Cheers mate, just got this, I love the minirigs, I know they aren't to everyone's liking, but I really do like them, and especially boxed items, still quite affordable really to which is a bonus

Luckily, that's probably the most common weapon so completing that solider should be pretty easy.

Love the packaging photo on the MTV-7, I don't have any boxed mini rigs, I've seen some acrylic cases that hold out the flap so it can display quite large, but at that point, youre paying about as much for the case as you are the item.

Great stuff clapping

Heres a couple of oddball items  I just got in, not for me but for a secret santa on another board, first up pencil toppers, I can remember having a couple of these when I was a lad,

And next up some Dixie cups from empire, love the artwork on these, they need a clean but otherwise fine

Well my mini rig collection has a small addition, loved the radar cannon as a kid, and i'm happy to have this on the way to me, in decent shape to, and at under 30 pounds a bargain Smile

Cheers mate, yeah it was cool that this rig was actually in the movie, not an imagined piece, though I love the just off screen ideas they came up with for most of the other rigs
I see this has a sticker lifting but a dab of pritt stick will fix that up no problem

I love it too , I had one as a kid and played with it all the time . funny enough when I bought one as an adult (traded all my childhood collection for fishing gear when I was young) I had to look up how to assemble it on youtube .. great addition!! clapping
