Seasons greetings new and old members :-)

Not really a purchase but I fixed up beaten broken death squad commander that had its head missing.

Customised it into a garidan the imperial spy.

I fixed the broken torso made a new neck post put on potf2 garindan head, resculpted its belt grafted on a gun holster given it a leg strap and of course made it a vinyl cape and a communicator accessory made by chopping up a nasty repro weapon. Repainted all the black with a nice gloss.

A popular old school custom
Love the Custom!
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

Cheers Cazza, any pics of the new MOC 👍😁
Here you go- Space Pilot. I'm trying to do the same as my SW, but getting every MOC I had as a kid. Only one to go now- Desert Rat, which is impossible to find and is crazy money. Have a cardback, so may so something with that instead ;)
Nice Christmas Present. I never realised Action Force was Action Man, I don’t remember having them as a kid were they available at the same time as Star Wars?
Thanks mate. Yeah, they came out in 1982, made by Palitoy. They eventually merged with GI Joe in the mid-eighties, after Hasbro bought out Palitoy. Loads of the designs were by the legendary Bob Brechin, who designed a tonne of Action Man stuff and the Palitoy Death Star. Some of the Death Star parts are shared with the Action Force HQ. The Series 1 figures were based on the best selling Action Man designs. Series 2 introduced various squads and the Enemy forces and had a comic that ran alongside. Absolutely loved them (up to Series 2) as a kid.
Collecting SW since 1980.

Awesome custom, mate! A figure that should've come out in the original line. Hopefully there will be a Retro Collection version at some stage...
