I’ve bought a couple of uniforms this week , I said they would be my last as I have all I want at the moment .
So why oh why did I buy a captain zargon figure on eBay.. I have no interest in the space figures .
Put on eBay this afternoon there was two minutes to go ..captain zargon £16 ..” that’s cheap”. I thought two minutes later £18 it’s mine ,..
Why did I buy it ..why

Who knows?? lol! but we do these crazy things! When I was a kid, my mate Paul had a zargon figure and he hated it! but me and him were big comic fans, and in one particular comic (DC if memory serves me) was a character called G.I.Robot and he turned his zargon figure into that! lol!

Fantastic!

and of course Slack used Zargon figures to make a German special forces unit

Rusty,

It's because you have a Hoarding disorder like me, the space figures will eventually grow on you, they are cool items to own and part of Action Man history.. Thanks for jogging my memory, I know i have a Zargon figure somewhere in my boxes, figures come in then get boxed up and never to be seen again, like today at a boot sale I found another MAM comic in nice nick at 50p, I already have it but just couldn't pass on it, but I did pass on a Dr. X robot (the ice is cracking a bit here) I have too many of them.

That’s fabulous news to see that you’ve started to go to car boot sales once again Clive. I’m proud of you my swapping buddy.

Hi Dean
I've only been doing this a few months (Ok a couple of years ) and I've found late night e-bay my weak point lol! lol!

Lots of uncontrolled twitching of fingers too near the bid button lol! - My New Years resolution was an e-bay dry jan.. lasted 10 days then cracked Twisted Evil

I do have a Zargon - complete with box and all his gear . I picked him up in a toy shop when they were being discontinued way back before the condition Clive refers too became Chronic lol! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes - He went into the loft .

If I knew then what I know now... there were boxes of them - we could have had a platoon of Slack ZargonPioneers Shocked Shocked
