I too am looking forward in seeing (late)WWI German figures for many years now but this disaster and DiD's previous released German WWI figure will not be included in my collection.
I would kindly ask DiD to stop taking the easy and quick road and focus on historical accuracy. Details like tunic buttons, stitching or material choice for example could drastically change the whole appearance of the figure.
The sales would be so much higher, i can guarantee it.
DiD has always produced interesting figures and tackled rare projects like the Rudolf Anhalt figure for example but as always missing on the details, which is truly a shame.
