After watching this video about a badass Scotsman in the SAS, I decided that I had to have an Action Man SAS figure.

Gunner Munro happily obliged me and is sending this chap (Pete is his Munrovian name) out shortly.

Those pictures were taken by him, the tablet isn't included, but a first issue Flash Hood (found after the photo session) will be!

I'm super excited to get this parcel in a couple of weeks (darned international shipping  Evil or Very Mad )!

Thank you Gunner, he will be loved, photographed, given an AY name and dossier (with nods to both Gunner Munro and the original name "Pete"), and he will go on new missions and see new and exciting territories.


This figure will also be my first real VAM, as opposed to VAM40, and also my first EE figure, Joe, AM or otherwise!

I'm super excited!!!!  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

Yes, gunner says the joints are tight, and the head is still attached by original means.

But I don't think so, Delivery Day is usually the USPS Estimate + 1.


(And it doesn't say "Out for Delivery," it seems like it's going through one last checkpoint in my City's main post office)

Extra surprise bits, handy smoke grenades, radio, torch, kneepads and binocs.

A very nice figure, and the free bits will come in handy I'm sure for assorted SAS and SOS Ops. Thank you Gunner, and Cheers! cheers cheers

The guys popping the bubble wrap in the background are hilarious!

That knife pic is creepy-cool!

Outstanding arrival... and as we know, he quickly rose in the ranks!
