    HELP! Figure Accessory/Equipment Question - ACE LRRP

    I am pretty new to this, so please forgive the newbie question. I just purchased ACE Toys LRRP Cobra figure, and it is great. However, I am struggling getting all his gear on him in a way that resembles the photos of the figure...this is especially true for the ruck and pouches.

    Any tips/tricks on the best way to get all the gear onto a warrior figure? How about keeping it all in place?

    Are you having trouble with the ALICE clips that come with him?
    If so, this little diagram may help.


    I find some of the best ways to get ideas for a load out is to view reference photos of the era, or even completion photos of the full figure.

    Some items were taped down, some secured with straps...it depends on what, and where, you want an item.

    Is there a specific item giving you some trouble?

    This is helpful, thanks. One thing I'm having an issue with is folding the bright orange signal panel so that it appears similar to the reference photos that ace put out.

    Hmm..for the signal panel, I wonder if it'd help to wet it down first, then fold...and maybe try some thin clear elastics or tied fishing line to help hold the shape tight...
    I can't say for sure what may help in regard to that bit of gear, it's one of the few I don't have haha.


    If it still winds up too bulky...you could try trimming it down a bit...if you aren't going to be displaying it unrolled. I had to do something similar with a poncho liner for my Lt. Dan figure.
