Incoming: DAM Toys 1/6 scale US Marine Corps Scout Sniper Sergeant Major (Tom Berenger?)

Sniper is a 1993 action film starring Tom Berenger and Billy Zane as snipers on an assassination mission in Panama. Tom Berenger plays a US Marine Corps Master Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett, an experienced sniper stationed in the Panamanian jungle. His job is to seek out rebels and remove them using his sniper skills.

This is DAM Toys upcoming release: a 1/6 scale Marine Corps Scout Sniper Sergeant Major. The figure will come with a 1/6 scale real-like head sculpt, an alternate real-like head sculpt with turtle neck (for prone position and aiming action), a 12-inch DAM action body, one (1) pair of palms (hands) for holding his weapon, T-shirt (OD or Olive Drab), Woodland camouflage battle dress uniform, Woodland camouflage USMC fatigue cap, scarf, BDU belt, Panama outsole jungle boots, Nomex gloves, custom Ghillie suit, custom sniper vest, LC2 belt, M1956 butt pack, packed form ghillie suit "replacement parts", tarpaulin, M18 smoke grenade, incendiary grenade, LC2 1-quart canteen with pouch x 2, UM84 universal military holster, M1911A1 pistol, USMC Ka-Bar knife with leather sheath, Mk13mod0 signal flare, military watch, USMC M40A1 sniper rifle with leather sling.

I've not been collecting 12-inch military figures for a while now so as to focus more on other 1/6 scale figures from different genres but this figure has certainly got my attention. It's been a while since I've seen a nice looking Sniper figure and this particular one of Tom Berenger as a US Marine Corps Master Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett from the 1993 "Sniper" film is just too good to resist.

The last time I got a 12-inch USMC sniper with full 1/6 scale ghillie suit was the BBI Elite Force 1/6 scale USMC Sniper "Snake" which was released in 2001. You can check out my toy blog post with pictures HERE

DAM seems to have a whole lot on their release schedule. I wish they would put their stuff out at a higher rate of frequency. The wait from first look, to preorder to release is excruciating. Especially when they keep putting out such great product!

That second aiming headsculpt is a very good idea, great for exposing the figure in a cool action pose.
good thinking!
