This was the 2011 figure, I missed out on it but just bought it along with the kit.

I have to say that the jacket was a very tight fit to get over his shoulders and his head. I was worried it was going to rip.

Very nice figure!

All he needs now is a tall ship and a star to sail her by!

Looking good Cappy! A great face and flock.

This guy was the last club figure I got. Never bought the outfit in the end. He's ended up in a 40th Ski Patrol.

Cappy I'm really liking the look of your Man of the Sea, his outfit looks just right for sea trekking.

Nice figure! Very Happy 
I had two of those and the flocking seemed to want to come off
fairly easy on them both so be careful...
Other than that great figure! Very Happy

I can see in the photos that he has some loose hair...does it come out continuously?

One of the Man of the Sea I had fell over and bumped his head while I was taking pics which peeled
back some flocking on his forehead area.
The other one I put in water for a photo shoot and 60% of the flocking peeled
off... ) It was in water for about 3-5 minutes)
I have done the same with reflocks and vintage original gijoes with no problems...

So you just got to be careful with them....

...I know that GI Jake doesn't sound quite as cool, but am I right in thinking that the Cotswold figures and flocks are going to be a lot better quality. They do a nice ginga jake that looks pretty much the same...and a lot cheaper by all accounts...Wink

...sounds like a flocking nightmare...I'm glad I read this before I spent hard earned cash. "Okay mum, yeah I know, never buy on impulse, always compare prices, check before you buy, dah, di, dah, di, dah, but she was right though!" Just got to sell on  some 40th stuff now...Razz

I'm nervous now as I've just bought the Man of Asia outfit from Cotswold, I hope it lives up to my expectations otherwise it'll end up on eBay as well!

I also once had a grey haired Cotswold Jake... Flocking was fantastic! I put him under water
many times and bumped him many times with no problems...

Man of Asia outfit is ok... I had Man of Asia and outfit...

I sold my entire Gi joe Club Collection in 2012.

I think they are great for displaying but not playing/bumping around or in water...

The Man of the Sea was one of my favorite Club Joes...
