Although these have been discussed at length within the forums, these two New figure sets from Masterbox have not been covered here in the News Section.
The two New (in the stores NOW) sets are:

3575 - "Iraq Events" Set #1 U.S. Marines

3576 - "Iraq Events" Set #2 Insurgence


Both of the sets are injection-moulded and each contains 4 figures. The titles should explain clearly what each consists of.

Unfortunately, the images, which have been used in this report (and in other sources) may be a little different. They clearly show the figures In-Progress to check out the images of the production figures go here:

U.S.M.C. Set

Why cant manufacturers produce kits of the pics they put up? The masterbox site shows all the same pics we have all seen, with different weapons and such. I'll wait until someone actully buys these kits and posts the pics.

I bought both sets, if the US Set 1 had been produced as the excellent artwork depicts then we would have had a real winner. Unfortunately the only resemblance to the artwork is the poses. However the Insurgent set is excellent these will be useful in a host of different settings. Sorry I donít have photos. Cookie

I wonder the same thing, ESPECIALLY when there are real soldiers emailing these companies photos of the real people and real gear. I mean there are real GIs out there telling and showing some companies almost exactly what to make and how to which should equate to better profit if done correctly. On the other side, there are aftermarket companies like PE and resin makers who could make 1/35 PE of NVG brackets, shades, rifle slings, coiled wire, etc. to enhance those figure kits that lack such items. It's the little things added on that separate and really enhance the modernity of the figures. What's odd is that even non-US and NATO countries have radios, rifle scopes, new camo uniforms, and NVGs now so it's not as if US figures carry all this whiz-bang gadgetry when other First World Nations do now. Meaning...figure modelers are expecting these from modern figures. Figures made in Russia and Eastern Europe are equipped with comms and the latest gear. It's really time plastic figures catch up.
