I know I could use some more of these… though I wonder if there are going to be any changes to the molds we saw used before (doubt it). I know their weapons could use some tweaking, and I wouldn’t mind some new head sculpts as well. Hopefully the whole set will retail for under $50.

Maybe if they sell enough figures, Tieka Toys will consider doing alternate sets… perhaps some modern Russians? Or Chinese? We can hope! There was supposed to be a WWII German line from them, but it never materialized.

We’ve reached out to Merit International for additional details and pricing, and will update the story if we hear anything from them regarding the new OurWar figures.
