Playhouse U.S. Army Special Forces (CJSOTF-A) Preview

Just when you thought 1/6 scale 12-inch military figures couldn't get any better, Playhouse comes in and shakes the house / industry with their newest offering: Playhouse 5th Anniversary Edition - U.S. Army Special Forces (CJSOTF-A) - that's Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force - Afghanistan. This latest figure being released by Playhouse will rock the house and bring it down; and set new benchmarks for the other companies to follow after. Don't believe me? Scroll down for the pictures (click on them for a larger and better view) and ENJOY :)

Apparently Woodland Camouflage is still in fashion up there in Afghanistan, in certain parts where woodland threads seem to blend in better with the terrain and environment. U.S. Army Special Forces is taking the lead and the Marines might soon follow suit.

Note the selector switch that is not in a fixed position but movable - this in 1/6 scale is crazy!

This Playhouse 1/6 scale MK18 with short barrel and Daniel Defense rail system with an AR platform is truly amazing. This Playhouse 1/6 scale U.S. Army Special Forces (CJSOTF-A) 12-inch figure looks EXCELLENT! Can't wait for this figure to be released :)

I am going heavy on ordering these. I think this is going to be the figure to beat this year. Playhouse typically only releases one a year, but they do their best to make sure it is one of the most accurate on the market. It will be interesting to see what Soldier Story counters with.

I am crazy about this stuff too. Love the detail they put into them. But, I am looking for a particular piece and maybe you can help me. I am an army vet and am trying to setup a figure wearing the same field gear I wore. I served from 85-97. The one piece I am not finding is the alice pack. Dragon put out a perfect copy but no one seems to have it. Do you know where I can find one?

Are these the ones? Did a search on e-bay - http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=Dragon+Models+ALICE+pack&_sacat=0&_from=R40
