We went to  a car boot sale a couple of weeks ago and I found a Max Steel for just 20 pence and this guy for £3.00:

I've been after an astronaut for a while!  I didn't do as well as Matthew though - he found two boxed MAM figures :

Car boot finds. Box1_zps3a169275
Car boot finds. Box2_zpsa82c10d0
Car boot finds. Box3_zpsce10d8b7

He paid £15 for the pair after knocking the price down a little.  They didn't actually stay in the boxes long though, but he's really happy with them!

I actually wanted the guy with the snow board, but Matthew got there first!

Matthew's done it again!  Last Sunday I found a blue pants MAM and a Max Steel baddy (pictures to follow), but Matthew found this:

Here's the two guys I got from the latest car boot.  Neither came with boots but surprisingly they both came with clothes!

Car boot finds. Newguys_zps92c5ab0c

Max Steel baddy called Bio Constrictor and only cost a quid.  I thought he'd make a good zombie or Doctor X's creation/experiment gone wrong.  The other is my favourite type of MAM - blue pants with proper bending elbows.  He cost £2 which seems about the going rate for MAM these days.  I've had loads of these before but this time I think I'll leave his head on and not swap it with another, unless I find a cheap EE head!  His hair just needs a little touch up where the paint's rubbed off.

Another two figures to join the ranks.  The guy on the left has a hand missing (I have spares, but they've been packed up to try and sell the house!) and the one on the right seems to have some purple paint or something on his face which I've not been able to remove yet.  A few joints here and there but nothing I can't fix up. Not bad for a quid each.

Awesome finds there those boxed figures and the vehicle look great it seems your son has quite the eye and knows how to make a good deal. I like the guy in the orange jumpsuit and I really like Bio Constrictor a really cool villain and one that I definately want to get my hands on at some point oh yes and the other figures are all great to particularly the Astronaut now that's a good figure Surprised

Only cost a quid Bio Constrictor did, that's a great price. I agree with you he would make a good zombie or Doctor X's creation/experiment gone wrong, badly gone wrong. The blue pants with proper bending elbows hes wearing funky clothes.

It's really nice to see that another two figures have joined your MAM ranks Peter Wink.

Thanks Alex. These guys are getting harder and harder to find at car boots these days!

More good finds, Pete!  cheers

The  'Bio Constrictor' is a nice baddie figure, I managed to pick him up 3 years ago at a boot sale, I haven't seen any since, so I consider this figure to be quite rare (I'm always looking out for him). I like the way his bendy neck extends quite a way out when his head is pulled upwards. The figure would make a great Evil space enemy of Action Man in Space.

Well done on acquiring one!
