As with most Soldier Story releases, I wonder if/when this will show up. Saw “expected 2022” on one site.
Another figure to accompany this one? Carrying the RPG perhaps.

I figure the conflict(s) still generate ill-feelings, but wonder if there will be Vietnamese combatant figures done for the conflict. Those could be suitable for a number of other conflicts, even late Vietnam/US .

Will be available this November … :relaxed:

Finally, a good substitute for the H&G Type 81-1 rifle.

Going to want that head sculpt and rifle for sure.

If anyone is keen on the head sculpt, it’s Wang Baoqiang, known mostly for his goofy comedic roles but is actually trained in shaolin martial arts.

So same as SS099?

Not sure. Bad sculpt? Different from usual haircut? Or different guy altogether - don’t watch a lot of Chinese movies just some of the major action ones so don’t know many actors from China.

For SS099 it looks like Ge You (with hair and younger) … Ge You (avec cheveux et plus jeune)

Certainly not my subject or field of interest, but it does look quite nice. Money saver for me, though…

Soldier Story has announced Chinese soldier figures for the Korean War, Sino-Vietnamese War, and Sino-Indian Conflict. It’s ironic that a wide field of historical subjects seem possible, but for the collapse of logistic systems and pandemic-related business disturbances.
When my now-adult children were young, they met any such proclamations of woes with the response of “Wooshah wooshah Waaaaaaa…”. These days they are a bit more sympathetic and stoic.

Type 81 rifle… looks very good
