-

Here's the last AM-AF comparison photo. All done now.

Of the 19 Palitoy figures in the Series 1, 17 of them were mostly based on existing Action Men.

Only Naval Assault [there was an AM Naval Assault but it bares no resemblance to the AF figure of the same name...] and Night Patrol had no larger Action Man connections.

And here's all 17:

Sorry Paul - I wont settle and sleep comfortably at night until you have made custom outfits of the Night Patrol and Naval Assault. It only seems fair??

(absolutely awesome pics, and loving the M&A in it's acylic casing!)

Ha! Cheers Steve.

You know the thought did cross my mind, and it wouldn't be very difficult to do.

Maybe I'll knock those 2 up in the new year....

That's an impressive collection and undertaking to complete it.

Naive question: are the AF figures a 1 to 1 match for their AM counterparts (e.g. there was an actual AM "2 Para"), or have you mixed and matched some costumes to make the AM versions?

If they are 1 to 1 then I never realised just how close the links between the two lines were, so this is great to see.

They are mostly 1 to 1 exact matches Monkfish.

I doctored a couple to make to match a little closer [red pilot], added a parachute backpack to the US Para, a radio backpack to the Commando, but its pretty much what it is.

Brilliant Paul totally Brilliant!

Would you have the dimensions for the bigger cases lying around? Everytime I measure something I always end up a mm or two short (all yours Steve!). I would love to get some of these for my Big MOC's
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
