Toys City is churning out some pretty nice stuff and although this is their 2010 X'mas Special, it won't be available until next year!



With all that gear, how do these guys even get anything done? Well, like what the "Rogue Warrior" Richard "Dick" Marcinko AKA "Demo Dick", "Shark Man of the Delta" said in his books, "Half the FUN is getting there!"


And why is a SEAL so far out of the water? When the Navy saw the need for a full-time dedicated Counter-Terrorist Team, Marcinko was tasked with its design and development.


Marcinko was the first commanding officer of this new unit which he named SEAL Team Six (at the time, the US Navy had only two SEAL teams. Marcinko purportedly named the unit Team Six in order to confuse other nations into believing that the United States had three other SEAL teams that they were unaware of). The men in the unit were handpicked by Marcinko himself from across the US Navy's Special Operations community. SEAL Team Six would be known as the US Navy's premier counter-terrorist unit; being compared to the US Army's Delta Force. Marcinko held the command of SEAL Team Six for three years from 1980-1983 instead of what was typically a two-year command in the Navy at the time. [source: wiki]


According to "Demo Dick", all the water a SEAL needs is in his water canteen :)


Marcinko also defined SEAL as "a hop-and-popping shoot-and-looter hairy-assed Frogman who gives a shit. It stands for Sleep, Eat And Live it up! It actually stands for SEa-Air-Land Navy SpecWarrior


Why this interest in Marcinko? Well, some say the Toys City 1/6 scale SEAL Team 5 Mountain Ops headsculpt looks like the man himself. Also a bearded Eric Bana? The HS also reminded me of Brían F. O'Byrne as Aaron Stark from FlashForward. In the TV series, Aaron Stark goes off to Afghanistan to find his daughter, Tracy.


By the way, the 1:1 scale orange is not included LOL

Darn.

I *was* hoping that the figure came with the tangerine / small orange as depicted in the last image, as I've learned that the U.S. Department of Defense has been secretly funding a black ops program to explore the lethality of citrus fruits in hostile environments.

Additionally, the implementation of citrus juice and its pulp as a superior substitute for the time worn and archaic C-4 and Semtex explosive material has been shown to be most promising.

A side benefit to the testing:

Amazingly, military personnel have reported ZERO cases of the disease known as "scurvy" and have commented on how well the detonated citrus fruits / juice compliment their breakfast regimen.

Additionally, U.S. D.o.D. officials have expressed a strong interest in the potential use of vegetables / dried legumes / bok choy / and most interestingly, "tofu" as a potential source of anti-ballistic material in which to enhance Kevlar body armour and trauma plates for front line combatants.

Pardon my cheekiness.

Please keep up the FANTASTIC work on your site. It really is a treat for the eyes.


Best wishes,

Hey there @lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore ...

Glad you enjoyed the *secret* info on the DoD's investigation into the use of citrus fruits in combat theaters.

I'm very curious about the tofu ballistic plating. Wow! Tofu can be used for just about anything. Sort of like the culinary world's "duct-tape".

:D

I shall swing back by to check out all of your wonderful photo uploads and the related info on these highly detailed figurines. Very cool indeed.

Best wishes to you and your endeavours in the year 2011.

Take care,
