Description

These custom printed Collectible Minifigures are printed on genuine brand new LEGO parts using a high-quality UV printing method. They make the perfect gift or addition to a collection and are a great way to learn history through the building and creating scenes.

The French Foreign Legion fought in many theatres and so adopted the uniform appropriate to each theatre. In the desert, sand-colored shirts, light khaki tunics and shorts, and sandals were often worn to better cope with the conditions. The eponymous white kepi was also worn whenever possible, but during combat, it might be swapped for something more protective. Due to being stationed further away from France, equipment would be slower to be updated, so their uniform and equipment were also of closer similarity to that of the First World War. The Berthier rifle was used by the French Foreign Legion (we know it’s a Mosin-Nagant, but they look very similar!).

After French capitulation, many of the Foreign Legion joined with British forces in North Africa to continue fighting the Axis powers as part of the Free French Forces.

United Bricks has brought this iconic camo to life with 360° printing.

This set contains small parts and is not intended for children under 3 years.
