Some interesting creations on offer here.
















They come in multiple scales too.

Very cool! Thereís a definite Steampunk meets Mad Max at Burning Man vibe! As nice as the vehicles are, Iím slightly more intrigued by the figures.

It looks like they threw some steampunk/dieselpunk/wargaming/anime tropes into a bag, added some Daz 3D generated figures and printed what stuck together.

Nah. The DAZ 3D program is mildly useful for making 3D figures, but the whole culture/ community built around that product is mildly creepy.

Yeah, definitely one of those niche categories that used to be the domain of the old metal Phoenix Phollies Dollies in years past.  The vehicles all look like they were from a Mad Max universe.

Found another modelling niche that I hate, to go with egg-planes/super deformed models!

Whilst most of them don't do much for me being too Mad Max style, I don't mind this one:






Paint it up with shiny metal like on the box art and it could be nice:

Same sentiment, but with a proper British accent:
