Although quite sad about the passing of Sharon, one of my favorite warriors and strategists from modern history, it gave me the opportunity of revisiting one of my most dear 1:6 figures.

I was wondering, are there other Israeli 1/6 figures out there you could recommend checking out? Honestly, I've found nothing besides Arik.

Thanks! :)

Hi Seitse-

Thanks for sharing your Sharon pics.

Yes! Back about 10 years ago or so, Aromury put out an IDF Para, as well as a IDF Givati recon soldier. Both are pretty well done. In addition, Hasbro put out an IDF soldier as well around the same time period.

its a shame that no major manufacturer make some IDF stuff. would love to get a moshe dajan, IDF tanker, IDF sniper, female IDF soldier or entebbe commando. IDF, one of the best army with the coolest stuff and no one make a figure since years?

I was PRECISELY thinking about Moshe with his eye patch and all as in the pics together with Arik; you took the words off my lips, Kelly!

And you're very much spot on there, mate. It is a shame. Fine history, fine soldiers, a GREAT line could come from there, indeed.

Heya, seitse and all!

Has anybody tried "accurizing" a Soldier Story Ariel Sharon figure?

I have a wooden stocked Uzi to arm him with, but while reading about him was surprised to find out he was all of 5 foot 7 inches (170mm) tall... just shy of 11 3/16 inches in our scale. Very noticable. I'm considering getting another figure to try and cut down to proper size.

Here are some pictures of the Armoury 1/6 scale Israeli IDF Paratrooper :) There was also the vintage Group Action Joe Israeli Paratrooper 12-inch figure - pictures HERE
As noted in the toyhaven article though, the head sculpt and figure shown is not the original Armoury body. Also, the Action Joe shown in the other toyhaven article is not the same one that I was referring to- the Hasbro IDF figure that I recall didn't have the "lifelike" hair (and weird eyes) and was actually one of their better offerings.
