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

PostSubject: A Couple of new additions and an unexpected arms drop !   Thu Nov 30, 2017 8:45 pm

A Couple of new additions and an unexpected arms drop !

These two chaps caught my eye for different reasons.

The 30th has had a running repair- it looks like a classic "dog chew " - the head has been filled with what looks like silicone.- I think it may be a lost cause and I may be PM'ing Lui over on UAMHQ to see if he has a spare for sale   Question



The Boxer is interesting - I got him because of the head scultp . When you twist  him his arms move in uppercut milling fashion - I may just keep him "as is ".



Another shot


A unexpected parcel arrive yesterday ..... and this was the contents - an Arms drop 🆒


A very big thank you to whomever sent it - Really appreciated . The Munrovians salute you   cheers  cheers  



Some really nice weapons the bull pup Styers are really  Cool  Cool

PostSubject: Uh oh.. was this a Charity shop bargain or not ??    Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:13 pm

Hi folks

I was on my back from a meeting when I decided to check out a new Barnardo' shop that had opened on the outskirts of Northwich.
I make it a habit to call in regularly to another Barnado's  - although the sight of a 56 year old man rummaging in the bargin toy bin does raise a few eyebrows Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Laughing Laughing  I just use this little fella as an excuse!



Anyway this was the result.

Captain Morgan , Sgt Gaunt of the VAM training team, Island Assault Ackie and Mortar Raid Commander ( Clivvers) take stock of the package.


CM- Well Sgt this does look interesting .. I'm thinking mainly MAM?
SG- Well yes Sir .. but didn't Gunner only yesterday say - no more figures - its kit and weapons until all the current recruits re back in active service ??


IAA: Oct , ye know Gunner can't resist a stranded Action man - VAM or MAM !
MRC: Well he has welcomed me and found me 4 other Mortar Raid troops - I spent 10 years alone in the back of a cupboard !!
CM: yes I know but £50 ??
SG : could be some willing troops in here though sir ?
IAA: Aye and its near Xmas too ?

SG & MRC take a closer look-
MRC :There are definatley some guys in here Sgt.
SG: come on then lets get them out and see what we have - its deffo not a VAM bundle though!


CM: Ok IAA - you know what to do - any Knock off take 'em to one side and deal with them.
IAA: Ye can rely on me Sir !


The guys take position-
SG : stay alert men - it could be a Dragonian trick !


The first of the survivors burst out
Survivor one : Don't shoot we are friends !!
IAA : No false moves until you are all accounted for !


CM: Well Sarn't I told you looks like more MAM
SG: I'm quite impressed with them on the whole sir - the Dreadnought and Blues & Roylas  rebuild  programme Gunner has been studying should bring them all up to scratch.


CM takes stock if the troops -9 in all
Three with limited articulation and one with dodgy paratrooper knee.



MR Clivvers; So whats the problem mate?
Para: well mainly I've had one hard landing too many - I've had at least thirty three bedroom drops to my name - sadly straight onto the Patio
MRC Clivvers - ouch ! - don't worry Gunner will fix you up or give you a head swap to a Chad Valley body !


IAA and SG check out some of the kit

IAA: Well I fancy a go on this beauty !
SG: probably end up as part of Zabaletta scouts - it could be the first MAM addition


IAA: I fancy a go with those guys - there are some MAM Cammo Attack recruits - we could form a section
SG: Speak to Captain Kobina I'm sure he would approve .

So the rest of the stuff includes a dune buggy? or is it a go kart  ( tactical orange !!- doh !)
a couple of useful cammo cargo pants but the rest all looks little bit like stuff for the spares spare box !! lol! lol!

If any one spots anything they are after - just shout !





CM takes aside the guys with limited articulation.



CM: Ok men you'll report to the hybrid unit - your issue is arm articulation- unfortunatley Hasbro had a strange policy of mind articulation- its new Chad Valley arms for you guys
Racing Driver: Will it hurt sir ?
CM : No you won't feel a thing !!

MRClivvers - Don't worry mate you will survive as a head transplant at they very least and probably a section commander with that head sculpt!


Para & Island Assault Ackie make their way back to the Munrovian 2nd Bn Depot


IAA: No more Civvy drops for you my friend - its going to be Combat drops for you all the way once those knees are sorted or you get a full body transplant,
Para: At last !! no more buggering about chasing Dr X and his buckets of toxic waste ...
IAA: Don't count your chickens too soon - the Dragonians are a fearsome foe ... Did I tell you about my narrow escape ?..
