Brace Yourself: An American Sniper Action Figure Is Coming

Black Ops Toys isn’t shying from the controversy surrounding real-life American Sniper Chris Kyle.

Between being called the “most lethal sniper in US military history” and a “coward” by Michael Moore, the late Chris Kyle left one hell of a legacy. While it’s hard to beat being immortalized on the silver screen by Clint Eastwood in 2014’s American Sniper, there’s certain significance to getting your own action figure.

Black Ops Toys, in collaboration with Mission Specific Equipment (MSE), recently announced the release of a Chris Kyle action figure, to be made available for preorder soon. Black Ops Toys, which retails premium military action war toys, was granted special permission by the Kyle family and claims to be honoring the fallen Navy SEAL sniper.

Though Chris Kyle has become a contentious figure in popular culture, there is sure to be demand for the toy given that American Sniper was the highest-grossing film at the 2014 box office and was nominated for six Academy Awards, winning one. Black Ops Toys will reveal more information shortly.
