Australian SAS Regiment Trooper

I also got this figure, the Royal Australian SAS Regiment Trooper "SGT Sean Bannon" at the same time as the SASR HALO. My intention was to combine the two sets into one for a more complete SASR HALO trooper coz if you remove the HALO parachute rig from "CPL Chris Naylor", he'll be just in his AusCam BDU and weapon, not exactly decked out to take out "tangos". However, after kitting out the two, I liked them both individually and that's how they stayed. "SGT Sean Bannon" is more complete as a trooper than "CPL Chris Naylor" is as a HALO jumper.

Face resembles that of Telly Savalas, who played a religious fanatic named Archer J Maggott in the movie "The Dirty Dozen".

"SGT Sean Bannon" with boonie hat, SF Lash headset comlink with boom mike connected to radio transmitter in pouch

His watch to help him keep time

Camelbak Hydration System - a vast improvement over the water canteens of yore

SAS dagger, "for use in emergency" and to keep tangos real quiet without waking up his buddies

His trusty sidearm

"SGT Sean Bannon" is armed with the M4 assault rifle with M68 aimpoint CQB scope, power grip and suppressor

Why isn't this action figure in Australia hence being a model of an Australian Soldier?

hi friend actually his face is more likely modelled after Jason Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy and the villain from that Mel Gibson flick the Patriot... yeap just my opinion here though
