Great review, and I like the way it was presented, including the information from Taesung Harmms about the packaging. Thank you.

The product and the review are both very good. Rudi; congrats for the excellent review, it was a pleasure to add it and I think that is very good format for a review. and congrats to Taesung for the great idea representing heads and hands in the same kit.

The only thing I would have liked to see is a longer neck to make for ease of positioning on a figure.

Russ, Engin, Darren:

Thanks for your comments, lads

Darren: a fair point if using the heads on non-Alpine figures or you have to drill the neck socket out. Bear in mind however that these heads are from existing products/moulds so extending the necks would have required Alpine to create new or alter moulds. As I said though, a fair point. Thanks for commenting
