Hi guys

Here's some pics of my loose collection thus far. My boxed figures i will add sometime very soon.

I have been collection VAM for only a couple of years now. I come from a vintage star wars collecting background
but after 10+ years of collecting sw have tired of the hobby somewhat for many reasons so harked back to my
true 70's childhood love of action man.

The Kevin King book has been a godsend for me plus the Alan Hall books which i added a year ago. I attended one AM day
in nov 13 which was awesome and picked up a few items. I've had a few bits also from Dan(thecoat) and everything else
has been through ebay.

My early goals(like many probably) were to focus on the Germans and ceremonials and go from there. The most important thing
for me is that it has to be all original(no 40th) which has been very challenging and informative along the way and the outfits must
be in as minty complete condition as i can find them. My main focus is 1970's boxed figures and outfits from that era

Some things to note are that the lance top half on the 17th/21st is 40th i think as it's quite lighter in colour than the bottom half (sold as original),
the combat marine badge on the beret i was told it is repro and the grenadier guards tunic has no label in it which makes me think 40th or Tommy gun,
i'm not too sure atm....anyway, i look to correct these sometime soon plus upgrade a couple of other bits - i think everything else is at it should be.
Would love to hear comments, corrections etc  Smile

My hot wants atm are any boxed figures that i am missing and a nice foreign legion and raf outfit if anyone can help  Smile

Cheers, Lee

Great figures there Lee. I'm looking forward to seeing your boxes too. Think the tunic on your infantry major is incorrect mate. That looks more like the late British Tommy??

Thanks for your reply's guys.

After checking i see what you mean about the major tunic Mark! Gary has the same as mine also - i guess they are quite similar
in some ways and can get mixed up - i'll give Dan a shout - that's where my complete kit came from

Are the trousers the same on the two figures btw?

I think the trousers are the same Lee. I'm not 100% sure though as I don't have the last issue Tommy (with the webbing)

I got a similar uniform from Dal sometime back.

I originally had it on a hybrid, but it is now hidden under this uniform:
