The ever popular, if somewhat silly pygmy gorilla might fit... scratch

I was also the sort of crate an archaeologist might use to ship relics or that a mad scientist might receive some equipment in... Twisted Evil

Intriguing indeed! Were has Jake ended up?
Noticed a schwimmwagen box in the storage shots.
Yours, or a sneaky way to include other photos?
Great instalment!

"Hat" and "Helmet!" lol! Your Orange Guys are awesome!

When I saw the first storage room pic, I was gonna say "that's no storage room" because I could still see the floor and a (admittedly meandering) access path. But the second and third pics made up for it!
Razz

Contractor Guy is a pretty cool character. Love the way he's slouching there with his magazine and his cig.

lol! lol!

Your AT commander looks a pretty laid back guy and.'Jake and Cliff can do no wrong!' He certainly knows his onions too!

'Private contractor, budget cuts' lol! The bane of the modern world!


..and poor old Willie! I can feel his pain. I remember when I sent Joe and Hank's heads off for reflocking. I laid awake at night worrying the little box they were in would get lost at the post office amongst millions of bigger boxes! Rolling Eyes

Oh, that's funny stuff!

Nice references for those of us who grew up on American TV! Boxcar Willie! Arnold the Pig!

Is that really where Playing Mantis was based? Sad!

I really like the Dr. Weiss outfit! Debonaire and diabolical! Very "Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark" ish.

Surreal! Dr Weis always reminds me of Hanibal Lector at the end of Silence of the Lambs when he's on the phone to Starling and tells her he's 'Having an old friend for dinner' affraid

I'm glad to see 'Boxie' Willie has toughened up. It must have been his time in Florida with Joe and Hank but now he's commiting acts of domestic terrorism?? Why?? Were Praying Mantis' Captain Action sets that bad?? lol! lol!

Thanks Steve, could be something to do with Playing Mantis promising us Johnny Quest figures and not delivering them...

I think your Hannibal Lecter comparison really captures the spirit of Dr. Weis. Twisted Evil

Yes, that really is the address of the former Playing Mantis. Round2 (if they even still exist) is way across town in the Industrial Park, perhaps an even less desirable location.

affraid Round 2 was HQ'd in your home town too??

Never mind Praying Mantis and Johnny Quest, after bringing out a quality Captain Action repop those jokers at Round 2 folded just after getting the license to do all the DC characters! Mad  Oh the pain!

Imagine how cool their Batman and Superman would have been! I'd have probably even bought their Aquaman! lol! lol!

Where is Willie now? Cos I think he has another target to hit 'way across town!' Twisted Evil

Both companies were the brain child of a fellow named Tom Lowe who at one time or another owned both of them. Seems more interested in models, die cast and slot cars than figures. I can't find that they have any figures available now and no mention of Capt. Action or Dr. Evil on the site now. Not even sure they are still in business.

Considering the quality of the items and the apparent popularity in the 1/6th community, I think it odd that they have made no mention of them on the site.

Yes, I think Boxcar should undertake another mission... Perhaps he could enlist the help of Hat and Helmet.

I can’t believe all the people for Willie to meet first is Dr Weis gggrrrr. Doctor Weis getting Willie to do his dirty work for him by getting Willie to blow up a Oriental Market, thinking that it was still the toy company Playing Mantis that’s just shocking. Doctor Weis got Willie to do his dirty work so he didn’t have to get his pristeen white suit dirty. I’m just so glad that Willie flipped Doctor Weis out of his wooden chair but if it was me I would do more than just flip him out of his wooden chair. I just loved that Willie got on the pig and rode it out. Let’s hope Willie gets to AT HQ safe and sound.

Thank you very much for your comments, Alex!

Please bear in mind that the so called Oriental Market was actually the headquarters of a Chinese Spy Ring. I'm sure Willie was very careful that no innocent bystanders were harmed. Very Happy
