Stormtroopers of Death (aka S.O.D.) is a satirical thrash metal band featuring Anthrax members Scott Ian and Charlie Benante, ex-Anthrax bassist Dan Lilker, and M.O.D.’s Billy Milano. They focused on intentionally over the top and offensive lyrics that brought them both notoriety and controversy. Though they never intended for anyone to take the lyrics seriously. The idea came as Scott Ian would sketch out a comic-like villain of a skull in an army helmet known as Sargent D. The sketches would feature slogans, and eventually lyrics that would become the basis for the bands songs, with Sgt. D becoming the bands mascot.
NECA is releasing an action figure of Sargent D, based on artwork from the bands first album “Speak English or Die”. The 8″ scale clothed figure includes a removable helmet and a rifle. Our friends at NECA have sent over the figure for review. After the jump, check out my thoughts and photo gallery.
