    Also a nice parcel from the usa showed up on the doorstep the last days (https://www.customdioramics.com/shop/):

    Including some nice rerelease figures:

    General von Kleist (LL-070)

    Now some final words to the big loot:
    - very good cast quality (only some airholes)
    - nice details of the figures
    - fast shipping
    - but some of the movie figures are much bigger than 1:16 (Especially the raven. Please remind the original masters are older than 20 years.)

    Im very glad that the figures are available again from Jose Rodriguez!
    It will be a pleasure to buy more of his rereleases the next time.

    Evidently very old and the moulds past their prime, but workable..and not expensive

    They do take me back some. Good to see their return.

    The molds are completely new and the masters are reworked in some points.

    Hi Patrick

    Thanks for a look at these figures , many will I am sure be happy to see them being rereleased

    Casting blocks look quite large but in a good position to access to deal with

    Good to see how well packed they were as well ...credit to L &L

    Happy benchtime with these

    First off, they are brand new molds, not old molds. Second, they may be "old" masters but they are a lot better than you give them credit for and are selling very well. Simple packaging, simple marketing, and not overpriced like most of the other stuff available in 120mm.

    Thanks for the criticism, it only makes me want to do better.

    I own the original masters of Legends & Lore Resin Figures as well as Custom Dioramics and even some of the original Kirin Scale Figures which I will be releasing in the future. The L&L & CD were purchased from Squadron/MMD and Kirin one's from the original sculptors or those who owned the right to them or were part owners of the company like Ben Jakopsen who was a dear friend of mine. All these products are made from the original old masters some of which have been updated and cleaned up.

    Hi everyone

    PF is a great place where constructive comments are welcome ...this has got a little chaotic

    Rather than use a review or figure release announcement use the PM facility

    Jose has cast all from masters or reworked as he has said , he is clearly passionate about the hobby as well

    .....and it's great that L & L are sharing releases many previously OOP ..long may it continue

    Thanks to Patrick fir sharing the pieces here as well

    I will moderate this thread as I see right ......members are free to PM me if they wish

    Thank you for your support and thanks to José for the release details

    Stay safe

    Happy benchtime
