This evening I decided I would do a quick glue together of a couple of packets of the zombie/mutant types. They were, for want of a better term, a bloody nightmare!
If you look at the two stood up beside each other. Notice the tabs on the bases. A lot of the joints looked something similar. It definitely wasn’t a case of ‘insert slot A in hole B’. Now I haven’t done huge amounts of Mantic stuff before. But this has nearly put me off for life. I am not sure if I was really lucky last time, or really unlucky this time. If it wasn’t for the Mantic plastic feel I would have said these were recasts.
On the up side the truck went together without any fuss or hassle.

Hi Stephen. I think I can help you out with these photos. I will send an email to your email address rather than make a lengthy post here.
Reblogged this on ausevor.
I imagine they have changed their plastic since their first Dreadball and Deadzone kickstarters. At least I sure hope they did, because they were horrible!
That is not good from such a big company- I’ve only ever made up 5 mantic figures (zombies as it happens) but had no problems with them.
The lack of instructions for construction of their figures is one I’ve had myself, and as said above just isn’t good enough from a company that hopes to compete with the likes of GW.
To be fair these may have had instructions, but based on some of my other ones I purchased then I doubt it.
