This US 82nd Airborne Pathfinder by Dragon is supposed to have been in Normandy before D-Day 6 June 1944 since he has to mark out the drop zone for his buddies who would come later. For some strange reason, Dragon had this thing for Nicholas Cage. Not content with his sculpt as SGT Joe Enders, they put out this figure with a different head sculpt that also resembled Nicholas Cage.
They should have done something about the Parachute First Aid Packet because it was just a lump of molded plastic and it looked like "Shite" (pardon my British). I'm gonna have to fix that one of these days. If you can look beyond the shitty Parachute First Aid Kit by Dragon, you can see the resemblance of the head sculpt to Nicholas Cage.
However, once you remove the helmet, he looks like someone else altogether, someone more handsome than Cage could ever be

His gear. Since he has to be self-sufficient until his buddies arrive, he certainly packed a lot of stuff with him, especially extra ammo
