Thanks for letting me join the fun! I am here mostly to pick brains of the experts, as I stumble through creating my own mods. That said, I thought I would show some of my collection of 1:18 scale military stuff, mostly WW2. Though I also have a large G.I. Joe 3-3/4 collection. Heres mine, lets see yours!

Absolutely love the collection and the username! I'd hate to know how much scratch you've got invested because this is a huuuuuge collection. Probably the biggest 1/18 WW2 collection I've ever seen.

Plus most WWII guys were buying this crap off the shelf at Walmart, so it wasn’t nearly as expensive as it is in these dark days.

I can’t wait to see what WWII troops JoyToy is going to produce since I really need a set of Russians.

Yes indeed there was, it is the source of my sickness.... Marauder did have a kickstarter, that was fully funded.... unfortunately it did not unlock the bonus DAK soldiers.... never the less, 99% of the soldiers you see there in my collection, came from Marauder. I hope, dream, that they will eventually make the whole North African sets, British, DAK and SAS... I don’t remember if US was even an option?

Joytoy WWII would be completely insane. The regular figures are already stupid good quality (in my opinion). I absolutely love mine.

JoyToy? I think I have seen some of their stuff, very detailed, but I have not seen any WW2 stuff... do you have the inside scoop?

Go on their Facebook page they have a few pictures of the prototypes up already of some German troops. They look great

These are probably better for ya. There are more I’m jus to lazy lol. Look around when you get time. The quality is up there with marauders dime novel legends etc. some ways better some a lil not but I really love the product they are putting out. Hopefully they get into the vehicle market soon. They are listening to their fans and constantly upgrading their figures.

You're right, there is great quality in these prototypes! Like one guy said, the hands are a bit big, but they will work it out. I am with you, vehicles would be kick ass!! Thanks again for the tip!

I found this for anyone looking for something completely different in their WWII collection.


I have a fully functioning RC one and it’s definitely a great platform.
