Playhouse D-Boy (Operation Spy, Somalia 1993) Preview

"Black Hawk Down" is a 2001 American war film co-produced and directed by Ridley Scott and based on the book of the same title by Mark Bowden that depicts the Battle of Mogadishu (a battle that was part of Operation Gothic Serpent and was fought from October 3 to 4, 1993, in Mogadishu, Somalia). The raid was integral to the United States' effort to capture Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. Eric Bana portrayed Sergeant First Class Norm "Hoot" Gibson, Delta Force operator (based on Norm "Hoot" Hooten and John "Mace" Macejunas). [ source: wiki ]

New from Playhouse, the D-Boy Set includes: PHOTO JOURNALIST'S VEST (KHAKI), PLAID PANTS (GREEN & BLUE), AIDID ONESIE T-SHIRT (GRAY), T-SHIRT (GRAY), UNDERPANTS (WHITE), LEATHER BELT (BROWN) and BH 445 CAMERA BAG (KHAKI) - Billingham?

With Head sculpt of Eric Bana as “HOOT”, S.1 BODY W/ NEW* MUSCULAR ARMS, O - JULIET SUNGLASSES (TI) With RETAINER, LEATHER LACE-UP PREMIUM BOOTS (IMPROVED) - Timberlands? MILITARY G.I. WATCH (SILVER), Leica M6 CAMERA, M9 PISTOL and FICTION novel












Check out the accessories, including the FICTION novel titled "Battle of Mogadishu". Did "Hoot" know something the rest of us didn't? A case of traveling back from the future to the past which was his present?

Interestingly, in the scene where the Black Hawks are one minute away from reaching Bakara market, a Ranger can be seen holding 'The Client', a novel by John Grisham which was published in 1994, while the film is set in 1993. [ source: wiki ]

Check out the ultra cool Billingham BH 445 camera bag

1/6 scale Leica M6 CAMERA

"Wanted: Somali Savage" AIDID ONESIE T-SHIRT (GRAY) - LOL

Timberlands LEATHER LACE-UP PREMIUM BOOTS

What's missing? The bike, of course! A Car-15 with Surefire Tactical Light would've been nice too
