...3 new figure sets due soon

1) 24054 "At the Edge of the Universe. Strange Company's adventures. Episode I. The first meeting. Tiberious "Ty" Constellation Hackington III" - this is the fifth kit in the new series " At the Edge of the Universe. Strange Company's adventures" and is part of the story told with the help of our figures about how different characters, accidentally met in the bar of the peripheral space station, became a cohesive team, later known as" Strange Company ".  
The kit includes a figure of a galactic special forces fighter.
Tiberious "Ty" Constellation Hackington III
Ty is young and full of ambition. He was born on one of the most highly developed planets of the Galactic Union, with excellent natural and technological education opportunities. Growing up in a rich and comfortable megalopolis, he was not particularly suited for the harsh service life he chose. His desire to prove himself assisted him to overcome the prejudice of both bosses and fellow soldiers and become an exemplary fighter in the Galactic Union Special Forces. He is highly developed and well educated. He dreams of studying at the Academy, but it has been difficult for him to get into the Academy because of caste prejudices and the lack of financial support from his relatives. He is very organized and clearly and accurately executes orders to the letter. He is not very motivated and proactive and he is not inclined to improvise, which on the one hand, makes him a very reliable member of the team, but on the other it closes his prospect of growth to the level of sergeant. Despite a very decent education, he must rely solely on himself and a state scholarship if he wants to attend the Academy to gain the coveted status of an officer. He doesn’t feel that his abilities will get him accepted, so he must decide where his future will go.

During the battle in the bar on the space station Almar, Lightning Bolt and Ty managed to pursue the renegades and get aboard the stolen shuttle/ship. They are now faced with a difficult decision. Join the “Strange Company” and take their chances, or remain loyal to the Galactic Union (and continue to be held back in their careers with the Galactic Union Special Forces)? Currently they are alone and outnumbered on a ship heading into deep space (that will be soon hunted by every resource the Galactic Union can muster). They have decided to join the “Strange Company”, a decision that will completely change their lives and destiny. They are now part of the most wanted/hunted group in all of space.

Laurie “Lightning Bolt” Barnes  - this is the sixth kit in the new series " At the Edge of the Universe. Strange Company's adventures" and is part of the story told with the help of our figures about how different characters, accidentally met in the bar of the peripheral space station, became a cohesive team, later known as" Strange Company ". 
The kit includes a figure of  a galactic special forces fighter.
Laurie “Lightning Bolt” Barnes
Laurie is a Common soldier of the Government “Special Forces” detachment. She is beautiful, smart and extraordinary, she is also strong and tough, but flexible in nature at the same time. This has allowed her to quickly adapt to changes in every situation that she has been involved with. She came from a poor family from an outer peripheral planet. She grew up in very difficult conditions where survival was the best she could hope for. She volunteered for military service in the hopes to better her living conditions. She is an excellent, experienced and enterprising fighter. She is so good at what she does, it constantly incurs the discontent of her immediate superiors, who are intimidated by her abilities. Being a female, she constantly gets attitude from her male co-workers because she is so focused on being the best she can be. Therefore, she is forced to reconcile herself and just drudge on to prove she is something worthwhile. She has proven herself an asset over and over again, but despite her high performance she has not been advanced to the sergeant as of yet. Her abilities warrant advancement and she would make an excellent Officer, but entrance to the Officer level is closed for her due to her lack of education and social status.

3) 24048. Buffalo Hunter. Running Bear.
 

The kit starts a series of figures in 1/24 scale, dedicated to the history of the Wild West and is a set of details for the making of a horse figure and an Indian of Prairies. The kit is filled with inner energy, a bright emotion and contains an entire story. We also want to recommend our distributor, when presenting this kit, to pay special attention to the buyers that this kit is the part of a series of kits.
