Nice, they could have more plastic positions.

More like 'On patrol' poses, a lot depends on how many parts & how hard they are to put together.

Those figures are better for Korea that WWII. They are wearing the M45 web gear which was rare in Europe during the war.

The jackets look to long for M41s as well and they are not M43 or HBT variants, what are they?.
I really don't know how manufactures can muck up research so much in this day and age.
They remind me of the mish mash Wargames Factory set.

You might want to let them know before they make the molds…

Is it my imagination or do these look a little larger of head + weapons than the US Army crews in their Jeep pack?
I replaced heads and guns on those guys. I think they were pretty well scaled to 1/56th but I learnt a lesson of 'be careful what you wish for'. The guns (and heads!) looked tiny compared to my infantry force which combines Warlord and BTD. So I replaced them on the Jeep crews…
