    I like the idea to recycle or re-release the old Dragon Figures. The box arts from Volstad were really great but the old plastic Figures weren´t so good in Detail.

    These two Figures looks like exact copys from the old Dragon SEAL and LRRP sets but it seem they have better Uniform and Equipment Details. The Standing Figure is much more an LRRP than SEAL with that M16-bandoleer. Because the Figure is from the old Dragon LRRP set ;-).

    The boonie Looks like 1:1 copy of the old Dragon ones the same for the jungle boots. That could be done better by today standards especially for an Resin Figure which costs about 13€ each.

    I like the kneeling SEAL a lot but i am ambivalent about this set. For an fair final judgment i would like to see better Detail photos or the final resin parts.

    It is an good idea to recycle the old Dragon Figures but it could be done better. Have a look at the new Bravo-6 Huey Crew. Nearly the same Price if you take them separate but much better in Detail.

    thanks to comment ;)
    other figures from the Vietnam War will surely follow, Radek would no longer think or work. I think that some gear and equipment over time certainly appears
