It came with a modern dude... It's a modern paintjob though, so I'm assuming the original came with the one Nam guy with the peace symbol necklace?
I never saw the first one I don't believe... The new one's got a tan/grey camo that I'm not sure if it's legit Army or if it's a NATO scheme or something.
New one's neat, and cast in steel like the Winter Sherman was, so it's pretty unique.
Apparantly the Tiger's shipping to Wal-Mart right now (I've heard both an original grey pattern and winter deco) and they too are cast in steel.
Honestly, if it's not changing costs (IE: we can't get it cheaper as plastic) then I'm all for this die-cast stuff. Feels much more "tank" to me. Really neat.
I want a winter Tiger now!
Tonight extended the good fortune. I got 2 Fountain's for $10 each at TRU, and I got the LAST LAV they had for $16-ish.
Not a bad haul at TRU then tonight... I have to say that for $10 the fountain's suddenly a prime piece. If this had been $10 or $15 in the first place I may have bought one ages ago. Thankfully I never got one because the store has about 10 (well, 8 now), and they aren't flying off the shelves exactly.
It's a nice piece, but not $30 nice like they wanted originally.
$20 was too high too, but $10 sure as hell felt right, especially since the removable helmet German Infantry dude's packed in there too.
I'm pretty happy. Dunno why I bought two Fountain's, but I think I know a use for the 2nd one.
I guess other people's TRU's have tons of other stuff though... I've heard that there's a lotta Patton Cars, even old tanks and stuff, but mine is now cleared out of most all 21st product except fountain's and I think 2 of the weird era tanks (The Walker Bulldog or the other one... The tanks that didn't really have an era to fit in, ya know? I think the other was a Chaffee perhaps?).
