While I don't have an official VAM USMC Uniform set, I've got something pretty close: Classic Collection Marine Corps Uniform(s). This one was lifted from my Navajo Code Talker. Pretty sure I've got another one at my Parents' house from the Invasion on Inchon.

As a Yank, I expected to see some variation of this!

I actually have one of the Marine uniforms in question, but I split it up between two of my figures. You can just make out the light green collar under this para's Denison Smock:

While the trousers are being worn by my MB Adventurer:

Very nice Action yankee , i think the camo helmet works well with this uniform .
The rolled up sleeves and open shirt also adds a look fighting in the heat .

Yes Nate , i can just see the shirt under your para jacket .
As regards to the camo fatigues this is a different uniform all together , i think its called beachhead assault in the UK .

Cheers guys for the posts

He looks great! The green uniform green helmet and M1928 Tommy Gun makes him look like an early war marine; maybe on Guadalcanal!
