Bataan sailor

Am I seeing a new Dragon sailor figure from the defense of Bataan?

http://www.thetoyfederation.com/xcar...cat=292&page=2


Or is this an old figure I haven't seen before?

It's not necessarily an old figure, but it has been discussed at length here.

Here is a link to the previous thread. Its a good read.

Sorry guys, I'm not heavy into figures, usually only as crew on vehcles.

But I just saw this sailor and thought he was kind of neat, and pre-ordered him.

With the machine gunner and this sailor, what's next for Dragon, how about an Army or Navy guy maning an American 20mm AA gun or a .50 cal water cooled gun on the massive AA mount ? Is that too cool or what? :-o

Would be nice to see an American AA piece.

And I never even mentioned one of my all time favorite guns.

The 40mm Bofors gun on the wheeled carriage as featured in "1941" with Dan Aykroyd as Sgt. Frank Tree, explaining the firing of the gun and Ned Beaty as Ward Douglas firing the gun at the Nazi/Japanese sub while looking for Horrywood.

Boy, what Dragon could do with that gun :-o It fits right in with any year during WW2, in all threaters. Mounted ln the ground, in all kinds of vehicles and ships and is used today in US Air Force gun ships.

The Hasbro quad 40mm is nice (I have two) but a quad mount is for ships only Not too many 1/6 ships around the size of a destroyer....

You've got a Quad 40mm from Hasbro? Mine is only a twin 40mm. In fact, I only ever saw the twin 40mm released from Hasbro. Must have missed the Quad 40mm release.
