Matrix Threezero Armored Personnel Unit is Ready to Take on Tiny Squiddies

by Lambert Varias

As much as I loved Niki Dregant’s LEGO version of the Armored Personnel Unit (APU) from The Matrix series, nothing beats a professional scale model. And that’s exactly what Threezero came up with. It’s 1:12 scale APU collectible stands 13.5″ tall, is fully posable and has light up guns.

To make it more realistic, the toy has metal springs, rubber hoses and movable pistons on its shoulders and legs. It also comes with a removable and fully posable pilot figure.

I know what you’re thinking: what about the ammo loaders? Threezero does have a scale model of the ground crew and their equipment, but those will be included only in the deluxe version of the APU.
