Fans of Lanard's The CORPS! figures will be pleased to learn there are a slew of new sets heading our way - including, for the first time, female recruits!
These images - which appeared recently on the website of UK-based toy store Smyth's - show a number of new vehicles and figure sets, including some familiar faces alongside a number of new characters, facing off in what appears to be a new theme: ''The Corps Elite Vs The Curse.'' As of yet we've no word on pricing but I'd expect a Dollar-for-Pound direct translation.
Interestingly there are two new, female additions to the line-up and although it's difficult to tell from these images, they appear to have jointed hips, rather than the simple T-crotch set-up used by their male counterparts. Sadly, though, the multi-figure sets also include some of the recent limited-articulation figures introduced in the previous wave. Still, it's a trade-off I'm willing to make to get some cool new characters, especially as The CORPS! figures are always sold at such a competitive price-point.
Smyth's lists the new releases as coming in August to the UK. No word yet on whether we'll see them in the US around the same time (or even sooner) but we'll be certainly checking the toy aisle at our local Walmart and Big Lots stores and when we find them, we'll let you know!
