John joined the military at the age of 15. He was a war veteran and got involved in many major battles during X2-War. He was the youngest person to obtain the rank as Sergeant in the 6th Special Squad.

John's first humanoid kill was taken during the initial of X2-War. During sabotage period, he shot an old lady humanoid who carried C-4 approaching his team. An unofficial report showed that she was cradling a toddler in her other hand.

John Reese later stated, "That lady was already a dead. I wasn't going to let her to take any of my team members with her. It is my duty to protect my people and the children on the nearby street. It was a tough decision to make, but my conscious is clear".

At the end, John Reese and his surviving team were able to get rid of all the danger threats. Throughout the process, he was shot twice and 3 of his team members were killed.

John was only able to hold on to her wife's bloody scarf, the only remaining belonging of Betty.

I like the concept, the backstory, great stuff!
I love that bad ass rifle!!! The arm armor, gloves...

I'm not a fan of faceless "drones, could be a robot" helmet. I like it's design, for me personally, I'd love to see the character's face.

Not a fan of the acu's... I do this character with a more urban look - urban tigerstripes would be fantastic...

That said, "everyone has an opinion"...lol

GREAT JOB! The figure looks fantastic

Good feedback :) Something that we could look into perhaps in our next figure :)

Could you make the rifle a darker green? The sand colour looks too neat and shiny for me. I do not know the story he comes from but I like the overall look.

Wait, he's from Eugene, OR?!? Really... I've noticed my wise years of experience in this World, that people that hail from that area are usually, extremely good-looking, very intelligent, brilliant actually, successful and get all the ladies... ;)

Fantastic!!! I would change a few designs/uniform choices for personal preference, but I love the look and the idea of this.

It could use a good weathering like the 3A bots and figures, as it looks a bit new, and not like a veteran of a long conflict. Too clean.

If I can find one parted out, I will get pieces for sure.

Cool. Just give us an idea for something that could be...exclusive, perhaps? :p

Personally I don't like figures to be weathered. If I want them weathered I can do it myself but if they are weathered in the factory they just end up looking either dirty or "factory finished" rather than having a scale appearance. The Hot Toys Sandtrooper comes to mind!

In fact, we share the same thought, but our worry is we could do that on the prototype easily, but to ensure the same amount of QC from the factory, it kind of put us off from this idea..at least for now.

While I "loved" this figure when I first saw it, I don't "like" it. ( What the heck does that mean, right ?) . The figure is very cool, I especially appreciate the giant hand cannon. In fact,so much that I grabbed the 3A version it is based on 2 years ago for my skull- headed Colonel Dedmun.
The back story ,while somewhat interesting, is too convoluted and spans an absurd amount of time only to wind up in an extremely familiar place. This is unfortunate because the back story then "demands" a weathered figure, not a custom kitbash, no matter how cool the figure is.
The " bloody " scarf is only, quite obviously, a red Shemagh and not convincing as a bloody keepsake of lost love. In fact, this highlights a particularly frustrating detail I have been following since the initial reveal, the odd grammatical error in the last paragraph of character's story. If it sounds like I'm being too harsh( somebody is getting ready to tell me about English not being the vendor's first language and that my own grammar and punctuation leaves a lot to be desired) keep in mind that this error appeared on display with the figure at a major toy show(something that would get the average person fired from many companies). I am also not trying to be " in the 1/6 figure business". It should have been fixed by now.
This figure has a suggested retail price of $208 (US) but I have been making "this" figure in kitbashed form for many years. With the exception of the head and the minor custom ( meaning superficially important ) touches on the weapons, this figure represents about a $70 investment at MonkeyDepot or Toyanxiety.
Please don't take this harsh criticism as an obnoxious slam ( I'm afraid I can't slip by and call this "constructive", I'm actually finding fault today), but this is the difference between making a figure for fun and asking people to give you money for it. If this were being presented as someone's custom project I would be praising it for it's detail and blending of familiar modern day gear with futuristic touches. However as a retail product, and without any attempt at weathering, it has too many items which were clearly made for the 1/6 military market to consider it anything but a "dressed" figure.
Sincerest apologies for any hurt feelings, but being in business requires more than mass replicating a cool idea.
I wish you the best of luck, but please try to focus more on the details that you are trying to use to set your product apart. Make the figure match the story and, if your price point is actually a reflection of production costs plus mark up,( rather than just a cranked up number) figure out where you are spending too much because it is simply too high for a figure ( style ) ThreeA did better and cheaper for years.
