    Picked up a couple packs of micro machines figures at the dollar store the other day. One figure was an X wing, don’t know the scale but the real find is a Stormtrooper Transport. I could only find crappy images of the micro machines model. Maybe your Google-fu will be better than mine.

    The original design looks like this;

    The model not too shabby. Scale looks close enough for 6 mm. It is painted an overall off white. I think I paid about $4 for the set. I have paid more for just a smaller drop ship/lander so not a bad deal. Picked up two, probably should go back and see if there are any left.

    I tossed the packaging and can’t find an image on the web. Along with the two minis there are two clear plastic stands which double as finger puppet adaptors for the minis. The stands plug into holes in the bottom (not too obtrusive).

    Looked and looked and couldn’t find images of the micro machines set. Turns out it must be a Hot Wheels set! This is what the packaging looked like;

    Went back to the dollar store and they still had stock on the shelves. It is a Hot Wheels product despite my thinking it was Micro Machines. Product code is CKJ81;

    Marked down at hot wheels so obviously a big seller, wonder why it ended up at dollarama. Anyways picked up a few more for $3 cdn each. Pretty good buy at that price I think.
