This is, with
the exception of a new head, the same body on a litter that is featured
in "WWII USMC Stretcher Team." It's too bad that Warriors
did not offer a new sculpting that would complement the latter set,
since it will not be very realistic to include both the same figures
in one diorama.
There are some
minor differences between the two casualties. In the stretcher team
set, the figure's head and left foot are separate items, but in
this set the body is all one piece. The new bandaged head is similar
to the old. Because it is molded to the body and litter, it doesn't
have the definition under the neck and head that the previous arrangement
had. It appears the mold is getting old, too, as there were some
significant blobs of resin near the feet and the head. Otherwise,
the casting is good Warriors quality.
over the stretcher team kit is that there are now locating holes
for the included handholds that need to be attached. Again missing
from the previous kit, however, are the metal footrests that hold
the litter up off the ground.
On its own,
this is a decent offering, but it could be argued that it could
have more value if it was an original piece.
