Thank you for getting this sorted James.
I request that anyone viewing this takes a look at the “Operation Milkman” review and lets me know which approach they like best, I ask as I tried two methods of reviewing built figures and would like to know which you feel is the most informative/helpful.

Great review Darren, definitely a set to put on the list.

As for your question about review styles: Personally I prefer the milkman version. Going through all the figures separately forces you to repeat a lot (like the sprue attachments) and having more general remarks and then maybe a few individual remarks for some figures seems a more reader friendly approach to me. But that's just my 2 cents worth...

Cheers!

Thank you Stefan for your feedback. I will watch for feedback from others on this subject and remember it for future reviews. back to the subject in hand I really like this set even with the problem of the sprue connection points, and it is my belief that they could easily be used as a mix and match set as far as parts go.
