Well, it has already been two years since I got these cool little figures of a knock-off series called S.T.O.P. vs S.C.U.M. (Special Tactics Operation Control vs. Street Coalition Urban Militia! We were shopping for Halloween decorations at our new local Dollar Tree. Whenever I'm at a Dollar Tree or a Deals I always look at the toy aisle even though most of the stuff is for little children but sometimes they do have really cool knock-off figures and when I saw S.T.O.P. vs. S.C.U.M. it was a must have! They were only a dollar - 1 buck - $1 bounce Shocked They had all but one Rolling Eyes I searched all over and had the cashier call the other store with no luck. So then I'm like well, I am a completeist so I gotta have that last guy so I had decided to get them and HOPE that I could find him online and thank goodness I was able to (more on that later).

Now, these figures are about 3 1/2" tall and in scale with G.I. Joes and others. the sculpting is very nice. Their paint isn't the greatest which I had to check each figure thoroughly which was a pain but I do love their tattoos. Their articulation is quite decent for the price and they are very durable. Their limbs are removable at the elbows and knees. They all have guns, however, they are molded/sculpted into their hands so they are not removable. They are Homieshop own creation and made by Greenbrier International Inc.

So there you go, take a gander at the pics that I took, questions? Just ask Smile

The card front & back: I like the artwork, story, and bios.  Actually a lot of thought went into this IMO!

Nice looking figures!

There's a certain charm to cheapo figures (or Christmas stocking fillers) The card art is pretty good for cheapos, and well thought out! It's usually the cheapo toys that become rare and the most collectable in the future, probably because they're not around long enough for there to be any great numbers.

As you know, I'm a big fan of the Cheapo 1/6 'Ultra Corps' figures, which are quite similar in a way to your figures above. Lanard also do a range of figures called 'The Corps' they're pretty cool mini action figures!  Very Happy

Thanks for your comment dude and you be correct about that you said! Yes, I know that you are a big fan of Lanard. I did collect their small 3 3/4 figures long ago when when G.I. Joe was was great back in the day!
