    For a while, i thought its a D-boy!!

    It looks real nice as a whole and being released in only 500 pcs, it sure is interesting whether would this set hit fever pitch on evilbay?

    hmmm... judging from their earlier releases, i somehow think this is a step back for ACE.. not really pushing the envelop like the SFOD, SEAL 10 n NSW gunner somehow..
    i'll pass.

    if its in the same price range as their recent new releases, this figure looks pretty lacking in gear.

    It's too boring - nothing new - just another unhealthy obsession on SEAL fever.

    I have an suggestion for ACE. Change to something new, interesting figure - a Brit soldier OR Canadian Solider in desert BDU operating in Afghanistan. . . OR a US Ranger in Grenada 1983/ Vietnam

    Nice looking but may be a pass for me as well. The HS looks kind of lame and like something you would see in your local Abercrombie & Fitch store. I do like the loose handset with the real nomex gloves though.

    I'm going to guess that because this set is an exclusive for Figure Base it's more of a variant on the NSW gunner set than a whole new figure - hence the large amount of rehashed parts. The quality looks superb as usual, but unfortunately the subject matter has been covered many, many times before.

    ACE really needs to do something different with their next release if they want to capture the attention of the fickle 1/6 consumer - especially with the high level of "wow factor" from the latest Hot Toys and Soldier Story figures!

    Nice, clean looking fig. Pity the nearest I'll get to to it is pawing hopelessly at this screen.

    i can't help it, i never get excited by ACE products. seems like something you could have bashed a million times by now.

    at least TS and HT release new stuff that no one has ever done before.

    Over all, good looking figure for sure. Subject matter is another story with the Navy VBSS story. So, I am assuming this is a SEAL or could it be a US Cost Guard figure? Love the Plate Carrier System and the head sculpt. Would love to see a SAS solder though or a US Army Medic, or German KSK. Even if was just an equipment set.

    Very nice setup. We rarely see the black equipments in 1/6th these days.

    I want Bluegun BTW.

    I also thought that the SEALS universally used the SIG 9mm. Why doesnt anyone take the time to accurately make one of them?

    BBi did, actually. it even included a laser aiming module/tactical flashlight and a suppressor. it came with a bunch of figures, some of them should never have had a SIG, though.

    besides, the figure doesn't have to be a SEAL, does it? SEALs aren't the only Navy personell that do VBSS.

    Looks like I jumped the gun, assuming this was yet another SEAL - a quick check of photos on the US Navy website shows this gear is in use by "regular" sailors assigned to their ships VBSS team. The only difference is they have unmodified BDUs and wear black PASGT profile helmets when using live weapons.

    I hadnt thought about it and it does in fact not say SEAL on the promo pix. I recon that could address my issue. I guess the presence of the big US NAVY patch dead center on the vest would leand towards it not being a SEAL. I guess that I am just conditioned to expect it to be a SEAL.
