Soldier Story 1/6 scale CIA SAD version 1 & 2

Can't resist not putting both released versions of Soldier Story CIA SAD (Central Intelligence Agency's Special Activities Division) side-by-side :) So here they are, the latest released Soldier Story 1/6 scale 12-inch CIA SAD Night Ops Ver 2.0 operator / military figure (reviewed HERE) and the earlier CIA Special Activities Divison (SAD) Night Ops Oded Fehr operative (reviewed HERE). The nice thing about these two releases is that they are both completely differently attired and equipped and yet look just as good individually or as a team.

Check out the pictures posted (remember to click on them to get a bigger and better enlarged view :>) Hope you all like them


While the first Soldier Story CIA SAD operator was armed with one main weapon (the M4 Carbine with Rifle Sling, Flashlight, Supressor, S&B Scope with Larue mount and power grip, opening dust cover which could reveal the bolt carrier group pulled back by the working charging/cocking handle) and one sidearm (P226 RAIL Pistol with Supressor), version 2.0 comes with two weapons (1/6 scale Heckler & Koch (H&K) G36C Assault rifle with folding stock, removable magazine, Integrated RIS with RIS Forward Grip, silencer, EOTech Sights, tactical light attached on a bungee sling AND Remington Model M870 pump-action shotgun with tactical light and sling) and two M9 pistols with eight extra magazines, one in his drop-down holster and one in the front mounted holster of his Tactical Tailor Tac-Vest 1E.

I chose to pose the Soldier Story CIA SAD Night Ops version 2.0 with the Remington Model M870 pump-action shotgun here since I haven't done so in the previous posts






As I opted to leave out the eight yellow cyalume light sticks or glow sticks when kitting out the version 2 operator, the only colors on this double team of black operators are the red and blue shotgun shells on CIA SAD operator number 2. Still not clear on why there are different color shotgun shells. Birdshot vs Buckshot? and then there are slugs too? Live and learn, I guess :)

Hehe awesome,I made mine wield the shotgun as well:P

Version 2 really strikes me as the badass macho-type person with his smug expression, he also seem to be slightly taller than my other 1:6 models :D

you built yours really well, keep rocking man :D

Hey, Great review with some awesome pictures. I really enjoyed this a lot. I just wanted to expand your knowledge a little about the shotgun shells. Usually soldiers who carry a shotgun carry two types of ammunition. One for breaching (green shells) and one for aint-personell (red shells). I don't know why they have blue shells here with the figure but thats what they are used for. Its usually Red and Green, not blue. No one is perfect though, but I know this for a fact being an Infantry soldier in the Army. Well I love your review and keep up the great collecting and the keep the reviews coming!! Thank you for your time!

A BIG thank you Rodriguez for that most valuable input on shotgun shells and their usage with regard to the army :) I've been wondering and googling but couldn't find a most satisfactory answer and what a better way to obtain such accurate info than from the man who is in the know. THANKS man for taking the time to write & for those encouraging words. CHEERS

Hi Luna, you can send me pictures at cowpehcowbu@gmail.com Always happy to see other collector's pictures. If the computer says there is malware, maybe there is :( maybe you hv to try other sites. These CIA SAD figures are VERY HOT & in HIGH DEMAND, they were already SOLD OUT in my country long ago and only those who pre-ordered got their figures. All the BEST to your growing collection and glad to see my reviews have helped you in your buying decisions CHEERS "Master Jedi" :)

I know this is old BUT...the blue shotgun shells are supposed to replicate(if they based anything on facts within the CIA at least when I was with them) Nobelsport LE 12ga ammo, they are #4 buckshot rounds, pretty devastating and was my choice for ammo. Can be used for breaching or anti-personnel. Perfect all around ammo so you don't have to swap shells while forward. Regular army uses red and green shells as the previous poster stated. Just shows that whoever designed that figure had a little insider knowledge.
