From X-Concepts the makers of Tech Deck, Modifiers, Citizen
and other really cool stuff comes the Micro Icons. They are
tiny little guys (and girls) but they are totally big on personality.
Cool little figures including masters of martial arts, punks
with attitude, commando war heroes, laid-back bikers and some
cool brothers to bring things into perspective. Lots of detail,
good paint jobs and great character...!
Micro Icons series has to be seen to be believed. Each
pack comes with four highly detailed figures. There are even
some play sets that can be bought which also double as attractive
stands for the little people to be displayed on.
figures retail at £4 for each pack - which is £1
a figure. While that might sound a little pricey for such
tiny figures, you've got to look at the attention to detail
to appreciate that you are getting good value for money. The
models are not only well sculpted, they have also been beautifully
figures like this to stand up is always a problem, but X-Concepts
have come up with an ingenious way of keeping them upright.
A small magnet has been inserted into one of the feet of each
figure. So, as long as you are playing on a metal surface,
your models will all stand up.
Pack 2 comes complete with Sarge, Chuck G, Gunny and Rosco
- between them they have a rifle, grenade and pistol - Gunny,
ironically has no weapon. And, like the rest of this series,
each figure is a caricature of this segment of society. Sarge
looks like a no-nonsense mean Mo-Fo; Chuck G. looks like he'll
throw grenades first and ask questions later; Gunny seems
to be the stereotypical shouting commander; and Rosco has
gone all Rambo on us.
play sets for the Commandos's series include Grenade
Alley (which is a brick wall with sandbags in front of
it) and Patriotic Platform (which has a huge American flag
as the backdrop as well as a chair and ammunitions case).
collectible, these figures are sure to be a hit with children
worldwide. The fact that there are plenty of different collections
(commandos, bikers, souljahs, Kung-Fu and punks) ensures that
there is something for all tastes.
