Built Review

Let's get the cons about the kit out of the way because there is only one. It might not even be the fault of Warrior/VLS. My set did come with a couple of bubbles or maybe short shots. The gunner had a nice little bubble on top of his helmet but was easily filled with some putty. One of the canteens was missing its cap due to a bubble also. On the assistant gunner, his left hand was missing his thumb due to another bubble. Like I said, it could have just been my set with these bubbles, so no biggy.

the gunner
Bill once again got this one down. Like the others, the gunner is wearing the USMC standard MARPAT uniform and IBA with assorted pouches attached. Remember, the figure can easily be made into an Army soldier by removing the sleeve pockets. The hands are molded on the AT4 separately from the arms. Head, arms, protective mask, and butt pack are separate from the main torso. I had no problem with fit or clean up, just the problem with the bubbles as I mentioned above.

the assistant gunner
As with the gunner, this figure comes with the head, arms, protective mask, and butt pack cluster molded separate from the main torso. Besides the problem I mentioned above, I didnít see or have any problems with fit or clean up. As with his counter part, this one wears the MARPAT uniform and IBA. The only addition is the MOLLE vest.

Besides my set having air bubbles, hoping it was just my set, this is another great addition to the ever growing OIF/OEF line of figures. If you're a fan of this line of figures from Warriors and havenít bought any yet, I highly recommend you do.

Well guys, this is my final installment to the Warriors USMC Operation Iraqi Freedom sets. Nate (PorkChop) wanted to play too, so he will be reviewing the final set (WA35588 USMC Radio Team OIF/OEF).
