Special Mission Tactical Vehicle Playset by Auchan

Another accomplishment by French retail group "Auchan". Purchased some years ago during Christmas time.


 The included tactical vehicle is a reliable copy of US Army´s Chenowth LSV.


The included figures and accessories. Suffering from the same Chap Mei "disease", the figure/weapon issue remains.

The "latino" influence in the name creation process is curious... at best.


The figures are actually good. Basic articulation (SW POTF-like). The female figure won´t win a beauty contest anytime soon, but as far as plastic molding goes, very clean and sharp things done here.


The weapons are a major plus in this one. They are, like already written, too big for 3 3/4" figures, but very well conceived... and some of the grenades do actually fit 1:18 figurines. The weapons case closes swiftly and the ammo belt is made out of soft rubber making it a nice accessory.

Compare the real thing...

The LSV. Just a little too big. It´s a bit bigger than CM version, however that cage is sweet.

As you can see, it is a bit too big. Or maybe not. One thing´s for sure, you can replicate the cage to the CM LSV and accomplish a greater vehicle.

    Poorly made, but maybe the price was fine so it could become a good candidate for custom.

  2. Oh, I like these weapons. They look great for 6" figures too.
