Vietnam War, USMC Infantryman

Dragon released some nice looking Nam figures in their heyday. They seem to have lost the fight in the 12" market, leaving it to players like Hot Toys, DiD, ace, Toy Soldier and others. A pity coz they were doing some great stuff then. This USMC figure (released in 2001) was from the period of Jan-Feb 1968 at Khe Sanh. Dragon always named their figures, this one was "Russell" and bore an uncanny resemblance to Russell Crowe, famous at that period for "Gladiator" followed by "Proof of Life".

Russell Crowe, he has put on some weight since then.
