Cheap, yes, but definitely not "inexpensive". The plastic marvels
turned-out by the Anvilus Plastic Works have definitely achieved first
place in the "cheap-looking" category. (Rumor has it that Fred Simms is
"easy" as well as "cheap" ;-)
However, with regard to "oddest", based on a series of spectator
interviews, exit polls, market acceptance panels and blind-tests
conducted by the world-famous O-de-Pact (Tri-Pact's exclusive Marketing
Agency based in Paris), the T-34 consistently comes out ahead of the
Hetzer in the "Oddity" category. Apparently, the average spectator
considers the Hetzer to be more "cute" than "odd", because it reminds
them of a harmless child's toy, not a war machine. In fact, the Hetzer
got the highest score from the "Girls 4-10yrs" group, because they
thought it would be a nice vehicle for Barbie to drive around in.

Tri-Pact welcomes the oppportunity to once again ensure peace through
superior fire-power. New vehicles will be conducting field trials
shortly and will be ready to join the veteran force by the end of
October. Furthermore, a growing group of volunteers will be on-hand to
help move Tri-Pact supplies and weapons as needed on the battlefield.
