I try not to blame him for too much. Doesn't seem to work. I blame the baron. Or dave tree. Or a crap day at the office. Or obsessive colleptimania. Or I just don't mention it and get stuff delivered to work once the excuses have ran out! :-D

nice collection chopper! that tank looks familiar ;-)

when i restored my original Action Man i didn't think i would by any more due to the size but so far i have my original vintage Eagle Eyes, 2 SAS Key figures, 1 Parachute Attack SAS Figure and just got a Talking Commander this week :roll: plus i think i may have scored a rather good bargain earlier today on ebay of vintage Action Man Figures, i think i may have the AM Collecting Bug ;-)

all my stuff is packed away at the moment as im moving in june but i hope to get my collection photographed when im sorted and post a few pics.

I'm loving the greek goddess, Paul. my son thinks its cool too.

As for AM, I look at it like this, Action Force IS Action Man so its really the same habit. :mrgreen: GI Joe is also Action Man because the series 1.5 figures were released down under with AM packaging. There ya go. Was that reasonable? :.

I don't think I will get many more figures, I try to stick to TOLTOYs and they are rare on evilbay. I've never seen one in an op shop either. Look forward to seeing your pics, mate.
