Anyone seen the McFarlane Military "toy" series. Looks like, as is the case with probably all of the McFarlance Toys, they'd be better as "decorative statues" than played with by kids.

Series 1
Redeployed
2nd Tour of Duty

These figures are amazingly detailed.

Do these action figures have articulated joints or are they stautes?

Indeed. Those are not only kick-ass but all of the clothing is so detailed and actually made of "cloth".

The McFarlane "figures" have very limited articulation and are generally intended for display purposes. Definitely not for small children play.

Wear a pair over your knee's for awhile in 100+ degree heat and you'll see why the model has them there.

Not just the heat... they really chaffe after a while and since most are elastic they are kind of restrictive. It's just an easy way o get them out of the way until you need them. Easier than taking them off and since they are elastic they generally stay in place around your boots without working themselves completely off.

Why, hasn't he bee posting? I think he might have been temp-locked, but I figured that was over and done with by now. Stick to the topic though... start a new thread for the sarge questions... if there isn't already one running in the team forum.

Got himself put in timeout, for misbehaving... It's all over the pit, don't even bother looking for a link, you can't miss it.

After looking at those dolls, er, um, action figures.
I realize that Sarge's doolfu is weak.

Sight line and/or eye relief? I can't really make out scope type/configuration from the pic actually. Just a guess.

The left foot should be flat and facing left for optimum stability.

Those things stay on your knees for about 5 minutes in action. After that they become ankle warmers. I used to love em for jumps but after a while it was a pita to keep them adjusted and they were uncomfortable sometimes.

VERY cool...unfortunatley, between all my 21st Century Toys and other WWII tanks and planes in various scales, and 1/18 scale 60s muscle cars, I've got nowhere to display anything.
Link Posted: 9/8/2005 10:02:49 AM EDT
I think Sarge's collection is fine. His action figures are not stationary, so they can be posed according to what he desires in the movies. Plus they have interchangable parts and all accessories.
The ones you have shown are great collector's items, but to make pics and movies, you need ones that can be posed. Here's just a few....

I have a bunch of toys sitting in my attic for the day when I have a basement den/bar at which time I'll be using toys as part of my decoratiing theme. The military figures would look pretty cool around the kegerator.
