Late last year, we learned of a new partwork range of military vehicles being produced by UK-based Eaglemoss Collections and have been keeping our fingers crossed that a distributor would be able to bring the line to the North American marketplace. Just days after the Nuremberg Toy Fair we have now learned that a distributor has indeed stepped forward, indicating that the first 12 vehicles in the series are expected in April. Big and beefy, these handsome 1:43 scale replicas harken back to the days of Solido, when military replicas were both attractively priced and beautifully displayed.
We hear that the line will encompass some 60 replicas, although we are not sure if that will include any repaints or Post-WWII era armored fighting vehicles. The pre-order window is now open and we anticipate brisk sales for the entire range.
