The REAL Winner of this entry-level “battle” is YOU—the Collector!
Finally, some “fiscal relief” for cash-strapped fans of 1:6 scale: Super System Toys (SST) has just released an all-new line of affordable, super-articulated (SA), and uniformed figures. SST’s figures are a shot across the bow of all 1:6 scale producers, primarily “entry-level” M&C Toys, creator of the well-known PowerTeam World Peacekeepers line.
Unfortunately for M&C, SST’s new figures are clearly a notch above in quality, offering superior, super-articulated (SA) bodies and uniforms at the competitive low price point of only $21.99. We’ve seen other “lowball” producers try this market approach before, offering so-so figures with so-so headsculpts, rudimentary uniforms and a lot of “trade fodder” gear, all sold at a low price. Most collectors end up cherry-picking the best offerings and tossing the rest. But these new SST figures are much better, and raise the dollar value per quality equation significantly. Take a look at these closeups:
Bottom Line: SST appears poised to take advantage of M&C’s (and Hasbro’s) current lull in the marketplace and may soon capture and dominate the lucrative “entry-level” segment of the action figure market. Just think about it…for about the price of 1 “top-of-the-line” Hot Toys or Dragon figure, you can pick up 5 to 10 of these new SST figures. If that sounds like a good deal to you, we recommend you patronize the trusted folks over at Cotswold Collectibles and/or Urban Samurai Toys, and… Happy Collecting!
