U.S. Head Set #13

by: Rob Lively [ HUSKY1943 ]


Originally published on:

Warriors continues to impress me with their offerings. This set is really functional and of great utility to the figure/dio modeler. The faces are all different, and all have the chin straps over the front lip of the helmet (where they were really worn most of the time.) This set is also very useful because these could be used from World War II through the 80's.

In the box

The molding is really well done and the almost no cleanup at all. There are only two drawbacks to this wonderful set. This set would be more accurately titled "Calm U.S. Heads set #13." Other than one guy being rather tight-lipped/determined looking, the rest look like they are standing in the chow line or sitting through mandatory training.
The other drawback (to me, anyway) is that the pour stub is on the top of the helmet and not at the bottom of the neck. This makes it very difficult to remove and could really effect the shape of the helmet. Great care must be used to round off the helmet.

Overview

All in all, I really like Warriors head set and I wish I had the other 12 as well.. Highly recommended.
Thanks to VLS for providing the review sample
