Hi folks
Some new arrivals . For those who know their MAM,
What sets are they from? The guy on the left head sculpt looks very classic VAM New MAM arrivals at Gunner's Smile 
I think he is an Action Man 30th.

The guy on the left is indeed a 30th and the guy on the right is one of the very first original MAM released in 94.

Thanks guys. £15 from GumTree not bad I think Question

I've got all my mates on the look out for VAM /MAM - this was via my mate Roger in Cardiff lol!

I'm having to say the more of the MAM guys I get ( the fully articulated ones ) the more I'm starting to like them.
Just need to change out the hands though.. almost as bad as VAM "Pinchers" !

Although MAM is not my main 'target' , i'm thinking collecting a few good examples now might pay off in say 5-10 years.

Any 'rare'/hot/sought after items I should be looking our for ?

I think the 30th figures are quite rare, especially fully kitted in the repro uniform. I've heard a few people swapping MAM hands for Max Steel hands - they look similar but are slightly smaller, and you can often pic up Max Steel's cheaper than VAM grippers.

Right Didier Comments from Action Man HQ
The guy on the left looks a like a 30th AM.
The one in the middle looks like 2003 Camo Atak (might be ref 47758). His webbing is 1998 Bowman (ref 89513-115).
The one on the right is hard to tell. I would need a closer head pic.
The one with the crocodile is probably the 2008 Crocodile Mission (might be ref 01571).

and lui66 comment
The one on the right is the Battleforce   head which came on a rubber limbed body.

They both completely right on what your loos figures are Wink.

The naked one on the right the Battleforce one that lui66 typed it was, thought you like to know that the green vest is from action man pyramid mission.

The guy on the left looks a like a 30th AM what Didier typed he's wearing the Orange life jacket from the action man operation camouflage.

Chris,

It's the head sculpt from the MAM basic figure called 'Global Mission' It has a very realistic skintone finish and very matt too, kind of porous. It's one of my fave head sculpts from the MAM team, they are a real pain to remove from the MAM body, I gave up trying. The one above seems to have a slight squash to the shape of it's head, it could be camera lens distortion though?
