Been playing with this idea for sometime, using cheap uniformed figures from China. I took and chance and can't believe how good these sniper sets are! So I kitted out Goldie and bradshaw as a sniper team, really pleased with how they came out!

Goldie and Bradshaw look sniper-tastic together as a sniper team. I’m really liking the desert camouflage outfits. I’m also really liking the pictures you’ve taken of them.

The uniforms and accessories appear to be highly detailed and of sturdy construction.

The shoes are pretty cool! Doll and action figure shoes and boots can be crazy expensive for ones that look realistic.

That's quite the tripod rifle, there, too. Was that part of the set?

And so you should be very pleased with how they turned out Dal Wink.

Everything he has on David all come with the set, the only thing I did away with was the figure it came on. Everything fits really well, no tricks or tucks, just a straight swap over cheers cheers cheers

Agreed!
Then there's the problem of some of those very realistic shoes and boots not being fully hollow but made for figures whose feet can be removed to literally plug on the shoes.
None of my MAMs have removable feet and I have been caught in the past with beautiful looking (and expensive!) footwear that I cannot use!

Luckily, these boots are hollow, so no problem with them fitting Action Man's feet cheers

Recently had a couple of heads flocked, When they returned after a bit of trimming, they are now kitted out and ready for adventure! Anyone who has followed this thread will recognize the one chap, he is of course Wing Commander Teegan Wilberforce, Lord Conan's trusted pilot. The original Teegan left for pastures new, but I had to bring him back! So sporting a slightly changed hair style to the original, here he is in Dinosaur Valley with a companion, Charles "Chas" Anderson (many thanks Reddragon for the bowler hat!). How did he get back and who is that guy with him I hear you say?? well, you will just have to wait for the next crossover comic chapter to find out! lol! lol!

Outstanding, fun photo using many of the tools in your arsenal: backdrop painting to suggest a hazy, distant landscape, carved foam "stone" ruins, aquarium foliage, I believe the base must be a moulded aquarium background, dramatic lighting, and fabulously flocked figures fully kitted out. This is an excellent photo and a fine example of the multiple techniques you employ to bring your Action Man world spectacularly to life!

Is he Wilberforce from the future? Or perhaps a 'Time Remnant' as coined by The Flash, messing with the timeline so much has him left out and untouched by changes to the timeline?
