Some less than stellar reviews coming in on the "Modern Troops" exclusive SDCC 4-pack. Not to worry Matt, I'm still happy to get them when they arrive!
BTW I'm gonna pay you... Honest.
The whole wave, from what I'm hearing, is underwhelming in sculpt... Articulation lacking on some. I can first-hand confirm that the U.S. Spec. Forces guy (Donned in a kind of "Hunting Bin Laden" digs) does NOT have nice leg sculpt, or articulation. It's like his articulation's too low... Very strange.
That figure, at least, isn't one of their better sculpts, and from what I can see one of the Afghani guys looks similar.
The Royal Marine and other Afghani I'm hoping for good things on. We'll see when I get ahold ofo them.
Evilchuk at GP's was giving a little review, and mentioning he has a lot of Eversparkle's interlocking playset. Wonder what he thinks of those though? I got one of those n the way too as I've noted. Should be good news on that at least.
I'm still happy to get at least 2 half-decent looking figures from that modern set, including a freakin' middle-eastern guy. I mean, if you asked me last year if we'd ever see Iraqi's or Afghani's, or a militant muslim looking guy I'd have said never in a million years. Now look... Go figure.
