A nice concise review Alan, unfortunately I find the figure bland.

Morning Darren,

Yes, not an action type, but for a rest scene or as a prisoner he fits the bill, at least for me.

As with any figure, placement will make him fit or not. On his own he looks quite lonesome but you are correct he may not appeal to eveyone, but that's down to personal choice and need.

Hey Al,
I kinda like this guy, he would look right at home in a field mess kitchen diorama or any situation requiring a shirt sleeve appearance.
Not everyone's cup of tea but still something different.
Thanks for the review.
Cheers

He reminds me of some of those football player pictures from the early 1900's.

Hi John,

Similar thinking, tanker or infantryman, any non action scene, it's an off duty pose, maybe thinking about home, looking out from behine barbed wire, pretty generic so useful.

Hi Darren,

Maybe he was, a lot of them joined up .

I think he will work well with these two, a couple of Alpha figures, they had some earth to sit on bit I'm not sure what I did with it!!
