My 21st Century Toys Ultimate Soldier British SAS "Scud Hunter".

I hardly played with this when I was little
Just like my dad got me into Action Men, he told my brothers and I all about the SAS.

I often think that. Lile a few years ago I passed up a MIB Bradley M3.. Biggest. Regret. EVER.

I did recently collect another KettenKrad, beige, still in the box. The box isn't mint though.

I was going to paint it white, but I've not really got any winter Germans. So I'm thinking I might sell it as I have another beige one tucked away in the basement.

Ah yes, ...the regret of what I should have bought!
I know that feeling all too well!
Or you go back only to find it's been sold in the meantime.

Nice figure there RSD.
21st Century did some excellent stuff.

Great looking figure!

Good ol' 21C/TUS! They really raised the bar and gave Hasbro some worthy competition. They also created a fan base that I think helped Dragon when they came along a couple years later.

but, the Bradley! I think a lot of us are still kicking ourselves for passing on that one.

The 21C vehicles were and still are great!

Aside from the Bradley, I still am kicking myself for not pulling the trigger when Toys R Us blew-out the Stuart tank for $50. and when they blew-out the little bird helicopters for $15, I was ready and got two of them. They routinely sell for $60-90 on ebay last I checked.

Thanks for posting the figure and for the memories.

cheers cheers cheers

The 1/6 scale Little Bird helicopters? The big ones? When I looked on eBay yesterday, the least expensive offering I saw was $350 USD!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/21st-Century-Toys-Ultimate-Soldier-AH-6-Little-Bird-Helicopter-1-6-1-6-Scale-H6/224271556832

Asking price for the 1:18 scale version ranges between $100 USD and $200 USD.

Thanks everyone! I feel like after I dig through everything and find some other old 21C stuff I will add to this. The SAS guy was my favourite though.

I got my Police Little Bird from a hobby shop for about 40 dollars some years ago. I really think people in the hobby took some of that 21st Century stuff for granted back in the day. I certainly know I did. Looking back and thinking about everything that was readily available..

Now you look at modern military figures and you're in for like 200 plus.

Collectors took many of the 1/6 brands for granted, especially more budget friendly lines like 21st and SOTW. Power Team/Chad Valley filled that niche for a time; but now they’re being carried by specialty stores or websites.

Well Cotswold Colletibles has a few of these brands in stock. The 21st Century stuff is usually old stock, mostly from private collections. 
But I believe that the Power Team stuff is all old models but new products?
Still 120usd for the Hummer is daylight robbery when they were about 30 back in the day.

Power team is available through Cotswold, but you used to be able to buy them for $10-15 in a store; while now you have to pay Cotswold a higher price for them, plus shipping.

He looks really cool and has a really good head sculpt and clothing. Your Dad knows his stuff Smile I never got into 21C figures due to reasons but I always thought they were really good. That is so cool your in this hobby but yeah, I know what you mean, when I got into 1/6 scale figures back in 2001 and was so excited about Sideshow I found their figures to be cheap back then but as the years went on the prices jumped so high from many companies where most is at an unaffordable stage. I find this situation to be really pathetic Rolling Eyes

By the way Sarah, a bit off topic. I like your new avatar. You new pic of yourself and is that your "mini-Me" and have you featured her in a topic of her own in the past or plan to in the near future?

I’m really liking the look of British SAS "Scud Hunter". I’m really liking his head sculpt.

Thanks guys! I think I have the boots and suit of a second one somewhere. I loved these 21C offerings. One company that I wish would come back from the dead.
