The SAS CRW (Counter Revolutionary Warfare) was formed in 1975 after Prime Minister Edward Heath asked the Ministry of Defence to prepare for any possible terrorist attack similar to the massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics. SAS CRW is trained in Close Quarter Battle (CQB) and sniper techniques and specialises in hostage rescue in buildings or on public transport.

The last SAS figure I reviewed was the Loading Toys 22 SAS Regiment which was posted in my toy blog HERE. That set had no 12-inch figure, just the SAS outfit and equipment, including weapons.
I have a certain affinity for the SAS because it was an Action Man 1/6 scale SAS CRW 12-inch figure from the 1980s that got me started on my 1/6 scale figure collecting hobby back in 1994. You can check out how the vintage SAS figure looks like in my post dating back to October 2007 HERE
IMHO the best 1/6 scale SAS CRW 12-inch figure produced and released so far has to be the Medicom Cro-Magnon MSFS (Medicom Special Forces Series) 1 - SAS (Special Air Service), released in 2000. You can check out the full review HERE :)
Comparing this upcoming release of the MC Toys M-035 1/6 scale SAS CRW (1987-2000) 12-inch action figure to the one released by Medicom Toys in 2000, it does seem a bit lacking in accessories.
It's still nicely done and I'll most likely be getting this figure and adding him to the SAS collection
The 1/6 scale head sculpt reminds me of the Welsh actor Luke Evans, as seen in "Fast and Furious 6" as Owen Shaw, a former Special Air Service soldier now leading a heist gang.
