Great small set with a very well set up action figure (flippers, helmet, and featuring moveable feet).
Another pack from the still available DSA line.
Good insert graphics design. Classic, yet not vintage style. Timeless.
Included items. The dolphin is a bit too big, but not as outrageous as many other Chap Mei items. Usable. A nice addition to any marine/ naval set.
As many other CM toy animals, this item features a triggered movable part. In this case, pulling the dolphin´s dorsal fin backwards activates its closing mouth. The tail also moves up and down. The figure also comes with a removable utility vest reminding the U.S. military navy dolphin projects.
Besides light and smooth detailing, the "vest" comes with side handles to which figures catch "rides".
Most of the included accessories belong to the included figure. The removable vest can equip pretty much any 3 3/4" figure, and the helmet is absolutely great. Flippers are not far behind too. New mold.
The box is an entirely different sort of accessory. If you have ever been to a dolphin show, this looks like the "treat box". For most 1:18 scale lines, useless. The handle is so thick it would break most figurine hands.
Figure: "Flipper Miles". A great figure, and another one of Chap Mei´s elite figures. Moving feet, thin body, and greatly molded personal accessories. The colors used sort of remind me of the Secret Wars series 1 Wolverine.
Scale shots. The helmet and flippers are absolutely stunning and the bottom left picture serves to show how easily Chap Mei could shake the action figure world with a simple rescaling of their weaponry (as everybody knows) and finally, bottom right photo showing how Geobra´s Playmobil figures can use some of the overgrown CM parts.
