A completely unknown (at least to me) figure company which has chosen to concentrate (at least at the moment) on AFV crews.
This U.S. based company has, at least in my opinion, entered into a very sensible part of the market: the production and design of 1/35th scale AFV crews. Many companies are pushing into an already crowded market and unless their figures are exceptional, will fall by the wayside. Alpine have, at the moment a relatively small range of figures. Only 7 figures are currently available, HOWEVER, unlike the majority of other figure companies, each figure comes with a choice of heads which will increase the possibilities enormously.

The seven figures currently available are as follows:

35001- German Tanker with flare pistol

35002- Britsh/Commonwealth tanker with Beret or Helmet.

35003- Coldwar-era Soviet tanker with forage cap or crew helmet

35004-Early war Soviet Tank commander with cap or crew helmet.

35005- Early war Soviet Tanker with cap or crew helmet.

35006- D.A.K. Tank commander with choice of two cap types.

35007- Soviet Crew set. (2 figures) comprising 35004 and 35005.


The figures which are designed by Taesung Harmms, are certainly different. Another noteworthy point is the intention of Alpine to produce figures to true 1/35th scale. Something other manufacturers pay the merest lip-service to..... Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a price for these interesting figures. As to availability, the company website has a list of distributors, in Europe, the U.S.A. and in Asia. Worth searching out.

For more information and additional photos of the figures you can visit their site at www.alpineminiatures.com.
