Toy Monsters for Toy Soldiers

I was walking through Michael's the other day and spotted some models in the plastic goodies bin. I was surprised to find that, in addition to the farm animals, elephants, etc., they actually had some fantasy creatures in the mix too. I was doubly surprised to find that some of the sculpts are actually pretty good to boot!


The models are done by Safari Ltd. and they have two fantasy ranges with some decent models, Mythical Realms and Dragons. With the recent GW trend towards big monsters, I think you can definitely get away these. Most could probably fit on a chariot base with a little modification/creative basing, although some are a little bigger.

I think if you hit them with a new layer of paint before releasing them on the tabletop, they'd look ace. With a price point of $15-20, they are a little pricier than your typical toy figure but they are very affordable if you're looking at them as pre-assembled plastic miniatures.

Any other good finds from toy companies out there?
