442nd Walking Infantryman Figure

Item # 115279.

Founded in 1893 in the UK by William Britain, W. Britain has been one of the foremost producers of collectible military figures in the world. It started as a family business in the 19th century then grew to include a massive plastic farm toy series. Now it has landed in the US and is continuing its series honoring historical figures in the military by launching a series of figures representing the lauded 442nd Regimental Combat Team. We are pleased to include the first figure of the series in this year’s catalog. This hand-painted metal figure is 1/30 scale, 2.5”H, and is wearing components of the M1943 Combat uniform.  

NOTE: You will notice that the patch of the 442 is not on our figure. While W. Britain was researching this heroic unit, they examined numerous photos of the men in the field and noticed that none of the 442 GIs had any identifying patches on the M43 jackets. Out of respect for their deeds and valor, and for historical accuracy, W. Britain has chosen to portray them as they fought, without their iconic unit insignia.
