Preview DAM Toys Ghost series 1/6 Special Ops Center GLINT Team Leader: Ryder Watson

DAM I want this and I want this now :) This latest preview of DAM Toys offering of a Special Operations Center GLINT Team Leader: Ryder Watson from DAM Toys Ghost series No. SF001 is making me all excited and giddy like a child on Christmas Day morning

There are lots of new stuff being released with this set but the Spartan-like helmet and futuristic looking body armor is getting me all hyped up.

DAM Toys Ghost series SF001 1/6 scale Special Operations Center GLINT Team Leader: Ryder Watson 12-inch military figure parts list will include: 1/6 scale real like head sculpt, DAM 12-inch action body, 3 gloved palms for holding weapon, A-frame ballistic helmet, Head-Loc retention system H-nape, MPLS LED light, helmet rail, helmet ears, helmet chops, VAS Shroud for helmet, ANAVS NVG mount, AVS9 Night Vision Binocular with battery pack, SORDIN headset, U94 PTT, AN/PRC-148 MBITR radio, 2.0 M frame ballistic eyewear. Scroll down to see more pictures!

Also comes with Combat suit, combat pants, BDU belt, body armour, shoulder plates, duty belt, pelvic protection, TALON drop-leg magazine pouch, MBITR radio pouch, hydration pack with tube, combat boots, SOC patch A, SOC patch B, GLINT patch, Morale patch A, Morale patch B, light stick (long) x 2, light sticks (short) x 2, cable ties x 2, combat knife with scabbard

This is even cooler than the recently released Soldier Story 1/6 scale FBI CIRG (Critical Incident Response Group) 12-inch Figure - see the preview pictures HERE. I already got the FBI CIRG figure (see my HAUL) but just haven't found the time to take it out and review it. Too many toys, too little time haha

AR-15 rifle with RISII, UBR stock, AN/PEQ-15 laser, COMP M4 reddot sight, MBUS back up sight, M4 2000 flashhider and suppressor, low profile rail cover x 2, grip, scout light with low profile mount, 5.56 pmag x 6, GNE2 fastmag M4 mag pouch x 3, sling adaptor, rifle sling

Glock-17 pistol, Glock 9mm 17-round magazine x 2, Glock 9mm 30-round magazine x 1, Glock CQC Serpa holster, belt loop paddle, CQC single stack pistol mag holster x2

Whether or not this is what the military is currently using or testing remains to be confirmed although the ultra cool helmet has indeed surfaced and is being used / tested.

The rest of the gear / garb looks like it came right out of Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon. Josh Duhamel as U.S. Army Lt. Colonel William Lennox, the Commander of the classified strike team NEST – an international taskforce battling Decepticons with the Autobots – wore this almost exact same attire (see pictures below)

Check out my kitbash 1/6 scale Josh Duhamel as US Army Captain William Lennox 12-inch figure (from the first Transformers movie) HERE :)

Doesn't matter if this DAM Toys Ghost series 1/6 scale Special Operations Center GLINT Team Leader: Ryder Watson 12-inch figure is real or fiction, it's just way too cool to be ignored. I want ONE... No, make that TWO and I want it now haha

Wow, I'm normally not into military figures, but this one really looks cool! The insignia reminds me of the video game Ghost Recon franchise; those games are usually based in the near future. I think there's a lot of customization in that game as well. However, I haven't played the latest one, so there's no way I can say whether this is based on the game.

This is too DAM cool (pardon the pun). So many options for kitbash ideas or even displayed on its own. Just too good to resist... MUST HAVE :)

Those helmet chops make it for me.

So it sounds like this will be the first of a series, exciting! Just imagining displaying the upcoming Hot Toys Snake Eyes with a completed Special Ops Centre squad is making my heart beat faster. :-)
