The Battle of Baghdad, also known as the Fall of Baghdad, was a military invasion of Baghdad that took place in early April 2003, as part of the invasion of Iraq.

Three weeks into the invasion of Iraq, Coalition Forces Land Component Command elements, led by the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry Division and the United States Marine Corps' 1st Marine Division, moved into Baghdad. The United States declared victory on April 14, and President George W. Bush gave his Mission Accomplished Speech on May 1st.

Baghdad suffered serious damage to its civilian infrastructure, economy, and cultural inheritance from the fighting, as well as looting and arson. During the invasion, the Al-Yarmouk Hospital in south Baghdad saw a steady rate of about 100 new patients an hour.

Several thousand Iraqi soldiers were killed in the battle, and a very small number of coalition forces. After the fall of Baghdad, Coalition forces entered the city of Kirkuk on April 10, 2003 and Tikrit on April 15, 2003.

This figure, which honors the brave soldiers who served in that conflict and inspired by the HBO mini-series "Generation Kill", features a custom painted headsculpt by Skiman's Workshop. This figure is built on a Hot Toys True Type body and features custom weathered quality uniform and gear from Hot Toys and ACE plus a sand-textured stand by Sideshow Collectibles.

Note: As with all Punch Custom figures, this is a one-of-a-kind figure.
