fellow is on the run, and perhaps wishing he'd buckled that helmet like Sarge
uniform is a combination of early and late war items, most notably the M1941 combat
jacket and the combat shoes with leather gaiters. The shoes alone will place him
in a late 1944 setting. The color of the jacket on the box art is a little more
on the green khaki range, as opposed to the tannish khaki. You could go either
way, the more greener color being a newer, less weathered jacket.
Chilstrom's sculpting is crisp and the pose has a great sense of movement. Add
a couple straps dangling from the helmet and you'll accentuate the feeling of
motion. There's some flash and seams to clean up, but nothing to complain about.
The body is cast as one piece, with separate arms and head, with the left hand
molded to the top of the helmet. Dry-fitting suggests that mating the left arm
to the torso and the hand on the helmet might take some careful positioning and
slower-curing super glue.
figure scales a bit under 6'. Like PT-005, his cartridge pouches are sculpted
quite small, while the other initial Platoon figures pouches are larger and similar
to those with Warriors or DML figures.
the extras are limited to a canteen, first aid pouch, a bayonet, and a PAL RH
36 fighting knife in a leather scabbard.
