From our friends in Russia, Armor35 releases two brand new cast resin figures to their line. Offered both in 1/16 and 1/35 scaling, Todd Michalak [TRM5150] gives his combined review of Tank Girl.

I marvel at the quality of sculpting and casting. Some figures show marks from applying layers of sculpting material as well as marks from the tools. The past several Armor35 figures I've seen are equally smooth.

I'm really liking their figs Fred! Good sculpts are half the battle, but their casting is simply well done! Now just to schedule some time to squirt some paint around on these!!

You forgot to add...and silicone

Nice looking figure but somehow the baggy sleeves
on such a tight outfit really look odd.

Cheers,

Me thinks it is not her arms she's been working out.

I think the tight garment is actually sleeveless, and the baggy sleeves belong to the whatever she's wearing under it. No silicon, Joe, just good support!

The figure Hisham found reminds me of the Russian commander from the old Command and Conquer Red Alert game.

The one on the extreme right

Isn't "Tank Girl" Trademarked because of the British comic by the same name and the film by the same name both featuring a woman about tanks?

Not trying to cause trouble - just a heads up!
