WW1 US Army "Doughboys" soldiers produced by Trico (Japan)

I recently received these nice composite WW1 US Army "Doughboys" soldiers produced by Japanese company Trico /Esabe in 30s. These company was based in Nagoya, Japan and produced composite toy soldiers, railroad figures, farm figures and civilian figures from 1933 to 1955. These doughboys figures are made in very unusual poses. I really like the doughboy kneeling machine gunner (operating the M1914 Hotchkiss gun ?), the doughboy decontamination wearing gas mask and the doughboy sitting on crate, with sword. It is interesting that Trico produced only US Army toy soldiers for export. I didn't find any Japanese Imperial Army soldiers produced by Trico.
