Allied vehicles and soldier figures are included in UNIMAX’s superb Forces of Valor scale replicas.

Len Gatdula, Product Development Manager at Panache Place, Inc., the Rancho Santa Margarita, California based division of UNIMAX Toys, Ltd., told this reviewer, “These beautifully realized products have been around a number of years and have garnered quite a reputation among serious collectors and kids alike.
