Great review of a wonderful figure, bro. I enjoyed reading about the historical stuff as well... Are you working on another Bravo6 Aussie figures review as well?

Thanks and Yes my bro. I am working on the other kit now and it is also a very good kit with different weapons and all. It will be added on Monday.

Personally I'd buy this figure just based on the figgie's gesture alone. There's a nice piratical look about this chappie. Thanks Engin for the nicely detailed writeup.

Although a good figure, I don't think it captures the spirit of the photo very well.

The figure doesn't look rugged enough i.e sleeves buttoned up, pack slung too high, equipment arranged too neatly on his webbing, silly bandanna on his head (makes him look too American ).

Other things ; his finger is on the trigger and the gun position makes him look far too Rambo.

Perhaps the worst aspect is that his eyes don't line up with his finger and his arm looks contorted.

Nice subject, but a poor interpretation of the photo. Thanks for the review though Engin.

Nice subject, but a poor interpretation of the photo.



That's because it's inspired by the picture, and not a replication of the photo - as noted in the review.

Thanks for the review, Engin.
