Thanks Adam, I forgot all about ZY Toys, I might have to check that out. Mixing and matching stuff rarely works for me though, usually only works with Black colored gear. Regardless SS should come out with more robust complete well rounded kits on there figures, many of us have made many comments to include more variety of pouches, belts and other assorted gear over the years.
So Soldier Story I know your listening ....usually what Soldier Story does is release the pieces of gear several years down the line...product placement to sell other not so well received figures. I'll give you a prime example. So say I wanted a complete Multicam kitted figure. Vest, Belt, Pistol Pouch, Grenade Pouch, Radio Pouch, Backpack, Dump Pouch.
I'd buy the Famcon (Vest) then USAF PJ Set (Belt) mind you there are 3, then I'd have to buy the NSW Seal Aor2 Gunner to get a few more Multicam pouches then I'd have to buy NSW Snow Operator to get the (backpack) new SDU Multicam figure to get the (radio/dump pouch).
5 Whole figures to get 1 semi complete Multicam Kit for 1 guy.
One of the reasons why I believe DAM Toys has been successful, there figures are just more well rounded & complete. Soldier Story needs to look at what made there older figures a hit like US Army in Afghanistan Gunner, US Army 10th SF, USMC 1st Mob, Seal Team 10, 1st SFOD
