I really like this one as it gives a lot of possibilities for Iraq/Afghanistan dioramas.

Great review Marcin, thanks! Hope we'll see more ToRo reviews here soon, they have some really nice modern Polish figures.

Very nice review of a very useful product. I just need to know where to get one (or two) now. It's even painted correctly, with the top and bottom of the shalwar qameez being the same color. A certain figure painter likes to mix and match the colors, but in Afghanistan, the shalwar qameez is treated like we treat a matched suit in the west. We rarely if ever mix and match.
By the way, that's not a pakol, but it still looks good, and you're right - excellent beard detail.

Sorry for reviving the old thread, but I'm wondering if this kit can be used for Iraq as well? Any peculiarities in the outfit that sets the figure in Afghanistan only?

Cheers,
Mario
