First of all, this was probably one of the most anticipated figure in 2017. I still like it and would never give it away, but there are certain flaws that don’t justify the price on this, compared to other MINT figures, considering in addition it doesn’t even include a body and headsculpt.
Thanks to @AdamC who suplied me with this set and who probably had to endure my need for this limited suit most in the progress of me tracking it down. I apologize for that!
The box art is simple and suits both versions.
On the bottom the contact details. Don’t bother anyway, you won’t get any reply.
I will use a DAM 2.0 Bady with SS bendy hands and apply the DAM 78025 PKP gunner headsculpt
This sculpt reminded me on Arnas Fedaravičius from the movie Siberian Education. Worth a watch.
DAM 2.0 Bady
The standard Telnyashka. I tried to put it on a mannequin, however the shirt started making ripping noises, so I stopped.
DAM Russian padded underpants
No more ripping noises when putting the shirt on the body
These are the most user friendly cloth gloves I ever had in hand. Took me only 2min to put them on one hand. However the material feels not so resistant, like felt and the fingers are too long.
The boots slight on smoothly. Even with DAM feet that don’t bend on the toes. No need to work on the strings.
SPOSN suit (BLK)
The functional zippers and velcros
The zipper down the the ankles is not working though
SPOSN suit green, supplied by gsoldiers.ru
This one actually has working zippers at the pant legs.
Otherwise it would be a pain to roll them over the boots.
Reflective armband yellow
These don’t work with velcro. You just hinge/unhinge the straps
This loops on the bottom of the vest are meant for the belt.
All gear attached
Armor. No plate inside. Not sure if this is like the real thing or just lazy.
Drop leg panels
They supply a string, but advertised this
It’s a tight fit. Won’t fall out of the sheath.
I attached the sheath to the drop leg panel, but kept it the string in full length for future use.
It’s hiding perfectly under the holster.
Holster fits very nicely.
Radio pouch and the VX-600 Radio.
Bottle and pouch
Bottle cannot be opened. At least I didn’t dare to pull too hard
Blue bottle is not transparent (got it loose)
However this can open its lid. Probably had a faulty black bottle.
SRVV admin pouch. I stored the standard flashhider inside.
Frag grenade pouch and RGN grenades
AK Mag Pouches
The elastic bands are in perfect length. Not too loose and not too tight
GL Grenades and Pistol Mag Pouches
They advertised a Pistol mag pouch, however included 3 GL Grenade Pouches. The mags don’t fit. I emailed them about it.
Ref pic shows they intended to do differently:
Replacement is the DAM 93004 DELTA FORCE - Sgt.FIRST CLASS -1993 SOMALIA Pistol Mag Pouch.
I cut the elastic bands.
Fits perfectly in here and has the same style as the MCToys set
Didn’t they promise sth else? It’s a sticker now.
Rope. They really expect me to coil it up myself?
This time I actually rappreciated MC’s laziness, because icychap from Youtube helped me learning how to do it. It’s not very difficult, no hidden ties as I thought. But took me some time to figure the perfect lentgh, so I didn’t need to cut off some rope or have the end hanging out.
Altyn helmet without visor. I compare it to the former M-051 helmet which is the same, just without cloth cover. However on the supplied helmet, the micro is fixed into place and can’t be rotated.
When you combine them and add a custom cloth cover you get this. Good find from @Albert_Foong
Goggles camo cover
The frame and the glass are very soft and have the feel of an inflatable mattress.
The goggles attached to the helmet. The goggle strap needs to be opened in order to do this.
See the comparison to the DAM one and you realize the bad quality of this plastic item. I mean they put detail into their pieces, but the plastic is cheap and the execution of the molds is also very bad.
See also my DAM APS/APB review for comparison
I will have a 5th additional grenade to put in the barrel
Safety switch not movable.
The stock is meant to be pushed down completely. It’s possible, but the thin plastic from the cut out part from the stock is fragile, will bend and therefore also turn white, like cheap bent plastic. 2nd GL on the way.
To open the barrel, I pressed it a bit downwards and then pushed forward, otherwise it might break the mechanism due to a small resistance.
Single VGM-93 grenade
Thanks to @davinator65 I can show you this opening for loading up to 4 grenades into your GL.
From below with the flap and the barrel opened
This 1:6 model somehow only takes two. One in the barrel and 1 to reload, where 3 were supposed to fit, when having a look at the 1:1.
I marked the grenade in the barrel with a circle.
AK-74M. The M actually stands for modernized.
Field stripped it accidently by trying to slide on the rail mount, which revealed this to me. The green handguard came off too, but I didn’t dare anymore. The rail mount doesn’t even have a rail so it holds basically by friction, which means it’s super tight. Due to that I broke a part of the rail and had to glue it back on.
Therefore I also didn’t remove it for the review anymore.
Charging handle doesn’t slide properly
Flip up sight too loose.
Rail mount. Later I managed to push it on further. Here it sits too far back.
The muzzle and silencer. Both sit appropriately tight.
Zenit grip with light. It was impossible to slide on the rifle, so I had to take off some rubber and make it more loose.
“Zenitka - 2P Klesh” smudged wording
You can slide off the grip
M2 Red Dot
The rubber covers hold perfectly on the lense/scope. You can see that the rail on both ends is a bit bent and thin. Cheap! The right end I broke therefore
Mags. Primary one is the brown.
Cheaply painted bullets. Color is all over the place.
Sling is not attached yet
All gear attached
The sling attached
For the front loop, I would suggest removing the barrel first. The hook from the sling is quite rigid and hard to bend. Therefore I placed it with the opening touching the loop and held it there with one hand. Then applied pressure with my empty hand’s index finger on the hook and slid it on.
This is actually the same rifle as the M-051.
Only the barrel from the M-046. Well saved some money on tooling.
Being finished on the individual parts I see certain analogies to DID. They are quite good in doing cloth accessories. However having a look at their plastic parts, they are quite bad/cheap in quality/material and execution, although it clearly has some decent detail.
In the end every gripe can be forgiven, because it’s a great set. It even excels the DAM Alfa for me. Although it’s like 60-70% recycled stuff from older figures. The only thing that can’t be fixed is the non-existing pistol mag pouch!
To fit the vest I needed to untie these straps. It’s still a very tight fit
In order to close the zipper I inserted a pin. This always makes me worry the zipper might not be able to withstand the tension and breaks.
In the end I chose the original helmet. The Altyn with visor was too boring and I didn’t like it on this figure. I could have also swapped the visor to the other helmet, but I prefer the goggles as well.
With the VANT shield. Review for the shield down below.
Jeff, a retailer from a Malaysian figure store, probably had the last loose M-046 helmet with attachable radio cable on earth in his store and sent it to me. sixscale supplied the extra M-069A.
I switched the cover for the radio port
The helmet cover makes the space between visor and helmet so small, it’s hard to close it all the way
Having done all that I have to admit I still prefer the original visorless helmet, so I kept the surplus helmets as loose parts.
