hey there

i had read somewhere, i think it was on this board somewhere, that a Beachhead is in the works. any truth to this rumor? any more info or even pictures/details out there?

my scarlett custom is almost done! wait'll you see her! if anyone out there has a spare duke holster i could buy, i would greatly appreciate it. either the original duke or even the paratrooper on would work. also, a zartan belt would work also. thanks again to carnage717 for looking for those TR goggles for me. If you can;t find them, i'll end up using the ones I have and switch the head to the 2nd one with the black under the eyes. :)

please and thank you

MC also has Dio-style pics in the latest newsletter for the upcoming Beachhead, Leatherneck, & Shockwave figures. I believe that they are part of the Adventure Team line of figs.

Actually, they are part of the new "Combat Squad" assortment, which is designed as a military centric companion line to the more scifi themed Commandos.
Price will be $15 and packaging will be evocative of Sigma Six commandos.

The Adventure team will be the $20 line with animals

Yeah, check out MasterCollector.com's Toy Fair coverage... sadly it isn't Beachhead as I'd expected.

I guess I was wrong. I thought I remembered seeing a Beachhead somewhere. You can see all of the new Sigma 6 figures at Hasbro.com. I like some of them. The new Storm Shadow is excellent.

Yup, that is correct...that figure is NOT Beachhead, but there is a Beachhead still in the works... I'm pretty sure it'll look more "Beachhead" accurate as well, so that's a good thing. :)

According to Master Collector, the figure is "Desert Wolf"
