I've been hunting for Action Man at car boot sales since 2009, so I will update here when I can. These files are now smaller jpeg files, so should load faster..



























The figure in the last photo is a talking Ultra Corps figure, it also has loud sound effects built in with the speech. This is just a tiny amount that I have found over the years. Because I don't do online buying I have to go hunting for my figures at Boot sales and in charity shops, it's the hard way to collect but worth it. The trouble is, if I had paypal I would probably be skint all the time.

There's a lot more to take pictures of, I hope to post some more when I get time, including a complete MAM stealth Bomber plane I found for £10, plus all my Rhino jeeps and other MAM vehicles Smile

Some of my posts above are not in the correct order (The dates), there's so many images to sort through.

Nearly all my modern Action Man collection came from car boot sales and charity shops, it's the cheapest way to collect, I've only shown a small portion above of what I've found. Trying to neatly store it all is a never ending story for me, I'm still in the process of tubbing up the remaining loose items. The trouble with storing stuff in cardboard boxes is they eventually collapse under the weight of boxes stacked on top, so the ideal thing to do is buy the large see-through plastic tubs from "Homebase" or "Staples" of 65 litre size and upwards, then store your figures in them standing upright. The tubs are a good investment and can be neatly stacked up to the ceiling in rows in your MAM storeroom.

Car boot sale finds for April 2014, these were all found at one morning event:


















Since i took these pictures i managed to find another 1/6 scale working RC quad bike in a orange colour, they can be raced around the garden, which is good fun, I also like doing a demolition derby session with them. There's plenty more to come at a later time..

A few more finds:
















I have found about 15 Action Man Rhino jeeps since i took the picture above, some are fully complete with missiles.. The black coloured motorbike above is a Max Steel one. More to come later...

My boot sale finds above is only a small portion of what I've found in the past, there's about 5/6 more G.I.Joe/Action Man carded Navy Shore Patrol sets, carded Action man figures, a whole bundle of Rhino jeeps (14?), plus a F1 grand prix racer (1 of 2), a few silver speeder cars, rally cars, hundreds of Action man figures, Max Steel, another Action Man motor bike (boxed red colour) and loose outfits and equipment. It will take a lot of effort to get photos done of it all and i will update here when i can. The problem with car boot sales these days is, the pro toy hunters are now targeting 1990's/2000's Action Man, the toy is getting much harder to find, I knew this would happen years ago so i got stuck in hard and fast collecting it before they did, at least i had a head start by 9 years cheers

amwic @ I love bank holidays 2018.
