Esci Nato Troops?

Posted by GWR on 08 Mar 2018, 22:56

I am attempting to get the Esci Nato Troops, specifically the British,the Germans minus the gasmask guy, and the Frenchman with the Mat49. Does anyone know where to find these? I have seen these go for far more than I am willing to pay for twelve figures.

Italeri will re-release this and other Esci sets this year.

The only problem is how long before the sets are released?

In this case, the real question seems to be how urgently you actually need them. ;-)
Some online shops already quote the announced "Colonial" Brits & Sepoys (set #6187, formerly Esci #232) and others in their respective future lists.

While this doesn‘t mean that the actual release is compulsorily imminent, it still tells us that the announced figures are very likely to hit the shelves in the not too distant future. :-)

I'm impatiently waiting for these sets to be released as well. I'm not going to miss out on these like last time so I'm saving my pocket money up. :-D

Last time they were released, like in the 80s? I think they will be released again some time around 2048 if you miss them again this time. :mrgreen: :-) :P :mrgreen:
