Good review Randy.
I bought this set a few weeks ago, and was dissapointed that there was a very limited amount of armaments in the kit. The guy with pipe isn´t going to do much damage with that ... hardly gives a sense of urgency ... running and smoking his pipe? If there had of been an extra rifle, he could have been converted to something more useful.

Good review Randy.



Thank you Frank. Always a pleasure to hear from you and to get your feedback. I agree with you about the pipe smoker. I too wish there had been more or different weapons......with better detailing. A nice MAS-1938 sub-machine gun would have been a nice touch.



Thank you everyone. I always enjoy getting feedback on my reviews.

I wanted to ask, as I am curious, does anyone else think that the figures heads look too small for their bodies? Or do they just look that way to me? Just curious what the rest of you think.

Thank you,
Randy

Yes I agree that they look small but I wonder if its the bulky clothing throwing off the eye.

I don´t think it is because of the clothes that the heads look small. Look at their hands too. They look normal when compared to the whole body, but too big for the heads. These have clearly been "jibarized"
