SWAT Police Tough Vehicle - Updated!

Today we come back to Chap Mei´s S.W.A.T. Police line to bring you another very nicely sculpted vehicle. And unfortunately, or sadly, or maybe both, as some of the latest CM vehicles, they are good looking but not functional. This armored car, which has a similar Bad Guyz "Nemesis" has one important thing in its favor: size. It´s near perfect.

The set yet to be opened.

And here we go...

Like said before, Chap Mei MUST spend a fortune in packages alone. I wondered for some time WHY the prices went up the way they did since Soldier Force Series I and such. Obviously, the quality was one reason, the demand another... but I wouldn´t be very far from the truth if I´d say that these carefully packed toys aren´t so pricey nowadays also due to the condition of their boxes. Just check out the plastic screws and nuts to hold this small vehicle.

The vehicle and the figure: Sgt. Stormbreaker.

Some cool details on this baby.

What still bothers me is the fact that apart from the driver´s door, none of the others open.

Take a look at the radar dish "action". Reminds me of the Aliens APC cannon movement when it entered the terraformation facility in "Aliens".

Scale shots. As you can observe, it is one of the most accurate relations to G.I.Joe, ARAH figures.

A must for any G.I.Joe customizer.

    Finally one vehicle reviewed that I've =). I've the same 2 issues with this car:

    1st the right side isn't painted;
    2nd the right door doesn't open.

    Other than that is a great have for any Police Force.


Thank your for being part of this!
