Toy Haul

To celebrate finishing Lia, I decided to buy some accessories. Among the purchases was a Ultimate Soldier 1:6 scale MG 34 set at Toys R Us. However, there were some unexpected finds on my way back at the local KB toys.

Picked up a Transformers Arcee for the sake of picking one up. It's quite a nice model with an interesting transform. Asuka now has a motorcycle to ride.

Hmmm. What's this? Looks like Hotaru found something interesting in the discount solider guy box. This "Soldiers of the World" series seems to be pretty rubbish based on the fact that no one's ever heard of this before and the fact that it's 8 dollars. But, hey, this guy comes with a M60E4 with two interconnecting belts of ammo, a beretta, and a awesome jacket!

"That looks nice! I'll take that." And so they stripped the US navy seal down and robbed him.

Hotaru shows the pretty sweet zippered jacket that the figure comes with. Much better than what I can do. She also is holding the M60 with both belts linked together. Why it didn't come with some magazine box, I don't know, but she can now go Rambo style all over the desk.

He also comes with a pair of sunglasses and a Beretta, featured on Lia. Quite detailed and not as generic/shoddily made as I expected them to be.

This series apparently has been around for some time, but no store seems to want to sell these things. Might be because of this guy's facial expression that was widespread among the other figures to choose from. It screams "HUUUAAARRRGGGGH! I LOST MY KEYS IN THE SAND!" I was going to throw him away and keep his accessories and clothes, but he's actually more articulated than I expected. I think I'll leave his basic clothes and use him as a male companion for my creations. He still needs a name.
