  1. Oh man, besides M.U.S.C.L.E and M.I.M.P, Army Ants were my third mini figure love of the 80s. I'd love to snag a full set of them some day. So awesome!

    1. Yeah! There are also different colored ones released in Europe that I'd like to get a hold of. I think they're called Kombattini or something like that.
