Jim takes a quick look at one of the more recent figure sets to be released by Dragon.

Hi,

Thanks Jim for this review. Pictures can worth thousands of words..
From what I see this set looks really cool. For me the last part plastic manufacturer need to improve on are the faces. Masterbox for example always made the same type of sqaure heads. But in this dragon set, figures heads look weel proportionnated and do reflect individuality. For the rest, notably equipements, Dragon still is the best offer on the market.

Best,
Julien

Thanks for the review, Jim (BTW, should this be an In-Box or a First Look review? ) Great photos as always.

I really like these DML sets based on the Concord drawings. They provide great alternatives to resin figures - and from what I've read across figure forums are well-received as such (by figure modellers of course).

Other that from DML USA, is this set readily available yet? I couldn't find them on the Cyber-Hobbies site a fortnight ago.
