I received a package t'other day, and amongst some of the usual suspects was this little beauty.

It looked odd from the photograph, but I thought hey ho (pip and dandy).

He is a SAS Commando, clearly. Everything you would expect, camouflage, straight legged... except.

He is a Second Wave version. Hard (very) plastic, the standard closed hand (like the Dufus Shadow, etc), tight camouflage lines, and a perfect SAS logo on the shoulder, very much of the superior type of paint.
He is undoubtedly a Second Wave version, and a new variant: SAS Commando Type 5

We now have 5 versions, all of which are laid out below.

He is the result of the complete overhaul that happened in Palitoy at the release of the Second Wave, where things became standardised (or as standardised as they could in Palitoy). I don't expect there will be a pocket trousered version of the Second Wave Commando (a hypothetical Type 6).
