Sideshow Collectibles was the first company to release 12" figures based on the three most notable characters from
Platoon. Their initial lineup in 2002 included Pvt. Chris Taylor (in the lead role immortalized by the then, as yet very young Charlie Sheen), Sgt. Elias (in the guise of incredibly gifted character actor Willem DaFoe) and Sgt. Barnes (masterfully portrayed by Tom Berenger).
Naturally, all of Sideshow's Platoon offerings have long since been sold out, but you can
see an extremely nice gallery of what they did have available (in far too limited quantities for a far too limited time,
I might add) at Cool Toy Review.
The Sideshow bunch even later added several more supporting character members of the
Platoon cast, including Pvt. King (actor and narrator David Keith), Sgt. O-Neill (John C. McGinley of Scrubs fame), Rhah (Francesco Quinn, son of the legendary Anthony Quinn) and of course, Specialist Lerner (played by an unassuming chap that you may have heard tell of, by the name of Johnny Depp).
