Preview VTS VM-007 1/6th Scale Dark Soldier 12-inch Figure aka Karl Urban as John Grimm

Doom is a 2005 science fiction horror film, loosely based on the Doom series of video games created by id Software. It was directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak. A team of eight Marines - (Sarge, Reaper, Duke, Destroyer, The Kid, Portman, Goat and Mac) known as the RRTS Hellfighters (Rapid Response Tactical Squad) from Earth are sent via a teleportation device called "the Ark" to Mars where they must eliminate a threat which has attacked and killed residents of the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC) Olduvai Research Facility.

Karl Urban starred as Staff Sergeant John "Reaper" Grimm: Grimm is the son of UAC scientists who were killed in an accident during the early excavation of a Martian dig site. He abandoned his scientific heritage and joined the military to forget about this personal disaster. He is the twin brother (younger by two minutes) of Dr. Samantha Grimm.


VTS VM-007 1/6th scale Dark Soldier 12-inch Figure aka Karl Urban as Staff Sergeant John "Reaper" Grimm will come with 1/6th scale real-like head sculpt, 12-inch figure body with long-sleeved T-shirt (black), combat suit, tactical vest, universal pouch (small), magazine pouch, universal pouch (large), ammo pouch, tactical belt, elbow pads (one pair), knee pads (one pair), half-finger tactical gloves (one pair), walkie-talkie radio, combat knife with scabbard, drop-leg holster, pistol, sci-fi assault rifle, rifle sling, radio communications headset, combat boots (one pair)










The rifle as seen in DOOM and on this figure are modified Heckler & Koch G36s, basically just a H&K G36 with futuristic looking upgrades / attachments. It might look similar to the guns seen in the ALIENS film but the Pulse Rifles from Aliens were modified Thompson's with a bit of SPAS-12 added on for the grenade launcher.



The one thing wrong with this set is that his sidearm should be a USP, not a Berretta 92FS but hey, I'm not complaining. I generally like sci-fi themed military figures with their souped-up weapons ;p Bring it on


Who's next? After this release, will we see Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Gunnery Sergeant Asher "Sarge" Mahonin: The leader of the squad? One can only hope ;p
