Here are some scenes from the battle front in Afghanistan — PFC Rupert Valero, stationed in Kandahar, has been creating his own action figures out of found materials. Valero, a long-time collector of six-inch action figures, has been creating his own new action figures as well as upgrading his off-the-shelf figures.
Private First Class Rupert Valero is currently stationed at Khandahar, Afghanistan. In his spare time, he's become something of a toymaker, building "action figure" type toys with recycled bottle caps or whatever found materials he stumbles upon. Some of the figures he makes are truly gorgeous and out there.
