    Cool fig. Any plans for a figureline in 120mm?
  4. Ong Active Member

    Cool! This has got to be one of the most heavily armed 1/35 modern resin figures on market! Consider this: 300 (or more) rounds of 7.62mm, around 240 rounds of 5.56mm, one hand grenade, and 15 rounds in the pistol.

    Generally the machine gunner doesn't carry an M4/M16, only his sidearm. The M240B that he is carrying weighs almost 28 lb by itself, not counting the ammo. Were I doing this fig I would leave off the M16A4 altogether.

    And what about the scissors?:ROFLMAO:

    Over armed? Is that possible? Maybe he's one bad ass devil-dog? Nice work, team, sure to be a winner for you.

    Many uses for scissors like that, it is common to have them. Useful for many things and carried frequently.

    Hi all! Thanks for your feedback! Yes, AM is planning to release also figureline in 120mm. The figure was made using these photos:

    Nice! So the real Marine actually does carry a M-16A4...Assistant Gunner, perhaps?

    Regarding the AM 120mm figures, that's exciting news? Will the 120mm figures be direct copies of the 1/35 figures, or new designs? Will the 120mm figures release in 2016? I'm prepped to buy the 1/35 figures, but if the 120mm ones are direct copies, just enlarged, I may just wait for the 120mm version. Thanks for the answers!

    Did someone say that that figure may be released in 1/16 scale (120mm is a length)? Then put me down for one, thank you.
  14. Sgt. Red Active Member

    120mm?? Count me in.
  15. DUFF Active Member

    The 120mm figures won't be dirrect copies. They will be in new design.
  16. MrBMB A Fixture

    Yes 120mm please :)
  17. Sgt. Red Active Member

    When can we expect them?
  18. Ong Active Member

    And will the first 120mm figures be modern British, U.S., WW2, Russian, Vietnam, or....?
