I believe you hold the distinction of being the only guy to bash one of these, Spyglass. Very well done, too. A particularly tragic war, World War One done over, but with children thrown into the grinder.

Excellent bash there, on a very unique subject! :thumb
though of a very tragic time and a reminder of how brutal those in power can be, and whatever they can do to remain in power. :sadshake

Does anyone know what those ribbons with writings they wrap around their arms and helmets mean?

Ashmahala Fongu, that's cool.

Good job. That war was like a Super Bowl where neither of the teams are your favorite. You've managed to bring together the parts and pieces for a very convincing depiction of one of the millions involved.

Who says that you need Hot Toys to make the bash you want

It appears that the bandanas / headbands with Arabic script represent a "holy warrior" status. Green is the color of Islam, and the red seems to be worn by basiji in most cases, fanatic followers of Khomeini.

What an interesting and unique figure choice.

You've done a remarkable job on the RPK as well, it looks factory.

Well done.

....Also appears as though Green is the kisser, and Red is the kissee, in The Land of Eternal Manlove.

Seriously, though, aren't those bandanas about the same thing as what the Kamikaze wore? Like a talisman of epithets, prayers and general gung-ho stuff?

Looks like Spyglass nailed it.
