I do as well and I think this is an understable decision and another good idea for the future. Let them come!

It all depend on the price for the mass market. Like always.

I think that Linear-A is on the right path with her four figure sets. :yeah:
Attractive price (I talk about Zvezda as comparison of small figure sets) good quality, and the amount of figures you need as small Dio builder and on top different pose!

Let me be a bit crazy. (Is where any difference to as usual, Wiking ?)
A four figure tree can be used to Comic (Y-Comic ?), in Cornflake boxes, As give away like the Bugatti (Jet petrol station) in my Race car Dio`s. As a gift for figure model shows and so on ...

At PSR there was a similar idea (Almark). But too early.
It look like that each idea need his time.

If a manufacturer is going to produce a four-figure set, and it is THIS good, I will pay.

There's no wastage either. I've got boxes of Celts lying around because I've tried to get a variety of Celts in my army, and so there's a sprue with like 6 duplicates of the same poses, which only leaves green-stuff conversion or years of neglect. I'd much rather pay slightly more at price-per-mini than to have duplicates sitting around anyway.

They look good, although I can do without the "holding a spear directly over the head" pose.

Hello Santi,

I think this will be so. I know they have a lot of problems with the transport due to Covid-19. But since the frontiers are open again, the new sets will come soon. I hope so as well. :yeah:

Let's hope with faith, Jan. :yeah:

On 8 July, PSR announced that Hät ACW new sets had begun to be listed by some European dealers. Almost a month and a half later, it seems that they haven't yet arrived. :(

As we say in Spain: "Hope is the last thing that is lost". Let us be positive and hope that all these promising sets arrive as soon as possible. ;-)

Best regards.

Santi.
