Aliens iconic A.P.C. is one of the Marines main tools and this piece of machinery as given us over the years much fun in gaming Aliens . In the RPG many enjoyed at first its hard shell safety and very superior fire power in games were the Marines were power brokers to break a strike, rescue hostages or against the Aliens themselves. Also as there play developed and the characters became more real to them, and the A.P.C. a true tool, they learned the true aspects of an A.P.C. and that at times they must disembark and be on foot with the vehicle in reserve to save them or give support fire. If no drone shots existed of a building layout they got quite canny in not entering the vehicle first and lowering the gun to clear obstacles, checking for cellars before parking in a building. Yes many of these thing and more I hit them with first but in relatively short time and lots of fun they treated it as real.
We were lucky to play with one of the best examples only a toy but very realistic and many working features I`m giving mine a remake new front shackle pins from cheap jewellry pieces for all, plus, new paint jobs, and transfers to suit. I`ll post more as they develop.

Looks the the old Galoob A.P.C. with a new paintjob. Available from time to time on Ebay, but be prepared for sticker shock. Long out of production, so you know how that goes...

It would be a lot cheaper to wait for the Prodos one that was recently announced.
