I scored 2 nice dimestore vehicles that looks suitable for 20mm to 28mm sci-fi. check them out at my blog.

Those are cool! Wish I could find some of those at the local dollar store

What store? Brand name?

Nice find!

Very "Avatar", actually. I'm all-in with 15mm at the moment, but reworking the canopy might make it fit in.

put me down for four.

WOW! That's incredibly good for the price!

Seriously… buy a bunch of 'em up and relist here on TMP… Even at three times what you paid for them, I'd buy 4-5 of 'em!

richarDISNEY Inactive Member22 Jan 2013 8:27 a.m. PST

I'd buy some of those in a heartbeat for 28mm!

Hi. I get a blank black screen when i try the link ??

Great find/buy! Out of my scale, but kudos nonetheless (and more for the rest of you, right?).

It might not be a bad idea to scarf up as many as are available and sell them to the crowd here. I cannot imagine how you could *lose* money doing that.

I thionk we all look forward to seeing those finished up and next to some proper figurines to see how they all go together. Any ideas on mounting techniques for them?

The OP is overseas for most TMP members. Shipping might impede resale.

Well, if they're light, shipping from the Philippines to, say, the USA might not be that bad.

()OT: I could have sworn Philippines had two 'L's.)

I never see those in New Zealand equivalents of your dime stores. Our cheap imported Chinese crap is definitely not as good as yours.

I am interested, does anyone want to import into UK?

thanks if you can tell me the manufacturer.

I've updated the entry with some comparison pics. check them out:


There's no manufacturer labels on the model and on the packaging but will check if they have more in stock this weekend.
