Bill Rizer is blue commando who is the Player 1 in the video game. Comparing Lance Bean, the paint work on the face sculpt is better.
You cannot get lots of dynamic poses from the figure as its overall articulation is average.
The figure has no issue to stand on its own as it has fairly tight joints.
Bill carries an ungraded spread gun which shoots five fireballs in five directions.
I have attached the set of fireballs to the transparent stand to imitate the spread effects of fireballs. It's very fun!!
Now to imitate the rapid effects of fireballs from Lance's upgraded machine gun.
Together with Lance, Bill can wipe out the enemy and completes the mission easily.
Let's enjoy the full walk-through of CONTRA in Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) by PEG.

The packaging graphic and design really give me the retro feel and brings me back to my childhood memories.
Flip the box cover is a simple clear window which reveals the contents within.
There are two clear plastic trays to house the figures and accessories.
Lance Bean is the red commando who is also Player 2 in the video game.
Unfortunately, the bullet belt is not painted. Otherwise, it will look better with the figure.
Lance puts his combat knife in the sheath which attaches to left side of the belt.
Besides combat knife, Lance carries his handgun which fits very well in the holster.
With upgraded machine gun, Lance is ready to fight in the battlefield.
The handgun fits in the right hand of the figure but not the combat knife.
The above is a flying capsule with Falcon-shaped symbol to power up the players' weapons. Next review is Bill Rizer.
