Bringing up an older topic, but I recently purchased the Hiya Colonial Marines APC model via Amazon Prime and it’s really quite incredible 8)

The model really is a gem with accurate detailing throughout and a lot of working features.  Mine came with a “Bella” action figure and that hasn’t broken on me yet...  I guess my only gripe is that the top gun turret on my model is a tad loose, and while it could easily be fixed by tightening the screw that holds it to its baseplate, the screw is near-impossible to reach without removing the slide-rails that hold it in place. 

I also wish there were more Colonial Marines figures that were easily available and affordable other than just Cruz, Bella, and Redding.  (I missed out on Hicks & Hudson and can’t justify nearly $100 for an action figure!)

I was in GameStop a little while ago and saw the Hiya Toys Loader from Aliens.  I was seriously tempted to pick it up.  It was only $39.99, and it’s also 1:18 scale.  With some paint it could make a decent stand-in for a Clone Wars era ammunition loading droid that I remember seeing in some reference books.
