    New, heavily equipped IJA soldier from PATTIZ....

    Jaime posted this link on FB, which features a new WW2 Japanese soldier from the Shantou City Chenghai Pattiz Toys Factory, which has been building up their level of quality in onesix military figures, for the last few years - PATTIZ ???1/6 ???????? ????????-??????? - Powered by Discuz!

    If this figure is anything like shown in these pics, it is like the equivalent to the old DML 'SOLDAT' concept. I hope this comes to fruition, and of a proper quality.

    Light years difference from the old 21st Century offering
    I'll be a story in your head, but that's OK we're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one!

    Very, very nice. I was just looking at my old bbi and DiD Japs and thinking I ought to get them all setup again, at present they're languishing in a couple of cardboard boxes awaiting some TLC! If this comes off it should keep folks in lots of spare for some time to come! Most everything here has been released by others over the years but it's great to see it all together, I'm especially loving the Tabi's! and the Gas mask, not seen either of those before!

    Overbearing nationalistic political message aside, awesome updated figure!

    Looks like they signed with a better manufacture facility again.

    This is an awesome set, I saw the price online and it’s not much more than the price of an Alert Line set

    A lot of less mass produced, high quality gear!!

    Great looking set!
    The HMG alone makes this worth getting.
    Even though one can't help but notice lots of these recent Japanese sets are more focused on the pre-WWII era Sino-Japanese War in mainland China.
    But overall the gear and weapons are useful for later WWII Pacific and China/Burma/India theater bash subjects. Just switch into tropical uniform so no problem there.

    Good start, hopefully soon we'll see a Type 96 or 99 LMG, and a Type 99 Arisaka short rifle which are all in short supply nowadays.

    Looks fantastic. Have no idea on accuracy, hopefully those that know will comment. But as of now I'm getting this for sure.

    On the BBICN forum they said there is also a Chinese soldier coming soon so it seems they are gonna make a line of figures from this era.

    The rest of the comments there are mostly political (sensitive subject there, mostly along the lines of "if you buy a Jap soldier you are not a true Chinese patriot") or nit-picky ("why does he have a grenade launcher? and where is the grenade bag to go with it?"). So basically like Sideshow Freaks lol

    The sculpt, figure, and the entire kit look very good to me.

    That's promising, particularly if they really detail the soldier. I hope this would be one of the units that had the non-blue uniform, tho that would be all right too. There's so many nice bits they could issue, but a Marlin United Defense M42 would be wonderful ( a guy can dream). Again, some winter issue clothing would be a seller for me, too.

    For sure.

    The Chinese soldier might be a buy for me as I have a nice little collection of Chinese soldier figures and weapons so would make a good addition, especially if the price stays low (on BBICN the price is stated to be between 400 and 500 yuan)

    Re: New, heavily equipped IJA soldier from PATTIZ....

    is that a retail price? According to Google conversion rate 500 Yuan is about $75 USD, that's waaaay below the price I'd expect for a figure packing this much gear. Does this mean that they could, theoretically, release basic figures for the old price of $30 USD? God, I hope so because the only way we are going to re-grow this hobby is via reduced prices, the price hikes in recent years has really driven a lot of people out of the hobby and made it a lot less fun than it once was!

    Just if the quality is close to the preview photos it will be a must purchase.
