Dragon's Bavaria Patton came with two rings - USMA (West Point) Graduation ring and his wedding ring
Dragon's head sculpt of General George Patton is much better than Hasbro's

General Patton deliberately cultivated a flashy, distinctive image in the belief that this would motivate his troops. He was usually seen wearing a highly polished helmet, riding pants and high cavalry boots. He carried flashy ivory-handled, nickel-plated revolvers as his most famous sidearms (a Colt Single Action Army .45 "Peacemaker" and later also a S&W Model 27 .357).

Patton took violent offense at any reference to his pistols being pearl handled. He said, "Only a pimp in a New Orleans whorehouse or a tin-horn gambler would carry a pearl-handled pistol." In no uncertain terms he would have the offender know that his revolver was indeed "IVORY-GOD-F**KING-DAMN-HANDLED" and with that he would turn on his heel and leave.
On December 9, 1945, Patton was severely injured in a road accident. Paralyzed from the neck down, he was rushed to the military hospital in Heidelberg. Patton died of an embolism on December 21, 1945.
Wow. Much nicer figure than the Hasbro version. Looking at Hasbro's, It's hard not to notice the zipper on Patton's coat. One of the things that bothers me out of 1/6th scale figures is the zippers- everything else is to scale EXCEPT them. Patton could use his zipper's pull tab to deflect enemy bullets it's so freakin' big.
Did Dragon also do an Eisenhower?
Hi Dash, Dragon released 3 versions of Patton but not a single Eisenhower. Most probably because he isn't as colorful as Patton ever was. In terms of appearance, Ike's pretty ordinary and Dragon knows collectors don't like plain and simple stuff. Hasbro did a GI Joe version because he is ALL American!!
Zippers have come a long way too, thank goodness!! Hot Toys and other manufacturers have looked into that oversized pull tab issue.
Thanks for looking. Always a pleasure to know you pop by once in a while ;p
