Our take on soldiers will -- at least in the beginning -- focus on modern American troops from the four major service branches. We will put out series of soldiers in accurate uniforms and equipment, and sculpted in real, life-based action poses.
These are not generic, static "army men"; they're fully detailed hyper-realistic representations of American soldiers in authentic uniforms and equipment, sculpted in standard McFarlane scale (6 to 7 inches). We may someday branch out into other countries and time periods, but for now we're concentrating on the current four main branches of the U.S. Military.
