Re: Strelets Set 186 French Foreign Legion Early XX C.

My thanks to everyone for the feedback about this, and especially to Ironsides for that fascinating look at that process. I really am sympathetic with Strelets need to maximize their profit margin by using an economical process. Unfortunately, I had just started purchasing their RIF War series, and their other Arab and Legion sets, and the above mentioned set is already impossible to locate in the states. I am starting to believe that you have to be ready to buy each and every new set as it comes out of the gate. I still think that, given the artists that they have to hire to produce the more recent figures, one would think that they would want to continue to be able to sell these sets on more than just a limited run. The other interesting possibility I have heard mentioned in this forum is 3D production. Perhaps that would make their original casts go further?
