Don't normally do Modern Action Man, but I thought I'd try and upgrade one, changed his hands for BBI ones, and modified his ankles an feet to bbi too. Repainted the head myself, (Never understood why mam never had a blonde option). Kitted out in all mam kit, except for his belt.

Good work Dal! Cool

I too was wondering why there was no blonde MAM available, I have a few brown haired early MAM and a later one.

There's some nice kit in the MAM range that's useful for vam/AT Joe, especially the vehicles Smile

Yes, great work there, ..nice posing too.
The bloke you used seems to vary between jet black and a darkish brown.
With the MAMs found at markets and charity shops so often the painted hair shows signs of wear and has to be touched up.

P.S. what's your tip for removing MAM's hands?
I have some with coloured "gloves" that I'd really like to replace with natural hands but seeing as I haven't tried to remove the gloves, I'm  very reluctant to start pulling hard.
MAM has very large hands and they will not go through some excellent clothing items that are made for phicen figures or those where the hands are easily pulled off such as the oddly named "World Peace Keepers"....that invariably come with an massive arsenal of deadly weapons.

I have several different blond MAMs. Original paint jobs too, so they must have released a few blonds at some time....and a redhead as well.

Thanks! The easiest way I know of removing mam hands is to submerge the mam's hand and wrist into very hot water (not boiling) this softens the rubber enough to pop them out. I use the same method for replacing them too. Hope it helps cheers

The hands make a huge difference for me.

The figure has that square-jawed Gerry Anderson Supermarionation vibe.

Very cool.
