The usual mix of scales of figures and vehicles can be annoying to some but is full of potential across a range of scales.
These were a useful set of civilian or military safari or zoo figures that I got at a discount, not Pound store materials but certainly useful plastic figures and lorries to accompany some of my Pound Store Plastic conversions.

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures.
I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures.
Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules.
To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

Those safari figures are really nicely sculpted with the kind of crisp detail that I like to paint.
They are good figures just an expensive roundabout way to acquire them, although arguably the £3 per set on average includes a free lorry and plastic animal.

Yes, a lorry each seems very generous for a team of four people.
On an entirely separate topic – just enjoying my cup of Camp coffee! Surprisingly sweet but not unpleasant. Low caffeine has got to be a bonus.
It’s taste took me back to coffee’s had at my great aunt’s house and I wonder if she was a fan. It may well become a regular painting session beverage.
One lorry, one person, one animal per set or pack … but worth it.
Glad you liked Camp Coffee, I had some last week.
