Hasegawa offers this 1/12th Toy Machine to its expanding collection of 1/12th furniture for offices and schools.

The kit provides parts for two Toy Machines that can be used as "stand alone" devices, mounted one on top of the other, or mounted side-by-side. There are some "toy capsules" that are included. A small plastic bag contains some yellow, red, blue and green spheres, and there are a dozen blue/clear spheres that must be snapped together.

As advertised, the Toy Machines do not require painting, and with the exception of one part they snap together with precision. The only issue I found was that Part A3, the turntable within the machine, did not fit as well as the other parts. A few swipes with a sanding stick took care of the problem.

A number of "signs" are provided on a piece of high gloss paper, and after cutting the favored sign from the sheet, it slips nicely into the machine.

Fast, fun, and amazingly attractive when completed, this product will add "zip" to any diorama scene in which it is used.

Thanks to Hobbico and Hasegawa for providing this review sample to IPMS/USA. More "office furniture" reviews will be forthcoming shortly.
