Post is preceded by deep sonorous, familiar but quite unsettling music........ affraid

Something a bit different this time.
MAM in a dangerous situation that could easily prove fatal!

Superb! As a kid who grew up watching undersea adventures shows and The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau on television, I love this!

And of course none of us here actually condone the harming of sharks; we all know it's all in good fictional fun!

Now bring on the Eight Ropes of Danger!

Maybe we need Wolf_Soldier64's fantastic new "Orca" he's building to show up?

Hey I'm great lover of sharks, and of Great Whites in particular. They seem to love it here.
I've been lucky enough to have seen them VERY close up, ......thankfully with some stout bars in between.
They sure possess some serious teeth!

I recently scored the complete helmet diver's outfit from "The Eight Ropes of Danger" set in pristine condition.
Been looking for a while, but so often the diving suit had deteriorated.
Very reasonable price too!
I plan to do a deep-sea dive scene very soon.

Yep, ...that's exactly the music I was referring to! Laughing  Laughing  Laughing
Strange how that theme has remained in our imaginations for 44 years now!
And it still has the power to scare the hell out of us!

So glad my work has met with some approval here. It's a bit daunting posting as the newbie when everybody on the site seems to already know each other so well.
Thanks to all for the very warm welcome to AMMO.

Just for you!
See my version in MAM Collections under "Eight Ropes of Danger Revisited"!
I've tried to replace some of the original items with better versions to make the story more dramatic.

I saw that... and gushed effusively over it! That is what "Eight Ropes of Danger" should have looked like... and always did look like in my little kid mind! In addition to the upgraded pieces I mentioned in my other comment, the background image you found is perfect!

Yes I knew that you had, (and thanks for the comments!) but when I posted that pic originally I intended to come back to this thread and post a notice seeing as you had mentioned "The Eight Ropes of Danger" here. However I completely forgot to do it.
Better late than never, as they say?

Silly Question: To what did the Eight ROPES refer to? Am I right in assuming it must have been the 8 legs of the octopus?
But "ropes"???  Question  Question  Question Hardly ropes!
Why not legs?  And the original set did come with a very tiny octopus it must be said. Rolling Eyes
Is there more to it and am I missing something here?

If I recall the included comic book correctly, the "eight ropes" referred to the eight tentacles of the octopus.

While the original black rubber octopus was a bit small to be truly menacing, it was kind of neat in that it was fitted with a heavy metal weight in the head so it would sink in water.

Thank you for that info SCU_HG!
Sadly I came a bit late to collecting so missed those original releases which must have been so exciting, rather than just seeing them now on eBay. (And at those exorbitant prices!)
So it was the octopus after all!
I know it has now become an iconic name but I still think it's a bit........obtuse?

The only thing that tips you off is the word "eight".
