Hi I'm new here but I just wanted to get some feedback on my interpretation of the division 2 urban sniper as I found a few things... not wrong but I just wanted to tweet them.

Obviously he is supposed to be a high speed low drag urban marksman so the huge TAC 50 he carried didn't make sense to me.
He was also lacking a flare gun wich is crucial in game.

I also added some reality to the fantasy by giving him a headset that is attached to his specialist Division radio.

Maybe I overthought it a bit lol.

So first pic is how he comes out the box(after some building).

Is this the Ubicollectible Brian Johnson figure?

It looks pretty decent. Not as good as the VTS Darkzone figures, but the quality looks pretty good.
Hi there.
Yeah its the Phoenix Shield version rather than the brian johnson resin build(wich I also have).
The quality is pretty good in my noob opinion(I just started all this), I have found the Phoenix Shield versions going at VERY reasonable prices on CeX. Some unused even if opened once.
Thanks, Ben.

It's an interesting figure for sure. It has a nice look to it. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the colour choices for the figure itself, which is why I have held off from buying one, but it's one I am watching if I can find a decent deal on so I can add to my Division series line up. But if it's a main figure from the game, they go with the colour options chosen for the game, so that's the way it goes. I could always swap out pieces to make it more to my preferred colour choices.

Exactly mine has about £100 of add-ons to make him fit how I see a Division agent. Gotta love the modularity.

I'm glad to see some in-hand photos of Brian Johnson, since I've been playing a lot of The Division 2 lately and am curious about the figure. I like your replacement rifle, since you can pick up something very similar in the game

Just looking at a photo of the stock figure's accessories, I can see you've added not just the rifle, flare gun and headset, but a shemagh, four flashbangs (is that what they are?), a little silver cylinder (what is that?), and a coiled rope (as an aside, I keep finding rope in the game, but I don't remember ever using it). I can imagine that all those little things can add up, but they add detail and kind of 'fill out' Brian Johnson.

Thanks, yeah I added items as i saw fit and as I thought functional like the headset.
The silver cylinder is a flare round for the flaregun.
Yeah I gave him a M14EBR as its more lightweight and easier to run around D.C. with I was thinking at the time.

It's all about our vision of how they should look I think?

Maybe some purists would disagree.

He also(as stock) comes with the TAC50 sniper rifle and a crossbow with 3 bolts.

Thanks for clarifying what the silver cylinder was. I was surprised when you typed that there was £100 worth of stuff on Brian, so I was looking for what else had been added.

I've added pieces to a stock figure myself, soo I can understand why someone might want to do it. Like I typed, your extra pieces add detail, and if I was to get a Brian Johnson, I'd be tempted to add a different weapon.

Oh the £100 was a rough estimate probably a little shy of all that.
But it's a ongoing process.
Like I just ordered him a green bomber jacket/U.S. flight jacket as I think it would be a improvement over the stock shirt.
I have plans to paint the flare gun orange as that's the colour scheme in the second Division(I bought the flaregun from the agent from the first game where it wasn't really a usable item).

And so it goes on until I'm happy with his look.
Guess that's the hobby part of it all :)

Just wondering wich looks better the first set of pics or the latest with the bomber jacket? I'm thinking it might be too bulky and is stopping his gear sitting right? Thanks people for the kind words people.

I'd want to see more photos from different angles to be sure, but I think the bomber jacket and load-bearing vest are 'too much' together and the combination is bulking out Brian Johnson's look. The jacket and backpack should be ok.
