Hi there

Thanks for the review. Looks interesting, and with the Char Bis tank some really interesting dios could be made.

Thanks again

Greetings: Vinnie, I don't know how much pull you have with Dragon, but what I thought would be an interesting area in which Dragon could explore--and that is hand to hand combat summer and winter in the East. There are so many option with which Dragon could exploit = lots of revenue (which is why all companies exist). I was also like to see them manufacture into the idea of Russian tank riders in the winter phase (as the Russians lacked armor persnonel carriers). I just wanted to see if you could simply suggest these thoughts to Dragon as they seem to have you review their latest products. Thanks, and Kind Regards--Brian

Interesting set indeed.
5 figures instead of the usual 4 and two different styles - action and casual.
Will be interesting to watch how this develops.

Good review, Vinnie. Interesting subjects, but I will have to say this is "yet another German figure set". I like the France 1940 theme, and both the PzB39 crew, and the early Sturmgeschutze crew are good to have.

I do hope Dragon continues with this range of figures based on the Concord book (CPC-6001) Blitzkrieg 1939-41, with all the Ron Volstad artwork. If you dont have this book, its well-worth picking up

Pre-orders are in, and I will be looking forward to seeing these new figures arrive !

Cheers !!
