Blue Tanks

Wednesday, November 27, 2019

Ok, I've never seen a blue tank before. Have you? I've seen a pink tank! If you haven't already, check out the classic War War II flick Kelly's Heroes in which the hipster doofus Sgt. Oddball blasts a German Tiger tank in the ass with a pink paint ball round by mistake. 
Now I'm all for new releases and what not, but I was hoping for the black version of the M48 which only made a single appearance in the Shadow Assault Mountain Playset from the 80s and is beyond rare. Combine that with a black armored car and the S.W.A.T chopper playset and ya really got something. But I must digress.

Aqua Green Bulldog

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Blog reader Clarence recently got his mits on what appears to be a TimMee freak of nature. An aqua green M41 Walk Bulldog. So the speculation (so far) goes something like this: it could a test shot (making it valuable), a simple oversight during production (doubtful) a last minute substitution of plastic during the end of a production run or a way to use up leftover material. Whatever the case, this is one cool find. And I thought it was just bad lighting when I noticed the listing. Ugh.

Anyway, congrats to Clarence for this very unique find. If anyone has their own theory as to the origins of the aqua Bulldog feel free to let us know! 

Meanwhile, please enjoy some of Clarence's photos:

The Mighty Dominator
I had one these a long time ago. I remember not liking the forest green color at all. I ended up giving it to a neighbor's son who couldn't give a crap about said color. The reissue green, on the other hand, is spot on. I saved the new stickers and slapped on some tried and true white stars. Looks really sharp! A big registration number on the back of the turret would be a nice touch.






Gray Patton tank
I dig the new color. Makes me wanna slap on some German Iron crosses and that creepy symbol which begins with the letter S. Shame on me for such dark thoughts. Semper Fi!
