Hi folks

I've enrolled my mate who lives in Cardiff in scouring GumTree locally .

He has done really well and there seems to be a few MAM around. Shocked

So we welcome all ACTION MAN to fight the Dragonians. Infact ( cover your ears Hank & Joe) . I quite like the fully articulated ones… its just the bendy leg , moulded on weapons , strange mechanisms etc that really frustrate me. What were the Hasbro designers thinking !! Rolling Eyes

So here are the first batch 'from up the valleys". Colour Sgt Hart and Captain Morgan of the training team with them up.

Most interesting were these two

A talking MAM ? - I'll sort out some AAA batteries and see what happens. Does anyone know what his commands might be?

This guy I think throws grenades

Some kind of Ninja  ( Cobra?)

He has a code on the back which I think makes him one of the early 90's issues ?stand back if you don't like MAM- Welsh arrivals at Gunners 35948567-0FC8-4288-B760-494626E3A82C_zpssz7fgwys


The second batch came from an Army housing estate near Brecon. A good selection here of articulated figures.

Although you can see the progression over the 2000's - again really not sure what the Hasbro designers were thinking with the 'moulded' torso look.

A couple of interesting figs. This guy is some kind of Samurai?

He has a mechanism on the back that works both his arms and legs …. but he can't stand up ! - so a bit of one play novelty figure for me !

The Commanders talk through the team -

I'm really sorry Commander Taff - the Bendy leg guys will need to go into the Gunner Re articulate MAM project!
And DRx is definite No No !!

Got one of these as well

But Morgan and Hart don't know what to make of it ..

Interesting Captain … bit its not a Turbo Copter !!

So I now have quite a burgeoning Platoon of MAM - Another 10 colleagues upstairs.. so if they can avoid being sent to the charity shop  lol! and I can do something with those blooming hands, they too can take a role in reclaiming Munrovia from the Dragonian invaders  lol!

Thanks for looking Very Happy

Thanks for that info Ackie,

Helps me with some ideas re uniforms etc .

On the MaM street commander - does he need the radio/walkie talkie to work ? ( if his voice mechanisms are ok)

I'd agree with BrownBoots re the Samurai guy- great head sculpt, pity about the rest.

Don't worry I'll keep these guys in the ActionMan Family- they can kick butt of the Max Steels who make up my enemy troops Laughing

You see the walkie talkie in my photo off the street commander, well that's what you need and when you talk into your voice comes back to you though the street commander if that makes sence.
