Hi Nate & CA,

They do look good solid toys - lots of play value. I have also seen them turn up as these guys on Amazon
WorldPeace keepers - looks like the basic core figures?

They are  little bulky for my tastes. I bought them for the uniforms to put on some VAM squads - I've had to buy 4 boxes worth to get some sets  together  Shocked - so will have to find a project for the 18 spare figures I have.

Nate- Your bash looks excellent.- What is the basis Dragon gear ?

World Peacekeeper is what the Power Team figs are called. The later Power Team bodies aren't quite so bulky; and are a bit taller than some of the other figs. Shorter than Sideshow, but taller than BBi or the basic DML ones.

The airborne officer is wearing the uniform and webbing from the DiD Band of Brothers Dick Winter fig. Here he is with a Glider Pilot that is also based on a Power Team body. The uniform is a Cots shirt, 21st trousers and DML webbing.

A few more Power Team bashes. These are a Staff Brigadier General and Colonel:

Hi Folks

as you'll recall I've been looking to give the the CH11- my original Childhood crew , some character . I've been a bit distracted by 1:1 life recently- my goodness work getting in the way  :p , but saw this and just had to get it .....

Black approaches Sailor ....

Black :"Hey Mate , have you got a moment ? "

Sailor: "Sure my old shipmate , whats up ?"

Black: " have you been able to recall your old Ship?"
Sailor : "No,... its  a real puzzle - even doing some hypnosis with Gunner 1.0 hasn't helped"

Black : "Well take a look at this and see what you think ?  "

Sailor: "I've already got my cap ???"

Sailor : "Yes !! a real identity -Brilliant "

Black " Yeah , Gunner saw this on a late night e-bay trawl and thought about Dreadnought over on UAMHQ and some of the ideas the guys on AMMO had &  thought that would make a brilliant Character name for you ! "

Sailor "Wow ! thats a cool nick name - I'll take that !!"

Black : "Brilliant!  That really looks the part - Dreadnought it is ! -Now them lets work on Gunner to give us a set off gripping hands each !"  Rolling Eyes

Dreadnought: "Yeah.. and  reflock on the old bald spot wouldn't go amiss either !!  cheers

So Kev over on UAMHQ  has "alter ego"  with the Munrovians  Laughing  
I think the  discussion we had about Shipwreck here sealed it- "Dreadnought" feels like a good old RN and ActionMan monicker…Next a change back to RN blues I think and that RN Landing party look pirat  lol!

Excellent choice! Go team Dreadnought!

It was Hank's ship as well as Spud's!
