the only part of dodger i'd use is his lower legs, he's such a weird looking figure!

I'm yet to find anywhere that stocks vintage GI Joe or Action Force in London. If anyone does know somewhere let us all know!
so they sell some old figs then?
This is the one they have for £6 in Forbidden Planet:

Oh sorry man. If I get into town again this week I'll make a special detour and pick him up for you.

They also have a reasonable stock of Star Wars figures on sale if you like that stuff.

Spooky. I was in Forbidden Planet today.
I had a brief moment when I thought they'd pulled all the GI Joe stuff and replaced it with some vampire malarky. It was alright though they just moved it round the corner.
Almost bought something. Went to the Marquis de Grandby round the corner and had a couple of pints instead.
My kind of Afternoon!

Oh bollocks! If only I'd known! We could have gone to the pub and impressed all the women with our knowledge of vintage toys. Man, they would have lapped it up I'm sure.

I must admit, I really want the bloody great big Millennium Falcon they have in the side window.
