I got most of these locker boxes from boot sales at the start of this year but had a few already which are in the photos, all of them were full of equipment and uniforms when i found them. I save my christmas and birthday money each year to spend at boot sales to buy this gear. I've only opened about 10 of them for now so you can see what's in them. The bulk of my MAM gear is stored in large storage tubs, boxes and bin bags, one tub is stuffed so tight with loose uniforms that if i open the lid the uniforms ex-lode outwards lol!

I've got a lot to sort through still, it will take weeks/months, i'm doing the sorting in stages over the next few months. The amount of stuff i got at the start of this year has brought me to a standstill, it's been my best year of hunting at boot sales. It seemed to all come at once without warning, there's even been vam figures on sale at these events, but i couldn't save all of them, the stuff i bought included vam & Geyper factory fresh gear and figures at really low prices. One of my memorable finds at the start of this year was finding a stack of boxed MAM figure sets and another silver street speeder car in a box, including more jeeps and trailer plus a bin bag full of MAM and gear. I had to make a couple of journeys to get it all home, the next day my arms and legs were like lead. I've also had a few model Tri-ang trains and a 1960's club pro slot car (blue streak) from these events. There's tons more but i'm having difficulty in remembering what exactly i had found.

These MAM storage tubs look exactly like the plastic G.I.Joe ones:

A great haul indeed, I'm lucky if I find a lone naked beat up MAM.

Thanks Ade Smile



Ackie,

No, these are all i have so far, they were hard to find over the years until this year, then they started throwing themselves at me at 2 boot sales.. I remember one time i found a MAM locker box on a sellers stall a little way back from the main selling table, i opened it to see what was in it and there were sandwiches, a boiled egg and a small cake inside lol! The woman seller said oi! that's my lunch and i'm not selling the box! lol! lol! Some folks find some great uses for these MAM locker boxes, i bet some are used as fishing tackle boxes, or to store their nuts, bolts and nails in! lol!

There are 4 more that i didn't open to show you, plus plenty more to show at a later time, all crammed in large storage tubs, some really cool MAM and vam stuff, including a bundle of vehicles and other cool action figures, watch this space Wink

Look at similarities between the MAM boxes and the Joe ones in the link below, the two are almost identical. The Joe molding tools were obviously used to make the MAM ones, but with a slight alteration to the locking mechanism and hinges, it looks like an even higher impact plasic was used for the MAM ones:
