I seem to be adding to my list (nine posts above) faster than items are arriving.

Time for a FULL STOP on the buying; at least until I manage to sell some more stuff! Embarassed

I’m waiting from EBay Action Man Street Combat Police Man.1994 Urban Action Man With All Accessories, which I got for the asking price I asked for. The final thing I bought on EBay which I won but Dad was the only bidder is a Atlantic Mission that’s in play use.

Mark recently sent me three complete or nearly complete VAM sets.

They are great!

But since I only had one Action Man without a uniform, I recently
won an auction for another VAM. He needs hands, which I will get
from Cotswold at some point.

That just leaves me one other VAM to get for the third set. And I
had recently discovered I had a VAM Red Devil red jumpsuit and helmet.

Which means I will need to get two more VAM's to fill all of them. Very Happy

Afrikakorps helmet from Battlegear Toys to help equip the Phicen S21B I have coming in from Giantoy, an who's name will likely be Schatzie Sturm

Also coming from Battlegear Toys a US style OD patrol cap, which will go on the head of a deposed Latin American Dictator who likes to wear fatigues....named and fictional country of origin not yet decided, but I would appreciate suggestions.

Does your deposed Latin American dictator favor large cigars?

I think that's pretty much mandatory for Latin American dictators.

In the Marvel GI Joe comics, when they ran into a Latin American dictator,
he was usually referred to as El Jefe. Which loosely translated means
"The Boss." In a country called Sergione, if I remember correctly.

Larry Hama wrote the stories.

And in the Tintin books, Generals Alcazar and Tapioca take turns overthrowing one another and running the fictional country of San Theodoros, whose traditional enemy is the neighboring country of Sao Rico.

I'm rather tempted to all him "El Puerco" after Gregory Sierra's character in the comedy "Soap."

Some plastic cake decorator palm trees in various sizes which I intend to use for my layered background approach to Dinosaur Valley. My intention is to root these on rock formations that will be placed further back than any other scenery in such a way that they might look to be in the same scale as the figures, though obviously, they are not.

Forced perspective! If it's good enough for Hollywood, it's good enough for me.

I am this time because I bought another Toxic Robot and it’s boxed this time. The seller was asking £35.00 plus £3.99 for p&p but dad made a offer of £32 and the seller excepted our offer.

1 WWII German helmet
1 WWII German panzer side hat (wedge cap in Canada)
1 WWII German officer brown belt
2 WWII German stick grenades

1 WWII Japanese cap
1 WWII Japanese enlisted belt
1 WWII Japanese canteen
1 WWII German canteen
1 WWII German SS camo smock
1 WWII German bayonet.
1 pair WWII British sunglasses

As you can guess, practically everything here will be used to equip Stahltruppe.

No...It's WWII. However, if you want WWII Pickelhaub's here is where you can get them.

https://battlegeartoys.com/collections/german-wwi-headgear

As the Chilean military academy still wears Prussian Pickelhaubs in full dress, I've been tinkering with the idea of doing a female squad wearing them....

Cut paper palm fronds somehow never quite look to scale.
Now here's a masterclass in making palms using small feathers! Fiddly but gives a quite realistic result!

I cancelled a couple of pre-orders that keep getting pushed back, and then, having that money burning a hole in my pocket, I placed an order with Giantoy for another TBLeague S35 (with head):

Because, y'know, having things on the way is part of the fun, right?

And as long as I was looking around the Giantoy site, I added this to the cart:
