Very , very nice Steve. Great looking adventurers. Watch out with those light blue trousers outside my friend. They attract dirt like like politicians attract anger. Buggers to keep clean! Smile

PostSubject: some useful kit for £5.99 ??   Mon Jun 05, 2017 9:08 pm

Hi folks

whilst doing some searching for UltraCorp / Chap Mei 1/8th figures, Dal put me onto Smyths Toys, I found these guys.
https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toys/action-figures-and-playsets/soldier-force-and-the-corps/the-corps-ultra-elite-single-30cm-figure-assortment/p/152248

There are three sets - so popped around and bought some up to see whats was what.












As you can see the real " why the heck did they.. " point is about the figures - no elbow articulation !!!- so my figures will have the head sculpts taken off , the hands will be MAM swaps and I may e able to use the bottom half for some swaps Ala Chris?Rouge Trooper did with his Noface conversion



So you get some nice kit - the first two sets will really up gun your Support weapons sections !

This chap will provide me a nice basis for some kit swapping with the 3 Bn Munrovians





His Flack Jacket is really quite nice




Hope you find this helpful Smile

Very nice Steve. They come with quite the amount of accessories eh.
While I'm here , the digital camo's that you have the same as mine. Do you use the boonies (hats) on your guys as I find myself needing one only & I don't really want to buy a complete set again from ML just for the one lil hat. I have some spare hats here or cash if preferred? Do let me know my friend, my guy here has a cold head ffs. Twisted Evil

Gunner,

You've got to try and get the early issued Ultra Corps figures, they are the ones with good articulation. The figures are very sturdy and have high quality uniforms that are made of a thick quality fabric. Lanard always pack in plenty of useful equipment with their figure sets, which is great..

When I finally get time I will take some more photos of my Ultra Corps troops. Lanard have received a few emails from me in the past about their products, they are a top toy company in China and on a par with Hasbro, they even had a run-in with Hasbro about their own version of Nerf. I just wish they would release the fully articulated 12" UC figures into the UK again.

Smile

PostSubject: Why should MAM have all the great Jeeps ??   Sat Aug 12, 2017 12:24 pm



Dismount ! ( actually I need a pee Shocked )


So after looking enviously at Chris's Rhino's and looking back at the VAM84 pics of the Wolf Pack vehicles , I thought it was about time the VAM's of the Munrovian's got their hands on one.

A nice specimen- I just need to straighten out the Ariel.

Hi folks ,
Been off radar with holidays and work .. but there have been a couple of new additions.

A package arrived Today .


All the way from Edingburgh - Thanks Ackie88- top bloke cheers



"Och aye Not a bad journey- Royal Mail are improving !.. now I must find the Munrovians Mam HQ "

.. a little later..




"Well I tell you - Its not very Tactical ...Orange ? Really ???- You Mams !

So this beauty arrived a few weeks back - it was an e-bay collect only- its in pretty good shape. So I had to wait for a business trip to go past Brum. I'm sure I can spray it a tactical OG !




Here it is opened up


Got a full rack of missiles


I'm sure its missing some bits and Bobs and our Grand MaMsters Clivvers and Ackie can tell me what's missing Very Happy

Any way back to the story
Another MAM jeep arrived with two troopers- so we now have quite a good motor pool developing Very Happy

"I dont think The VAM's like the Command Centre much"
"Well I think you have to agree it doesn't blend in !"


Hey guys I've picked up some movement in Sector 7 !


Get the new guys to check it out

The troops set off


Mean while in Sector 7

"Och - the base has gotae be close "


Gotta take care


Also.... I know the Munrovia lines must be close ..got to report the MAM Heavy Weapons Group...



So an almost complete Mortar Attack ! He came with the Hummer,




...Here comes the Jeep
I Can see something over there...


Hey something happening over there .. I can hear a Jeep .. might be close..


Ackie88.2decides to take a risk and break cover


Advance and be recognised ! Man !

City ! - Advance friend- Hey more movement

MA breaks cover


Don't shoot -He's MAM too !


MA Advances


Great to see you lads ! These two are new as well - The Munrovian MAM's ranks are swelling.


The Jeep heads back with the mortar and Ackie88.2
Good first mission lads - lets get you back and get some boots !


The other two patrol back toward the command centre  and their next mission .


I hope you enjoyed the latest additions
cheers

It's good to see MAM being appreciated more these days cheers

The MAM Humvee is a must have item for every MAM fan, it oozes play value, especially with the built in weapons rack and computer control centre. The Rhino jeep is another fab item that serves all 12" figure generations perfectly, including vam. The mercenary Rhino jeep versions don't have any doors Wink
