Well I've been looking at cabinets, what I have in mind would easily house thirty and more, but this is a long term project something to do whilst I finish up the action force.

The cabinet I got was from Argos (£159) and at the moment has 31 AM in it. With room for some more.
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?

Hook, line and sinker. See. Its impossible to resist ANY action men, big or small. The Paul's have lead to my ruination. I have about 30 or so uniforms, Ed. All vintage and most in pretty good condition. The Heli pilot is my original VAM from around 1977.

Here's a tip, get Cotswald Gearbox figures, rip their heads of and install VAM heads then voila, instant cheap figures that are pretty authentic looking. A top tip from AMHQ. ;-) ATM they have 2 bods for $10. Oh and Ed, DO NOT check out Action Burt.

Me too. These guys will take up the same shelf space as 3 squads of AF. I will have to start a rotational system, using boxes. :-(

I was thinking I might just put a new shelf up tho. :-D

That's exactly what I was looking at, I measured up and roughly worked out how many I could fit in without it looking cluttered,

thanks for the tips Mr Chopper sir, I may have found an action man and action force source which needs to be investigated, which I'll be looking at on Sunday, fingers crossed for a result.
