40th Hands Melting Vintage Plastic!

Hi all . . . sorry it's been a while! It's also been quite a while since I looked at my Vintage Action Men (stuff cluttering up the display cabinets meant I couldn't get inside).

Re: Treasure Trove!!!

. . . I know of one ex-Palitoy employee who has passed some items to Vectis. I know he had a lot of MOC and MIB Action Force, as well as Action Man, so perhaps you'll see those in the upcoming auction.

Re: New Prototype figures

Very nice, but these are really first or test shots and not prototypes as such. They are mouldings from to decide whether a final production figure and it's moulds will work.

Re: Bob Brechin talk at Snibston Discovery Museum this Thurs

Yes T'shot, I'll be there and would be great to see you. It should be interesting and will cover a good overview of both Palitoy's innovations across their toy ranges (from the start as Cascelloid) and the technology that assisted the company. This annual series of talks is generally a low key affai...
