Banimon Red Army T-011 Bunkerbuster Tank VehicleI missed the first drop for the yellow one, so I was happy to see that the swell Red Army T-011 Bunkerbuster Tank didn't sell out immediately. I'm sure the price had something to do with it - $30 is on the high end of these smaller vinyl items, even if it has a lot of paint, stickers, and options. It's also the first toy I've bought in ages that actually was designed to make good use of all those extra Glyos heads you've been storing in boxes for the last few years. It's quite versatile and as it can fit most Glyos figures, heads, or even 3 3/4-inch action figures, it's easily the best Glyos-compatible vehicle to date. If you're a toy collector and you also like Glyos, this (or a subsequent recolor) is an essential purchase.

If you like Metal Slug this may well grab your attention. The military green tank has some black paint on the sides of the treads, a white tampo on top, and some yellow stickers in addition to two grey painted spots on the bottom that you'll probably never notice. There's also a green stripe around the barrel of the gun. I would've loved painted treads, but I won't complain about what we did get. It's good.

One of the features that makes this vinyl toy astonishingly different is the inclusion of 6 different places to mount a Glyos peg part. The treads have 4, there's one on the back of the canopy, and there's one inside the turret. I wasn't able to easily mount a head on the treads, but it was easier in the other locations. I'm particularly taken with how well thought out the interior of this little vehicle was, particularly in how it was designed to be compatible with numerous figures.

If you pop off the lid, you can see there's a hole for a head in there - or you can put a Mordle in there, for example. This is a great idea because you can put your spare Banimon figure heads to good use here, or any of those Govurom or Pheyden heads you're stockpiling. But you can also put a whole figure in there - pop off that inner lid, and you can fit figures up to the 3 3/4-inch size in there with no real problems. I'm pretty surprised - I managed to cram Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper in there fairly easily. That means they designed a vehicle to use with multiple figure scales, which is a tough thing to do well.

My order also included a bonus white Banigoth unpainted head.

Banimon Red Army T-011 Bunkerbuster Tank Vehicle$30 isn't a whole lot more than the $25 of most new smaller Star Wars ships, so considering the small edition size it's something of a bargain to get yourself a Banimon tank. It is rather small, though, as it's only 4 1/2-inches tall. It feels big enough and has just enough bulk to be a satisfying little toy, and all the pieces hold together well save for the very top - if you hold the tank by the top, it falls off. Everything else connects nicely and most importantly, it looks cool. If you had this on your desk someone might assume you got some cool weird 1980s Japanese tank toy that they never heard of, and it is a cute little toy. Do get one, it's fun.
