What's happening with the 50th. line? There was the initial release then... Did any of the promised uniforms appear? Also, the frogman suit looks to be made of something other than latex/rubber. What is it and does it look good, please?

OMG the 50th Action Man uni doesn't fit a vam that’s shocking. The designers of the uniforms didn’t measure or look back at the original size of vam uniforms gggrrrrr.

Alex why would they? They have made a shit figure with crappy T-rex arms! If it were not for those arms I'd be on board with it! Its a good idea badly executed! Even my 3 year old said "dad why are the arms rubbish?"

I have to admit that I'm intrigued by some of the reaction on certain other sites.
Are these people drunk ? On drugs ? Or is it some kind of mass hypnotism ? ...honestly I just dont understand the mad dash to pay actual money for these t rex figures.

Ok so the headsculpt is very good, but that's it. And when they are in the bargain bin or a charity shop in a few months for a quid I will get some to transfer the head to a proper body, but pay £15 or £20 for what is essentially a head with an unusable body and uniform !?!?....utter madness affraid

Unfortunately, Congress doesn't hold much sway in the UK... Evil or Very Mad

I have as much chance understanding their business model as I do of understanding Derrida's philosophy...

You might think if they were interested in selling any they might have let Amazon sell them to US purchasers...

scratch scratch scratch
