They make a great mail box stand too.
OK, they are dolls, but they have kung fu grip! and weapons.

No worries. I guess my efforts to build the brand apart from being me has been successful!

I'm in the 'burbs - an MG wouldn't do. I have a small cannon on the front porch so that works.

The gun is deactivated so no plans to shoot it. I will take some more photos this weekend. It has been a whirlwind since SOS. The week went by far too fast as I'm sure James, Gus, Brian, Amy and others can attest. I arrived home on Saturday, moved the MG08 to my collectible room and barely have had a minute to enjoy it.

I've been back in the salt mines working nonstop (gotta pay for this stuff some how). But come Saturday I plan to really rest and spend time with my new purchase.

No shooting, I’m crushed. And only slightly less jealous.

I didn't think it was right to have an MG08 and NOT have an MG08/15 to go with it. This just arrived on Friday (thank you to Gus for the help in finding it).

My collectible room is filled so I figured it would be good to just display it in the garden for now.

That is what it has. I'll seek out a more correct replacement, but I'm sure this would be an impossibility.

I wish the display "bunker" kept growing. It is getting more crowded! When I'm asked what I need for the collection in 2020... my answer "more space!"

There are a lot of reproductions of the 08/15 booster, the reproductions have an angular edge on the front of the shroud, while the originals are rounded, although I did see a photo of a recent reproduction that was exact.
