Platoon the movie

Platoon is a 1986 American war film written and directed by Oliver Stone, starringFTom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Sheen, Keith David, Kevin Dillon, John C. McGinley, Forest Whitaker, and Johnny Depp.

In 1967, U.S. Army volunteer Chris Taylor arrives in South Vietnam and is assigned to an infantry platoon of the 25th Infantry Division near the Cambodian border. The platoon is officially led by the young and inexperienced LieutenantWolfe, but in reality the soldiers defer to two of his older and more experienced subordinates: the hardened and cynical Staff Sergeant Robert “Bob” Barnes, and the more idealistic Sergeant Elias.

Here is my take of Staff Sergeant Robert “Bob” Barnes and Sergeant Elias. Both figures are a set from the Wargames illustrated magazine .
