Americans love their lists. We are always putting some topic into a list of top ten, top one hundred etc. In keeping with that tradition I decided to create my own list. This list compiles the top ten McFarlane Military figures based on several contributing factors.
The three primary contributing factors for placement on this list are: the retail selling price today, difficulty in finding these figures for purchase and the perceived popularity of these specific figures. I am assuming that retail selling price and difficulty finding them for sale equal figure popularity.
Number one on my list is the Series 7 Air Force Halo Jumper which was released in 2008 and I have personally witnessed this figure being purchased for $205 which is an astounding price for any action figure, let alone a 6 inch scale action figure that was only released two years ago.
Number two is the Series 4 Army Special Forces Operator Caucasian version. I have witnessed this figure being purchased for $110.99. Once again, that is a significant selling price for a 6 inch scale action figure.
Number three on my list is the Series 3 Air Force K9 Handler. I am speaking primarily of the Caucasian version. However, both the Caucasian and African American version are really difficult to find but the selling price of the Caucasian version is typically higher.
Number four on my list is the Redeployed Series 2 Army Paratrooper. This figure is only available in the Caucasian version and is a great representation of our US Army Airborne Rangers.
Number five on my list is the Second Tour of Duty Army Special Forces Sniper. This is another McFarlane toy soldier that is only available in the Caucasian version.
Number six on my list is the Redeployed Series 2 Army Special Forces Sniper Observer.
Number seven on my list is the Series 4 Navy Seal Sniper. This figure is available in both a Caucasian and African American version.
Number eight on my list is the Series 4 Navy Field Medic. This figure is available in a Caucasian and Asian American version.
Number nine on my list is the Series 3 Army Ranger Sniper. This figure is available in a Caucasian and African American version.
Number ten on my list is the Series 7 Army Special Forces Night Operations. This figure is another great McFarlane Toys representation of our United States special forces. This toy soldier could easily represent not just Army but Navy, Air Force and Marines.
McFarlane military toys are highly detailed statuesque action figures that even the most discriminating collector will find appealing.
Until next time, take care of yourselves and others.
