Soldier Story US Army FCS "TF" Version Preview

Yet another 1/6 scale FCS MultiCam outfit from Soldier Story (I've lost count of how many sets they have produced and released. Let's recap - there was one with Josh Duhamel HS, another with Jason Statham likeness, and one with HS that resembled Channing Tatum). This one is the TF version. TF for "TransFormers" i.e. as worn by the soldiers in the first movie.

The latest head sculpt looks just like Cynric as portrayed by Til Schweiger in the 2004 film "King Arthur". Cerdic (Stellan Skarsgård) and Cynric were depicted as Saxon invaders, and were killed, respectively, by King Arthur and Lancelot at the Battle of Badon Hill. Til Schweiger is best known for his role as Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz in the 2009 film "Inglourious Basterds".

There seems to be quite a few brand new pieces from this release. The ranger vest, the brand new M4 suppressor and 1911A1 with tac light. Not to mention Fast Mags. Now there is such a wide variety of 1:6 scale MC pouches available.

Check out the new Mechanix M-Pact® 2 Glove with Knuckle Protection although it isn't my cup of tea. Would've preferred it to be all black.

Weapons of choice

Hi Tony, Welcome back :) I like the HS a lot too. And the gear ain't too shabby either.

Hey AL, SS gear is always NICE. I only find the MC outfit a little too big and baggy for my liking.
