Crazy Figure 1:12 Scale Chalk Leader 75th Task Force Ranger FigurePaul
There’s a new company on the 1:12 scale action figure scene, Crazy Figure, and they seem to be setting their sights on manufacturing a line-up of action figures centered around the army/ task force space. The first release from Crazy Figure is the 1:12 scale figure dubbed Chalk Leader 75th Task Force Ranger from the military operation, Operation Gothic Serpent – an operation conducted with the primary mission of capturing warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. The operation took place in Somalia, Africa from August to October 1993 and was supervised by the Joint Special Operations Command. As part of the operation, the soldiers were deployed in a mission to arrest two of Aidid’s lieutenants. The result of that mission – executed under the command of Gothic Serpent – became known as the Battle of Mogadishu, or “The Battle of the Black Sea” to those who fought in it.
One of the key events is the downing of a UH-60 Black Hawk and the subsequent attempt to rescue its crew. As a result of the Black Hawk Down, the raid quickly became the most intensive close combat in the military history of the United States since the Vietnam War. The events of the raid were later renamed the Battle of Mogadishu by international media, as opposed to the operation’s name of Gothic Serpent. Mark Bowden wrote a book about it and it was then adapted into a film directed by Ridley Scott and released in 2001, aptly named BLACK HAWK DOWN.
There are a ton of action figure collectors who have a collection consisting of primarily military based figures and this line-up from Crazy Figure is sure to be a home run with them for a number of reasons:
- Multiple outfits included with the 1st release – different display options is a bonus!
- LOTS of accessories and extras. This is a HUGE plus for collectors who want a good value for their dollar. Accessories can be used with this figure or other 1:12 scale figures in your collection.
- Both the outfit(s) and accessories look to be of a premium quality – time will tell if the production pieces are as good as the photos look.
- 1:12 scale has really taken off more and more lately with the success of popular One:12 Collective line-up from Mezco Toyz so more and more collectors are looking for more options to collect.
