1/6th Navy Seal CQB by VERY HOT

I have earlier reviewed about the Austrian special ops EKO-COBRA by Medicom Toys. This is a review of another special ops unit from the United States of America, NAVY SEAL. This 1/6th action figure box set by Very Hot, has got very good quality materials and realistic weapons, comparable to those of Hot Toys. This version of the NAVY SEAL is of the Close Quarters Battle (CQB) configuration. The CQB operates mainly in urban warfare. Here I decided to dress up BBI G3.5.


United States NAVY Sea, Air and Land (SEAL) are the special operations unit of the U.S. Navy. The highly trained NAVY SEALs operate in all terrains and all grueling conditions. They are trained to perform unconventional warfare, counter-terroism operations, national defense, domestic special operations and covert operations. Whenever there tasks that cannot be solved, the 'Frogmen' will be there!

Never Quit,
Take responsibility for your actions and the actions of your teammates,

A simple sleek looking box set with all the parts and weapons to make up the NAVY SEAL CQB, except the body. In the gallery, I will walk you through via pictures, of the step-by-step assembly of BBI G3.5 body, from nude to complete.

The clothes and accessories are very realistic with real pockets and zippers, straps and buckles. Though the clothes are rather huge when dressed, but when all the accessories are fitted, the 'Frogman' sure looks tough!

The CQB comes with an M4A1 R.I.S with torchlight and scope, a shotgun and a hand pistol with torchlight. All weapons come with realistic ammunition/magazines.


Other accessories include elbow & knee paddings, crowbar, communication device, vest with pouches, harness with pistol sheath, boots with real laces, gloves, straw for water bag, clips and cable ties, all of which are very realistic.

Thanks 12-inch bro!
I took 50% of your advice about the fitting of gloves.
I cut the fingers of the pistol-grip hand, but I did not trim any metarial. I do like the look of barehands too and it is quite a waste to trim it too much such that it can only be gloved.
I might look into getting gloved hands, like that of my COBRA.

any comments on the belt? I have placed it over the shirt. Or should I be running it through the belt loops of the trousers?

by the way, one of the draw string was not ran through the cuff of the trousers, so it hangs loosely like a strand of stray c*ck hair.

the clip that fits into the buckle of the gas mash pouch, snapped. I had to pluck it off and replace with glue. it stays hidden when buckled up and fits snugly.
