thanks for that mate - does the backstory come from a GI J comic / book? or was there an official figure/outfit that you taken your inspiration from?

He was in the comics, and he was also one of the small plastic GI Joe figures from when i was younger, think he was also in the GI Joe movie that came out recently.

I went with several references, used pictures of the original figure and anything else i could fine on internet.

He was also in the Action Force over here - but story of him changed slightly to fit UK;

Nice 'Snowjob' bash Damo. He was one of my favourites from the 3 3/4 range I got him with the big snowcat vehicle and I may still have the figure with the few I have left in loft. I may be tempted to get them out and see if I can bash one of them. I did a crappy 'Barbecue' that I posted on OSAM but it wasn't up to much.

I remember Spiffy Stu - he is such an inspired creation! 'If he gets shot down you can make him a parachute' LOLOL! That is fantastic - top drawer. As others have intimated, this is Hasbro level!!!! cheers cheers cheers


I'm not familiar with the Action Force/smaller gauge figures at all, but this 12'' version of Snowjob is a terrific tribute.

Looking forward to more! cheers

Custom boxes.... sewing machine affraid

Lovely custom figures; handmade balaclava - WOW

I did collect Action Force for a while back in the day and loved the background stories created for the various characters and I think that the AF product line offers some great scope for AM & other 12" figure bashes.

Thanks guys Smile

I never saw your barbecue figure Ross you'll have to post him again!! Yeah get them out and post them in the offtopic and give some people inspiration for kitbashes. I keep wanting to do snakeeyes, an easy but good one would be shipwrecked all you'd need is the navvy set with a beardie and get a 1/6 parrot Laughing

Thanks Again Jim, i do love Spiffy Stu - my brother still owes me some pictures - when i gave him to my brother we had a parachuting session at my grandads - thrown up in the air, thrown from bedroom windows... and getting caught on overhead cables lol! - just like being a kid again, had my boys and me and my brothers all playing VAM

Cheers Barney, yes i picked up my computer skills from my dad and sewing skills from my mum and with my nans sewing machine that i got handed down after she died - i've been making stuff since. Glad you like. And i agree the Action Force figures would be some great kitbashes. I remember having a couple when i was a kid the DPM Camo soldier and the diver with yellow and blue diving gear - fantastic!!!

My latest addition to the ranks, to join my paratroopers.

A little bit of background on the Filthy Thirteen, this was the name given to the Demolition Section of the Headquarters Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division

Most people have seen the famous photo from Stars and Stripes, showing two members of the 101st with Indian-style mohawks and applying war paint to one another. The inspiration for this came from Jake McNiece, who was part Native-American

http://actionmanmobileops.forumotion.co.uk/t468-damian-s-kitbashes-wip

Gave him an extra shoulder pocket, and custom screaming eagle decal and added an entrenching tool as they had on their jump gear. Keep thinking of adding a life vest and some other bits, but.... Well here he is (for the moment)

101st Airborne Division
