    UK Collectors

    I've just returned from the States with quite a few figures and vehicles from KB Toys and TRU however upon my return to the UK I can't seem to find any here. Have Hasbro stopped supplying them in the UK/Europe?

    Please can someone point me in the direction of some UK suppliers that I can contact?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I dont think theres any left, you can find the odd toy in poundstretchers/Instore and places similar to that but thats it really.

    Thanks for that, I thought that may be the case.

    Are there any UK online dealers that you can recommend?

    There seem to be quite a few US dealers, but I'm not sure about customs charges. It could make any purchases I make very expensive.

    None that I know of.

    I always order under 100 bucks so I never have any troubles with customs or I deal with friends so its down as a gift.

    I've found buying new from the uk ebay is actually dearer that buying from the states even when you factor in shipping.

    Ie I can pick up a VvV pack for around $5-7 when over here I've seen them on ebay for £9.99

    Well, most of the stuff on UK Ebay seems to be very expensive.

    Thanks for the advice, I think that I'll make up an order of around $50 to start with and see how I get on. Do you have any pointers on who I should try?

    Thanks again, sorry to be a pain.

    And Now...

    ..Hello Guys..
    I got to thinking about the Action Force Team members.. and how the team changed when JOE came on the scene in the late 80's.

    I plan on collecting just selective stuff from the AF range. The reason I moved onto Action Force in 87 from Star Wars was primarily the Swivel Arm Battle because of this I know for sure I wont be buying into the Ironblood figures and the very early straight arm and straight leg dudes.
    For this reason I also wont be collecting the Straight Arm 82 figures from Joe either.

    However I think when I finally get my joe verse running.. I will use my JOE team to defend american soil and the Action Force team to defend Europe.. excluding Russia.. which will be dealt with by the Oktober Guard ..

    Having given this some thought.. I was wondering what AF's original setup was..Who was the actual leader in the UK?
    I know with the earlier figures.. from what I can tell.. they had Q-Force and SAS.. who was there overall commander?
    Also I'd like help with Identifying the MOS.. for the other figures.. the information on Yojoe is sparse where the UK stuff is concerned.. or am I to assume that the Figure came with a vehicle and thats there only operating speciality?
    For Instance.. Blades came with the SAS Helicopter.. so I am to assume he is a Helicopter Pilot.. but theres no Filecard links on yojoe.. theres countless others too.. such as Dolphin, Moondancer & Hunter..
    Many thanks for any help

    Fans of Military Aircraft I recommend watching This program.

    Its on tomorrow on the Discovery Wings Channel at 18:00PM in the evening and its repeated again at 22:00 tomorrows program focuses on the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the Mig 21.

    I just thought I'd refer this to those that have an interest in the Military Aircraft.
    Bye For Now
