Incoming: DAM 1/6 Delta Force Team Leader, Task Force Ranger, Somalia 1993

I can honestly say that this is a DAM toy :) Well, it is. The third figure to be released by DAM toy will be this 1/6 scale Delta Force Team Leader 12-inch Figure from their line-up of figures based on Task Force Ranger, Somalia 1993 or better known as Black Hawk Down figures , based on the 2001 film "Black Hawk Down" about how 123 elite U.S. soldiers (comprising United States Army Rangers, Delta Force and 160th SOAR) are deployed in Somalia to capture two top lieutenants of a renegade warlord and find themselves in a desperate battle with a large force of heavily-armed Somalis when their Black Hawk helicopter gets shot down.

DAMtoy (formerly VTS) has already released their 75th Ranger Regiment Chalk Leader of Task Force Ranger from Operation Gothic Serpent circa Somalia 1993 (previewed HERE) and has shown us prototype pictures of their DAM 1/6 Grenadier 75th Ranger, Operation Gothic Serpent SOMALIA 1993 (pictures HERE). They've just released pictures of their third Task Force Ranger 12-inch figure which is also their first 1/6 scale Delta Force Team Leader :)

It's not Hoot next, but Sanderson instead

This DAMtoy Task Force Ranger Delta Force Team Leader 12-inch figure is based on William Fichtner as SFC Jeff Sanderson from "Black Hawk Down" (who is based on real Delta Force operator SFC Paul Howe).

This upcoming Task Force Ranger Delta Force Team Leader 12-inch figure will come with 1/6 scale Real-like headsculpt and 12-inch figure body, OD GI T-shirt, 3-color Desert BDU (battle dress uniform), US flag patch, PT body armor RBA, Omega custom TC-vest, Pro-tec helmet, TC-goggles, GSG9 boots, Hellstorm knee pads, SAS mark III holster, Nomex flight gloves, S belt, LC2 compass / first aid case, LC2 canteen and canteen cover, 0254A universal pouch, Radio pouch, M67 frag grenade pouch x 3, M18 smoke grenade pouch x 2, Double pistol mag pouch x 2, Shotgun shell band, ALICE buttpack, MX300R, Single side traveler headset, RO727 carbine, Flash light with gun mount, Red-dot scope, M16 magazine x 4, 870 shotgun, Shotgun shell x3, M1911A1 pistol, .45 pistol mag x 3, M67 frag grenade, M18 smoke grenade x2

Art Figures has also announced the release of a 1/6 scale Delta Force - SFC 12-inch Figure based on the same character of SFC Jeff Sanderson. You can view the pictures HERE for comparison :)

This looks DAM impressive (pun intended)! DAMtoy seems to have the skills in making the gear proportionally correct scale-sizes. And if you have already ordered the first two figures, you got to get this one as well ;p Pre-order at TFH before 22-12-2011

The headsculpt doesn't look like the real actor. This is a direct competition between DAM and Art Figures. The headsculpt from the latter looks better.

I agree with anonymous. Art-Figures sculpt is the best between the 2. SCULPT-WISE, I think I will go with TTL or even HeadPlay's version.
