Pandora has a bit of a Fallout theme as I plan to use her and the minions across genre's

Check out my blog there are some other pics there as well as some KKBB stuff plus my Artizan guards

I hate painting eyes btw and are hit n miss on my figures

Thanks guys. I have to admit I don't know who half the characters are based on. Some are obvious like Captain Scarlet etc but I have no idea about the stories behind them.

At the moment i'm downloading the original series of 'The Prisoner' But the man from 2000 is he out that same series? What about Pandora King what is she from?

Any pointers for background would be greatly appreciated

The Man from 2000 is based upon Commander Ed Straker from UFO, Pandora King is Mrs Peel (as played by Diana Rigg in the Avengers)

Don't by an original Dinky, not very nice looking and too expensive.

There was a debate in another thread about such things, the Metal Product Enterprises SPV is (in theory) the correct size - however the Plastic soundtech SPV (which is bigger) looks better.

Watch out as there are a few versions out there (Corgi, Dinky, etc).

I've got a Corgi SPV and Rhino from before I started collecting for 7TV and they are more suited to 20mm IMO.

However, the Dinky versions are 1/43 or 1/44 (depending on which site you go to).

I have a Patrol Car and a Max Security Vehicle and they look great (again IMO) with Crooked Dice's figures.

Strictly speaking 1/43 is a bigger scale than the figures but I prefer my vehicles slightly larger than true scale and once the figures are on Slotta bases they look cool next to them.

The problem you do have with the Dinky vehicles is the price. To get a mint vehicle you are talking silly money.

I bought both of mine as damaged and paint chipped. I took them apart re-painted the vehicle body and made slight repairs on the suspension of the Patrol Car and they're sorted.

Once I've painted up my TLS figures I'll put some pics up for scale for the Patrol car.

I hope you meant THE ORIGINAL Series, not the (frankly slow and boring) remake.

I love Arrival, it asks so many questions of the viewer.

UFO
Blakes 7

You have the aforementioned, great place to start.

Department S
Jason King
Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)
Strange Report
Adam Adamant
The Champions
The Prisoner
The Saint
Return Of The Saint
The Man from UNCLE
The Avengers

Optional (but fun)

It Takes A Thief (Robert Wagner as a Jewel Thief turned Secret Agent - great series)
Saphire & Steel
The Tomorrow People
