seems very strange? I will look into it and see what I can find out. Could be we're experiencing a few glitches, earlier for some unknown reason a collection thread locked itself?

I don't understand why that is happening to your account? I have checked all your settings. I will investigate further.

Very strange. I just tried posing it here as a reply to you and it worked, but can't post it elsewhere.

Still not working guys.

Here is the post I'm trying to put up. As I say I can do it as areply but it won't let me create an original thread for it.

While rooting through my spares box, it occurred to me that I had enough kit to put together a second 'Sabotage ' figure.

Not enough to make a second complete set, but enough to dress a companion for my guy with the complete 'Sabotage' kit, to make a two man mission team.

This set originally consisted of equipment and no uniform (apart from the knitted watch cap). The box art showed the soldier dressed in a ribbed green sweater and either a black or blue shirt and pants (quite likely meant to be black, as it is common for artists to use blue to show highlights on black clothing. Just ask Batman. Smile ), none of which existed in either the GI Joe or the Action Man range at the time. .

Problems with posting Img-2548


As a result, two popular approaches to dressing the figure have emerged over the years from collectors. One is to use the basic Action Soldier uniform and the other is to use the French Resistance Fighter sweater, jeans and boots.

I have seen one example kitted out in the Action Sailor shirt and dungarees with a '70s Action Man army sweater, obviously trying to recreate the box art (presumably interpreting the clothing as being blue) , but as this is an Action Soldier set, I think we can rule out naval uniforms.

Initially, I kitted my guy out in the basic Action Soldier uniform, but somehow it never looked right and then I tried the French Resistance approach, but the jeans looked totally wrong.

Eventually I settled on hybrid approach, with the Action Soldier pants and boots, teamed with the French resistance black sweater, which perfectly complimented the black watch cap and fitted in with the night-time / undercover look.

A look which, incidentally, is completely undermined by those bright red binoculars! Whatever possessed Hasbro? Black would be much more discreet).

Problems with posting 002

Seeing as how they are soldiers, I added some Action Soldier kit in the shape of web belts, grenades, canteens and first aid pouches.

Problems with posting 003

I also added a couple of items to the kit - a wire roll (how else are they to attach the detonator to the dynamite?) and a map case and map.

Problems with posting 005

Sometime, I might dye some basic Action Soldier fatigues black and team them with a sweater to recreate the box art, but for now they are appropriately dressed and equipped to blow the crap out of something, methinks! Smile

As you can see works fine here as a reply to an existing thread.

What a cool assortment of gear! The coolest, in fact, right up there with Mummy's Tomb and 8 Ropes of Danger!

I always loved that spotlight-flashlight. And the radio kit with the telegraph key. And... well, and all of it!

Great to see the set boxed, and then all the pieces in use, with your well-selected additions. This is a total flashback to playing GI Joes with my brothers when we were kids!

This is the kind of stuff that makes visiting the AMMO forum a true joy!
