I thought it was time I updated my collection thread. Here I am going to explain where old figures went and what came in to the collection (people that know me, know that I do enjoy a good trade  Very Happy ).
So here we go,

My Adventurers, as this one was.

Blonde Adventurer,





This figure then went to live in Canada, with mrbond (len) and is now enjoying the open countryside  Very Happy 

So I brought a broken bp and re built him, he also went for a re flock at flocktastic(thanks Tony  Very Happy ). This one picked up his name one night in the 'Ammo Arms',

Brace

This guy eventually became Nate Daniels, again flocked by Flocktastic, here are some of his looks he has been given so far,





He now looks like this, WWII loading Craft Crewman

My childhood Atomic Man, one of Jake's oldest buddies  cheers  This is one of the figures that will never leave my collection. When I found him in a box all I had left was his balding head!  Rolling Eyes , not put off by this, I decided to re build him  Very Happy . To begin with his head was placed on a BP body, He was sent to be re flocked by Flocktastic to have a custom colour, I opted for light brown, in a 1.5mm flock.





I did a deal for a white jumper adventurer outfit from beatlefan (Richard) thanks mate  cheers . So I thought it was time to re dress my custom Atomic man. I thought he looked really cool and at the time did not have any plans on changing him again.




Changed his look again, These were done after I got him an original Atomic Man body again after probably 30 years !  Shocked  (thanks Danny  Very Happy )






And how he looks now

This was the next Atomic Man I got from Geert (thanks mate  Very Happy ), he was in great condition and had a fab flock.






I traded this Atomic Man to a chap named Matthew on FB for some vintage Joe's, we were both happy  Very Happy . The problem being then, I didn't have a original Atomic again. On a trip with zulu1 to Acme Toys, I picked up another  cheers . His over all condition is 10, he even has his eye piece now. All I need now is a jumpsuit with his badge.




some new shots,

Desert Fighter

Heavily inspired by Pauley's superb bash on this set, I still have all the parts to this uniform, it is now in a bag awaiting a new BP to put it on. This figure is another of my childhood survivors  cheers 





then I tracked down his Thompson (thanks Ade  cheers )




Then I did a trade with skj and got him the uniform I always wanted for him when I was a kid, '

My latest arrival (Outfit anyway) is a 40th LRDG. I am very pleased with it, I have been after one ever since getting back into collecting. It was an excellent trade and one I was very happy with  cheers '

Jungle Explorer

This was my first attempt with my Jungle guy, the figure who now live's in Wales with my good mate, taff was re flocked by Flocktastic  cheers 





After the figure had gone off to Wales to start his new life and join another collection, I tried the now completed outfit (many thanks to Tally & Danny for helping me finish it  Very Happy ) on a Hybrid figure, this to me, just didn't seem right for the look,






I then traded a figure with reddog1 for this fuzzy





So the jungle outfit was then put on this bearded guy, and now I am happy  cheers
