M&C Toys World Peacekeepers
Big Bang for the Bucks!
When Gordon at M&C Toys generously sent me a huge box of their
scale Power Team Peacekeepers action figures and play sets, I was
stunned. I have not done any reviewing of 3 &3/4 scale figures,
I was with the entire line spread out before me. I had expected
samples of the 1/6th scale line so this was certainly a surprise.
unpacked a few of the figures and vehicles I was slowly drawn in
tiny details and plentiful accessories. By the time I got to the
Fighter Plane I was totally hooked. Then the articulated camel
mounted Delta Force rider totally pushed me over the edge. These
too much fun!
At the price point these are being sold, they should smoke the
competition. Ranging from a suggest retail price of $4.99 for the
member Delta Force Team set up to $19.99 for the big deluxe F-18
Plane, these are priced right to build a big army of troops and gear.
Starting at the top, the F-18 Fight Plane is 24 inches long with
wingspan of 18 inches. It comes with two fighter pilot figures
accessories including 8 missiles, boarding ladder and fuel cans.
canopy is removable and the cockpit seats two figures. SRP: 17.99-$19.99
The Combat Helicopter is a whopping 24" long and the chopper
18". Working doors, blades and landing gear make this vehicle
fun. It comes with two decked out Delta Force guys and lots of
accessories including fuel barrels, gas cans, crates and flak vests.
At 15" long and 19" including the cannon, the Combat
Tank makes a
formidable looking vehicle. Crewed by three Marines, it features
accessories including a barbed wire and "steel" blockade,
fuel drums and
cans and a full arsenal of heavy weapons including a mounted 30
machine gun. SRP- $13.49-$19.99
Your Rangers will have the advantage with the 12" Lookout
Tower set. This
prime position is manned by 3 able Rangers who come fully equipped
weapons, ammo box, sighting scope, crate, rucksack, oil drum, pliers
backpack radio. Tower details include a mounted machine gun and
with wire ropes.
The Military Buggy is loaded with 5 high-powered weapons. Enough
two supplied Delta Force men to take on any foe. This heavy duty
vehicle includes an ammo can and bandolier of shells.
Four smaller play sets are available, each containing a smaller
and rider. The ATV-Dirt Bike is driven by a Ranger and includes
ammo box, shells and wire cutters. The Military Motorbike is all
needs to get the job done, along with his weapons, flak vest, radio
fuel drum. My favorites are the Ranger and Forest Horse set and
Desert Camel with Delta Force rider. The animals are articulated
sets also include various accessories for the figure.
The figures themselves are highly articulated, nicely detailed
painted and available as single carded figures or in sets like
Man Delta Force Team. This large figure set includes weapons, protective
pads, flack vests, weapons, ammo can, bandolier, radio, sandbags
Power Team flag. SRP on the 3 Man set is $4.99.
