Star Wars Combat Assault Tank

I'm not Star Wars savvy but I saw this in the Ollie's Outlet flyer. Looks to be about 1/18 scale. Most items at Ollie's are there because they are duds or mega-over produced so I don't know about this but thought I'd put it out there. I don't know who has an Ollie's in their area. We have 3 or 4 her...

Re: 1:12 Figures

That video shows how they are very 1/6 like in detail and accessories. If you ever consider moving up to 1/6 scale from 1/18, DON'T. If I had it to do over again I would consider these 1/12 offerings. They are a huge leap from the toy like and robot like exposed articulation of 1/18 along with out o...

Re: 1:12 Figures

I don't see any articulation points on the limbs, yet they show different arm poses. Are the limbs bendy? Really nice looking pieces. :?: Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought they have actual cloth uniforms on over the body which would cover the joints. :?: which was also why I thought they were s...

Britt, She's definitely a keeper, as is that good looking Jeep! T-man, I too am now single and after several years of readjustment, have turned the house into my mini museum. 1/6 and then 1-1 are space killers and tolerant as my wife was, there's no way I could have military mannequins in the living...

Re: What does the wife really think about 18th ?

My Wife passed away nearly 8 years ago. She was amazingly tolerant of my hobbies and encouraged my Museum work. There were times when I'd proudly show her my latest acquisition and she would just shake her head and walk away but in the end never had any outbursts. I helped her take care of her elder...

Re: 1/6 ITEMS

Modifying the GI Joe Jeep... In 2002, Hasbro came out with a 1941 slat grill Jeep that was heads and shoulders above their usual toy quality. It was better in several ways than the competition's 21st Century example and I believe Hasbro saw a need to meet or exceed this new on the scene challenger. ...

Well I still applaud his effort toward the general idea. These things don't always go right. At a recent model contest someone entered a Fokker Tri-Plane.

Oh my! I'd say they got the wings mixed up!! The E wings are painted to go with the G and the G wings with the E.

Good flick though, I just wish they had Wildcats and Hellcats. Bummer
Sorry, no Hellcats in 1942. Wildcats would have been nice as they were there for sure along with some Brewster Buffaloes.

Technology has allowed the detail of high quality 1/6 scale to be downsized for space purposes targeting customers just like you that want quality. If they look as good in person as in those pictures, they're amazing. Vehicles that scale are few and far between. If the figures catch on, vehicles wil...

Have not seen those before.

The critics loved DUNKIRK. One even said it was probably the best war movie ever made. I think DUNKIRK is one of the worst war movies I've ever seen. Another example of how "critics" are often out of touch with what paying customers think. I would never decide to see or not see a film based on one ...
