Cancelled - DAMTOYS 78065 NSWDG In Afghanistan Shanghai Wonder Festival 2019 Exclusive

This was cancelled a few hours after it was announced, apparently DAM thought the 10 month production lead time would be not in keeping in spirit with an expo figure. If you wanted to know what their current production lead time is, now you know. I’m not sure if these are all the photos, just what I could cobble together.

This head has already been used by Dam for another figure …

As for the figure, no regret for me for this cancellation (they will surely emerge a similar version in a few weeks) … but I would like to hear about the release of the figure DMS007 Operation Red Sea Gunner, which was announced at the beginning of June … does anyone have any information?

Yeah, this one is a recycled product thorugh and through. Very poor attempt indeed!

I’d like to see what pictures they used as reference because the helmet-mounted earphones (commtacs?) aren’t common within NSW, nor is the heavy belt kit. To me this essentially looks like the K9 DEVGRU with a JPC thrown on, weird belt kit with perhaps 1 new pouch, and Altama OTB shoes. If this was all in MC it’d look closer to SF or Rangers - NSWDG seems to (at least in reference pics) go for a slicker, more minimalist look.

This one feels more like one of their “reaction” figures where they’ve seen other brands do some pieces of gear and want to produce a better version, ie the NJPC and Defcon Vans SK8 shoes. It feels a bit thrown together.

Makes sense. It definitely does

Info about 10 months is wrong . it’s a translation thing. In Chinese 十月 directly translates to 10 months , but it means October.

The figure was cancelled as they realized it could only be released in October according to their production schedule, as WF2019 is happening now , 8 to 9 June , they decided to cancel it.

A couple of things to think about ;

  1. Companies have put exclusive figures on order at exhibitions and delivered them a few months after, soldier story has done it with the UK SF figure , dam has done it as well in the past , so what changed this time ?
  2. Announcing the figure and then retracting it a few hours later , deleting all photos of it, I don’t know about you guys, but I would of made sure everything is in order before announcing anything

I think so too business wise. They most likely got too greedy, start throwing out figures and statues like there is no tomorrow and lost track, probably confusing themselves.
Their figure release schedule is just mad at the moment. SOBR, RAID, Combat Girls, Dinosaurs, Red Sea etc.

No harm done in my opinion collector wise as this is a dead stock bash.

Do you think this will be released at a later date? I understand it is a lot of reused stuff, but it’s stuff I don’t have. This would be a great figure set in my collection!

No information is available at this point regarding a conversion to a regular release.
Assume it is cancelled until otherwise

All anyone can do is speculate at this point. They have spent some money developing prototypes for some of the new parts here so conceivably some of those may be reused. I wouldn’t mind seeing the NJPC and LEAF jacket as their versions tend to be a bit more refined. You can kitbash a reasonably close approximation of this figure with parts from Easy Simple, SuperMCToys, ZY, etc.

That’s good news they could have gotten it done by October as they are currently averaging around 8 months to get products out. If they could cut that in half for future products potentially and expedite release it would help as that is currently the one advantage they lack even it it is better than Soldier Story’s turn around time.

Thanks for the replies.
Yep; I’ll sit tight. My bashes never quite match up to the quality of a complete set, so it’s worth it to me to wait and see.
Mileage can vary sort of thing I suppose.
