And if something has a "scale," you know it's a quality reproduction.
Currently, he's leaning against a mobile anti-aircraft vehicle (from a war his grandfather probably fought in, rather than contemporary to his own equipment: I haven't bought an M1A1 yet for this infantry group). This is interesting, because he's posed to be running, not leaning. But it's either that or deal with him looking gut-shot instead of active.
And really, who wants a figurine of a First Marine Division soldier that looks like he's gut shot and lying on the ground? It's not like I have a Corpsman to pose next to him.
This is a minor issue, really, but one that bothers me for some reason. I could glue him down, or find some other creative way of securing him, but what I really want is for him to stand on his own.
It's odd, and it's childish, but hey: I may grow older, but I don't expect to ever grow up.
