PostSubject: Seirra1 Custom DAVID JAMES ENGLAND goal keeper 1990s   Sun Apr 07, 2013 4:37 pm

Hi guys this is one of my latest customs in a series that I'm going to call the autograph series, hence the white cut out in the grass display stand. As you may know, David James, the ex-England goal keeper is a very keen Action Man collector. I've seen him many times at the old Cheshunt fairs and I've been keeping him up to speed on Action Man days 1 & 2. He couldn't make the first as it was a Saturday and it doesn't look as though he will make this one as he has just signed as a player/coach in Iceland. Just sent these off to David for his approval and hopefully get the base signed asap. This is all VAM and scrap.
OK guys, a few more ideas for celebrities in any walk of life, arts, entertainment, sport, etc. I've got a few in mind but they've got to be distinctive. EG all snooker players look the same unless you added the big Dennis Taylor glasses. See where I'm coming from? So, if you're a football fan, you'll remember David's plaited hair from the 90's.

Wow! Didn't see this one coming!!!! I would guess he's going to be incredibly flattered, and 'Over the moon!' !!!!

If he's a keen collector, he's going to know straightaway that this isn't just a generic goalkeeper custom, but a great personal tribute, and the cornrow hairstyle is instantly recognizable to any footy fan.


Just needs the signature!! Congratulations, superb work!

Thanks guys. the two Ronnies mmmmmmmmmmmm? For our American friends, they were a UK comedy double act. I'm part way through the Abbey Road album cover, proving a bit difficult keeping it all VAM. But I'll get there in the end, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Two Ronnies???? I love them to Ade but didn't Vaughan say it's a signature set? Might be difficult getting Ronnie Barkers signature unless you have greater powers than your letting on PMSL how about Brucie complete with tash and chin?

By the way Vaughan I hate soccer with a passion yet that was instantly recognisable and a stunning example of your work.

I must be very tired as my mind is pretty sick. You could do a goaly series using Atomic mans dodgy atomic eye for Gordon Banks, Sorry!! :-) and a BP EE with broken neck elastic for that, I think German Goaly playing in England who broke his neck and carried on playing. He must have been well hard so a muscle body would be great Sorry again, just that my meds aren't working so well this evening

Forge their signatures Mark. After all , it is supposed to be 66-84 so I reckon Vaughan may get away with it. lol

Lovely bash, I've watched 'Jamo' play for Liverpool many times, if your bash is fully accurate he will never be able to hold that ball! Very Happy

I was talking to the 'toy' guy at Vectis a while ago at the Bolton show and he mentioned David James was selling all his AM collection, by all accounts the full collection is stunning.
