SMUToys Review Featuring: M.A.R.S. Troopers!

11.04.2011 – Looking for odd but worth buying action figures you just want for your Toy Photography or to tinker around and custom for your next personal project?

Then the M.A.R.S. Heroes is one suggestion for you to pick up and take home.

They don’t have any supporting media like comics, TV, or videogames but it sure is one of those action figures worth giving a second look. M.A.R.S Heroes is a little known line of 4" action figures by HAP-P-Kid. These saw a limited release in the US, as well as here in the Philippines.

There are three types’ action figures -- Trooper, Alien, and MegaBot. The Trooper mostly can blend with your 1:18 scale action figures from G.I. Joe or Marvel Universe which resembles the Terran Marine from Starcraft videogame.

There are three different versions of each type, sharing the same bodies, but different colors, heads, and accessories. These are a great addition/alternative to any 1:18 scale collection.

The most interesting figure among the pack is a personal favorite. Especially like the green M.A.R.S Trooper because it's a lot like halo's master chief. This follows with the gray M.A.R.S Trooper which makes a great space marine type character.

All the parts are interchangeable, so you can mix and match to your hearts desire. Here's a couple of ideas we can suggest for you try out...

Recently reports of these figures started appearing in the 5th Warehouse Toy Sale at SM Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall.

Special acknowledgement to SMUToys for providing the images and the action figures which originally appeared in the photo review back in 2008.
