Yea, those hands don't jive with the body type.

Those hands looks like the "Dynamic Physique" (Muscle Body in the US) hands.

Lol!! I bloody said they looked like bpee grippers on a 64 body!! But now they don't even look like proper bpee grippers either! Any chance of pulling one out so as I can see the peg? Smile

Hahaha! I just get curious when I see stuff! I've had to take time out from here the last year as me and the wife had twins last September ( also have a 15 and a 5 yr old) and now they are a year old I'm slowing trying to slip back in so you'll have to excuse my weird requests! They are not without reasoning! I was here day in and day out from the forums beginning so its a hard trek back in when I've missed so much! Now show me the pegs!!! Wink

He has 1964 on his back, but the hand fixings are rather...er interesting..think I may swap them for proper ones.

These look like Hobbycrash KFGs to me, I'll 'ave 'em, if you don't like them! PM some close up pics of the pair, if you want £££'s for them... Very Happy

Interesting hands on him. On this side of the pond the later AT figs with the standard body did get KFGs. This was circa 1974, I believe. There is also the Action Man hybrid figs, but they come with an EE head.

The USA KFG are a sort of cross between the action man gripper and the bp ee gripping hands

Yes, Kung Fu Grip, that was the brand name given to the Adventure Team's gripping hands! Check this out...

Newest recruit arrived today.

Bit of work to do around the chin area.... he's going to end up with mutton chops and a mustache.

I'm not really a fan of that uniform to be honest..so probably not. Although some elements of the lancers uniform may creep in...who knows Wink

I see him more as a Victorian mercenary/adventurer who was sucked through a worm hole into the present day. A sort of reverse steam punk. A mix of Victorian dress with modern weaponry...ish.

If your going for the steampunk/ Victorian era might I suggest looking up Stef's Fantastic Bovey Boys??
