Rob started a great topic over on uamhq, about whether you ever gave your Action Man a name?.

With that said, here is AMMO's take on the thread. Please read the dossier below, and help build a complete profile of your Action Man Forces. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Old and new characters alike welcome cheers





If like me, I always found that each one sort of developed their own character, and so needed a name Very Happy . You guys now that I have my CH5 (childhood five) but, there are other survivors of my childhood, but these guys where always back up for the main five. Each one nas their own name, and most ended up in my SAS squad. A few of he others went off for reflocks. Now I will introduce them to you guys, as well as some new additions who have also developed their own names.

Jake - Commander of BAMHQ.

First brand new figure I ever owned as a kid. A talking Commander.







Smiley Joe. (Originally a cheap K/O figure)

Humble beginnings,



After his new 64 Joe body and reflock!





Every team needs a crazy guy! and S.J fits the bill nicely Very Happy

Tom Stone






Pepe - Got him when I was a kid, all my mates wanted to use him when we played Action Man! now re-bodied with a modern Geyper body.




Goldie - Originally an Atomic Man, after a series of nasty accidents he now has a vintage 6 Joe body.




Here some of the lesser known childhood survivors, most have been reflocked and repaired.

Luke



Lewis



Blake



Murph



Brace Anderson



These guys and I shared many adventurers in the summer holidays in the back garden! from the battle of the rose bushes to the battles of retaking the stairs, helping my friends action men on their campaigns against the evil fiends that arose against them!. together they battled the Hulk!, zargon and his space pirates, Mego Jaws, the germans and others who turned up! Along with that, they raced down hills in races in their trusted Cherilea Jeep! and parachuted from the bedroom window and out of trees! Its a wonder these guys survived!
Having done this thread, It has reminded me of my childhood pal, Paul. He also named his vam, he has a blonde EE named Bradshaw and a dark haired EE called Clint Solo! a future project me thinks Very Happy

Now, some of the newer guys that have been reflocked since they arrived,

Lord Conan J. Roxton. - Victorian SteamPunk secret service/adventurer.




Samual Montgomary-Swift. Lord Conan's fellow adventurer and big game hunter.




Teegan Wilberforce - Time traveling Steampunk pilot.



More to follow soon cheers cheers cheers cheers

Now lets see your guys, guys! bounce bounce bounce bounce

Awesome pictures and fantastic names, unfortunately I don't have any AM from my childhood, all my current squaddies have served less than 12 months in the Ecc Brigade, but rest assured once they have all settled and bonded there will be dossiers incoming.

Keep up the good work cheers

Thank you! really pleased that you enjoyed the upload Very Happy , and I shall look forward to looking out for your future uploads and dossiers bounce bounce
I was lucky that my childhood guys survived, and it is an all too common fact that a lot of guys no longer have their childhood figures. On the upside tho, you can also recreate your guys again Very Happy

I only had one Action Man when I was a kid, because we were so poor, so hence my AMMO username of 'TheOneManKid'... my Action Man was my favourite buddy when I got lonely and nobody wanted to know me and...

Oh! So, you've heard this story too many times before and now you're are just a tad bored with me wittering on about how deprived I was as a child and how I was billy no mates?!  Embarassed

Okay, well here is my original Action Man... he was renamed as Tom K a couple of years back (an acronym of The One Man Kid if you hadn't worked it out before) and starring in his own hit man movie now... cheers



All of my Action Men and GI Joes have names, so I might introduce you to the rest of them... Cool

Actually, I did this portrait of one of Tom K's best buddy's 'Ezio' yesterday, so I'll share it with you... he's a blonde Italian adventurer...

Erm... don't ask, just go with it, okay?!  Rolling Eyes

Anyway, here he is looking mighty handsome and sporting Tom K's original knitted hat... Very Happy



These two are Tom K's closest Crew members - Diesel & Django. Diesel was originally a busted Action Man Talking Commander, but got fixed up with an AT body and promoted into the role of chief Man of Action on Tom's Crew. Django was a roughed up head that got a Flocktastic makeover, turning him into a mean looking Land Adventurer! I took this random photo this evening just as a test run for the studio and then realised that it actually has a bit of vintage look about it in terms of graininess and colour tones, so decided to keep it as is more or less!

Fantastic thread!!
What an original idea Dal! lol!

CH5 are an amazing crew and it's great to see the newer members of BAM HQ too!

Gotta love Tom K's team too! Always so well photographed...although the photographs are done so the guys will look good on Ebay when Tom grows tired of them and puts them up for sale! lol!
