This is the TAOWAN 1/6th scale Full Metal STRYKER M1126 ICV (coming soon) and WOW! It looks very nice! Most of us will probably never get this because of the price PLUS the shipping costs! Imagine it - FULL METAL (Ouch!) It's going to hurt the pocket and burn a BIG hole in it. Even If I wanted to, where am I going to park it haha
Still, what a sight to behold ;p
Nice to look at, gawk at but I'll rather have more troops than put them inside the Stryker and hidden from view. Less bulky vehicles mean more space for figures.
