I like that this has been molded to accept Lego figures. We have those all over the house, and it may get the attention of the other kids.

Gang, we need to applaud this sort of thing, lest the hobby die when we graybeards go.

Makes me wonder if a caricatures campaign might be in order. I know there are quite a few options for aircraft available from Japan, and probably no small number of armor ones as well.

I have been debating about an "Egg II" campaign considering there are now a LOT of Egg Planes (to include several that are finally re-released), tanks, a truck, and ships.

Oh Darren, to say these are not for "serious" modelers is unfortunate. These types of kits are fun, quick, and did you realize there is a company that makes resin updates for the Egg Planes? That Fuji has PE and wooden decks for their Chibi ships?

Serious modelers can have fun with these which is what they're about.
