Predatees?

And if that's a sentry gun behind those female Marines...and if it's cheaper than $50 I'm going to be really pissed.

Just placed my order for the HIYA Toys APC from DCBS for a total of $220. Probably saved myself $20+ ordering through them on their preorder.

I ordered one as well, couldn't pass this up, I hope it's not fragile like some of their stuff is, ordered all the figures too, just cause I can I guess, it's not like there's Joes available to spend money on, can't wait to fill it up, it says it comes with one figure, wondering if it's unique or just one already available ?

I don't know if they have said what the figure is.

Regardless, a few days ago on HIYA's FB page they stated they only had 30% of the pre-orders needed to go ahead with this. I was pretty disappointed to hear this but if it falls through, there is another option for an APC, it just won't have all the bells and whistles.

If it comes to that, I hope I can cancel my pre-order without trouble.

I just ordered the loader for 42.99 which seemed like a pretty good price. Hoping it's not too fragile...

What's the best way to change the hands on the aliens? I just tried on the Boiler and the hands don't want to come out. I'm afraid to break the stub.

Also, Hicks and Hudson (I haven't oepened Quintero yet) have really loose shoulder and thigh joints. The legs and arms on Hicks come off very easily. Any suggestions about how to deal with that outside of just being careful?

Changing the hands, run them under hot water for a minute or so, they should pop out easily.

As for making the joints tighter, try squirting a little elmers school glue into the joint. Work the joint every few minutes to get the glue into the joint. You can also use super glue instead of Elmers school glue, but you have to be careful NOT to solidify the joint. If it's a ball joint, pop off the part and add a very small dab of super glue around the ball part. Wait for it to dry and put the limb back on. If it's still too loose, repeat this step until you have the right amount of tension in the part.

It's not any more or less fragile than most other 1:18th vehicles. It does have lots of small moving parts, so there is always a possibility of breakage if you get to carried away with posing.

I have the PL myself, I think $42 is a decent price.

New Marines up at BBTS. Kind of surprised that no one has mentioned these yet. And $19.99 instead of $24.99.
