Re: Joy Toy 1:18 figure breakdown and size comparisson

Those are great looking figures for a little more than $10 bucks a piece. I would love that company to do an Colonial Marines (Aliens) line. The Market is so starved for anything 1 18 unfortunately. Have you seen the Hiya Toys line? http://www.hiyatoys.com/product/alien-aliens/aliens-colonial-marin...

Does anyone know if there is another link to the photos? I visited the link last week but today it seems the photos do not show up. I was interested in that M-60 tank dio that I wanted to try to use as reference....and it had a bunch of great work!

Yes can confirm the re-arrival of 21st back at TRU central OC, CA this morning. 4 PAK-40s, a peg full of German figs (2 DAK and 1 of the camo top and grey bottoms - good HS by the way.) and plenty of weapons packs (1:6) and 1:32 items. Interesting find. Was hoping to see something new on the back of...

A little recon at AWOH 2007

Well sorry if any of this is old news, but this scale is getting a bit slim for me...too many aircraft, not enough armor (tanks) not very much new stuff in general - so I have been focusing on other scales. We 1:18 scale fans need or "fix" sooner rather than later :wink: Anyway according to the rep ...
