2 steps forward and 1 back with some of these re-issues! I should think he needs that Y Stand with all the metal on his belt and the metal helmet! Is the hammer actually metal too! No wonder he was nicknamed as a "Champion Shelf Diver" at one time! Laughing

Yes you are Very right winch...He is Very Top heavy...he has fallen out of the Y stand a few times....Very true about the reproductions too...I have the talking Shore Patrol set and It too is metal...The White SP radio is terrible with miss shaped hinges...Even his helmet makes him top heavy....Walt

Lovely sets, Walter Smile

Seeing your Red Box divers helmet/belt up close brought back happy memories for me.. I had a 'Red Box Diver' back in the 1960's, i used to take it in the bathtub with me to do battle with evil sea monsters Very Happy

I also see you've got an 'Ultra Corps' figure in your turnout, it's the beardy, they're cool figures and worth collecting Smile

Moray eels get very bad press. I blame the movies...specially "The Deep".

Whilst accompanying a garbage boat out from a Fijian resort I had the pleasure of slipping overboard with a snorkel and face mask amongst lots of fish, and a couple of reef sharks, to hand feed a magnificent large yellow and black moray eel the boys said lived there. He left his lair in the coral and twined around my arm and body then took morsels of food right from my fingers with incredible delicacy. They do have a very impressive set of long pointed teeth! (They have given that model one a set of chompers like a horse! Morays have long bluish-white needles! Even a couple in the roof of their mouth.)  I never received so much as a scratch. He seemed incredibly polite!
The boys were amazed and could only say "He must really like you. He hasn't come right out for anyone else before."
