Today's date?

September 18,2022

Forum Name?

Action Man Mobile Operations

Real name?

What makes you think Kamiko Takahara isn't my real name....Anyway, you all know it's "Gary"


Montreal, Canada (Mine)

Kimono Troop (New Mexico)

Stahltruppe (?)

Inside Straight (On the fringes of Human Space)

Do you still own your favourite figure from when you were a kid?

Nope.  I don't even remember what happened to them.

Are you still in contact with childhood Vam/mam or 1/6 buddies?

Nope. Childhood was too long ago, and the only one I had was the kid next door.

Do you recall what was your first Vam/mam or 1/6 vehicle?

Around 1968 or 1969 I got a brown haired GI Joe, with USMC uniform, plus the astronaut suit, plus the GI Joe Space capsule. Now of course, I'm sorry I gave it away or sold it or whatever.

Best vehicle in your motorpool now?

One of these days, I'll get around to finishing the 1/6 WWII jeep with .50 caliber MG

Best figure in your collection (vam/mam or 1/6)?

Qualitatively speaking, this guy

Best kitbash (custom figure) in your collection?

It's a tossup between these four

Did you ever get your most desired action figure item, either as a kid or as an adult collector?

Impossible to say, because my desires keep changing.

Do you still owned it?

See above

Are there any items you regret adding to your collection?

Just some cheap minor items that weren't worth the price

Has your collection grown since you came back to the hobby?

I started with one figure in late 2018.

8 months ago, my collection looked like this and it's grown since

How many figures make up your HQ?

Right now...about 26.  That's including the robot.

What does your spouse/partner/significant other or family think of your collection/hobby?

Luckily, I have only a pet cat. She doesn't care as long as she gets fed and I clean her litter box.

Why do you think adult collectors have a connection to vam/mam or 1/6 figures?

Some are recapturing a part of their childhoods. Others are military enthusiasts. Some like using them for photography, including erotic photography.

What do you enjoy about the action figure hobby?

Mostly using them to created comic book style stories, kitbashing.

What is your favourite kitbash (custom figure) by another forum member or online collector?

Dave's Dr. Evil trying to dress like Sir James Ian Bond-Fleming to impress Kamiko

Have your collecting interests changed since you first started collecting?

Not so much changed as grown.  In addition to Kimono Troop, I now have a fair sized stable of Nazis, a Retro sci-fi collection that spans "Forbidden Planet to Star Trek: Voyager and one anime figure with the hopes of getting more.

Do you have a favourite section of the AMMO forum?

Comics and General 1/6 chat

Why do you like AMMO?

The people, mainly. They are more prepared to play interactively than on other forums.

Are you active on any other online hobby forums you'd care to mention?

Don't care to mention them because they are not as good as AMMO.

This was a fascinating read-thru! Mostly low-key answers, some on the droll side I suspect, yet somehow... somehow this veiled glimpse behind the scenes gave me quite a laugh, and suddenly I am beginning to feel my enthusiasm level, which has been lagging for quite some time, beginning to rebound!

And thanks for the mention of the Doctor Evil kitbash... based on your Sir James Ian Bond-Fleming kitbash! That version of Dr. Evil was intended to be temporary, but I liked it so much I ended up leaving him like that, and eventually I purchased a second Dr. Evil body to restore his original appearance.
