Little Armory M202 Flash Rocket Launcher

The M202 rocket launcher was arguably made iconic by John Matrix in the movie Commando. This is the second Little Armory rocket launcher kit after the AT4. The plastic comes in olive drab and light brown. Also included is a strap, a rocket and some stickers.

I painted the green parts with my own mix of dark green paint, and the extended rocket barrels with copper. As usual, I opted to use my own waterslide decals instead of the included stickers.

There’s two types of configurations to choose from: the compact version, and the extended, ready-to-shoot configuration. You change between the two by swapping parts. Fully extended, the M202 is just a bit longer than the AT4.

And with the skeleton & GM:

Final thoughts:

The M202 is essentially a square tube that shoots rockets. Design-wise it’s not the most pretty thing you’ll ever see but it does have its own unique looks.

As for the kit itself, I’d put it in the lower tier of all the Little Armory kits I’ve built. For one, the barrels are not hollowed out, making them look invariably toyish. Some of the swapable parts like the front & back covers didn’t fit too well either.

There’s not many poses I can make with the M202 other than the shoulder mounted, shooting pose. Even that pose was a bit difficult to setup on Mr Skeleton. The GM was slightly more forgiving. Speaking of which, the M202 seems like a nice match for the Ground Type GM.

So overall, I feel the M202 somewhat disappoints in terms of build quality and playability.

  1. Hi, I wonder where did you buy those waterslide decals you used on this one and M4 and AT4. I’ve looked around but can’t find any.

    • they’re mostly random caution decals from Hi-Q parts: http://www.hiqparts.com/product-list/44

      • Ah, thanks. I’ll look around for some.
