Toys City 1:6 German Sniper Major König Preview

Erwin König, aka Heinz Thorvald (died c. 1942), was a highly skilled Wehrmacht sniper allegedly killed by the legendary Red Army sniper Vasily Zaytsev during the Battle of Stalingrad. The 2001 movie "Enemy at the Gates" portrays a fictional account of the sniper duel between Zaytsev (played by Jude Law) and König (played by Ed Harris) during the final days of the Battle of Stalingrad.

This witnesses another battle between TT and DID. Both release Koning. The DID's closely resembles Jude Law and Ed Harris. The outcome of this battle is almost clear.
