Incoming: ZCWO 1/6 Tiger Woods as LAPD Police Officer 12-inch Figure

ZCWO will be releasing a 1/6 scale LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) Police Officer 12-inch Collectible Action Figure called "Tiger" and we all know that there's only one person in the world famous enough with that name: Tiger Woods! Tiger Woods as a 12-inch cop? More of a cop-out after the 2009 fiasco ;p He hasn't been the same ever since and remains winless on the PGA Tour since September 2009. Anyway, back to the topic at hand. The Los Angeles Police Department has a long history dating all the way back to 1853 when it was first founded, according to wikipedia.

Some people have commented that the uniform and accessories look dated (as in 1990s) but the truth is: LAPD uniforms and gear haven't changed much in the last 20 to 30 years and LAPD officers tend to wear short sleeves and no tie, but it isn't uncommon to see them wear ties and long sleeves as well. They usually don't wear hats except at ceremonies. With the higher security threats after 9/11, LAPD patrolman have taken to wearing soft body armor which they wear under their shirts for added protection.

Does this ZCWO Los Angeles Police "Tiger" 1/6 scale Collectible Action Figure look anything like Tiger Woods the golfer? You decide.

Looks like he traded in his golf clubs for firearms instead. Can't seem to see very well too so he needs glasses LOLZ

LAPD officers are authorized to carry Smith and Wesson, GLOCK, and Beretta semi auto pistols, in 9mm, .40 caliber and .45 caliber as duty weapons. They may additionally carry compact versions of the above brands for back up weapons or as off duty weapons. Some officers may still carry the compact S&W snub nose revolver in .38 caliber as a back up or off duty weapon.

The Police Officer's duty belt must carry an average of 8 to 10 and sometimes up to 15 pounds of equipment, ranging from flashlights, keys and handcuffs to OC spray, batons and duty weapons. It looks like "Tiger" is left-handed because he has a left-hand holster instead of the usual right-hand version.

Police baton, handcuffs, flashlight, radio and double-magazine pouch for his spare pistol magazines. One should always carry extra ammunition
