PostSubject: GAJ Republican Guard   Sun Oct 06, 2013 7:40 pm

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...



The spur on the right boot needs some Krazy Glue...



The chin strap will need to be shortened and reglued...





Black haired G.I. Joe -- All my VAM PH are brown haired...



Matted Horse Hair Mane...



Close up of the horse hair mane after being washed, conditioned and combed out...



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...

Wow. That is stunning Doug. I'm a bit sleep deprived at the moment and my brain is on overload. Is this an40th uniform? I would live one of these. :-)

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.
