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...!

The 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.

The 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 painted.

Getting 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.

Kung Fu Masters: Pack 2 comes complete with Randy Joe, Sum Yung Guy, Ricky and William. Randy Joe (no sniggering at the back!) is an old, wise master with a long grey beard and hair; Sum Yung Guy (very funny!) is a novice who is going through his paces; Ricky is a topless master, preparing to learn the ropes; and William is ready for some staff fighting.

The play sets for the Kung Fu Masters's series include Sushi Diner (which includes a table, statue and Japanese style screen) and The Bridge (which acts as a battle arena for your figures).

The Kung Fu Masters series gets an extra mark out of 10, due to the fact that the figures seem to be a lot better thought out and is certainly a series that I would collect.

Instantly 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.
