New Hot Toys 1/6th PMC, CIA and Modern Weapons Collection III

In the upcoming 1/6th military action figures from Hot Toys, which could possibly be part of my humble 1/6th collection, are the PMC OPERATOR - PRIVATE
MILITARY CONTRACTOR 07 ver.
and THE CIA COMMANDOS - GROUP
OF OPERATIONS IN IRAQ (GOI)
. Also coming is the Modern Firearms Collections III, which I have an M4A1 from series II.

PMC OPERATOR - PRIVATE
MILITARY CONTRACTOR 07 ver.

The PMC Operator has got a nicely-crafted headsculpt with realistic beard details. I love that AKM. However, I possibly would get it from the upcoming "Modern Firearms Collection III: PMC SELECTION" (see below). The MICH headset is rather cool as well. Most importantly, the weathered demin jean is too realistic.



THE CIA COMMANDOS - GROUP

One damn good reason beckoning me to get this is the realistic SLR, which I can possibly custom it to be a "Nikon"! Another reason is the handsome looking face, which I can't put a name to. It is obvious that the recent HT releases are moving towards combining urban with desert camouflage outfits, which are too cool!



Modern Firearms Collection III: PMC SELECTION
This series marked as "PMC Selection", I believe to be intended for the Private Military Contractor. Even a fool can tell from the "PMC Operator" headsculpt printed on the box.
As usual, there are nine weapons:
1. AKM w/ Adjustable Amplifier Flash Hider
2. AKM w/ Drum Mag
3. AKM w/ Folding Grip
4. M4 w/ ARFX-E Stock
5. M4 w/ Duostock
6. M14 SOCOM II
7 .M14 SOCOM w/ Silencer
8. DRAGUNOR SVD
9. M40 w/ Silencer
I would possibly pass on the M4 if not for the interesting butt stocks (ARFX-E stock and Duostock), but I risk having too many M4s. I intend to acquire this series as a set, since I WANT the AKMs and do not have any M40, M14 and Dragunor sniper rifles, however, I do not require the M14 SOCOM II. If anyone would like to sub it from me, I would be glad!

The PMC guy reminds me of the guy on the cover of Michael Smith's Killer Elite book.
