Ahh a slavic set with a woman yet! It rhymes And an accordion too!

Good review always a bonus to have a female character thrown in.

I love the box art.

A must buy.

Cheers, Michael

I just got this set a couple of days ago and the figures are really nice. I keep thinking what great figure sets we would have if Dragon adds this kind of imagination to their figure sets. Oh well, can't have everything.

Unfortunately, I stopped buying Dragon figures as of late. In spite of their somewhat lesser quality, now I only wait for figure releases from Miniart, ICM, and Masterbox because of their originality.

WOW, an accordian in plastic!!! Has to be a first! Kudos to ICM (and other smaller companies) for putting out really unique and interesting subjects! I wonder how many people will buy the set just for the figure on the chair and the accordian? VERY NICE!
