Incoming: Soldier Story 1/6th scale U.S. Army in Afghanistan 12-inch ISAF Military Figure

The heat is ON! We already know that Crazy Dummy will be coming out with two modern US Army Soldiers from the current Afghanistan campaign - one an infantryman (see previous post), the other a light machine gunner (previewed HERE). Guess what? Soldier Story will also be releasing a 1/6th scale US Army soldier in Afghanistan, but they have combined the infantryman AND the machine gunner into ONE set. That means you get the complete US Army Uniform Set (and figure) with new camo pattern (the Army's interpretation of MultiCam) PLUS you can choose between an M4 Carbine or Mk48 Light Machine Gun, with appropriate pouches to accommodate both weapons.

International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), often called the Coalition Forces, is a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan that was established by the United Nations Security Council in December 2001 by Resolution 1386, as envisaged by the Bonn Agreement. Its main purpose is to train the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) and assist Afghanistan rebuild key government institutions but is also engaged in the 2001-present war with insurgent groups.

Soldier Story 1/6th scale U.S. Army in Afghanistan 12-inch ISAF Military Figure will come with: 12-inch S2 body and 1/6th scale head sculpt, Camouflage net, MICH 2000 helmet, NVG mount, Cat eye bands, PSQ-20 night vison goggles, PSQ-20 battery case, SF helmet light, Multicam TRU Gen2 combat shirt, OCP ACU combat pants, Khaki belt, Khaki combat suspenders, "M" gloves set, Leg kit, Bare feet short connected set

As it's name implies, the Boo Boo Pouch was designed to hold non-essential essentials. Killing bad guys, defending Freedom, slaying hordes of undead is serious work – but sometimes a basic pouch is needed for other vital gear – like a phone or chapstick or wallet. Originally made to hold range essentials such as ear plugs, hand sanitizer, chapstick, and small bandages and offered as the "Boo Boo Kit", the pouch now comes slightly larger and empty to be filled with whatever items are needed.

Hi Alex,

Did you get this? I'm thinking between this and the Crazy Dummy version. Crazy Dummy got some good reviews for their ISAF.

I might be getting SS version for the SAW Gunner version. Just like it more than Crazy Dummy one.

Hi Dennis

I didn't get any of the latest military figures :( too many figures being released and there's only so much moolah going around haha

This one's nice because of the multiple weapons but then again, who needs so many weapons? It's just nice to have LOL. They are all pretty equal in terms of gear but I'm not too sure of Crazy Dummy's quality as compared to Soldier Story.
