VERY cool looking figure. The face and hair looks quite good I like the whole feel (except maybe the boom box!)

There are many possibilites here. For the "closed fist" left hand for the boom box, one can even craft a strap and attach that to the fist as if he's holding an ammo pouch or RPG or machette (not included, of course).

The face is skinny too...adds character because where most 1/35 faces are "pumpkin-shaped," this militiaman's is "melon shaped" = cool!

I'm hoping Historicus Forma still accepts unsolicited reviews...

I find this figure fascinating, I've been back to the review several times to look.
I suppose with a change of head he could be anywhere although the wide collar would restrict him to the seventies if in a European setting :-)
I'll have to find one this side of the pond as the shipping for a single figure from the USA is almost the price of another figure
