I bought a box of action figures (over 60 figures). I've identified just about every one except this large monster ...

A 3 3/4 inch figure is next to it for scale.

Any reply is appreciated.

That's a Starship Troopers insect drone. I was not aware that that movie had a toyline, however.

It's kinda cool. How's the articulation?

Hey Shelhead,

Thanks for the ID.

The best way to describe the articulation is a universal joint. the tops section rotates 360 degrees. The "jaw" opens and closes.

The bottom 4 legs and top 2 legs have a full shoulder rotation as well.

The battery operated sound makes a "crunching, munching" noise.

It will be a cool piece to make a few action figure scenes ...

here is the monster in action http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84k8GsLNmCc

If I remember correctly the toy line was done by Trendmasters.
