Rebel Soldier 4-up Hardcopy Paint Master (088-003)
Showcased here is a painted Rebel Soldier 4-up. One may also refer to this piece as a paintmaster. This pose is designated by the number 088-003. The first three digits represent the Build Your Armies mail-away set, while the last three indicate the particular character/pose.

A 1:1 unpainted micro was included in the above pictures to give a sense of the immense size of the 4-up compared to the production toy's size.

Collectors often seek out other prototypes to compliment one currently in his/her collection. Alex has gathered up a number of 1:1 prototypes matching the paintmaster. From left to right we see: two production micros, an unpainted micro, hand painted micro, and a hand painted squeezing. Thanks to Alex for sharing this fine micro run with his fellow Micro Collection enthusiasts!
