I'm a big fan of the Hasbro licensed Ceremonial sets, but couldn't justify spending big bucks on what is essentially a sideline to my G.I. Joe habit. So when some became available at a reasonable price with the launch of the AM@40 line I was able to get these lovely sets.  But the nicest ceremonial uniform was still languishing down at the bottom of my bucket list.  Right from the first time I laid eyes on the Ceji Arbois Action Joe Republican Guard I wanted one.  But he was going for crazy money.  

Still, we all know how that works, and so I was patient.  Then this --

GAJ Republican Guard

-- came along...

I put in a bid and played tag with a couple of other bidders, but when the clock ran out I was still on top.  I just happen to have an extra 40th cross belt from the Blues and Royals which is the correct piece for this set.  Not sure what else I need to complete it, but I'm pretty happy that I was able to get this set.

The Republican Guard uniform arrived today.  All in all it's pretty good.

The Cross Belt has some minor issues.  He's got a 40th sword and belt...

These are on the way from China for the helmet plume.  I think it will look better than the original.  Not quite sure what I'll use for the small horse hair brush...

Thanks, guys. To answer some questions:

I wish they had made a 40th version! I would buy a couple.

The small black cartouche bag is attached to the cross strap. The cross strap has some issues but displays well.

If there was a repro plume I'd be interested, but once my feathers arrive and I make a more accurate 1/6 plume I will probably change my mind.

I'm leaning toward using a variation of this brush for the horse hair brush that sits up top of the helmet.
