You might remember my post back in February blabbing about the Acid Rain figures and vehicles that were just hitting the internet.
Designed by Kit Lau, the Acid Rain universe consists of transformable mechs and heavily protected pilots as they battle for territory in a destroyed environment.
When I first saw the figures I was besotted, having been abandoned by Hasbro as they do their best to kill the GIJoe franchise.
The prices from BBTS however meant that getting one figure from the US was going to cost $60.
Luckily the Acid Rain Facebook group came to my rescue and told me about Robotica Toys in Malaysia where I wouldn't be paying $40 for postage AND I got them in a week!
Interested in an unboxing?
Read on after the jump...
The articulation is not dissimilar to the 30th Anniversary GIJoe articulation.
There is also independent thigh articulation which unlike some super-posable figures actually feels stable and won't break if moved too much.
You can see the influences of Japanese action figures in the design.
The hands are rubbery which should avoid the problems that early GIJoe figures had - the dreaded thumb crack!
I couldn't stop fiddling with it today at work and if i'd had more time I would have taken some action shots outside. Maybe later.
If you're thinking about getting one but hedging your bets and thinking about converting a GIJoe figure instead - look - good idea, but take the plunge.
Going with Robotica Toys I got two Sol Commanders and postage to Australia for $70-ish, but if you're in the US, then BBTS may be the best bet.
I liked the service from Robotica Toys so much I may go back to get more vehicles and certainly more figures!
So what do you think?
Have you bought any?
Are you in the market?
Let us know - love to hear your thoughts!
