Nice packaging by Hot Toys, as always. First the slipcase with landscape orientation

The actual box cover featuring the thermal image of Dutch as seen by the Predator. Inner flap reads: Recruited by the CIA to rescue hostages held by guerilla fighters in a Central American country, Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer and his men encounter an enemy unimaginably more deadly than any on Earth - because the Predator is not of this Earth.

Tray containing 1/6 Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer collectible figure as well as his weapons and accessories
IMPORTANT NOTE: Instruction sheet (referred as "Manual") clearly indicating that this Hot Toys Muscular Body figure is not as articulated as the standard/normal type and one must be extremely cautious when posing said action figure. Meaning: if you break it, don't "cowpeh" lah! For non-Singlish speaking readers, "don't cowpeh lah" means "DON'T go crying to your father OR complain!" because Hot Toys will only say, "I told you so."
Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer's weapons of choice: M16A1 assault rifle mounted with M203 40mm Grenade Launcher (movable front sights for M203, movable dust cover on M16A1, one removable 30-round magazine, Colt M1911A1 .45 pistol with removable magazine (no sliding breech nor movable hammer) - in the movie, Dillon is briefly seen with an M1911A1 pistol whereas Billy, Dutch and Mac were seen with IMI Desert Eagle handguns holstered as their sidearms. Dutch keeps his in a hip holster while Billy and Mac use shoulder holsters. Dutch also has two M67 "Baseball" hand grenades and two mean looking knives - one long (combat knife) and the other longer (machete)!!

Arnold Schwarzenegger as Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer - amazing sculpt produced by Hot Toys
Another look at the Hot Toys muscular body
"If it bleeds, we can kill it."Interesting jacket design by Hot Toys - it is held together by a snap button and velcro fasteners. The zipper is for show as it cannot be fastened even though Hot Toys bothered to make the pull tab 1/6 scale. Wonder why they do that?
[After Dutch has nailed a guy to the wall with his knife]Mine's BIGGER than yours! Dutch with machete
Dutch: Stick around.
Dutch with his pistol. Pistol-wise, in terms of 1/6 scale, Soldier Story wins Hot Toys totally (To view the exceptional quality of Soldier Story's 1/6 scale M1911A1 pistol, check out my post here)! Total Recall should be made for Hot Toys' pistols. BTW, "Total Recall (1990)" was another sci-fi action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
There's no mistaking that the head sculpt of Hot Toys Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer is Arnold Schwarzenegger!
Dutch's combat knife kept in its sheath on his web belt. It also has a removable sharpening tool kept in the front of the sheath.
"I'll be back!" - a catch phrase made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger's title character from the 1984 science fiction thriller film "The Terminator." The phrase has become so associated with Schwarzenegger that celebrity impression comedians often recite it in a mock Austrian accent. In addition to being the Terminator's catch phrase, it's also Schwarzenegger's personal catch phrase, and he tries to include it in most of his films and public appearances.
A closer view of Dutch with his M16A1/M203, hip holster for his pistol and sheath for his machete, kept just next to his right calf.
Dutch wears jungle boots for operating in the jungle of Guatemala, before he and his merry men becoming the hunted instead of the hunter
Hot Toys MMS72 Collector's Edition Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer IMHO is another coup for Hot Toys - WELL DONE!!
