I like the weapon myself, it's very reminiscent of the way the comic book artists of Battle would of drawn a machine gun.. but that's just my opinion.

Most of my :shadow:'s are armed with bazooka's, it my be the 100% correct way to have every thing complete, but it does look a bit impractical to have troops only carrying heavy weapons..Ak-47's look far more realistic, by the way were they bazooka's in the "traditional" rocket firing sense?..I always imagined them to be some sort of laser or sonic weapon.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

My original Shadows have Marauder guns and my later lbcs have the original bazookas. I wasn't keen on the gun held by the 2010 Shadow but I think the attachable magazine is a good touch.

:muton: The weapon new red shadow has is ok, think I will add a AK-47 too mine. I sadly like the red "man purse". The gun of choice for me is the rifle that came with the "Extreme Conditions: Desert Assault Squad" crimson guard, brown and black with no handle but they seem to only fit the 25th Anniversary style best.

Superb!
i wasn't sure if they would totally screw this up or not but they've done a pretty good job, very close to the original, just a couple of things tho, the eyes are a bit iffy and i think the bag would be better black but that's just my opinion, i guess there would of been certain parts that people wouldn't like no matter what they did, so all in all a great collectors piece!

that black bit protruding from the bag is that a spare magazine cartridge does anybody know?

Same accessories came with Beach Head V11 (minus the pistol)

one magazine will clip into the rifle, and the spare goes in the bag, I agree that the black bag would have looked better.

For me a slightly slimmer weapon would suit the Shadow better, maybe an M3, in a deeper black too (can't tell if it's grey or black at the moment on this screen).

The removable magazine is good - I think that a lot of other recent ROC accessories and vehicles have been quite good too as potential retro-making material.

I'll say it again as nobody commented, I think the red bag will look good on the Black Major.
