I like Parcel figures but this one just isn't convincing; I've never seen photos of Vietnamese with legs that thick, let alone these arms.

i have to agree, this figure just doesn't work for me either, way to bulky looking and the colour of clothing doesn't look very convincing either and it doesn't feel right the way he is "totting" that BAR.

I've shot a BAR and they're hefty. I wouldn't be holding it like that for long. If he had the weight resting on his web belt the other side would be sagging. Plus the BAR looks a little short.
