Unboxing Battlefront's USMC Buck Rogers Rocket Men

with Dan

This week, Dan has a look at the Marine Rocket Launcher Battery, manned by the USMC's Buck Rogers Men.

From the book, Gung-Ho!:
"The 1944 campaign to recapture Saipan and Tinian saw the introduction of the truck-mounted 4.5 inch Mk 7 mulitple rocket launcher. Due to the futuristic nature of the rocket trucks the crews were named "Buck Rogers' Men" by the Marine Riflemen. The weight of fire that could be dropped on concentrated Japanese troops or field positions out-weighed their inaccuracy."

Let's have a look at what's inside the box!


  1. Yep, they definitely are! Can't wait to see them all painted up!

  2. Awesome! I was afraid that with the Pacific, we would not see many interesting/new releases, but this is really great news. :-)

  3. Nice,reminds me of the LAnd MAtteress mounted on a truck bed.Nice...
