It seems like black ops in the "in" thing for now (as it was last year) and will continue into 2010. Lots of 1:6 manufacturers are churning out black ops guys - the most recent preview was the TTL Toys City 1:6 CIA Quick Reaction Force operator with Zachary Quinto head sculpt (he plays Sylar in the "Heroes" TV series and Spock in the recent "Star Trek" movie) and Soldier Story is throwing in one of their own.
This is Soldier Story's CIA SAD Night Ops version 2.0 figure. Soldier Story had released the 1:6 scale CIA Special Activities Divison (SAD) Night Ops version 1 around November 2008 and it had a head sculpt that bore a resemblance to Israeli actor Oded Fehr. Check out the full review HERE.
This new set comes with an all new black assault vest that carries everything under the sun (or in this case, moon), including large size cable/wire cutters. His outfit includes the 1:6 Crye Precision style pants with built in knee pads. This guy also has a ton of weaponry - two Beretta pistols, one tactical shotgun and one tactical G-36 Assault Rifle with EOTech Sights and silencer. Most Impressive!
This latest CIA SAD Night Ops figure to be released will make a good addition and partner to the previous version. This one comes with a "Gerard Butler in need of a good dentist" head sculpt. Sure there is some resemblance but what's with the teeth? I would have preferred him with his mouth closed.
This CIA SAD Night Ops version 2.0 by Soldier Story comes with lots of gear and accessories. Soldier Story doesn't disappoint here
UPDATE May 15, 2010: Soldier Story 1/6 scale 12-inch CIA SAD Night Ops Ver 2.0 pictures in hand - is the actual product as good as the prototype / preview pictures? Check it out HERE
