Probably the "bomb" when Soldier Force V line hit the shelves, the M3 half-track variant model is a must. The rest of the playset was a bonus. A sweet one.
It featured a LOT of stuff. The most recent sets are very poor in that matter.
The presented action alone makes you want to have it. Bravo!
So much stuff it looks like a scene from "where's wally?".
Both slide ends and basket.
This looks like a hang. Nasty.
The tower is a re-used mold of the Dino Valley "trap tower" playset and the barricade from a Sentry Outpost Playset.
Rear view. The barricade is a basic hollow mold.
Some details of the tower and transport basket (usually included with Rescue playsets).
Nostalgia... SF/PF "series I" re-used barbwire... and the good old CHAP MEI every-line box.
Small closed cabin helicopter. Featured in a lot of themes, and this is one military version.
If this helicopter´s tail was longer, this would be a classic!
Hook detail. To move the hook up, one must rotate the tail rotor.
Search dog... not bad, maybe that head camera could be avoided.
Still a little too big.
The sniper. The Barrett M82A1 sniper rifle is absolutely beautiful. You can get this figure packed in a set of 5, police force colors: True Heroes Emergency Hero Police 5 Pack
Another included figure. Chap Mei old style.
Yet another "bruticus" figure.
And since "Barrcode Arrest" review showed us the Police version of this figure, I still stand my vote for best Chap Mei figure so far. Another figure you can still get a set of 5, police force colors: True Heroes Emergency Hero Police 5 Pack
Figure group shot. Please refer to "SWAT Police Barrcode Arrest Playset" for more on the rappelling rope ring.
Here we can see the scale of the M82A1 (a "sci-fi" variant of this weapon is seen in the movie "Robocop" as "cobra assault cannon" with explosive rounds).
The Half-track M3 variant.
The wood crates with bombs can be removed from the vehicle.
And the bombs from the crates...
The AA battery can also be removed.
A RAH G.I.Joe figure fits nice. It features L&S F/X.
Some cool details.
Some more interesting views of this fine piece of machinery.
Joes fit there perfectly. I believe SF V was the sweetest military series Chap Mei ever did. For a lot of reasons. Even their best tank was repainted for this one.
Comparison shots. With and without load.
An absolute must. Especially if you´re a WWII enthusiast.
