Alert Line compared to Dragon

Greetings,

Great uniform sets that are coming out of Alert Line, but is the quality that much better then Dragon's offerings that its worth the extra cost?

You can still find boxed German figures from Dragon for less. I am thinking whether to purchase some of the Alert Sets or settle for the later offering from Dragon.



Thanks

In some respects the Alert Line sets are improved over Dragon. I think of them as a cross of Dragon offerings with DID quality. The sewing and tailoring on the uniforms are better than Dragon. However, the late edition Dragon offerings are very good and cheaper and come with a figure, so I'd get those as a priority then get the Alert Line stuff to fill the gaps.

They are quality pieces. I have bought some sets and sone loose, and so far very happy with the pieces I got. I prefer old dml nydes, so their sets without bodies or with a HS are very welcomed.

The clothing is much better then DML's however if you are buying a set of their Panzer uniforms be advised that the headset is not as strong as DML's. Two of my last three earpieces broke off trying to put on a figures head.
