I recently took a better look at all the KGB-Hobby equipment sets. The latest 005 figure even included a body and headsculpt. They seem to suffer from the same problem as DID and MCToys, not being able to produce quality plastic items. They neither look sharp nor having any great features, hence moving parts.
Nevertheless, I like the look of all of them and they offer unique parts, clothes and camo patterns. If I would collect military, I would just go for lots of them and replace the weapons by DAM’s counterparts.
The only item I aquired from them so far is the KGB-005 helmet and gas mask loose and displayed it on a mannequin. The gas mask looks all great, apart from the not so crisp execution of the plastic itself. I feel again like I am thrown back to my MCToys FSB 3.0 review. Same issues.
The first sets seem to go for quite little money. The latest 005 seemed to be a bit too expensive imo considering the poor rifle and pistol.
What do you think? Any experience to share? Down below ref pics of all the products.
