Following their 1:6th scale World War One figure announcement from earlier this year (read the story HERE), CalTek and Timewalker Toys share with us a preview of the first figure release.
Created with special assistance from the National World War One Museum, the figure series is a one-sixth scale exploration of the material culture of soldiers who fought in the watershed event of the 20th Century: World War One. The series opens as the war begins, with an Imperial German Infantryman of the 27th Regiment, 3rd Company at the Battle of Ličge in August 1914.
From the custom color and weave of the M1907 tunic and trousers, matched against period field-gray wool, to the brown leather side-stitched M1866 marching boots, to the proportionally correct rimmed and crowned buttons, every attempt has been made to bring collectors the most detailed and historically accurate World War One figure yet produced.
The prototype shown here is in its final stages of development, with only a few additions and modifications that have yet to be completed. Stay tuned for the official launch with more pictures, to be followed by pricing and release date information.
