Some great looking new figure sets are on the way from Master Box that has US soldiers on the move, German soldiers plan defense, and a civilian with a bike.
Master Box continues to release some great looking and useful figure sets. The latest announcement has a new seven figure set of US soldiers storming the beach in Operation Overlord and a six figure set of Germanís going over either a defense or counter attack plan. There is also a new civilian figure with a bike that looks to load with what he could scrounge, looks to very useful for a diorama.

35130 - "Move, Move, Move!!!" U.S. Soldiers, Operation Overlord Period, 1944 - 7 Figures Set
35162 - "Let's Stop Them Here!" German Military Men, 1945 - 6 Figures Set

According to Dragon Models USA these new figures sets should be available in November 2014.

The civvy refugee looks very nice. Good to see a manufacturer doing something other than just endless boxes of germans! Keep it up Masterbox.

All very useful and well done figures once again from MB!! Good job! I love the German guy looking over the officers' shoulder. "You're putting us WHERE? Are you f...king CRAZY?" Nice stuff and nice to see some Heer guys with the characteristic Normandy era Heer smocks. Looking at fig releases one would think there was only WaffenSS troops in the German army. J

As much as I like the German group, those GIs have sold me. Must buy.

I agree with you Nathan, Dragons figures are hitting the bottom of the barrle and the customer service is less than desirable any more. I personally think M.B. has stepped up to the plate with the figure releases. The U.S. troopers look fantastic and combined with other figures will do greatly for any beach dio. And the civilian hits my taste for what I do now. I don't do German stuff any more but they look pretty good too. I will be p/u two each of the U.S. troops and the civilian as soon as they are available. Great job as ussual M.B. Now if I could only get rid of the 60 or sets of Dragon German figures so I can p/u more M.B. sets I'd be one happy camper.

When it comes to injection moulded figures there are 5 companies I pay attention to: MiniArt MasterBox Bronco Models ICM Zvezda All five of these companies release some interesting combinations and as a rule they go together well. I will also say that MasterBox has excellent customer service, it is fast, painless and a positive experience.

What happened to Dragon (Gen2), where and when available?
OCT 26, 2014 - 04:21 AM
Sorry Biggles I was never a huge fan of Gen 2 figures, I know they appealed to some but I do not believe they had the appeal some think. I would have expected Dragon to continue releasing them if I am wrong in that belief. Now there Premium figure releases did appeal to me as a common modeller, as they had everything in the box and offered options.
