Another 1/6 scale US Navy SEAL figure is going to be released! This time it is from Crazy Dummy; seems like everybody's jumping on the SEAL bandwagon (It's the "sell a SEAL to get rich quick" scheme haha)
The United States Navy Sea, Air and Land (SEAL) Teams, commonly known as Navy SEALs, are the U.S. Navy's principal special operations force and is a part of the Naval Special Warfare Command (NSWC) as well as the maritime component of the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). Their name derives from environments where they operate: sea, air and land. Navy SEALs are trained and have been deployed in a wide variety of missions, including direct action and special reconnaissance operations, unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, hostage rescue, counter-terrorism, and other missions. Without exception, all SEALs are male members of either the Navy or the Coast Guard. [ source: wiki ]
SEAL Teams are organized into two groups: Naval Special Warfare Group One (West Coast), and Naval Special Warfare Group Two (East Coast), which come under the command of Naval Special Warfare Command, stationed at NAB Coronado, California. As of 2006, there are eight confirmed Navy SEAL Teams. The original SEAL Teams in the Vietnam War were separated between West Coast (Team ONE) and East Coast (Team TWO) SEALs. The current SEAL Team deployments include Teams 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 10. There's also United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group - Seal Team 6 was dissolved in 1987. The operators of SEAL Team Six established the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group, also known as DEVGRU. Last but not least. there is the SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team (SDVT)

The interesting thing is that there are a greater number of MARSOC (United States Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command), Army SF (Special Forces), Ranger Regiment etc than there are US Navy SEALs and yet 1:6 manufacturers seem to prefer producing and releasing more SEALs than any other special operations force. The most recent Soldier Story SEAL is from the SDVT and the Playhouse SEAL is from Team 10. There was also the Toys City Navy Seal Mk14 Mod1 Rifleman. I think if I put all my 1:6 scale 12-inch USN SEALs together, I might be able to have an operator from each team and more LOL
I liked what one of the guys in the forum (an actual operator) said, "this figure is WAY overloaded for doing anything besides falling out of a vehicle, through a door and crushing the enemy (literally). The three cans of 5.56 SAW ammo is the equivalent of a dude carrying 21 magazines of ammo. I like overloaded figs because you have plenty to use on other figures so my comment was just the bothersome "reality" quotient." These guys all come to us with the entire kitchen sink and so much bells and whistles that a real person would have problem just standing up under all that load, let alone operate in an efficient manner. BUT we just love having it this way - looks much more IMPRESSIVE, like using a sledge hammer to kill an ant.
Just scroll down and enjoy the pictures. These always serve as references for when the figure arrives. All of them do not come with instructions and new collectors always wonder how to put everything on, more so if you have never been to the military or dressed as one.
LOTS of gear on this one for sure! He's really loaded to bear.
As for the 1/6 headsculpt? Guess who - none other than famous footballer David Beckham, who is married to former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. The couple have three sons and currently reside in Beverly Hills, California. He is now playing football (or is it called "soccer" in the USA) for the Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy. Try running around the field with all that gear, mate!
