    The skin tones on the box art are the best I've seen in long a long time.

    Grüß Di' Bergkameraden,

    Here are some Gebirgsjäger portraits from my collection showing a variety of scarves being worn that you can use as a reference for this figure's scarf.

    That's why they're consistently brilliant,
    and probably some of the best busts on the market.
    But that's just my opinion,

    Oh well - the boring posts on Young releases are not so exciting as well. Given that this nice review was posted by Guy on Sept 17, 2012 since then all has been said repeatedly about a certain style, similarities, themes etc. Re-posting is boring/whoring for attention.
