    Congrats on scoring this guy, DML put some work into him. Still looks real good.

    Just as a warning. A lot of people, myself included, had an issue with the thumb splitting away from the palm of the hand just from the stress of the hand gripping the rifle. Just keep an eye on it.

    Pretty cool set,

    I got Mike and Ron from an army surplus shop years ago and still use parts from them even now.

    CHEERS!

    Neither of my Russell's came with a towel!
    This was a nice release, though I wasn't a huge fan of the rubber arms, or the stiffness of the hands, had a heckuva time fitting the rifle in them, so I just swapped bodies to a regular one.

    I actually just recruited one of my Russell's into the USCM.

    Russell is a classic, I ended up wapping bodies as well.

    Nice score!! I had the same problem with the hand on another one of DML's rubber-armed bodies - I think it was Fernando.

    Yeah, my hands split wide open at the knuckles....the hands on that figure will eventually fail you, just prepare for it.

    I got that as a nude loose figure. With MOS coming out you could put together a young Jor-el figure.

    I remember saving up to buy this back in high school. The trigger finger broke off the second day.

    Nice figure! I still have mine... the only change I made was to add the top to the uniform. His arms were getting sticky and dust was getting stuck to them, so I covered them up.
