    Just picked this up for a tenner in a charity shop. Not exactly Mint In Box, but I'm not exactly a Mint In Box kind of person (i.e. I will be removing Pierce in order to place him in silly poses).

    I had some Action Man figures when I was a kid. Didn't know there were Bond ones!

    I do believe there was a TWINE Action Man, as well, garbed in his Russian Nuclear Outfit. I always thought that the 90's Action Men, had a certain Brosnan-esque quality to him.

    Didn't know where to post this -

    I can't believe I missed out on these back then, being in the target age group and all. Agree re. the looks; they kinda looked a little bit like Brosnan.

    The one I have looks as if he's designed to be Bond rather than one of the actors; he's got the scar and the stray lock of hair. I guess this meant they could use the same head for the Connery, Moore and Brosnan movie guys!

    Of the AMs they made , the GE figure seems the rarest

    All the Action Man figures I had back then had a similar scar and stray locks of hair, if I remember correctly.

    Maybe so! Here's the typical look the figures I remember had:

    @Agent_99 You picked up that Action Man figure for an absolute bargain.

    I have the TSWLM one with Bond in the yellow ski suit. With the goggles on, he can kinda pass for Roger. Examples here:

    Oh, yeah, the mouth is quite Rog if you cover up the whole upper part of his face :)

    I see there's a GoldenEye one too. I've put together an army surplus GE outfit for myself - it would be fun to have a matching doll!

    (Come on, they're clearly dolls.)

    I've had the YOLT action man for quite a few years. Unfortunately the box has perished and he seems to have lost his Walther....

    @Thunderfinger & @00Agent Many thanks guys, glad you like the pics.

    I didn't realize just how much LTK stuff I had - I think the one film which I have more props from is CR. Looking forward to seeing what goodies B25 provides!

    I can do way small - just ask any of my exes!

    Of course! I like to trim the hedge before it gets out of hand ;)

    Hi @Kananga,

    You can buy the screen accurate deck without logos, as I have here in these photos:

    Thanks! I will be keeping a lookout for them, it's the first time collecting on-screen items for me.

    I'm gonna have a good look through this thread later to see what you guys have got. I'll love looking at your collections - but I've got to say I don't have a massive collection of stuff of my own. Mainly because I'm not a big memorabilia kind of guy. Having said that here is the stuff I HAVE got.

    Used to have Dr. No to TWINE on VHS.
    Dr No to SF on DVD
    Dr No to Spectre on Blu-Ray.
    Every single book by every author (keeping hold of them in case the kids take an interest when they're older).
    Every soundtrack album on CD (including a compilation and the David Arnold Shaken And Stirred one)
    A few of the videogames on various consoles.
    A few of the coffee table books (really outdated though. One's got Roger Moore's signature in it)
    A couple of non fiction books
    A mug (someone bought it for me as a present)
    A deck of playing cards (again, a present - still unopened)
    A Trivial Pursuit add on pack (OK, I did treat myself to that one)

    If I think of anything I've missed I'll come in and do an edit later but I think that's it. Nothing worth taking a picture of.

    Like I say - if I'm a fan of a film or something - just owning the actual film itself is enough for me most times.

    No need to apologise my friend, just enjoy having a snoop around! B-) :-bd

    I LOVE it when other people do this stuff though. I just don't have the discipline.

    I'm very much a story guy I guess. I was the same way with Star Wars when I was a kid. My mates would have their room covered in SW memorabilia. And I'd find it fun to look at when I was chilling at their place...
    But what I'd get for myself were things like books and comic books - and I would actually sit and read them. You know, Timothy Zahn and all that. Just trying to repeat the high of the story I fell in love with.
    It's the same with Bond. A Bond magazine comes out with toy cars you can collect? Not my bag.
    But if YOU'VE got that car collection? Stick the kettle on cause I'll be round in five minutes to have a nose! Might even take a picture...

    It's when another novel or something comes out that I get excited.

    Thank you all! Not sure where to source bookends but the maker is 'Balvi'.

    I also scored this, from a friend who picked it up at Worldcon for me:
