Soldier Story 3rd Fallschirmjäger Division Ardennes 1944 Preview

If you'd missed out on all the Dragon 1/6 scale Fallschirmjägers in the past, this is a great way to start. Soldier Story will be releasing their version of a 1/6 scale 12-inch World War II 3rd Fallschirmjäger Division German Paratrooper from Ardennes, 1944.

Who does the head sculpt resemble? There's a bit of Peter Weller's likeness from RoboCop fame, Viggo Mortensen (the enigmatic Command Master Chief John Urgayle from "G.I. Jane") and the exceptional Christoph Waltz, best known for his portrayal of SS Standartenführer (Colonel) Hans Landa in the 2009 film "Inglourious Basterds", for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor at the 82nd Academy Awards in 2010, the second Austrian actor to receive an Oscar.

The 1/6 Luger P08 pistol is amazing. Certainly the first of its kind.

He also comes with a captured G.I. weapon, the M1 Carbine. Spoils of war.
