The moment I laid eyes on this set, I'm thinking of Josh Duhamel who played US Army Captain William Lennox, part of the seven-man Joint Special Operations Command team who form part of earth's defence against the Decepticons in the movie "Transformers (2007)" - can't wait for the sequel.
So here he is - Josh Duhamel in all his multicam glory. The basic shirt and trousers.
"Oh Gosh, it's Josh!" Not that into him but Daisy is - as long as it keeps the wife happy and keeps me collecting ;p
The trousers have amazing detailing such as the zipper that goes all the way up the side of his legs like the slit on a cheongsam. BTW I ditched the lousy boots that came with this set. If you notice carefully, there's another zipper that goes from the front of his trousers where his crotch is to the back so that he can take a dump without taking off his pants - they think of everything.
His M9 pistol with tactical light attached. The front has a lense "thingy" which doesn't look right - very sci-fi but imagine once you drop the pistol, the lense is cracked!! Gloves are from Hot Toys - the pair that came with this set sucked!
His Crye Combat Chassis with 2 double M4 magazine pouches, one triple pistol magazine pouch, a radio pouch, two water bladder holders with straws and one utility pouch. His belt has a gas mask bag which has a ring of holders for his M203 40mm grenade rounds, a dump pouch, holster for his pistol, and two more pouches. Also comes with helmet with NVG mount (but no NVGs) and goggles (the strap snapped when I tried to put it on the helmet - bummer!). It also came with interesting pads that velcro into the inside of the chasis and belt. These are meant for vetilation and cushioning which when worn on the figure becomes hidden but a nice touch nonetheless.
Dressing up for duty. He also comes with a radio with throat mic and ear bud plus PTT (Push To Talk) Switch
The 5 LED light - first introduced by Hot Toys when they released their US Navy SEAL figures - very up-to-date
Now fully geared up with CBT's TynCorp PMC and looking like CPT Lennox ready to do battle with the Decepticons. That's what I enjoyed about the movie - the mixing of military might with robot power and not just robot on robot.
Also like in the movie - if you're going to pay good money to get stars on your set, ditch the helmets so that everybody can see who they are, even if it's not practical and real soldiers do wear their helmets because it protects them from head injuries and certain death!
He's armed with the standard M4 with ACOG sight, AN/PEQ laser pointer, surefire tactical light and M203 underbarrel attachment
Now bring on Megan Fox - hubba hubba!!
