Maisto Forces series in Matchbox size and around 14.5 inch

Postby carmagreviews » Thu Jun 11, 2015 6:26 am

Recently my local Upper Hutt Warehouse is now selling some of these new products - a new Army series in sought off snow Camouflage.
there are 1/32 -1/36 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2003-2009 soft top in Dark army green or a white grey camouflage -thats worth a look cost here $8.00 NZ - I brought army green model as it looks more a private road vehicle (Seem to be Unique to Upper Hutt Wellington as no other shop of the Warehouse chain in Wellington NZ has the Forces series maybe the distributor is testing the market?)

a number of 'toyish' Tank or Strikers (but no brand is mentioned maybe some budding miltary experts could identify one model could be a GMC LAV) and in the singles range much of Fresh metal commercials are used like the White M Series Army Truck ; various Hummers and CJ4 Jeeps and a bull dozer - obviously aimed at kids but still many will find their way to our collections.
there are aircraft available but here in NZ it just the choppers-these been all Sikorsky but not clear what model is represented (there appears to be 4 models of the Sikorsky on the back of the card) cost $3.00 NZ

As of yet I have not seen the Stealth or Blackbird plane series (pity they are not black!?) nor the Multi play sets of vehicles and soldiers - I do believe Maisto has a winner here and found a link on prototype Maisto.com website

No it's the green Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) in the middle of the big pack. cdg has an obsession with these. :lol:
