A few group shots









Thanks for looking! more to follow soon!  cheers

Outstanding photo work Dal, smashing looking figures too, the diorama looks amazing as always Very Happy


I say Phleeerp to Photobucket! There's plenty of other good free photo hosting sites out there, but everyone should try to keep within the Bandwidth limitations, make all your albums private, it uses far less Bandwidth.

Thanks Clive for taking the time to comment Very Happy .I always appreciate your feedback my friend. Yeah, this photobucket fiasco borders on very unfair treatment, especially as they offered free accounts for so much space for so long!, then when no one was looking, changed the rules! However, we must not be put off, as you say there are plenty of other free photo hosting sites, so stuff em! lol! lol! lol!

Moving away from my childhood survivors for a while, here are a couple more from my collocation Very Happy

These are my grunts I bashed together, I call them Echo Team. Figures are 100% vam, and their kit is 90% vintage vam, tho some 40th and modern kit has sneaked in too.

The vintage colour effect works really well on those photos, really good outfits too, it's just like back in the day playtime. I like 40th items, they offer freshness, sharpness and mintyism...  I'd rather have mint 40th outfits than some ratty tatty vintage outfits any day Cool Cool Cool

Recently, I traded with Jet, here is one of the figures he traded with me, a vintage fuzzy. I have decided to call him Sgt. Taylor in honour of Jet Very Happy . I kitted him out as a commando, probably one of my favourite uniforms. 90% is vintage, enjoy!



and here he is with my other commando. (100%) vintage Very Happy



Thanks for looking! Very Happy

That's a darn shame you lost 40 pages of work, but this is a great start to a new thread.

I wonder if Photobucket has any idea of the amount of Goodwill they've squandered here? For years now everytime someone asks about how to post photos on the board a half dozen or more members tell them, Photobucket...over and over. You can't buy that kind of advertising.

I don't know what they're playing at, but to take that much goodwill and turn it completely around to bad will can't be a winning business strategy. Rolling Eyes scratch Rolling Eyes


cheers cheers cheers

Action Man Commandos were probably the ones that lead the way in the most explosive back garden warfare back in the day, I bet even some played with them in darkness whilst using a torch. Very nice figures Dal Cool Cool Cool

A couple of nice upgrades to add to them two is a black coloured Dinghy each Wink

A while back I asked Steve (Somekindajoe) if I could make replica's of his famous characters 'Joe & Hank' He kindly agreed Very Happy . We then came up with the idea of instead of just making replica's we would make them clones of the originals. We called it the 2.o Program. Here they are,

Agent Joe 2.0's arrival







Agent Hank 2.0 arrival










It seems from security footage at BAM HQ, Hank 2.0 is showing more character traits in common with his original Shocked







Thanks for looking cheers

Nice one DAL, the photo stories are great to see again Cool

Be careful with this one below, you might get a knock at your front door later from the local Fuzz, just show them it's only a toy Action Man figure with toy weapons...

...I blame Google Bots object recognition software lol!

Very nice throughout Dal. Shame photobucket killed off threads, but it does remove figures that left home & makes way for the new arrivals. So not all is lost.

Joe and Hank felt very honoured to be the first subjects of the 2.0 programme and as you may remember monitored their clones adventures with interest...







It's probably still in the top secret planning stage but there's an unsubstantiated rumour that Jake has initiated a 2.0 programme at SKJ HQ. While the subject of the cloning has not be announced you can be sure it won't be Mike Power. One Atomic man at SKJ HQ is already one too many!! lol!
