Superb! I’ve been hoping Alpine would do a (dedicated) later war Panzer IV turret crew set. Nice work Tae.


(Oh, and by the way Peter - I would love to see you paint these too).

I’m sorry to be negative and I’m ready to be shouted at, but more Germans? Really? Yawn!

Can’t we have some more original figures? Post war stuff, Modern US/UK/NATO, middle eastern troops?

Given the number of modern AFVs out there nowadays, please help us out.

Like it or not Taesung adds to his product range what he knows sells. He's running a business to make money, and he's openly stated that his best selling figures are Axis subjects.

You may not like it but if it was your business what would you do in the same position? Produce items you know will sell and see a return on your investment, or go for other subjects that may please those who have a dislike or no interest in figures from the WW2 Axis campaigns and barely if at all cover the cost of your investment. "Originality" is great as long as it makes money on that originality...

He does in fact have quite a few figures in his range that are WW2 Allied and some up to date US tank crewmen. Other manufactures do more modern Russian subjects such as Evolution etc and some of the others you list are covered Valkyrie - See here

I know many people think that I am lacking imagination
when it comes to the figure subjects and poses.

But the subjects are chose carefully according to the
responses coming from the retailers you buy figures from.
They should have the accurate data what sells and not.
I'm not here to fill the niches in the market.

The poses are also designed carefully to be casting-friendly.
IMHO, the easier it casts, the cleaner the parts are.
The cleaner the parts are, the happier modelers are.
