THE PUPPETS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM...
I like to collect all things Gerry Anderson-related. Here are some simple, customised 12" action figures I have. All aquired very cheaply at car boot sales. We have:
Joe 90 dressed in a Captain Scarlet uniform.
Brains in the International Rescue uniform.
Barbie dressed in a Captain Blue uniform.
I have a ton of Anderson memorabilia but these cheap, simply customised dolls from the 90's are very pleasing to my eye!
I think it's the 'What if?' factor of mixing up elements of the different shows.....I think they look better than any of the standard issue figures released at that time.
