      to moondog (collecting)

      Hey Moondog 1/6th figure collecting has really become a popular hobby for many people who are interested in WWII. If you need any help in starting a new collection please don't feel afraid to ask. I've been doing it for seven years and have more than 30 figures.

        Oh man - scads of them --- well not so much for the last year or so --- but I got a 'decent' collection I think.

        I am sorta in the envisioning a photo album page -a virtual display shelf, if you will.

        Mainly I do WWII - mainly Dragon - although I got all of the Allied BBI D-Day figures originally released ..

        Got Stonewall & R E Lee from Sideshow -- as well as the 1915 German trooper and von Richthofen.

        I think my next fig might be that Otto Carius figure once it makes it Stateside.

            Otto Carius -- one of those CyberHobby Exclusives


            http://www.cyber-hobby.com/html/70320.htm

            Yeh the dagger is just drawn on there - Dragon seems to do that with their prototypes...

            Er oh - who -well I only know the basics -- he was a German Army tanker ace - on the same level as Michael Wittman...

            What I like about the figure is the Army dress uniform ... something new...

            Although since you made me look I found this new one they got posted too.

                Man I am horrible with the names on them.

                I had to look it up - that's the SS oficer with the peaked cap, the camo smock and pants - with an Mp-44 -- yeh I got it (the regular version - I think about a year ago - thinkinng I got it off of Ebay, but not positive (I also just figured out that I have no pics of that fig either )

                  I had a 1944 American Mountain Division soldier and a Vietnam Era Green Beret in tiger stripe fatigues. I named the GI "Bruce" and I named the Green Beret "Puddin'".

                  Bruce and Puddin' are a cute couple that live on a shelf in my basement. Last Month they went to Massachusetts and got Married and now they are trying to adopt the baby Jesus from our holiday nativity scene.

                    Look, I don't deny that the names slapped on there by Dragon are silly - I personally don't use them, because of that...

                    I also recall paying about 50.00 for a 101st Paratrooper - then deciding if people were paying 300.00+ for it - who was I to keep it out of circulation.

                    I also recall getting a freebie Wehrmacht splinter pattern camo parka - as well as a Oak Leaf pattern camo hat - which someone paid 75.00 and 38.00 for respectively -

                    So feel free to laugh it up.

                    It isn't like I can afford the real gear.

                        Yeah,I agree that Dragon's names for their figures tend to give them a "Barbie and Ken" feel. However,I suspect this is done to make figures of historical figures without paying royalties,etc.
                        I once saw a LSSAH Major named "Kurt" who was the spitting image of "Panzer" Mayer plus,There's also one of a modern female U.S. Army soldier who bears a striking resemblence to a former Iraqi POW.

                              I have yet to buy something from Dragon but the nexyt one I get probably will be. Most of mine are Hasbro. Not only are they affordable,but are durable enough that I can get down on the floor and play with my kids. The 21 Century ones are almost as good and the BBI ones I have,while cool looking,lose componants
                              easily.

                              I even have a shelffull of the "soldiers of the world" like that you used to find at K mart.
