So while watching my wife assault the local Tuesday Morning looking for deals, I tried to amuse myself in this mecca for the meticulous saver. I did find a nice pair of sprue clippers masquerading as some lady beautification device for half the price GW wants, so that made me a bit pleased, but I still quested further into the toys section. Most of it was quite horrible, but at the end, near a ton of Tron figures, I found some cool litlte 1/18 scale guns. They seemed to be accessory packs(from back in the day of collecting IMHO) for a BBI's figure range. they had multiples of two separate sets, so I purchased one of each.
The first one had a cart of some sort, as well as a thompson, a bazooka, 4 ammo boxes, grenades, a trench tool and a few other random bits I didn't even bother to catalog. The first thing I noticed about these toys...they are very cheaply made, I thought I was going to destroy the cart just putting the wheels on.
After messing around with these for a bit...not impressed. The one cool thing, the 1/18 scale makes all my joes look like giants...which is good for a killer robot with a funny hat.
Speaking of scale discrepancies, these guys seem to work great for my 40k marines. I think the cart in particular looks fetching on my terminator and the grenades will definitely find their way onto my marines as I continue to build the warm marines.
And again will find its way into my 40k bits box...can't have too many grenades and rockets and ammo belts.
