I picked up a Talking AT Commander from an antique store about a year ago. He was missing an arm and had a bad case of laryngitis. One of the local club members replaced the arm and got him talking again!
How I found him:

He now wears a mix of gear. The parka, rope and binocs are 40th anniv; the trousers are Classic Collection, boots are OJI, rifle is Gearbox; and scarf is barbie!

I was going to take some pics from the recent snow, but chickened out due to the frigid temps. Here are a few shots from last years snow.

Actually caught a few flakes in this shot:

It's hard to see because they're white, but he's wearing snowshoes.

That outfit looks very nice, a good mix!  Very Happy 

You're so lucky to get a bit of snow, all we've had for 3 months is non stop rain! Sad

I recently picked up a few items from a local antique mall.

I'm slowly but surely giving my vintage guys vintage or repro boots.

I just got one of the new Cotswold knit caps, and thought my Talking commander could use it to keep his noggin warm!

The scale of the fabric used for the wooly hat looks 1/6, perfect! The hat also contrasts nicely with the blue anorak Cool

The essential explorers rope rounds the figure off nicely  cheers
