Triad Toys EBS Tyrus 12-Inch Figure

This is the Triad Toys 1:6 scale 12-inch Tyrus Kilemahl: Elite Ballistics Support (EBS). Some background: With the highest confirmed killing record of all time, Tyrus Kilemahl has become a celebrity among the armed forces of America. Facing numerous court martial charges for using excessive force as well as civil suits for violence, Tyrus is forced to quit the military despite his willingness to serve the country. Gunn Industries quickly seized the opportunity by creating a new fire support division to be led and trained by Tyrus. Dying for some action, Tyrus quickly joins the Elite Ballistics Support division to provide private support for hot zones when the military units are unable to go beyond their powers.

Triad Toys Elite Ballistics Support (EBS) Tyrus Box Packaging. Guess which American actor the headsculpt is supposed to resemble?

Triad Toys Tyrus: EBS (Elite Ballistics Support) 12-Inch Figure out of the box. He comes with 1 Tyrus headsculpt on the Caucasian Omega Body. Tyrus has real hair and a detailed tattoo on the back of his head, real metal earrings, and a left-arm tribal tattoo.

He's wearing 1 Black Sleeveless Shirt, 1 Blue BDU Pants, 1 Pair Tactical Knee Pads, 1 Pair Tactical Boots, 1 Pair Tactical Gloved Hands, 1 Tactical Pants Belt, 1 Pair Tactical Shoulder Armor with Flexi-Grip Pads, 1 Tactical Elbow Armor with Flexi-Grip Pads.

He also has 1 Side Leg Holster and 1 Left Leg Drop Pouch with Functional Pockets and Buckle Straps

He is wearing 1 Modular Weapons Vest with Removable Pouches

Close-up of the Triad Toys 1:6 scale Tyrus Kilemahl head sculpt with realistic looking Mohawk hairstyle and a mean demeanor with painted on goatee. Why is he wearing real metal earrings in his right ear? Isn't it common knowledge that "Left is right (i.e. straight) and right is NOT i.e. GAY?

The 1:6 head sculpt looks a lot like Robert Lyle Knepper, best known for starring as Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell in the Fox network's drama series, Prison Break. In 2007, he appeared in the films Hitman and Transporter 3. He joined the cast of Heroes for its fourth season.

Tyrus accessories include 1 Ballistics Face Mask, 1 Chrome Blue Tactical Sunglasses, 1 Tactical Knife with Arm Holster, 1 Bluetooth Tactical Communications Headset, and 1 G4H (Gun Four <4> Hire) Custom Pistol (very much a repainted Enforcer pistol). The mask makes him look like Phillip Clyde, a private military contractor with the Security and Strategy Corporation (SSC) from the video game "Army of Two".

The most unique weapon Tyrus has: the ATAC Modular Submachine Gun. The ATAC Submachine Gun comes with Rifle Scope, Sights, Silencer, Tactical Light, Laser pointer, 2 different Ammo Clips, 2 different butt stocks, foregrip handle and Grenade Launcher. Triad's ATAC system is supposed to be completely modular and exchangeable with other ATAC weapons.

The ATAC Modular Submachine Gun can be assembled into many different configurations

The ATAC as a Grenade Launcher

The weapon could be configured to look like the TDI Kriss Super V submachine gun. The name Kriss comes from Indonesian sword or large knife with flame-like blade. This weapon is intended to provide operators with improved control over accuracy and bullet dispersion, in both semi-automatic and full automatic modes, while firing hard-hitting .45 ACP ammunition. The overall design also permits the Kriss to be fired single-handedly when required by tactical situations and with adequate accuracy.

Both Robert Lyle Knepper's character and this figure look like Bill Leeb in the early '90s from Front Line Assembly.

thanks for the heads up (pun intended) :) Nolan

just like how Johnny Depp based his characterization of Jack Sparrow on the Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.
