Barrett Scale: 28½M?.
Mixes best with: The start of a range of "new" figures made to match most of the other ranges available. The seperate heads mean that there is even more variety.
Long Review: These figures are part of the new trend at WWP, being distinctly larger than their "old" range, matching the "new" range in general size and build. This is a really good move, especially considering how tiny the old figures were by comparison. What sets this new range apart, though, is the fact that the heads are seperate. The bodies conform to the industry average in terms of the sculpting and general style. The heads, on the other hand, are really good. Each face has a distinct character and, since they can even be swapped among ranges, some pretty unusual nationalities can now be modelled.
Commentary: Considering the little misunderstanding in the WWP ranks regarding the size of all new figures, I think that these show that the "industry standard" faction seems to have won. A good move on WWP's part, as it means that they are not alienating themselves from a large proportion of buyers who may have been put of adding to their collections as WWP is too small.
Historical Accuracy: Four Average.
Pose Quality: Five Good
Sculpting: Four Good.
Casting: Four Average.
Sources: Samples sent by WWP.
Sculptors: All figures sculpted by Andy Cooper, all vehicles made by Andy Rawlings.
