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.

Giretsu Kūteitai (“Heroic Paratroopers”) was an airlifted special forces unit of the Imperial Japanese Army formed from Army paratroopers as a last-ditch attempt to reduce and delay Allied bombing raids on the Japanese home islands. Formed in November 1944, Giretsu would wear special hand-made camouflage uniforms and carry special equipment. Operations were to be undertaken at night, beginning with airstrikes by bombers. After this, commando units would be inserted into the target airfield by crash landing their transports with no provision for extraction of the strike force, meaning that the Giretsu ground operations were effectively suicide attacks.

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