Re: Action Force Member

Think I was a bit too old when I joined up. The filecard came with a figure (as per the picture on it so you had your very own mini me!) a letter from Hawk welcoming me to the Action Force Special Corps and a flexi disc. Still got the letter and flexidisc but the figure is long gone... I loved the a...

Continuity errors and the like

Prompted by my queries on the practicalities of firing guns 'wrong handed' ( http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2282 ) I've started noticing joes holding guns with different hands from one frame to the next... Anyone noticed any other continuity errors from frame to frame in...

Re: Action Force Ownership

it might not be that mad an idea.. well not millionaire winner mad... rapid prototyping isn't the same as full on mass production this article is a reasonable introduction:

Re: Action Force Ownership

not given this much thought but a quick google for 'low volume injection moulding' yields a few firms that do rapid prototyping. I'm pretty sure if we could produce a cad solid model of some figure components a firm could produce some tooling and produce moulded components the finishing and assembly...

Re: Battle AF grit in the joe universe

OK I'll assume no-one has a clue what I'm on about! I'll try again, some common elements in my fave stories; 1. decent 'believable' mission (e.g. beaver's cousin being found dead with a message for action force at the start of codename beaver) 2. realistic-ish military operating procedure (that soun...

Re: The Action Force Cannon...

I wonder if the plastic itself was cheaper for those ammo and detonator things, or maybe they where incorporated on to another mould and where produced 'for free' as a by-product. I'm sure it must have been cost, "we'll add these bits of tat to make it seem like better value"... the softer plastic i...

The Action Force Cannon...

the big fat jobby that came with most of the vehicles: zjeep05[1].jpg So if this was real (or a more realistic moulding) what would it be? I never understood why all the other bits of kit where pretty realistic and this looked so pants. On the pants accessories side just remebered the ammo cases and...
