Pyro Army Troop Transport Truck - Olive Green HP

We're still looking at Pyro's larger line of plastic Army vehicles and this time my sample isn't a very pretty one. It's old, broken, scratched, has parts tore off, and is generally beat up - kinda like me LOL but it is a survivor and another example of collecting on the cheap because in this condition who else would want one except a collector nut like me? :-) These trucks normally carried six sitting figures glued on to the seats but someone tore them off perhaps in an attempt to free up more cargo sapce for their miniature convoy. Pyro used the same, lightly colored and poorly detailed sitting figure in this entire series of vehicles and many times they're broken off. I wonder if people did that because, well, because the figures suck! The truck measures 5 1/4" (13.33cm) L x 2 1/8" (5.39cm) W x 2 1/8" (5.39cm) H. I noticed that the Pyro truck looked similar to the Payton truck we blogged on Jul 16, 2016 and when I pulled out the Payton to compare they were an exact match in nearly everything but size and material. The Payton is just a tiny bit smaller, has different wheels, and is made of soft plastic vs. hard plastic, but the outline and details on both match. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
