CooModel SE001 1/6th scale Empires Series: Teutonic Knight 12-inch action figure

Looks like more companies are getting into 1:6 scale Medieval knights (see the previous post on my toy blog HERE) and CooModel has released pictures of their version of the armored knight.

In the Middle Ages, or Medieval Times, knights wore suits of armor with under clothing designed to protect the knight from the weight and chafing of the armor. When not engaging in battle, knights wore woolen tights with a linen shirt, linen underpants, a codpiece, a belted tunic, a cape and closed-toe shoes. The armor that knights wore was made out of metal. Chain mail armor was made out of thousands of small metal links attached to each other that covered the vulnerable points of a knight's body. Chain mail was very flexible but provided inadequate protection against arrows and sword points.

CooModel SE001 1/6th scale Empires Series: Teutonic Knight 12-inch action figure features: Head, Figure body, Long sleeved undershirt, Pants, boots, Cap, Coat of cross, Chain mail shirt, Chain mail hood, Helmet , Arm armour, Hands in armour x 4, Double handed long sword, Dagger, Belt, Shield, Mace

It seems like this particular CooModel SE001 Empires Series: Teutonic Knight 12-inch figure comes with a 1/6th scale head sculpt that looks a lot like Sir Thomas Sean Connery who have played the role of King Richard the Lionheart in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) and King Arthur in First Knight (1995).
