    Very nice looking figure - I like it but, WHY put the rifle in that position?? For me that makes all the difference as to if I buy one or not!! Dave

    First, congratulations to Fernando Ruiz for starting an American Revolution series. Both the subject matter and the 75mm size ensure that I will be interested in any figures you bring to the market!
    The additional pics on FB show that the musket is resting on the top of the pack, behind the head. If that is the case, the musket sling (hopefully) can be altered to drop down onto the chest, and the (figure's) left arm/hand can be lowered towards the waist, in what I think would be a more natural position. I can understand a sculptor's desire to present something other than the standard "standing with musket butt grounded" pose. I do think this pose is a little un-natural looking, however.
    Nevertheless, I will be purchasing a copy of this figure, because the unit is one that has not been done recently (or in this size), as far as I am aware, and also to encourage Mr. Ruiz to continue with this new line of figures. Both this figure, and the Continental bust, should make for an auspicious start to the new line!
