PostSubject: Default First Mission to Spy Island    Sun Jan 05, 2014 1:33 am

The early 1970s Adventure Team "Secret Mission to Spy Island" set always intrigued me. I was too young to see the original release; and the late 1990s "Timeless Collection" version with the camouflage uniform (I believe offered through FAO Schwartz) just didn't appeal to me. The idea that there was a secluded island filled with spies up to no good struck a cord. I've been putting together my own version of an agent that was intrepid enough to accept the assignment. I've backdated the timeframe by 10 years; so about a half-century ago. Who better to tackle the task than CDR James Bond, HMSS? I've tried to outfit his as informally as possible, with a nod to the original Adventure Team figure. I know that American elite forces and intelligence operatives have a great deal of leeway in their equipment and attire; and I'm assuming those of the crown would be given similar leeway.

The parts breakdown for CDR Bond
HS: SST James Bond ("Thunderball" version)
Jacket: Action Man
Pullover: Unknown
Jeans: Power Team
Shoes: 21st
Beretta Pistol: Twisting Toys or DML (In this timeline, I've imagined this as the mission that Bond will barely survive his Beretta's faulty action. After several months in traction, a Walther PPK will be forcibly given to him!)

Enjoy!

Excellent kitmixing  Very Happy 

It's always nice for someone to list the parts used in their kitmixing  Very Happy  You mentioned you used a pair of 'Powerteam' jeans, Are they from the Fisherman set??

I didn't know Power Team made non-military figures! The jeans are from a Green Beret figure that also wore a black t-shirt and sneakers.

Thanks for the intel on the jeans. The 1/6 scale Power Team series also consists of the following: "World Peace Keepers" , "Assault Commando" , "Fire Fighter" , "Sport & Adventure" , " S.W.A.T" , "Tag Team" , "Police" and "Enemy Commando" There's a variety of different figure sets and Vehicles in each of these categories. I'm also a big fan of this series  Very Happy
