Figure 2 is crouching down as he holds his Shotgun at the ready. He is the only figure out of this set who is not wearing a helmet. His head does have some form of protection in that he wears a fire-retardant Nomex ski-mask. Note that he is wearing anti-glare goggles, not night vision goggles.
Figure 3 is advancing with his Shotgun held in a similar pose to figure 2. Note that all of these figures have a back-up pistol in a holster on their right hips. The pistol will be the .45 Kimber Custom II, standard issue for all LAPD cops.
Figure 4 is firing his Shotgun from the shoulder in an aggressive pose. He is not wearing any form of goggles.
Figure 1 leans forward with his 9mm SMG held at the ready but pointing it skywards. All of these figures wear night vision goggles and all carry the .45 Kimber Custom II Pistol in holsters. He wears a helmet, which is very similar to the PASGT helmets as used by the U.S. Army.
Figure 2 holds his SMG at the shoulder but is not ready to fire it yet. You can see that his head is not pointing in the same direction as the gun's barrel, so he appears to be assessing the situation around him. He is not wearing a helmet.
Figure 3 is clearly in the process of firing his SMG. He's firing from the hip and leaning back to absorb the weapon's recoil. It is a very dramatic pose. He too, is missing his helmet.
Figure 4 is also firing his smg, but this time from the shoulder, as he leans forward and slightly crouches down. Another very dramatic pose.
I gave a number of reasons why I like the West Wind range of SWAT Troopers best of all last time, and nothing has changed since then. If the two sets I reviewed last time were the specialists (commanders and snipers) then these figures are your standard troopers. Once again, the two sets cost a very reasonable £6.00 each.
