PostSubject: Collection update   Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:38 pm

As I have been collecting for 1 year in December , I thought I would get a stock take of what I have..
I have amassed quite a few figures .
Over 60 action men  ,  25 or so dragon figures ,   Fighting furies,.. six million dollar man ,...Lone Ranger... I have loads of other uniforms and kit and a couple of vehicles , but this is the latest line up..
When I was off over last Christmas , I thought I'd get a couple to put in my office...  90 odd figures later..I think I may have gone a bit to far.... lol! .....    but they give me a warm happy feeling of nostalgia....that makes me happy..., which I suppose why a lot of us collect..
My collecting is mainly ww2 based and I like to throw a bit of dragon kit with the action man stuff, as it enhances it..
And where I had the idea of doing the diaramas from and making buildings ....?  I don't know... if you would have told me this time last year that I would have 60 odd action men and was playing dollies ( as my wife calls it )  photographing them in the wild...    I would have phoned you the doctor..






























A few dragon Germans ..as I have run out of action men..







A few other action figures  I have picked up   Which bring back those childhood memories.











A few  mam  I've kept , chip hazard and roger Moore






And last and least ...the Chippendales .


I bought these guys for there uniforms ..so have a lot of spare..

lol! lol! lol! lol! Dean! You my friend have well and truly caught the vam bug! there are lots f different collectors, and we all collect for different reasons, but you sir and what me and SKJ (Steve) call a player! (Just like us!) We are not content with having them sitting on a shelf, we have to get them down and photograph, customize and personalize our troops! and lets face it, photographing them is the only way we can really play with them now? but I bet a sneaky machine gun sound effects is uttered when no ones about? lol! lol!

I love the diversity of your collection Dean, I remember as a kid, Jake's army was made up of lone ranger, fighting furies, mego and many other figures. Its probably why my collection is so varied now? You have made yourself a stunning collection and adding the dragon and bbi parts just enhances them even more! You are a valued member for us here on ammo! and I very much look forward to our posts Very Happy . Keep up the great work! cheers cheers cheers

Fantastic line up there Dean!

Same as you, I intended on getting maybe half a dozen at the most when I started collecting back in 2006.......i ended up with a few more than that and still collecting now.

Photographing is the thing I need to get back into, I love the pics you and the other guys post on here!

Heres to the next 90 figures mate lol! lol!

Happy (almost) 1st year anniversary of VAM collecting Dean! cheers cheers

I think you've summed up the why....

It's the how that's impressed everyone!

Rustygun blockbuster productions have really made an impact across the VAM forums. Epic battles with massive purpose built sets. It's the stuff of legend....and childhood dreams. It's been a great year with you on board.

...and you even have more Paras than me! Shocked That's no easy feat either! lol! lol!

Thanks for your words of encouragement...
I love making stuff, My dad used to make stuff for me and my brother ...i.e...action man fort and other bits and pieces ...and he made a huge base for my 1/72 soldiers out of plaster on an old kids snooker table it had trees ( sticks from the garden )...with that green bushy stuff from model railway sets.... as leaves , He even put a miniature log cabin on it ..It had hills and caves Even a bridge over a river and water proofed it , so I could pour water it in and sponge it out when I was finished..... and I made the same thing for my eldest boy ..he loved it ....all his mates would come round and play with it for hours. With my old soldiers...
so maybe that's where my inspiration comes from... come to think of it my grandfather used to make stuff ..he built a miniature castle and a little village in his tiny council flat back garden , it was also awesome....I'll see if I can find any pictures of it...
Except now I've only my self to play with...( pardon the pun) lol!
