Toy Fair 2008

By Peter Suciu


Fans of “The Haunted Tank” comic book series will surely recognize this Stuart light scout tank from the Forces of Valor line, which includes commander and driver. Helpful ghost of General Stuart not included.


For those looking for some modern death from above need look no further than Forces of Valor Apache gunship.


Let the duel of the tanks begin. Forces of Valor have introduced these 1/24-scale remote control tanks including the U.S. M4A3 Sherman and German Tiger I. While we won’t comment that this isn’t exactly the fairest fight, tank buffs can take charge for an armored melee in the living room.  Tanks sold separately.


The Franklin Mint Precision Models Line for 2008, which is the 25th anniversary of the company’s model line, features numerous combat aircraft. New for this year is the A-10 Warthog “Black Lighting,” as flown by the Connecticut Air National Guard (Pilot Col. Dan Peabody).


Franklin Mint is introducing a plane that would put a smile on The Duke’s face. John Wayne himself would appreciate this 1/48 scale AC-47 Gunship, known affectionately as “Puff the Magic Dragon.”
