Die-cast Eagle. Nose cone and engines detach (and can be connected to a central box to form a new craft). Top of nose cone opens to reveal figures in cockpit. One side of pod has winch handle, the other opens to show interior. The front leg pods fire missiles. Accuracy is compromised for the activity features.
