I feel soooo lonely over this side of the planet. I'll have to change my name to Kim jong Il.

Hopefully this will go well, fellers (and fellesse). I'd imagine the after party will be a rip snorter in any case.

As I've said privately guys - I will gladly support this in any way I can, and whether it gets off the ground or not, I'd like to publicly say thanks for the efforts in looking into it thus far.

Knowing the little that I do so far I know it would potentially be awesome!

I've been working pretty hard in the background on this, hence a lot of the questions/ polls.


Dave.

to minimise loss of money and have any hope in recouping costs, the show needs to be a little more. As much as I'd love to do a dedicated AF show, who would hands on heart actually turn up? We be lucky to hit 20 people from here (call it £5 for entry, £100 would contribute about 5% of the expected costs). The more niche the show, the less likely you'll attract the passer by. The new GI JOE film is what will help draw paople in, as would vintage Action Man and 90's Action Man, they are all inter-related so they have a better chance of appealing to a wider audience and in turn introduce them to the AF line if they have yet to to discover/ rediscover it.
.
exactly , we got to tap the Action Man ( both Generations ) and the GI JOE crowd and this movie is a good time to strike out with this.

I also believe that if something like this can get off the ground and is supported all round, the more chance you'll have of Hasbro taking notice of the UK and elements like the Red Shadows.

Dave.

again 100 percent agree on this. bigger chance of hasbro taking notice of the Red Shadows
