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.

LEGO Matrix Armored Personnel Unit: There is No Armor

Robo-Boots Give a Powerful Boost to Your Every Step
Aging is part of being human. Eventually, that spring in your step will be replaced by a slow (but hopefully steady) pace as you near your sixties.
