    Who sells OWN Japanese figures in the US?

  2. Fritz Juengling says:

    This might not assuage your disappointment in not getting OWN, but Armies in Plastic also did Russians and Japanese for this conflict.

      The AIP japanese are correct well done for this war and or previews Sino Japanese war ,but the Russian are not quite well done x the conflict neither for the Boxer rebellion ,yet could be used .The cossacks made by AIP could be used also too.Because simplicity of AIP uniforms they can be pass for some other period if not that quite accurate easy .
      best..

    I need mention something ,all do these figures are pretty much well done ,they made A BIG historical mistake in some …
    The Japanese army since 1874 had adopted a new type swords resembling american and french style officer swords of time .-Kyo Gunto swords.
    http://www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=USS118&name=Russo-Japanese+Kyu+Gunto+Army+Sword+

    Nothing to be with traditional Gunto katana swords at all ,neither the technique of using it was trained at military academies at all but the european and western swords tradition tec massively implemented as well .

    The use of KATANA start again official use in Navy and Army in 1934/1936 with introduction of Shin guntō resembling the early medium size katana style swords but not a Katana please!!!
    There three full great epic japanese war films about this war (Japanese are very accurate about their weaponry in films ) ,none portray a single japanese with old traditional sword-katana,neither photos of them in battle are found,yet few may had carry it or not could be ,to made two NCO figures in with then as is a wrong= mistake .
    The swords looks very alike old traditional KATANA that would be only given to great officer if any to use.Not a single main officer in photos documentary is portray as that either.The poses looks more as if they are executing some one too .

    OWN brand did much more correct uniforms and of course swords and the right exact two rifles that were lighter and thinner than Russian models by specific demand of japanese army the models Arisaka type 22 and 30 .
    The figures of EB have poor detail wrong type rifles done too.
    Last the Officer made by EB with two revolvers (very crude done) looks a very cowboy repeated pose made before i think for typical japanese officer.
    Even AIP brand did japanese with right swords and better rifles.
    The set by EB lack my interest as they waste the few action poses in non historical correct or/AND odd poses .
    The Russian are interesting still a mix of non action poses too .
    my thoughts.

    “FIRING POSES”
    ALWAYS COVER THE BASICS!
    KNEELING SHARPSHOOTING and STANDING SHARPSHOOTING in a set like this should always be established FIRST!

  5. ERWIN SELL says:

    Yes several of these poses set are very wasted poses in my opinion,still it is generally a perception of this maker making sets as not action pose typical but representing several armies units and plenty officer per set every time.So i guess maker decision is his own and as limited run done will sale good i hope and wish for him.
    The colors given as far i red are not quite well chosen either but again x most europan that paint figures are perfect too.
    my thoughts..

  6. r smith says:

    nicely done,,unfortunately the Russians have discovered absurd pricing I cant collude for these

  7. TDBarnecut says:

    Agree on the pricing (too high) but that will not change. Think of them as ‘works of art’ instead of toy soldiers.

  8. ERWIN SELL says:

    The california seller Scott informe agai he will have these sets as well new last Basevich Figures sets(Russo Japanese war) for better lower price as usual than any and direct from here US of course soon.
