    What is not a release, then a German or American soldier. How about a Russian, English, Italian or Japanese soldier of the Second World War?

    While I agree it is a great looking figure, it does have a couple of problems. The figure is wearing the early war uniform used up until later in 1944, except for the pants. These are either the M1942 paratrooper pants or a later version of the M1943. Easily remedied with an X-acto knife and some sandpaper. When I first looked at the figure, I wondered about the pose. The BAR weighs 16 pounds. While a soldier might assume this pose for a short time, I doubt he would be able to hold it for any length, unless he were a young Arnold Swarzenegger.

    That pose is straight out of Saving Private Ryan

    The butt is resting on his web belt which is helping to distribute those 16 pounds.

    The trousers are HBT uniform M1941
