COBI V22 Osprey (Select Version)
New for 2023, the COBI V22 Osprey tilt rotor aircraft is available in two versions that are officially licensed by Bell and Boeing. The first model available int he USA will be COBI 5835, which is the “First Flight Edition” and is available in white livery with red accents and celebrates the first flight of the Bell/Boeing V-22 Osprey on March 19, 1989. The second set available in the USA will be the COBI 5836, which is the military version and features a light grey paint scheme.
With he information we currently have on these sets, we know they will both be launched in the USA in 1:48 scale (this is the normal scale for COBI modern military aircraft sets). We also know that COBI is using a new and improved display stand for at least the COBI V-22 5835 and possibly (not likely) the military version as well.
Both COBI V-22 Osprey sets feature lego compatible building blocks that are made in Poland (not China).
Speaking of parts, the COBI V22 Osprey Set (5836) comes with 1090, and the COBI Osprey First Flight Edition (5835) has 1136 high quality parts that fit tightly so that your COBI aircraft set will be awesome for both display or play. The COBI V22 Osprey Set (5836) also comes with 1 COBI mini figure pilot, meanwhile the COBI First flight edition comes with 2 figures.
Does the COBI 5836 come with a display stand?
No, unfortunately you must purchase the COBI V22 First Flight Edition Osprey in order to get the new improved COBI aircraft display stand.
Also consider the COBI F-35B Lightning II Sets and the COBI CH-47 Chinook Helicopter Set (5807) here.
All the COBI Ospreys part’s are pad printed which means there are no messy decals and you just need to follow the detailed instructions (included) in order to assemble the parts correctly.

V22 Osprey History:
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, tiltrotor military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing and short takeoff and landing capabilities. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
In 1980, the failure of Operation Eagle Claw underscored that there were military roles for which neither conventional helicopters nor fixed-wing transport aircraft were well-suited. The United States Department of Defense initiated a program to develop an innovative transport aircraft with long-range, high-speed, and vertical-takeoff capabilities, and the Joint-service Vertical take-off/landing Experimental (JVX) program officially commenced in 1981. A partnership between Bell Helicopter and Boeing Helicopters was awarded a development contract in 1983 for the V-22 tiltrotor aircraft. The Bell Boeing team jointly produces the aircraft. The V-22 first flew in 1989 and began flight testing and design alterations; the complexity and difficulties of being the first tiltrotor for military service led to many years of development.
The United States Marine Corps began crew training for the MV-22B Osprey in 2000 and fielded it in 2007; it supplemented and then replaced their Boeing Vertol CH-46 Sea Knights. The U.S. Air Force fielded its version of the tiltrotor, the CV-22B, in 2009. Since entering service with the Marine Corps and Air Force, the Osprey has been deployed in transportation and medevac operations over Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Kuwait. The U.S. Navy planned to use the CMV-22B for carrier onboard delivery duties beginning in 2021.

This is a great set! It is functional and it is a good build. As usual, it came quickly from Warbricks and with no issues.

This is a wonderful build. Very detailed and very functional. I ordered the military gray but it looks like the first flight is just as good. If not better. It was nice to have an osprey since LEGO discontinued the model that they had before they even released it.

Just completed my build of the 5835 “First Flight Edition”. Love the rotating engines, which I display, of course, in the VTOL position. Another great edition to my expansive COBI plane collection. I’m eager to move onto the 5836 Military version based on CWilliams’s review.

Very impressive detail and fun model to build and display. Warbricks folks are the best buy Cobi brand models from.

Great Build with lots of details. A nice wonderful sturdy plane that’s good for displaying. Highly recommended.
AB (verified owner) –
Looks very good on the shelf after assembling it. Looks very futuristic. I wish the blades moved more freely though like the black hawk.

Love this Build!

vendor suggested this one
not much into modern aircraft but since I have run out of historical ones to build decided to give it a go
was very pleased with the result!
this is a straight forward build but there are so many small pieces you really have to pay attention
it feels very sturdy but I still would refrain from letting the kids play with it
only thing I wish it had were more markings on the body or wings
