Hello Guest

 


Where are those Skyraiders you promised me?
Description: Takhli Royal Thai Air Force Base, 1964: Lt. Col. Joe Colton coordinates air support for his Green Beret A-Teams on the ground in South Vietnam. It's a little spooky that these USAF pilots all look alike, but as a member of an ultra-top-secret program himself, Colton's not going to ask any awkward questions. (I like to imagine there's some shady plastic surgeon involved, who eventually hooks up with CC to create the Fred Series.)

I just realized that the KB Exclusive Action Pilot has the same problem as Hardtop, where his lower arms discolor faster than the rest of his body. Usually it's the reverse, but not on these two light blue figures.

I really like shots like this that take place in the 60's and 70's! Really makes me wish I had a bigger collection of these 30th Anniversary guys.

That's a shame those pilots are discoloring. Something about blue plastic seems to make it more prone to discoloring than any other color.

My blue Action Pilot started yellowing on the chest and legs.  That's a bummer as the cheap sets seem to be gone, now.
