For the first time in the world of one-sixth scale action figures, a figure is available with its real-life story presented in a book. This is the pinnacle of bbi elite force WWII action figure collecting - one of the finest figures ever issued by the top producer in this field.
From the 82nd Airborne Division s famous 505th PIR, it s Col. Ben VanderVoort, as he looked on June 16th, 1944, at St. Sauveur-le-Vicomte, Normandy. rnFor this very special 60th anniversary of D-day series, bbi has teamed with noted airborne historian and author, Michel DeTrez, to ensure the accuracy of this figure, which TRULY has it all! Start with the painstakingly reproduced head of Col. VanderVoort, and then move on to the exquisite detail of the uniform and equipment. - Paratrooper helmet with silver Lt. Colonel's oak leaf on the front, helmet net with swatch of camouflaged parachute underneath, reinforced M-42 jump jacket with 82nd shoulder patch and armflag, reinforced M-42 jump trousers, GI combat raincoat, paratrooper jump boots, M-1936 pistol belt, canteen with cover, M-3 fighting knife with M-6 leather scabbard, M-1911A1 .45 cal. pistol with 3 magazines, leather hip holster with leather tie-down for .45 pistol, M-2 paratrooper switchblade knife, M-1936 combat suspenders, first aid pouch, paratrooper tie-on first aid packet, scarf made from swatch of camouflaged parachute, binoculars in leather case, map of St. Sauveur-le-Vicomte. As mentioned, this is a VERY limited production run, with a total of only 1,000 figures being produced, making this an extremely difficult figure to obtain. It has been specially manufactured by bbi (the official sponsor of the Greatest Generation Memorial Exhibit) for The Way We Were Foundation All net proceeds will be used to finance the Normandy commemoration event. Each figure is individually numbered.
