Preview Dam Toys 1/6th scale SDU (Special Duties Unit) Assault Team Member 12-inch figure

The Special Duties Unit (Abbreviation: SDU; Chinese: 特別任務連, nicknamed Flying Tigers 飛虎隊) is an elite paramilitary tactical unit of the Hong Kong Police Force. Established in July 1974, it is a sub-division of the Police Tactical Unit (PTU). Its primary functions include counter-terrorism, hostage rescue and dealing with crimes (usually involving firearms) which are considered too dangerous for regular police to handle. The unit was formerly trained by the British SAS before the handover of Hong Kong to China.

The Special Duties Unit consists of a support group, administration group and the action group. The action group is the core of the Unit, further categorised into the assault team and the sniper team. Operation Team, which is divided into Team A and Team B, together with the sniper team. Team C is responsible for the training of Special Duties Unit officers.

It's been a while since a 1:6 scale company / manufacturer decided to produce and release a 12-inch SDU (Special Duties Unit) Assault Team Member. It was many years ago back in 1999 that Dragon Models Limited (DML) released the first 1:6 scale SDU Assault Team Leader 12-inch action figure - reviewed on my toy blog HERE followed by the entire team (see pictures HERE). Hot Toys also released SDU figures back in 2003 - see my action figure review HERE and HERE.
