Incoming: Caltek 1/6 scale Medal of Honor Warfighter Tom "Preacher" 12-inch figure

Medal of Honor (MoH) is a series of first-person shooter video games. The first game was developed by DreamWorks Interactive (now known as Danger Close) and published by Electronic Arts for the PlayStation game console in 1999. Medal of Honor spawned a series of follow-up games including multiple expansions spanning various console platforms and the PC and Mac. The first twelve installments take place during World War II, while the more recent games focus on modern warfare.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter, the upcoming fourteenth installment in the series and the direct sequel to the 2010 game, is scheduled to be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 23, 2012. In the video game, Tom "Preacher" is an American sailor and Navy SEAL and the Rifleman of AFO team Neptune. Preacher is a hardened DEVGRU Operator in AFO Neptune.

Some trivia about Preacher: Preacher's callsign is rather ironic, as he doesn't talk very much during gameplay. His callsign may allude to a hidden faith or religion, most likely Evangelical Christianity or Catholicism as Preacher doesn't appear to use curse words as often or frequently.

Preacher's line about needing a bigger boat is a reference to the movie Jaws. His real name is Tom, making him the first Task Force member to have part of their real name actually said.

Like they say in the United States Navy SEALs: "The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday"
