99000 Series - WWII figures and AFVs

1/72 scale


Dated: May 4, 2010.

Any collector knows what the worst part of toy soldier collecting is, the wait! It's often a wait of months and even years before new sets show up. Designing and producing each set takes a long time. Every set of new toy soldiers (from any company) you've bought have probably been a year in the making.

It cannot be determined for certain when a set will be released due to vagaries in the mold making process, but to make the wait as painless as possible we have created this page which shows the production status of the sets in the form of little graphs, so you'll how close to production the next set is. The graphs show the stages of production rather than time. The right side illustrates the progressive stages of production which you can follow, from sketches to master figures to test shots to painted figures to box art. Once the figures are in production the graphs will be taken off.

Various stages:
01) Research of uniforms and design of set.
02) Sketches are drawn.
03) Sculpting starts.
04) Sculpting ends.
05) Pattern making starts and ends.
06) Mold making starts.
07) Mold making continues.
08) Mold making continues.
09) Fitting of mold.
10) Testing of mold.
11) Production begins!

Plastic figures and easy to assemble hard plastic armored fighting vehicles. The AFVs only have a few pieces each, they are perfect for:
1) younger modelers or beginners, a great way to start them off on kits, not toys because they are accurately molded and true 1/72 scale.
2) wargamers who want to build up an army quickly.
3) modelers who want to use parts for kit bashing.
