$1.25 15-20mm Mecha
« on: March 29, 2022, 10:57:29 PM »
The most recent wave of Final Faction 4" action figures at Dollar Tree includes an oddly sized (compared to the other figures) Mecha. Below is a shot of the "P-131" with a 3" Destroid toy (HGUSA/Playmates 1994) and current production 1/160 CAV "Dictator" wargaming miniature.

Note that the line also includes a larger humanoid mech called the ACRM that is a bit over 4 inches.

Tomahawk Destroid (better known as a Warhammer in Battletech) is on the left, and the CAV one is on the right.

The middle one only rings a very distant bell. It looks like something out of the Mechwarrior games. And coincidentally the only one of the three I'd be interested in, seeing as I already have 1/100 Warhammers and the CAV one would be too small next to my 1/100 Battletech models. The 'P-131' might work alongside them though, if I could only recall what type it resembles... ::)

The middle one is the Dollar Tree P131.

Sadly, my dollar tree did not have him.

Went to another Dollar Tree. I scored 4 of them!

Sadly.....this store is in a bad part of town. Lots of syringes thrown on the ground, lots of shady characters loitering. A woman talking on the phone said she may not be able to lift anything because they have surveillance.
