to pay royalties to the Huey company for using there helicopters likeness.And although there are slight differences like the pop forward missile launchers up top near the main rotor I think this model was used as the mold for Cyb.Evac,and Classics Blades and so forth.Does anyone else agree,let me know.Later guys.

    that is not called a Huey. G1 Blades is a Huey like this:

    I ought to know- i live next door to the Home of Army Aviation, Ft. Rucker and have flown in them.
    that is a Dolphin.
    Bell/Textron manufactures the Huey and the AH-1W SuperCobra (G1 Whirl is a G/S model Cobra)
    it wasn't such a big deal 20+ years ago, and probably when the Cyberton Evac mold was released, that Bell didn't mind or bother with going after Hasbro for the money or rights.
    it was free advertising and publicity.
    same could be said for Eurocopter, which builds the Dolphin.
    wouldn't say that today, though.

    What the first reply said. Cyb. Evac/Uni'08 Blades is a Eurocopter Dauphin.

    This.

    Lots of Transformers are under the "Similar but legally distinct from" category.
