    Default Re: 1/6 did apollo 11 astronaut fiftieth anniversary

    I was able to pick up all three bases plus the interior section loose and they are beautiful. My plan is to upgrade my Dragon/DML figures utilizing the Armstrong and Aldrin ones.

    The bases are essential to making the figure displays classy.

    Edit: Ok they just sent me these two pics. Figured I'd share in case anyone else needs them.

    Congrats on getting them! I see the parts have almost completely vanished from TA...I assume they were pricey? I'm also curious do you remember what the original Dragon figures retailed for?

    I think it was around $60 bucks for "Buck". I picked up two in order to make one Armstrong and the other Aldrin but DML/Dragon ended up releasing an Aldrin figure as well. My plans have been to convert the extra Buck to Alan B. Shepard on Apollo 14. I've got the old conversion kit for that update.

    The bases were pricey but I think worth it.

    Keep in mind that the $60 bucks was back around 2003 or so.

    The bases look really beautiful but I do wish there was a separate diorama base available to display Armstrong and Aldrin together on the luna surface.

    SJ, you can match up the bases. They connect via magnets.

    Thanks I was just curious. Back then $60 was probably alot for a 1/6 figure. I wasn't collecting until years later.

    Yep, $60 bucks was steep at the time for a Dragon figure. Their releases were military figures selling for around $35 or so, if not mistaken.

    I remember when breaking $100 bucks for a figure was the financial line never to be crossed, by most collectors... Ah, the naivety of that time...

    FYI, Danoby2 on YouTube bought the set and has posted a review of Neil Armstrong

    I haven't assembled any of my figures yet but I have them in hand. The Danoby review should come in handy when putting them together. He came up with a nifty fix for the camera issue that has been brought up here using a small magnet and a small washer.
