Thanks Randy,

That was good review .
It was even better having the figures glued together to show the physical look and layout .
DML have done a well detailed figure set with photo etch which is perfect .
The only concern is the head quality detail.
The heads unfortunately do not give them an individual preference .
What I mean is they all look the same.
I change the heads out all the time as unfortunately we have not got there with the detail yet.
I'm not canning the quality it's just that as a modeller it would be good if we could get some individual variation.

Sometimes MB has actual expressions on their figures' faces, however resin replacements (Hornet, ie.) is usually the way to go.

Thank you Michael, I always appreciate getting feedback. I am glad that my review and the assembled figures were of use to you. I like to show the figures assembled and not cleaned up or anything to show how they fit together.

My main complaint with their figures is that it seems on their last few sets the arms don't fit well and leave gaps when attached to the torso. Not a huge issue....but still.

Thanks again,
Randy
