Posted a couple of pics of Spud at the Cliffs of Moher in response on another member's thread and was getting a few oohs and ahhs scenery wise, so thought I'd stick a few of his travels and adventures up.

This fella is a regular on many of our domestic trips in Ireland.

Boy do our VAM get about as bit nowdays. I remember when a week's holiday down the coast in a caravan was the extent of their travels! cheers

Fantastic scenery, and Spud has possibly the best Action Man / GI Joe scar ever!

Thanks guys for your kind comments. Very Happy

Spud was my very first Action Man in '75 or '76 (I can never remember the exact year).
He was an EE Hybrid second issue sailor with a full beard.
My enterprising sisters got to him with a Stanley blade from the shed or somewhere and 'shaved' him and gouged out the scar. Dangerous little minxes the pair of 'em !! affraid  affraid
They got total hell for using a blade without supervision.
Anyhoo, Spud emerged 'changed' with Action Man PTSD.

He's still the most important figure I'll ever own and I'd never attempt to change that face, they gave him instant hard man character.  Very Happy  Very Happy

A genuine adventure tale behind the scar! Now that makes him even more cool!

Ireland eh? Did he go to a pub brawl? Thought they were a compulsory inclusion on any Irish tour!

Kev, just looking at Spud in this particular shot, I have to say that whatever it is he's watching through his binoculars seems to be very......"exciting"?  Shocked

Fantastic back story!!!

Thanks for sharing what must have been a most traumatising and life changing event. But it has made him the toughest of Action Man tough guys!

There's one guy who might actually get respect from Joe and Hank.

It's so frustrating, and embarrassing, when I overlook something so obvious in my own photos, and then somebody else points it out and I can't see anything else!

Your pic with Spud in the forest of "trees" is really good, and I also like the way you have successfully managed to incorporate him into a photo with real humans and yet he still looks "in scale".
Well done Kev! cheers cheers cheers

Awesome Spud travel shots!!!

They're all great! I really like the one in the creepy forest. What kind of trees are those?

Nessie...good one, Barry. lol!

Somehow I get the feeling that if anyone is going to see Nessie it would be Spud.

cheers cheers cheers
