Have not seen those before. They are really good looking! 1/12 is often associated with fantasy figures, Lord of the Rings, Sci-fi like Predator, Alien, Star Trek, etc. Here's a tank to go with them.....

Whoa! Haven't looked at Monkey Depot in a while. They've really changed their assortment philosophy. Looks like they're going all high end stuff. They used to be heavy on 1/6 Dragon figures, vehicles and accessories. Now it's Soldier Story, DID and lots of fantasy and female figures with big time prices. Much of it's pre-order stuff. I'm not a fan of pre-orders but their selection doesn't have anything I'd be interested in now anyway. I do like those 1/12 figures but I can't allow myself to get into anything else! 8)

Those are really nice-looking figures! They come across like smaller iterations of the premium 1/6 scale figures. I have a lot of 1/12 (6”) scale figures and vehicles from the Star Wars Black Series line. It is a good scale for figures (they’re large and detailed, but not too large) but larger vehicles can take up a bit of space.

I find these figures interesting, the head sculpts are great and the equipment is very detailed.
I started with 1:6 Dragon in '99 and then found 21st's 1:18 line, needless to say I've stuck with 1:18 and now
I'm running out of space. :?
A nice alternative to 1:6 and more detailed than 1:18.

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 will follow.

Hey Axis I'm like you, I can't start anything else. 1:1 takes plenty of space and along with
1:18 :roll: . But I did like the Dusty Trails 6" German...

...still have it on display.
I'll keep watching Monkey Depot and when available, I might check them out.
