For years I've had a super articulated electronic max Steele figure with his head off, the neck  post was broken off inside the head so I cut the back of the head open to remove it and its sat around for ages so the other day I decided to fix him! I grabbed some elastic and an old pen lid to act as a neck post and reattached like a BPEE.

After I popped the head back on I have since used super glue gel to glue the split back up (forgot to take pic) and now his head moves a lot better than they usually do Very Happy

That's a good bit of fixing on Max Steel's noggin, the pen lid fix is a really good idea. I wonder if a big marker pen lid would work in fixing up a EE vam head? Cool

Any ideas of what you will kit the figure out in?


I've been a big fan of Max Steel figures for years now, the super articulated ones are my favourite ones (there's 3 types of articulation levels in the figure range) I'm glad to see the figure now being accepted a bit more. I think i sent a Max to Al a few years ago, probably to try and get a few others into Max Steel. It's a nice figure, but Max's hairdo plays havoc with vam helmets and berets, hoods and wooly hats seem to work the best with Max. Max Steel is a 1/6 continuation of the classic Big Jim, Max even shared the same colour schemes as the Big Jim/Mark Strong 9" action figures.

I should try and get a photo posted of all my Max Steel figures one day Wink

No not at all, it's the college/high school style haircut and lack of facial battle scar that leads to this thinking. Max steel has a young hero looking face that appealed to young & adult fans of the tv cartoon, which ran for 3 seasons (2000 - 2002). Battle Action Man is a totally different kind of hero compared to Max Steel. I've liked the Max Steel figures since i got back into vam again in 2009, Max Steel reminds me of the classic Big Jim/Mark Strong figure i had when i was a kid.

I wonder who would win an arm wrestling match out of these two: MAM or Max??

Smile

Lol..well I'm toying with the idea of a battle scar on at least one of my two..and maybe some stubble on the other.

Sounds like a good custom idea, i forgot to point out that there are Max figures that come with slightly different (moody/mean) looking facial expressions, i think these would be more appealing to customizers. There's also ones that wear eyepieces (a green or red one), they are also my faves and have a rather mean/serious look about them, i have some somewhere.

That's a great bash.

It's good to know that with a bit of work they can look mean n moody.

Nice custom paint job and kitmix @ Ross! Cool

That new paint job certainly gives that one a more serious tougher look, kind of a C*A military advisor look, also that MAM vest matches well with the rest of that outfit.

I'm sitting at my pc and i can see a medium sized tub jam packed with Max figures, i'm now itching to get to my acrylic paint collection lol!
