Just arrived this morning.

He's in great condition apart from his hands..which I have replacements ordered.
His body and head have no marks or scratches....
His uniform is excellent and his beret look like brand new..
I will shortly be putting him back together....so watch this space...

He looks in top condition Dean. Very Happy

A restring and he'll be good as new.

One of my all time favourite figures.
I remember vividly getting one from my uncle for Christmas in the late seventies. Very Happy

It went the way of all my childhood Action Man sadly. Sad

There's a few nice reproduction boxes on Fleabay too for Tom Stone.
Did you get a nice deal on the repro grippers?

A great pick up Dean! He looks in great nick! I would recommend 2mm bungee cord that can be doubled through his joints. Looking forward to seeing him in action!

I think I'll have to get some. 2mm cord as the one I have is a bit thick...

It's the bloody postage they charge that kills me. Mad

Hopefully one of the few figures I will keep for posterity . I had four Tom Stone`s not so long ago , but down to my last one now . Had one as a kid , was definitely a fave .

Captain Kobina agrees with the lads Dean ,

Tom stones arrived ..!! IMG_6496Tom stones arrived ..!! Fullsizeoutput_349

An excellent figure and with all the key kit too Very Happy Very Happy

I picked up my Tom Stone in a bundle in the 80's then forgot about him, as his arms had dropped off and he too hand no hands- I got mine from Hobby Crash .

I'm afraid he was one figure I fixed up before I discovered the UAMQ & Ammo forum so some of the repairs are a bit amateurish Embarassed Embarassed
