Long time no visit, but since the Peace Company girl arrived today I thought I'd drop in.
According to the name tag, which I didn't apply, her name is Jenny.
She's another stern face, and the clothes and equipment are just as detailed and seemingly as historically accurate as the earlier figure. A little easier to assemble than the first one, but those fully functioning ALICE clips can be a devil to fasten.
It's still annoying that neither of them had complete shirts. I made the first more decent with a Dragon T-shirt. The new one has a flak vest with a functioning zip, so there's only a little bit of bare midriff on show.
The bandolier pockets contain six 40 mm grenades for her M79 launcher. They even included two triple 'egg cartons' to hold them, like these real 1:1 versions:
However, the bandolier flaps don't close very well when using the holders, so I left them out.
They included the various patches on a sheet, but I didn't use any of them. In the same bag was the tiny three dimensional plastic CND badge that I put on her vest. It's pre-glued so all you have to do it peel the back off.
As with the Play Company she comes with two water bottles with holders and a medical pouch. The pouch by her left arm is a double magazine holder for the M1911A1 pistol, but it's empty. The magazine doesn't appear to be removable from the pistol, but the slide functions revealing a round inside.
The quality of the parts and their authenticity to the intended era is at odds with the revealing semi-shirts, not to mention that these are women equipped for combat in that conflict. In my mind they're one of two things:
1) Colonial Marine types at war with Xenomorphs along with the rest of my combat girls
2) US Army Nurse Corps in Vietnam who've armed themselves in a last ditch attempt to prevent capture
