Great boots! But that mustache seems to be an alien being that has come down from outer space and attached itself to the Austrian artist, enslaved his mind and body, and twisted him into an evil dictator. Mystery solved! More seriously, I think the mustache (and possibly the upper lip) is simply too tall.

The only good thing I can say for that parasite is that his clothing designers could have worked for Michael Jackson..

Hugo Boss was the designer of many Nazi uniforms.

I have to question why we need another figure of Hitler?

Am I the only one who feels that this is not an innocent resurrection of an historical character who has never really been killed in any meaningful sense?

Hugo Boss -- that explains it. Why another figure? Probably because the other ones have sold out, and some people may still need one for their collection. Speaking of, I would like to think that people collect iterations of this particular historical figure for the same reason they might pick up an Emperor Palpatine (granted, he was fictional and not as evil, even if apparently senile) -- to have a top baddy to pit against the good guys. But I suppose everyone's motivations are their own.

Well, perhaps I am too cynical. Smile

Chillingly realistic for me. When you see Hitler in black and white, you can distance yourself, but, he becomes all too real in colour.

CHEERS!

I think people are reading too much into this. There are a TON of WWII enthusiasts in the 1/6 Hobby, who appreciate the ability to represent both sides of the conflict.

Exactly. The opposite view, while not unnatural to arrive at (and things like that do cross my mind often enough) has the dubious advantage of being a bit like a conspiracy theory on the verge of turning into a witch hunt. No, I am not saying that John or N would be going that far themselves. But once we start on that path, if we are going to lean towards censoring historical figures, and if we are to be objective and take everyone's views into consideration, we would not have any. For example, Stalin (who was much worse than even Hitler if you just pile up the bodies on the scales), Mao, Ramses, Qianlong, Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Churchill, Putin, and many others, not to mention any of the recent US presidents, themselves victims and perpetrators alike of increasing polarization and intolerance. All of these can be considered offensive to someone somewhere and somehow. And I don't want to see the forum degenerate into yet another venue for spouting out vicious bile like so much of the media (social and otherwise) out there in our time. Again, not saying you guys would carry it this far, but I am wary and weary of it here.

Come on fellas, let's judge this on the figure and not the subject. We all know that he'll always be a controversial one, but, this is 3R we're talking about and they will always get round to doing him again at some point.

That would be the best approach. Given the continued insistence on making more out of this and turning it into some sort of political statement, I am locking this topic at least for now.
