MasterBox have developed a reputation of creating figure sets that tell a story in a box, they also ‘go with a theme’ the best example of this are the north African themed sets, 3 in total, with a set dedicated to British and German infantry and the third set depicting some intense hand to hand fighting - and following on from this, MasterBox released a set of Iraqi insurgents (depicting insurgents during the American/British invasion to remove Saddam Hussain) and now we have ‘US checkpoint in Iraq’
