I won these great metal action force castings, that were used as patterns.

However, I'm trying to work out which figures they are for...if any?

The legs look like German troopers, the body seems to be some sort of sailor, the head a German officer, and standard arms.

Any suggestions?

I also won the Captain Zargon heads...not cheap but I love em!

EArly Black Major perhaps? Or a Series 1 prototype that never made it - German Staff Officer / Panzer Captain???
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Thanks for sharing these pictures :-)

The webbing, on the sailor like torso, looks an awful lot like English WWI period gear.

I'd also say the head (& legs) looks like a German Officer, I remember seeing a picture of such a character Bob's presentation at RORC a couple of years back.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

The protos on the sprues such as the silent attsck and weapons pack, I thought were over priced for what they were, since they were identical to the production versions.. So the only difference was the COA saying they were first shots.. At least with SW figs true first shots lack copy right and are usually unpainted so stand out from production versions


I won both of these but returned the silent attack piece cause the certificate was not signed by Bob so as far as I could tell it was just a production piece. The weapons sprue was also not signed but the inclusion of the SW Snowtropper YPS gun I figured f*ck it, hang on to it.

Mama. German Staff officer and Navy. They would have to be series one based on original VAM figures. I guess they decided to limit the number of figures in the end. Bloody awesome.
