Pop Toys seems to be on a roll. Since they popped up recently with preview pictures of their 1/6th scale Water Monster Jumpsuit for 12-inch action figures (posted HERE), they have once again published pictures of their next release: 1/6th scale TAD Fighting Clothing outfits for 12-inch figures. TAD stands for Triple Aught Design and they offer 1:1 scale outdoor, tactical and adventure clothing and equipment for hiking and climbing. Military personnel swear by them and lots of SOF (Special Operations Force) personnel have been seen wearing their stuff. That's as good an advertisement as any.
If 1:1 military personnel wear TAD clothes and gear, then you can be sure 1:6 manufacturers / companies will produce and release 12-inch figures clad in TAD apparel / outfit and equipment.
So it's no surprise that 1/6th scale company Pop Toys will be releasing three different versions of TAD apparel for 12-inch figures. Model: POP1201-C TAD Fighting Clothing Set C consists of Sand TAD Tactical Stealth Hoodie, Sand TAD Mountaineering Combat Pants, Black Tight-fitting Long-sleeved T-shirt, Black Belt, Merrell Mountaineering Boots (with 2 feet joints which can be connected to Hot Toys or Soldier Story body) and Sand Cap or Tuque.
A tuque (Canadian English: /tuːk/, also spelled toque but still pronounced tuque), knit cap (American English), or beanie (UK, Australian, and New Zealand English), also variously known as a knit hat, toboggan, burglar beanie or stocking cap among other names – is a knitted cap, originally of wool though now often of synthetic fibers, that is designed to provide warmth in winter. Commonly referred to as a Watch Cap by sailors and in the US Military.
Why are the faces blurred out? That's because Pop Toys is only selling the outfits so the 12-inch figure body is NOT included and neither is the 1/6th scale head sculpt. Only clothes / apparel sold, people.
Model: POP1201-B TAD Fighting Clothing Set B consists of 1/6th scale Army Green TAD Tactical Stealth Hoodie, Army Green TAD Mountaineering Combat Pants, Sand Tight-fitting Long-sleeved T-shirt, Black Belt, Merrell Mountaineering Boots (with 2 feet joints which can be connected to Hot Toys or Soldier Story body), Black Cap
Model: POP1201-A TAD Fighting Clothing Set A consists of 1/6th scale Black TAD Tactical Stealth Hoodie, Black TAD Mountaineering Combat Pants, Army Green Tight-fitting Long-sleeved T-shirt, Black Belt, Merrell Mountaineering Boots (with 2 feet joints which can be connected to Hot Toys or Soldier Story body), Black Cap
What can I say? 1:6th scale figures wear better clothes / apparel than me haha
