    I thought I saw a new Airborne figure by Soldiers on line. Only a primed figure but awesome looking none the less. Does anyone remember seeing this? If so (even if it's not by Soldiers) can you give me the link. Also, does anyone have any info. on this figures release date? Thanks, Jim

    By the way, I just recently made it back on line after being introduced to the wonderful world of reformatting your hard drive. GREAT (!!!!!!!) fun and I highly recomend this to everyone. All of you should try it. Please, no weapons handy as I don't want to be responsible for what you do to yourself or your computer!

    Incidentally, I found that on the Michigan Toy Soldier web site and they also have these really cool Samurai's.

    They are toys but check this figure out:

    It's a beautiful looking figure that's for sure, the stance and attitude are superb, better than the Micheal Roberts figure which some say it's modelled on.
    Would love one of these myself.

    I think it's apples and oranges. The MR ltd. figure is a 54mm and this one is a 90mm. I haven't seen one in the round, but I think it would doing something to be better than the MR ltd figure. That particular figure is the best detailed 54 I've ever painted. They're both based on a photo in "Military Classics Illustrated", with small details changed. There was a time I would have bought it anyway just because of the subject. I love that M42 jumpsuit.

    John, I've not seen the picture that the figures were based on, I just think this figure has more character than the MR piece because of it's stance and position of the head, I've always thought the MR figure looks dead and for that reason have never bought it despite it's detail.

    I know some guys have swapped out the head on that guy. I would like to see the Soldiers figure painted up.

    Is the Micheal Roberts figure metal or resin, if its resin it wouldn't be difficult to add a little more life to it.
