Overall is NOT an Average.
The Unimax LAV is a solid piece, something I expect from Unimax, but the lack of weathering and an interior make this whole vehicle a pass for most modern collectors. Unimax has compromised it’s own quality standards here and I hope they can recover with their next new offering. I hope this shoddy job was done as a rush in order to replace the unproduced Stryker in the line up quickly.
As of August 28th, 2009 this is only available at Toys R’ Us as part of the Assault Force line up from Unimax.
For comparison, here is a shot of the LAV in comparison to some the Unimax 1:18 Bradley Cavalry Fighting Vehicle and the Power Team Elite 1:18 Type 92 Infantry Fighting Vehicle.
