I picked up one pack from a clearance bin last year
(12 infantry), and I'd like to get hold of a few more.
The package I have says it was Imported by Brookhurst Hobbies,
Garden Grove, CA, 714-636-3580.

I haven't seen the vehicles, but I agree based on the figs I have.
They're generic SF, sort of Starship Troopers with a reality check,
nicely detailed and proportioned, with a lot of poses (I think
9 poses out of 12 figs in the pack I have).

If you do, I'll buy a bunch (only 1 or 2 armies' worth, though).
Unfortunately, the market seems to have shifted toward larger
scales in recent years.
