This happened with the Dragon 1/6th scale "Saving Private Ryan" figures. Of course, due to copywrite laws, they weren't called Saving Private Ryan figures, and the names were changed slightly. Most of the head sculpts are right on the money though. Most of them.
Anyway, I eyed these for years and always hesitated. I'll get them someday. They sat on online store inventories forever. Then one day they were gone. No worries. I'll head over to Ebay. Non-existent!!!! All of them except Mickey.
So it was only a few months ago that someone had the entire set of six for sale together on Ebay. We negotiated the Buy It Now price. I think I got them at a fair price. Glad to finally have this set. Same thing happened with the Sideshow "Platoon" figures.
Cappy - Private Caparzo - Vin Diesel
Captain Mill - Captain John Miller - Tom Hanks
Jim - Private James Ryan - Matt Damon
This is one headsculpt that doesn't look right. Maybe Matt has the most lawyers.
Danny - Private Daniel Jackson - Barry Pepper
Mickey - SSG Mike Horvath - Tom Sizemore
Richie - Private Reiban - Edward Burns
