You got to hand it to them, they certainly fill up some gaps in the 1/6 world. First the horses, now kid's bodies. Let's hope they bring out some of these bodies loose.

(Funny compositions this pic, I can't imagine the kids standing there making faces and fooling around with the Evil Midget coming to inspect them :p )

The Hitler figure was creepy, but this is just even more so. It does fill the need for Kids basic bodies but I just get that ewww factor from this release.
The Hitler Youth did fight in Berlin towards the end of the War, but this just doesn't represent that to me.
It would make a good base for a Short Round and Newt though.
Here's a review of the basic figure:

Any idea what they plan to charge for the little twerp? John Connor and Shortie are both good ideas right off the bat. No doubt others will surface soon!

Yeah, for some reason I found this even creepier than Hitler. But it sure is different and thus tempting for me. I wonder if that's the same body they used for the hobbits? It's about the same size.

I have the same reaction; a creepy, yet compelling figure. Probably will end up passing... but it sure is a unique 1/6 entry!

Wow. I totally made this post (http://sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18769) before I saw this thread.

That's really really creepy.

Also, I bet they're recycling the body they used on their LOTR Frodo and Sam figures, though hopefully it's been refined.

Creepy but nicely done!! I don't collect military figures but that would def. be in my collection if I did!

I must admit to feeling the skin creep also. I think it is valid subject matter.

You'd have lost that bet ;) DiD have created a completely new body for him - not a cut down 1/6th like their Hobbits. The good folk at Monkey Depot have pictures...

... does such an investment suggest other kid figures somewhere down the line? I know several people who are keeping fingers crossed for a Napoleanic drummer boy.

anyone know who sells the Drastic Plastic Hitler? I was trying to put together a "major players" collection of WWII and can't seem to find him anywhere other than the U.K.

Thats a tough one... used to be eBay was your best bet, but now its against policy to sell these figures. I personally haven't seen one for sale in a long time.

A few people have managed to list and sell theirs w/o getting yanked. Do a search for Drastic Plastic, one just went up.

looks like someone snagged it. i could get it cheaper from the UK than they listed for the "Buy it now".

I preordered the little Hilter Jugend ****** only about a week ago and it looks like he's shipping already. Anyone else got him yet?

Just received the figure today. As usual the quality is outstanding! Dont like the subject, however, it is historical. The packageing is the same as SideShows' star wars boxes.
I also have both of the samuria figures.They are truely pieces of art. For what you get from DiD as fas as quality and price they are superior to SideShow .
I am still a faithfull fan of SideShow, however, I do wish they would make more historical/military figures.
