PostSubject: My Geyper Guys   Thu Jan 16, 2014 5:02 am

I'm not a big Geyper Man collector and I've not been into the recent reissues so much as to spend a lot of money on the boxed figures being released.  However, I  have managed to put my own versions of these figures using a mixture of original Geyper pieces in my spares box as well as Geyper reissued pieces and VAM and 40th pieces.  

First is the Adventurer with the red sweater...



Sweater and pants are vintage Geyper, belt, holster and pistol are Geyper reissues, ammo belts and machine gun are VAM and boots are GI Joe 40th . All modelled on a 40th Action Man beardy...



Next the Adventurer with the yellow sweater...

Sweater and pants are vintage Geyper, machete and pouch, belt, shoulder holster, pistol and boots are Geyper reissues. All modelled on a Wal Mart GI JOe Adventurer...

[/URL]

This is the Geyper basic figure that comes in a range of coloured jumpsuits...

[/URL]

Jumpsuit and signal flasher are vintage Geyper, shoulder holster, pistol and boots are Geyper reissues. All modelled on a 40th AM beardy...

[/URL]

Next up was the Tank Soldier, one that I was tempted to buy until  I realised I had practically everything needed in my spares box to put together my own version...  



Jumpsuit is a Geyper original, holster, pistol an dboots are Geyper reissues.  Beret, grenades and scarf are AM 40th and belt, ammo pouches and headphones are VAM pieces.

[/URL]

I also manged to get hold of a repro box for this guy...



This figure was Geyper's attempt to do a 2nd Royal Tank Regiment (Combat Dress) soldier.  The main details where they fell short were in the colour of the jumpsuit which should have been black instead of dark blue and the scarf which should have been yellow...



Here is a kitbash I did based on the above illustration...



My Geyper guys assembled...



...and boxed...



I'm sure there will be more to follow.  Smile

Not really. Geyper tried to represent the Spanish tanker of that age. In fact, it's the only figure (apart of the infamous SuperMan  Laughing ) of their own "design" in the entire GM line

1rtr colour is red 2rtr's colour is saffron or yellow and  the gaiters should be black if you look at the gyper man figure he does wear the British Army Royal tank regiment badge ,which is a ww1 tank (mother)surrounded by laurel leaves with the words fear naught , the regimental colours of all battalions of the tank regiment are brown red and green ,through the mud through the blood to the green fields beyond nice kitbash by the way you are correct though that the overalls and belt are black

If that's the case, then why does the beret on the Geyper figure have the Royal Tank Regiment insignia?

 Very Happy  Very Happy  That's an easy one! Because it would had cost money in a new mold, and Geyper people NEVER imagined that a kid would recognize a particular military insignia. They sure didn't! For them it was simply a "Tanker insignia"
