I know i can't speak for everyone but for me the best era of BAF was the Z-Force,SAS Force etc... & the early days of the Action Force team led by Duke,so i would like to see those figures.I always thought the personalities of the English version was more realistic,such as the likes of Ripcord being ex Parachute Regiment and Recondo being ex SASR.It just made it a bigger concept that someone no-matter where they came from could identify with.

As i am no longer into collecting 3/34" figures,i much prefer the figures made by Dragon,BBI,DID etc....
i would like to see 12" figures of the early AF teams.With the 40th Anniversary Action Man releases being made by DID for Hasbro surely they could do the same for AF.These figures could be made to
a collectors standard than mere toys.I would like other members opinions on this.

Thanks

Hey, I was sitting here when it hit me!

This a piece made by fans for fans. I dont know if it has Takara or Hasbro's blessings (I really doubt Hasbro would let this happen but I'm unsure about Takara). So it seems it would be possible for fans to make and sculpt figures very reminiscent.. well strait design copys of originals.

Also heres the only figure I know with a Gas Masks

yes I mentioned this the other day !!! theyre the same ones that are making the Roller of Optimus prime ( which can now transform ) and the WST dinobots

We should contact them and see if they can do something for Action Force as well

dont give up on Alyosha but these guys would be good ones to contact too!

( whos taking up that Alyosha thing? I would be like I said he doesnt answer me-- long story there fellas ! )

thats a cool fig but the case with the gun is fantastic. if someone can find 1 and wants it just for the mask i'd be willing to put a few quid in just for the case and rifle
