303 TOYS 1/6 scale China series 12-inch Soldier with Spear figure - time to build a Chinese army

The term "grunt" is used in the military as a general term for someone who's MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) is "Infantry". In the Marine Corps all MOS' preceeded by the number "03" are Infantry. About as "grunt" as you can get in the Corps is "0311 - Basic Rifleman" (but they prefer the term "Jarhead"). In recent times, Grunt is used to refer to an Army soldier of the combat arms branches, being Infantry ("Grunt"), Armor ("Tanker"), and Cavalry Scout ("Girl Scout") although it is still understood to mean the Army in general. It's slang for "An infantryman in the U.S. military, especially in the Vietnam War: 'They were called grunts....They were the infantrymen, the foot soldiers of the war' (Bernard Edelman)".

Every army needs its grunts. The Chinese Army is no different. Without the grunts, a General is just a man in a uniform with a lot of stars and no bloody use unless he has an army to command and send to battle / war.

This is the upcoming 303 TOYS 1/6 scale China series 12-inch Soldier with Spear figure and he will come wit 1/6 scale Head sculpt, 12-inch figure Body, four interchangeable Hands, Clothes / uniform, Pants, Shoes, Belt, Spear, Armor and Helmet

From the ancient Chinese war movie, we often see alot of these foot soldiers. CaoCao alone got 100000 of them, haha. But who cares if they are 'calefare'? They got themselves a 1/6 figure even before CaoCao...
