Motto: "Words are nothing. How you fight, that's everything."
SCHRAGE is an exchange soldier from the NVA, or Nationale Volksarmee (National People's Army). He is a true infantryman that is more comfortable on the battlefield than anywhere else. He's a man of actions rather than words. His OKTOBER GUARD teammates know him for his monosyllabic comments and protracted silences, but more so for his reliability, determination, and courage.
Fancy speeches mean little when you're chin-deep in a firefight and outnumbered by the enemy three to one. That's exactly when SCHRAGE appears at your side to fight until the very last round of ammo is gone. He's got a natural feel for battle tactics and can be relied on to figure a fast, clean way to get the job done.
Schrage (v2) was available both boxed and bagged.
The reissued box set came with a different certificate of authenticity, and the tacks on the pin are set higher. In addition, the reissued Schrage figures were missing the red star on the left arm.
Schrage (version 2) was created using the torso, waist, upper arms, and upper legs of Dusty (v12) (2008), the lower arms of Snake Eyes (v46) (2009), the lower legs and feet of Red Star (v2) (2008), and a new head based upon the head from Shrage (2005).
