Soldier Story 1st Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment

Don't have much to say about this one.  Overall it's a great figure, but there are few oddities that I decided to address.  One, the guy sports a goatee--something a real ranger wouldn't do.  Second, the metal alice harness and rabbit extractor is nice, but a bit too heavy and ultimately not something I really wanted to use on the figure.

So, away went the Edward Norton "American History X" head, and in came the Soldier Story marine in Tarawa to take its place.

Also left behind was the extractor set and here is the result:

Oops, I forgot to attach the drop down holster, lol.

I have to say, even with molded boots, he looks ready to go.

Just like the Toys City Marksman Overwatch dude, the Soldier Story Ranger helmet features little bungies to secure the NVG.
