Earlier this month, ThreeZero revealed they were making some beautiful, 1:6 scale figures based on the post-apocalyptic RPG series Fallout. But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to “ridiculously cool/expensive toys”, these new figures might just fit the bill: A fraction of the cost, but still completely awesome.
