The Alamo Scouts were some pretty tough hombres. They and the US-Canadian First Special Service Force are the parent organizations to the Army Green Berets. The Gearbox uniforms and gear are very nice. I used the Alamo Scout camo uniform on my Foreign Legion paras.

Back in the early 1990's Cotswold Collectibles played a huge part in establishing the hobby, first in G.I. Joe then in their own Elite Brigade line. These Gearbox figures compete with the big boys but still have a feel of the classic G.I. Joe figure about them. I picked up a few to dress up some Timeless G.I. Joe's as Waffen SS.

Cotswold still sells Gearbox items; both boxed figures and loose parts. They were blowing the figures out at a local store called "Tuesday Morning" some years back. One of my buddies bought out most of the stores in the region!
