There’s a decidedly chilly feel to ICM’s latest ‘Others’ figure, which joins the firm’s Night King (16201), striding towards an unseen objective.

REBEL YELL

Here’s a neat addition for Bandai’s Star Wars kits, in the shape of three Rebel Alliance pilots – one is climbing the ladder to his spacecraft, while the other two are walking (one in the process of putting his helmet on as he does so).

READYING A WIMPEY

SOVIET PLANE DRIVERS

Although ICM’s Soviet pilot figures are the ideal accompaniment for its 1/32 scale aircraft kits, these are equally suitable for any early Russian World War Two aircraft, comprising one seated (depicted in a Polikarpov I-16 on the box cover) and two standing, as if giving/receiving a verbal mission brief.

PROPELLER WASH

While intended to complement Special Hobby’s newly tooled Siebel Si 204, this figure, which is posed as if cleaning a propeller blade, would be suitable for any Argus engine-powered airframe.
