From the PASGT / MICH helmet with back flaps (proper name - Havelock, named after General Sir Henry Havelock, is a light covering for the head and neck, worn as a protection against sunstroke) to the French FAMAS rifle, Dusty seems pretty authentic. Always wonder why a true blue American soldier would be carrying a French-made weapon? He was born in Las Vegas, Nevada, grew up in the desert and became intimately familiar with it. He then worked as a refrigeration repairman while studying the ecology of the desert and finally went through basic training at Fort Bliss, Texas. Anybody got answers?
The Exclusive Dusty 12-inch Figure will include an AC58 Anti-Armor Rifle Grenade accessory.
