Sneak Peek at Custom Factory's Critical Moment 2 British Special Unit Team "Price" and "Soap"

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (stylized as CALL OF DUTY: MW3, and also known as COD: MW3, or simply MW3) is the eighth main Call of Duty game, and the fifth developed by Infinity Ward. It is the sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The game sees the return of former Task Force 141 Cpt. John "Soap" MacTavish (voiced by Kevin McKidd), former S.A.S. Cpt. John Price (Billy Murray) and Russian informant "Nikolai", who are on the run after killing the rogue U.S. Army Lt. General Shepherd, the main antagonist of the previous game.

It seems like Custom Factory (another new entrant in the 1/6th market?) will be releasing both Cpt. John Price and "Soap" MacTavish 12-inch figures as part of their British Special Unit Team IX under their Critical Moment 2 title and for obvious reasons, they cannot use their actual names for their product so it's Team Commander S Quinn and Team Captain P Miller instead.

John "Soap" MacTavish is the main protagonist of the S.A.S. missions in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. He returns in Modern Warfare 2 leading Task Force 141. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, he is badly wounded after killing Lt. General Shepherd by launching a throwing knife into his eye in Modern Warfare 2 but joins the player on most missions involving Yuri and is deemed as a very important role in running the game's storyline smoothly.

Captain John Price is a recurring supporting character throughout the Call of Duty games specifically developed by Infinity Ward. Price is known for his seeming invincibility and for his mustache. Occasionally he goes deep undercover.

Call of Duty 4's main commanding officer is Captain John Price of the British Special Air Service (SAS). Price joins Task Force 141 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 together with "Soap" MacTavish.

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Price returns as a protagonist during the game's final mission, Dust to Dust. Otherwise, he continues to act as the commander of the disavowed Task Force 141, channeling their efforts into tracking down Vladimir Makarov and killing him for the terrorist attacks he is responsible for.
