One of the benefits of collecting 1/6 military figures is how current the 1:6 scale manufacturers try to be and how they always try to stay on top and updated on the latest developments in military technology, be it weapons, gear or even uniforms.
The BLACKHAWK!® HPFU (High Performance Fighting Uniform) is a revolutionary approach to the combat uniform featuring a lean, athletic cut with articulated knees and elbows for increased performance, mobility and reduced bulk. Constructed with no-melt, no-drip materials. The I.T.S. equipped HPFU Uniform has 8 life-saving tourniquets integrated into the arms and legs and meets U.S. Institute of Surgical Research Tourniquet Requirements (USAISR).

There has been quite a number of 1:6 headsculpts with likeness of English actor and martial artist Jason Statham (known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels"; "Revolver" and "Snatch". He also played lead roles in "The Transporter" film series, "Crank" and "Crank 2", "The Bank Job", "War" (opposite martial arts star Jet Li) and "Death Race") but this one really resembles Jason Statham very closely IMHO
The Navy Seal Mk14 Mod1 Rifleman outfit and gear also looks pretty amazing, and Toys City hasn't disappointed with the quality of its 1:6 scale products thus far
The 1:6 scale M14 EBR with Magpul CTR stock
Seeing pictures of the real thing really gives one an idea of how close this rifle resembles the 1:1 version.
The United States Navy Mark 14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle (EBR) is an American selective fire military rifle chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge. It is a variant of the M14 battle rifle and was originally built for use with units of the United States Naval Special Warfare Command, such as the United States Navy SEALs. [source: wiki]
The EBRs are made with the intention of carrying out both designated marksman and CQB roles in combat. The creation of the Mark 14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle(EBR) began in 2000 after a request by United States Navy SEALs for the creation of a more compact M14 battle rifle.
