CooModel SE002 1/6th scale Empires Series: Order du Temple / Templar Knight 12-inch figure

continued from previous post...

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.

Another offering of the knight by CooModel is the SE002 1/6th scale Empires Series: Order du Temple / Templar Knight 12-inch action figure which will come with Head, Figure body, Long sleeved undershirt, Pants, boots, Chain mail shirt plus Full set of knight's armour including: Helmet, Chest armour set, Arm armour, Leg armour, Hands in armour x 4, Double handed long sword, Dagger, Belt set, Shield, Custom base

Is the 1/6th scale head sculpt supposed to be Heath Ledger who starred in the 2001 medieval adventure comedy-drama film "A Knight's Tale" along with Shannyn Sossamon, Mark Addy, Alan Tudyk, Rufus Sewell, Paul Bettany as Geoffrey Chaucer, and James Purefoy as Sir Thomas Colville / Edward, the Black Prince. Historical accuracy aside, these look great although they are more fantasy than reality.
