B2.Five Acid Rain Agurts Military 88th Sand Delux Set

 

The new B2.Five Acid Rain line from Skronex and Beaver goes live in the official B2.Five Shop tomorrow, Wednesday, September 27th.  As such, we wanted to save the largest set for last in our set of wave 1 reviews! 

The B2.Five Acid Rain Agurts Military 88th Sand Delux Set is definitely the set you’ll want to go after if you’re looking for the full B2.Five Acid Rain Experience. The set includes:

  • Stronghold ST1s with Sol Commander and Rifle
  • Speeder MK1s with Pilot and Pistol

Beaver has done an absolutely amazing job of capturing the essence of Kit’s 1:18th scaled Acid Rain figures. From the “Four Eyes” Stronghold to the unique design on the hood of the speeder, this are amazingly faithful recreations of their larger counterparts. I’ve gathered a gallery of nearly 40 images showcasing this “delux set” alongside it’s Jungle, R711 and Stealth counterparts. I can’t wait to see what Wave 2 brings us!

You can check our the full gallery and join in on the discussion after the break on the Cobra Island Forums

B2.Five Acid Rain Agurts Military K6 Jungle Stronghold ST2k Review

The new B2.Five Acid Rain line from our friends at Skronex and Beaver is set to launch this coming Wednesday, September 27, 2017. In anticipation of the launch, we’re pleased to bring you reviews all weekend long of the first wave of figures from this fantastic new line!

We here at Cobra Island have been in love with the Stronghold ever since the Acid Rain line first came on to the scene. In reviewing the K6 Jungle Stronghold, you’ll immediately note that this is nothing like the 1:18th version: The green here isn’t weathered, but bold and vibrant. The articulation, as with all B2.Five offerings, is absolutely incredible.

We’ve collected a gallery of 40 images for your viewing pleasure and a review that you can check out by reading more below. Don’t forget to visit the official B2.Five shop on September 27th to pick up your own set! You can share your thoughts on our review on the Cobra Island Forums

B2.Five Acid Rain Agurts Military R711 Speeder MK1r Review

Hot on the heels of our B2.Five Acid Rain Agurts Military K6 Jungle Soldier Review comes our next look at another item from Series 1 – The Agurts Military R711 Speeder MK1r!

Although we’ve seen speeders in Sand, Jungle & Stealth themes, this is our first time receiving a speeder in vibrant colors, namely blue and orange. Both the Pilot and Speeder share similar markings and a pair of bunny ears, hopefully making this particular pilot lucky on the battlefield.
