Blimey... I'd be happy with just one para. You've got a whole squadron lol!

And very cool they are too.

Limiting to just Action Man (Joe and Modern are another ballgame), it's difficult since most of them came a long way to get here. If I had to pick my favorite(s) of the bunch, there are a few.

The first Action Man that I received was this blonde EE; that I've outfitted as an Artillery Spotter.

When I think Action Man sets, the para is the first thing that I think of. Getting all the pieces took time; making it worth it. The missus also thinks that this fellow looks like me!

In terms of a presence, this fellow seems to set the tone:

I've got one of those box sets somewhere, it's a good set. At the start it wasn't one of my favourites, but over time it grew on me.. It's good to be wizzed down the smooth pathways in summer.

They are certainly high-class figures with superb detail, (just look at the boots alone!) ....but damn I'm still monumentally envious of your HUGE tank!

The sheer magnificence of stuff like this is probably the reason I shy away from doing any "military" scenes.
I freely admit I'm no expert at all on uniform authenticity, ranks and insignia etc. and thus the potential for making serious boo-boos is huge.

Wonderful collection gibri and I covet each and every one of such superb figures.
They make my own MAMs look like the toys they were/are.

Is that right hand figure in the second photo meant to represent a youngish John Wayne?

Thanks very much Barry. As they say, the more you learn the more you realize you don't know the half of it. The potential
for errors is about 100%. In my case anyway... Laughing

Actually the last three guys are supposed to represent real historical personages, Patton, Maj. Gen. John Shirley Wood and
Lieut. Col. Creighton Williams Abrams (of Abrams Tank fame)

It's a little hard to try and find a head that resembles the figure you're trying to make, but kinda fun too and also
sort of rewarding. They usually end up looking pretty good, in my own mind, at least.
