Very cool Melvin. Now I've got something to do battle with.

:mrgreen:

Aside from acid rain, whats the storyline with this series?

Ok found it... http://www.skronex.com/story.html 8)

"The Second World War ended in 1945 but it continues in a collateral world - the Acid Rain World. The endless battles all over the place have destroyed the civilizations and polluted the environment. Resources have become scarce because of the unlimited pollutions and total warfares. Humans continue the war hopelessly to seize resources for survival, they control the mechanic armour and weapons to fight and defend themselves to struggle for tomorrow in the Acid Rain World."

I'm interested for sure. Looks like it'd cross to Star Wars pretty darn nice. :)

It seems like it would work very well with Star Wars.

They could be used to make some cool 1946 German infantry to go along with paper panzer customs! when will they be ready?

Melvin,

Is Acid Rain part of your group with the Aliens, Our War, etc.?

I see some pre-orders for these up on BBTS... I'm interested, but the prices floored me a bit ($20/figure, and $140 for that tank? Yikes!) when I saw them.

I ordered the vehicles but figures were already sold out by the time I checked them. :-(
But from what I read, there are supposed to be several types of figures coming.

Wow man, you committed to the vehicles? You're a better man than me. The price... Yikes. I was shocked. The figures I am maybe a little more interested in but they're not cheap either. I was just sticker shocked on those vehicles though.

The vehicles look cool, I see Big Bad Toys has them on Pre-Order. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/sear ... cid%20Rain

The Winged Victory Sculpture would look good in a diorama.

Yep, had to pick these up. The sheer coolness of them, plus the weathering on them sold me. If I could do any good weathering at all, I might not be as impressed with them ;-)

I'm ordering the 2-pack of figures... Pricey, but I want the statue and a figure. May sell the other figure.

I expect these to not be here in April. Not right away anyway. Maybe end of the month.

Hiya Toys also has a figure up on BigBadToyStore for Aliens: Colonial Marines, if anyone's interested. I know I am. :) I'm putting both up on pre-order now.

Have to say I agree. Acid Rain's looking like an awesome little line. I just wish those vehicles were affordable. Ugh.

Looking forward to seeing this up close. My order went into my pile of loot which I won't have shipped until May but will take pics once it arrives ( if nobody does before then)

I made my own Acid Rain Vehicle .

The skull was taken from one of the figures on the Acid Rain line . I tried to give the illusion of it being hand painted by stipple painting it .

I received my order of the speeder, the ST-01 and commander pilot, but haven't had time to even open and look at them yet. Will take pictures soon once I do open them. Also, Normandy, because you asked, I am about to list my King Tiger kit for sale for 300.00, shipping included. I really wanted this one but my work is keeping me busy and on the road, and preventing me from even getting the practice I need to do a good job on it. It is still in the box Pickel sent it in. PM me if interested, if not, I'll post on the B/S/T :-(

All I know is the rocket launcher used to take those down? It's called the MH7 "Drawn Butter" launcher... Devastating, and delicious.
