Toys! Life-Like Action Figures With Miniature Guns

image

Taking a short hiatus from breaking news, new products and and other serious business matters, let’s talk about “toys”. And I am not using quotes around “toys” to mean all the guns and gadget we are all obsessed with, I mean action figures. Except the depictions created by DAMToys aren’t really toys – they are scaled down reproductions of soldiers with their real guns and kit.

The detail in each of the life-like models is amazing. From the web gear, night vision, weapon magazines to chemical lights and spiral notebooks, everything is meticulously hand crafted. Even accessories like a Garmin wrist GPS and unit identification patches are included. Especially impressive are the firearms and accessories included with each figure.

The specifications on this British soldier are listed below.

These “toys” aren’t new: the website says they have been around since at least 2012. But unfortunately I was unable to get ahold of anyone at DAMToys for pricing and availability. For now you’ll just have to picture yourself playing with them in the grass, sand and other backyard war zones like we once did as kids.

UPDATE:

Thanks to poster Craig McMillan who reminds me to check eBay when all else fails. Prices are ranging from $150-$300.

    These are amazing. I especially like the Bruce Willis figurine from Tears of the Sun. They even made him a lefty.

    • IshTheBuddha

      And that Marine Scout Sniper looks like the guy from the “Sniper” movies.

      • Gary Kirk

        Tom berenger

        • Gus Butts

          I miss Tom Berenger and his sick movies such as The Substitute and Major League.

          • Gary Kirk

            Yeah, he kinda fell into obscurity.. Doing mostly B-rated remakes of this and that, and lifetime movie villain roles.. He was good in Hatfields and McCoys though..

            Oh, and another oddball.. Last of the dogmen

          • mazkact

            IMHO His best work was the role of Longstreet in “Gettysburg”.

      • Bill

        Now they need Billy Zane with his Gucciflage.

    • Bill

      Great movie, but I recall some guys complaining that he was wearing the wrong LBE, an old school H harness type, which I guess are now making a comeback with the battle belt.

      • Gus Butts

        That’s okay though because they had suppressed Mk23s.

      • Gary Kirk

        What really bothered me about the movie is their complete lack of use of the multiple M-203 GLs.. Especially during the pinnacle scene. A few HE 40 Mike mikes woulda changed things a bit

  • A Fascist Corgi

    I’ve seen stuff like this in Japan but I couldn’t find anywhere to buy them online.

    • Anonymoose

      If I had some of these I would make them fight my Gundams.

  • Craig MacMillan

    never hard to find on ebay 🙂 check DiD and several other companies while youre at it

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Good stuff. Thanks! I’ll update the post.

      • Craig MacMillan

        1/6th warriors i think its called huge forum on these. Dragon in Dreams use several well known actors heads on their figures too 🙂

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Posted updated. Much appreciated!

  • ZF

    If I recall there are several third-party companies dedicated to making and selling 1/6 guns for these types of figures. At least i think, I only had a small flirt with 1/6 guys a few years back but never blossomed into anything.

    But the 1/6 market is really impressive. The website toyhaven has a nice collection of reviews and pictures with all the different 1/6s. The amount that look, well, “life-like” is rather astonishing.

  • Harry’s Holsters

    Where Costa? LOL

    • Anonymoose

      Pretty sure the Japanese made figmas of him.

      • ProLiberty82

        I bet those rights Costa-lotta-money. OK, I’ll see myself out now…

        • Pete – TFB Writer

          You’ve Made the Internet a better place today. Digital high-five.

    • Gary Kirk

      He’d be one of the cheaper ones.. They wouldn’t have to put joints in his elbows..

  • Major Tom

    And now to have these guys set up to fight Cobra Commander.

  • 劉丁丁

    Asian airsofters taking notes meticulously.

    • ProLiberty82

      BTW, what kind of cargo pants exactly did Di Caprio wear in Blood Diamonds, need to know ASAP.

      • Pete – TFB Writer

        Hahaha! Well done.

      • Gus Butts

        My goodness, this joke transcends through all of the universes I swear.

      • BillC

        Ha. I forgot all about that.

        • ProLiberty82

          MilitaryPhotos.Net vet representin, Royal Mud Marines and Blood Diamond Pants 4 lyfe!

  • ProLiberty82

    GI Joe’s in the 80’s/90’s where cool, but these… wow!

    • Mike

      And Action Man for us Brits

  • Friend of Tibet

    I just want to add that all these miniture guns have moveable parts.

    Pistol have movable slide and magazine can be removed.
    AR can have charging handle and BCG, and mags can be removed. Even for the stock.

    • Anonymoose

      Hope you have a good set of really tiny tweezers.

      • Gary Kirk

        Most of the men that “play” with these are used to manipulating small parts…

        • John

          Talking from personal experience?

  • Rock or Something

    When Iraqi Insurgents are holding your U.S. Soldier action figure hostage, you’ll know who to send in now.

  • Arathar

    I would buy a bunch of them and stand them next to my cartridge collection. … If they would not cost that much.

    (which is understandable with those detail quality!)

  • Henry Reed

    Anyone know which of their “Elite” models is the most up-to-date? The SFOD/CAG guy looks to be around 2004.

  • Bob Jones

    Marine Corps Scout Sniper’s rifle is all manner of wrong.

    • Gary Kirk

      Why do you say that?

  • jono102

    They’ve missed the most commonly worn piece of equipment in the US inventory….

    The Reflective belt

  • Gary Kirk

    Actually, think they should’ve had “Red” to go along with the Bruce Willis from tears of the sun. With his Mk48 and Mk23

  • KestrelBike

    These are cool. That said, for some reason or another, I had to stop by the apartment of some it/tech dude back when I was doing contracting work (business/financial stuff) who weighed about 400lbs. He had SHELVES of these. At least 3 walls had bookshelf/displays full of these figurines (or at least, high quality replicas of a similar nature). It was quite strange.

    I mumbled something like “Cool, man.” so he wouldn’t murder me and eat my liver.

  • skusmc

    The detail on these are amazing. You know what blew me away the most? The dirty/worn woodland cammie bottoms on the scout sniper. It’s a funny thing to get hung up on but that’s exactly what a few months old set of field cammies looks like.

  • Nicholas C

    Back when I used to work for Right Stuff distributors (not the anime place) we imported Dragon Action Figures from Hong Kong. I dealt with a separate line of merchandise but there were co-workers who took 1:6 scale figures very seriously. One lady would take certain figures and re-tailor the clothes because they didn’t look right.
