Well, I'm rather sad to report only 2 of my Bren machine gunners made it through, just like Alan's box. And like Alan previously mentioned, it appears the other 2 chaps were cut off from their sprues (with a rather noticeable and odd gap). Also, those two "cut" sprues appeared to be in a different orientation in the box compared to the 2 "uncut" sprues suggesting to me that whoever filled the box may have grabbed sprues from two different batches?
The mould was damaged beyond repairs right on the place where this specific figure was, hence we had to cut it out.
As a result, this set was issued with a very limited production run. We will try to go round this problem in some way but it may well be, that no subsequent re-releades will be made.
Please, be guided accordingly.
