Chap Mei Military Figures

I pulled the trigger on this small lot of Chap Mei military figures the other day.5 bucks and some change was all I paid for these guys,a steal If you ask me.I'm extremely late to the Chap Mei party.I see them alot on blogs,Youtube  and Instagram and always thought they looked cool.It wasn't until Brother Midnight sent me a Chap Mei troll that I would decide to give these figures a try.What I like the most about these figures Is their quality.The plastic Is very rough and tumble, reminiscent of the old Adventure People figures. They remind me alot of the old Kenner stuff ,too.You could use these with alot of other toy lines-Kenner Aliens-Jurassic Park,Swamp Thing and even the new King Kong stuff thats been coming out lately. The sculpts are enough to keep you busy .Lots of small intricacies here and there with damn near perfect paint apps.Their weapons are big,very big.A trait that  takes away from realism but distinguishes the line.I really like these guys!So much so that  I had to give them all their own individual names!

  4. Some of Chap Mei's older lines are amazing. I hate that I missed out on their Pirates and Dino Hunters series. I just love them for what they are, cheap, durable toys that look like fun.

    1. They are a fun bunch of figures.The ebay seller stated in the listing that these belonged to her son,who has moved on to bigger and more expensive figures.I guess that makes these gateway figs?

  5. Great job on the names. You should work for the creators of GI Joe.
