1/72nd Scale Soft Plastic Figure Sets to Make

There are many 1/72nd scale soft plastic figure sets that I would love to buy, if some company would make them. I am certain that they would be popular enough to sell well.

To the best of my knowledge none of these sets are in the pipeline from any soft plastic figure company. I think these sets would be popular and would sell well. All of these sets come up over and over again in discussions of new figure sets. Since I don't do ancients, or Napoleonics there are no sets from those eras.

Hey Mike

This guy does 1/72nd Cavemen/women and creatures.

They look pretty good too.
