Hey guys, welcome back to another review. We’re taking a look at a US Dragon figure today. He is a USMC squad gunner and his name is Jack Hanlon. So let’s go ahead and look at its box. He’s from Iwo Jima, 1945, and this is one of their later figures, so the detail is really good on him. Overall, he’s a great figure, one that I’ve been eyeing for a little while, so there is a really awesome picture of him. I love how he’s holding the Japanese sword. On the side of the box there’s another picture of him. Very nice pose. And here’s the back. This one was released in 2010 Awesome looking box.
Let me go ahead and pull out the figure. Here he is, all geared up. It looks really awesome. As I said, I have been trying to get a hold of him for a little while. He definitely is a hard one to find as far as the USMC figures go. It really doesn’t show up a lot. But I really like him. He’s pretty simple, but he does look really great, so happy to get him. All right, as you can see, he’s holding his BAR, and he poses really well with it. There he is aiming. It looks awesome. It doesn’t come with a bi-pod, which is okay. I actually prefer it without the bi-pod. All right, let’s get a closeup of the rifle here. Great detailing on it. As always, we’ve got nice handlebar up top, and of course the clip can come out. You can pull that back. The strap is okay. Definitely pretty flimsy. You got to glue these pegs in, otherwise they just continually fall out, which is really annoying. So that’s okay, but overall still a really awesome rifle. I’ve always loved these a lot.
All right, really love this one’s helmet. He’s got the beachside camo cover on. I think it looks great. Little tricky to get that onto the helmet, to get it all tucked in. It’s always a bit of a challenge, but it looks really awesome once you get it on there, and I do have the strap tied behind his helmet. The strap on this one is really long for whatever reason, so I thought it looked better behind his home at like that. Here is his head sculp, which is pretty good looking. Nice detailing on it. Very realistic, especially the hair and overall he looks good.
So the figure does of course come with the Japanese Katana with the scabbard, and as far as I know, there are only three figures who come with a Japanese sword. Allen and Andy Carlson are the other two that I have. I don’t think there are any others. But this is really, really nice. I love how they added this. Yeah, it looks great. He doesn’t hold it a tremendously well, but still you can get some cool pictures with this. Anyway, you get the point. Really awesome. Now you can see he’s got the captured Japanese flag. I just had that tucked under his shirt, but this is a really nice extra accessory. Sorry, I’m not sure why the lighting got bad like that, but anyway. A nice accessory and they also give you another one here. This one has a tiger on it. So really, really cool there.
As for other equipment, up front, he’s got all these pouches here for his clips for the bar, and then he’s got a first aid pouch hanging off there. He’s got his knife there with the sheath. And in the back, there’s really not much in the backs of for his canteen. These are little flimsy. They definitely don’t want to stay in these little holes, so it can be a little annoying. But overall it looks good once you get everything on there. Like I said, he’s pretty simplistic, doesn’t come with a lot of equipment. But yeah, it looks great though. And there’s his uniform of course, USMC uniform. He’s got a t-shirt underneath. And then he’s got the leggings, which you’ve got to put on yourself, and then his boots.
All right. I think that covers everything. This is a really, really nice figure and one that I do recommend picking up if you can find him. I did have to pay a pretty high amount for him because I’ve just been really wanting this one and I thought I’d just grab him while I saw him. But yeah, super nice. Hope you guys enjoyed this review and thanks so much for watching. I’ll see you in the next video.
