Custom Action Figures: US ARMY Special Forces - ODA
The Special Forces A-Team is comprised of a fully contained 12 man unit capable of operating anywhere on the globe for any length of time. One scenario for which they train is urban warfare. This can be anything from close quarters battle to hostage rescue. Armed with exhaustive training and the latest combat technology the select few chosen are truly America's elite.

Special Forces Photograph seen on the Cover of Newsweek Real Special Forces Training
Above are two images of the actual Special Forces soldiers training. The photo on the left was seen often in the media and was displayed on the cover of Newsweek magazine. I based this action figure on all of the operators collectively. Another inspiration was Dragon Models figure Clay Ramsey, also based on the same photographs but left much to be desired. This was my take on what that figure could have been. The most important feature from these photos is the helmet with the unique custom camouflage.
Special Forces A Team
For this figure I experimented with making fabric gloves. The material I used was not that flexible and it took a very long time to finally get a pair that did not fall apart. The helmet was made from two or three existing helmets and given that distinct texture. I modified other parts as well such as giving the boots wide laces. One of my favorite parts of this figure is the Toy Soldier Eagle TAC V10 vest.
