This is just a minor custom. I took a Bench Press figure and added the ammo belts on him (to make him look a little bit like Rock n' Roll) and gave him an actual US M249 SAW Machine Gun. I never did understand why the original Rock n' Roll had a WWII German machine gun (an MG42).

Original Rock n' Roll has the M60 LMG. 25th ME RnR has the MG3, which was produced in 1966 or so, its basically an upgraded MG42. So it isn't a WWII gun, it just looks like it.
Infact, alot of armies still use it today, mostly as a crew service weapon (mounted on a vehicle).

Rock 'n Roll originally came with an M60/MG3 hybrid.
As mentioned, several countries still use the MG3, quite simply because it works.

I never cared for that figure. Hasbro needs to work on him a little more before I see him as R'n'R

Swapped gear with mine much the same. Over-the-shoulder ammo belt, heavy machine gun, and some big headphones/mic thing from an elite forces guy (figure he needs some ear protection while blasting away) I call him Press N' Roll
