    breacher-mask = DML Hit Team / additional back-pouches = Hot Toys / shotgun = Medicom SAS / cable-ties = smallest one available at hardware shops! LOL

    arm-patch = from a random BBI-fig (had wanted to do something "clever" but was foiled by "laziness" ) / additional chest pouches from BBI Swat

    Damned nice pictures, sixx, it feels like he's raiding a warehouse or something.
    Like what you did with the sling too, great work!

    He looks good, so are you happy overall with the fit, quality, etc, for the money laid out? It seems like a good trade-off.

    saiko = thanks dude! - for the sling, i figured it'll be easier to coil around rather than cut away the excess

    pivot = hope ya have fun with it as much as i did!

    pukingdog = overall i am surprisingly more than happy with the fit - especially if they're on a Hot Toys body. i've tried a BBI-G3 which didnt work as well. havent tried with other bods like DML yet tho.

    i would not begrudge quality, as they are not as "luxurious" as Hot Toys' but as utilitarian goes, they are pretty much bang for buck and in this day and age, where everthing else has gone on above a price-point, this set is a welcomed relief, if not reprieve.

    but on the other hand, if ya need to get a nude, boots and weapons etc - this set sorta balances out. you might even say it is equivilant to getting a boxed set = which might be true as well, but in the end, if you're a team-builder looking for a basic set to mix and match with your other assorted gear, then this set is perfect.

    as you can see, im not much for quality over quantity, but i'd reckon this to a "non-commital" purchase ~ meaning it ain't an expensive item i'd just display and be afraid to play with - i'd be bashing this sucker whenever i feel like and sometimes that ain't a bad thing, no?

    im afraid im not making much sense here, am i?
