Wishing you a uniformly great birthday from all at SKJ HQ!



You haven't been back into VAM for long but you've certainly made your mark with your great posts, which goes to prove my long held assertion that 1961 was a great year for producing top draw VAM collectors! lol!

Hi folks

Mrs Gunner suprised me with "How would you like to go to the V&A Childhood Museum for your Birthday ?" Shocked

So yesterday ( thanks for all the B'day wishes  Cool  ) We drove to Crewe and jumped on the train to head to old London town.

After a nice lunch ( that bit was for Mrs Gunner  Wink Laughing ) we headed of to Bethnal Green.

The Museum itself is essentially on two floors and arranged by themes etc . So my mission was to :

-take in the story of childhood
-do plenty of  'oh I had one of those '
-and find our friend  Action Man !

So sorry for the quality of the iPhone photos.

Here is Robbie the Robot from Lost in Space- I wouldn't mind him in the VAM cave !!




As the exhibitions are arrange by themes our  Action Man was scattered around the place. Hmm I'm thinking 'where is a bit of of a special display for the toy of the decade ??' Smile

First sightings.

Quite sparse but some nice kit.






Nice Scorpion


Lovely Jeep and 105 MM Recoilless rifle . I would have loved this as a kid






Next sighting were these chaps in a section about play imitating real life.



All the Sea Wolfs I've seen so far have been Blue ?



The SAS HALO (?) Para was nice too.

The ceremonials were special weren't they ? Also the LRDG set is a good looking set.



The RM Artic and Scuba diver



The next spot was this fantastic display of Action Force.



Imagine having as your job creating these displays for shops and toy fairs ? 🆒

The Action Force was way after my first  Action Man time, but you could see here the way that the VAM 84 range might have gone?









Plenty of ideas for some  MAM vehicle Kitbashes  





The next sighting was in the story of manufacturing and protoypes.



Final sighting was in a section related to Space around the corner from Staer Wars were these guys.
Palitoy   never seemed to quite get this bit quite right ?



The Dolls house section was brilliant - loads of ideas to support the Airfix Strongpoint Laughing   This kitchen was great almost 1/6th scale I think.



Oh I had one of those !!


Lots of fun with a set very similar to this !!



This was a dream never realised- several kids down the street had one - early 70's (71 -3 ?)



And finally I thought this quote is quite apt for all of us  Laughing




Hope you enjoyed the photo's  Very Happy
