Niche military action figure line Acid Rain is expanding with a fresh vehicle/figure combo called the Wildebeest.
I’m not all that familiar with Acid Rain as a toy line. Then again, a lot of people might be in that same boat. It’s not a mass market thing. Acid Rain is more of a couture toy line, one that looks like it sports some quality detail and paint apps.
Both of those elements look like they carry over into this latest offering too – the Wildebeest.
The pack includes both a vehicle and a rider, both cast in the 1:18th scale, which is pretty much G.I. Joe scale. The bike, which is the actual Wildebeest, is what it is, but the rider is a little more interesting.
Not only does this figure include standard “cavalry” gear, but also a set of field medic equipment. Both look pretty cool, but I love the inclusion of the medical gear since it isn’t all that often that toy lines produce them.
The Wildebeest is set to ship out in March, and will run you $65.00 USD.
Here’s the official rundown:
Acid Rain Field Wildebeest WB3f
To satisfy mobility needs on the battlefield, the Agurts military imported the ORV-M from Central Europe’s largest vehicle manufacturer, Manfred. The ORV-M was a dual-sport motorcycle designed to enhance durability and increase market penetration. Simple and durable, the design sports low body weight, low failure rate and low maintenance costs.
After numerous adjustments on the ORV-M design, the Agurts military finally created a speedy, lightweight and operationally practical military motorcycle with an elite suspension system that facilitates smooth transport. The model was named Wildebeest WB3f.
The Wildebeest WB3f can weather rapid speeds in a variety of mountainous, desert and jungle terrains, and can withstand the impact of over 20 foot jumps. When deployed alone on the battlefield, they typically act as rapid transportation for weapons, ammunition and supplies across all types of battlefields and terrains. Often used in rapid attacks, reconnaissance and emergency responses, the Wildebeest WB3f has been widely distributed to various brigades of the Agurts military.
