So I’m trawling through eBay and spot this little gem
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174326673460

Now the question is, will he turn up?
Fingers crossed as I haven’t bought a figure for years.
Maybe he will kick start my action man days again, I have a few projects just waiting

I’m crossing my fingers for you Sparklebudgie. Oh I really hope when he arrives at your HQ that he will kick start your action man days again.

He looks a bargain Brian...and even better if he reinvigorates your VAM mojo!

Cheers!

He has messaged me to say it was parcelled up last night
and again this morning to say posted out.
Looking good bounce

Finally getting round to replacing sheds as well.
You wouldn’t believe how much hard Work it was to get these into the back garden.
This should be the base (and approach) for next one

VAM rescue underway! Here's hoping he arrives in time to help you with your garden shed project.

After moving those concrete slabs, your hands probably looked like vintage VAM's, there!

Similar projects are underway here as well; sadly, not rescuing vintage VAMs or Joes, but lugging around concrete slabs and bags of sand and lumber and... garden stuff.

Best of luck on all your projects!

You have been busy Brian! Vam might turn up a little late, but I am sure he will arrive! Looking forward too seeing how you restore him!

Despite my fears he turned up today, what a great deal, he doesn’t even need restringing.

Makes it easier to pick them up when they are stacked like this.

He looks great!

All the issues he has like hard hands and missing flock look to be old age/long term storage problems, he seems to have escaped the dents and scratches of hard play back in the day.

A bargain indeed! cheers

Just need to remember where my stash of
40th hands are, then a test reflock

A fine looking fig who will soon look as good as new! Nice find! And I'm sure ol' Joe will be happy to get back in action... once he has a uniform again!

Next stage completed.
Forgotten how much I dislike removing flock, Though to be fair this one only took about 20 mins.
A quick scrub up and fill in the eyebrows and we are waiting on a reflock.
My stash of hands could be anywhere in the loft.
We are waiting to order another shed but COVID-19 is messing with that!
