Mars Japanese Paratroopers WH

A1

Sergey shared a sneak peak of the World War II Japanese in 1/32 scale. Here are four of the figures that will be included in this set. The Zombie Pirates, German Panzergrenadiers and Japanese Paratroopers should be released by the end of the summer. An eBay dealer from the Ukraine made a mistake by listing some sets this week that are still unavailable.

The poses are based on the same poses from the 1/72 set. But they look a little different. I am excited to see this set released now after see this first four figures.
