These sets are lots of fun. As long time Toy Wizards readers will recall, Jada Toys released a similar 18 pack of Power Rangers diecast MetalFigs Mini-Figures a few years back and it was a surprise set that covered many under-represented characters in the Power Rangers world. With G.I. Joe, fans can expect the same quality and array of cool characters. I hope Jada Toys continues to release these sets. Now, they did already release and reveal a six pack of these which many of us saw at Walmart (and are now on discount at Ross)– so admittedly, some of these characters are reuse. However, the price is right and if you don’t know what to do with these figures and don’t just want to fill your shelves with tiny bits, they make very nice board game tokens.
