Lucifer, Sniper Assassin by BBi

BBi released some nice figures and their "Elite Force: Terminate" line was interesting. The description for Lucifer - "Also known to some as “El Lupe” (the wolf) for the unrelenting way he stalks his prey. Rumors have it that he trained in the military as a sniper, and that it was there that he honed his deadly skills. Others say it is simply his “gift”. Whatever the truth, he holds loyalty for none but himself and sells his skill to the highest bidder. His weapons of choice, the 22 caliber Ruger Mk-3 pistol and the AR-7 Sniper Rifle, which he uses with merciless accuracy." Accessories included Polo Shirt, Trousers, Waist coat with belt & pistol pouch, Trench coat, Boots, Sunglasses, Knife with sheath, Pistol with two magazines, Flashbang grenades, Flame grenades, Sniper Rifle case, Sniper Rifle with Butt plate cover.

First thing when I saw this figure was to bash a Leon. It was only later that I realised Lucifer was supposed to be Robert DeNiro.

So here's Lucifer before he became an assassin sniper, honing his skills as a sniper with the military and putting said practice into use during the Falklands War.





The SAS could pick weapons of their choice instead of using the standard British weapons which they felt did poorly in battles. They favoured the M16/M203 for its dual capability.

Hi,
I'm Stephan from Sri Lanka. Someone I met had bought a BBi Elite Force 1;18 Hughes 500D (Heli) from Singapore. This was in 2004 so I had lost the store name & other essential details. Could you please tell me the name & address of the shop you purchased these from? Considering that they are the dealers for Blubox International. Drop me a line if you are not busy- stephanobs@gmail.com
Thanks alot!!!
