Re: Strelets - I know I'm jumping the gun here, but.....
Just wanted to put this on your radar. I like everything about this Japanese HW set, especially the radioman and general officer (they will join all my Japanese armies from Philippines 1941 to Okinawa).
There are 5 WWII US Marines sets out there, but:
Atlantic is worthless.
Airfix 1st version has good poses but really poor detail. They have a flamethrower and bazooka, but no mortar, heavy MG or BAR.
Airfix 2nd version has a bazooka and heavy MG, but no flame thrower, no BAR and not even an officer.
Revell has no bazooka or heavy MG, but they do have a BAR, officer and flamethrower.
Only the Waterloo 1815 has an oddly sculpted mortar, and it is the only one that has a radioman. These sets aren't always compatible in look and it would be nice to get them all in one set that matches each other like your IJA HW set.

As examples, I would love a set that included poses similar to:
