5141 Cannon officer of the Redcoats
« on: August 31, 2011, 15:24:28 »
Not much to say here either... the uniform looks sooo good!!!



and of course... I am sue they look better in big numbers  ;D



Just one point... the torch can be bent like that... many accessories are becoming more and more like that. must be a safety precaution. It feels like bending rubber...

Interesting about the "rubber" .
But the set looks great!
Cheers!

Great review! Actually, I think the rubber is better for kids so that they don't break their toys as easily  :). It's a big change, though.

That bending torch looks odd....

So, will YOU show some restraint? :)

but i'm afraid these rubbery parts will harden and become brittle after many years  :'(
still, thanks for sharing WK!  ;)

Interesting set.
I don't like the blue barrels, and I am not a fan of the new uniform. :hmm:
Nor do I like how they made the cross belts...
I prefer the "real" cross belts. :yup:

Still, I do like some things about the new red coats...
The hats for one are nice, period too I believe. :)

I can also see that this set could be pretty useful
for those whom are making an army out of these guys. :)9

Excellent review again Pano. I agree he lloks better when accompanied by other klickies and since I am short cannon for some of my ships, I'm planning getting 10 or so of these.

My one complaint, like WoT, is the crossbelts. It would have been nice to have the old style belts.

isn't there a new redcoat without painted straps?  (strapless)  I wonder what it woud look like with the real straps from the vintage redcoats added?  best of both worlds?
