this is my U.S Marine from the classic movie. He is ready to storm the palace, a classic scenr from the movie is when Marine n Navy personel double time thru town to get to the palace. U.S Marines from Marine Barracks Rota,Spain were part of the company of Marines as well as Spanish soldiers. For the uniform i used the SOTW WWII Marine blouse. hasbro trousers, the web belt and suspenders is from BGT, THE winchester navy lee rifle was made by intense2002.

"Hostiles to the left !"

That is still one of the most beautifully choreographed sequences done. I'm sitting here looking at your Marine, with a big grin on my face. John Milius would no doubt love this.

Yeah, loved the movie, great job.
I wish DiD would do this figure that also has the elements that they wore at the end.
When that small unit showed up led by Steve Kenaly to secure the release of Pedicaris and then rescued Connery.
They had those rough rider hats and shotguns.
Those were some tough hombres.
