These are the 5 LAPD figures I have put together. When I first got interested in 1/6 figures one of the first figures I saw at the shop was the DiD driver LAPD SWAT point man, and I was in awe at the detail and volume of parts included with the figure. Of course I ended up buying one and it eventually spawned this set. The pics here were taken at different times so the details on some of the figures may change from picture to picture.
DiD "Driver" figure. I was really taken aback by the shear volume of equipment that comes with this figure. I have not added any equipment to this figure that did not come with it, and in fact some of the pieces are still in the box!! The figure itself has a semi seamless body with the top half being seamless. It is quite flexible, and relatively easy to pose. This is the one with the Ryan Gosling head sculpt, but that is not something I took too much notice of and you will see that in some of the pics he is now wearing the included respirator so it could be anyone under there.
I will let the pics talk for themselves.
The next figure I added was the DiD "Denver" SWAT figure. Same body and basic uniform as the "Driver" figure, but a lot of different equipment with this one.
I then Wanted to do a K9 team as I already had the German Sheppherd dog seen here. I got hold of a Colin Farrell figure from the movie SWAT. The uniform was a reasonable match to the DiD figures and I found and added equipment to it to represent my take on a K9 handler in a tactical situation. I also had the dogs harness, and added some other items again my take on an LAPD police dog. I also adapted the patches from a "Driver" figure to make the K9 patches seen on these 2 figures I also added additional patches from Patches Of Pride and One Sixth King. The dog had some minor re-painting and detailing done to it, and he is named Axel after a real LAPD K9.
Next I acquired another DiD Driver figure at a more than reasonable price, and went about producing a 3rd SWAT figure. The Head sculpt was changed, and various additional equipment sourced including the shotgun and breaching tools. I made up a custom "Avery" name tape for this one too as having 2 Drivers didn't work for me.
So here are some pics of these guys together.
And then I saw the Toy City LAPD patrolman uniform set.
I thought this would be another nice addition to my LAPD collection, so I found a body and head sculpt and started to put this together.
The basic uniform is very good but maybe a little tight on more muscled torsos. The belt is great, but some of the pouches are not so good and when I referenced LAPD belt kit it was missing some items often found. Because of this what you see in the pics is a mix of the Toy City equipment and additional pieces i sourced elsewhere. The Beretta included is pretty basic so I swapped this for a better looking piece, and it also comes with a left handed holster, which is ok, but I wanted this right handed and so I adapted the Toy City one accordingly. I also added the radio seen here as I wanted one with the separate microphone.
All 5 are now displayed together.
I hope you like what I have done with these figures, and as always any comments and observations are welcomed.
