Hello All, Thought I`d share this with you,I looked in on ebay last week typed in action man in the search to see what was about top of the list was a blonde bearded AM with less than 2 mins to go first impression was that it didn't look too bad,feeling the need for a bit of VAM retail therapy I frantically signed in,I now have less than a minute and its sitting on 26 quid so quick decision time.Those of a military background will know that a snap shot is when a target of opportunity pops up and you need to either fire a round or leave it (theres a high probability of a miss) So how much is a blonde beardy  worth ? Last one I bought was about 8 years ago for 20 quid stuff it I fire off 35 quid with 5 secs to go and win it for £31 drunken drunken .
Now I get chance to look at description and pics seller says it was their childhood VAM and has been in a shoe box the past 20 odd years.It turns up the next day !!!!!!!!  or at least the red card of disapointment from the postie does and I collect it the day after.
I get a blonde beardy fixed eye no rub affraid  dressed in a very tidy basic soldier uniform and super tight joints.
A complete sailor uniform (less black ribbon) with complete tally a very nice pusuit pilot suit helmet is near mint cheers and a near complete DSD bounce and a few other bits n bobs including a very minty duffel. jocolor

Result Andy!!

With those 'snap shots' you can quite easily end up shooting yourself in the foot but this looks like it's worked out great! I bet that sailor set was beardy's original uniform!

That's a very nice haul, Andy! It all looks in great shape, and a bargain too! Cool Cool Cool

I've recently noticed a few MAM collectors snapping up MAM job lots on the bay, they're probably preparing for the future MAM forums bounce
