Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Here in the West we had James Bond et al, but in Comunist Czechoslovakia they had Major Zeman!

    "Major Zeman –the communist police hero of a TV saga shown in the normalization years following the crushing of the Prague Spring – is now available as a figurine for collectors complete with a machine gun, a badge and briefcase. The notorious propaganda series is still shown on Czech tv channels and has a strange, detached appeal as communist Czechoslovakia’s answer to James Bond. Vladimir Brabec, the actor who played the detective fighting subversive and criminal elements in communist Czechoslovakia is closely identified with this hero although he has played hundreds of other characters. Indeed, he was asked to act as godfather at the figurine’s sales launch earlier this month. Asked what he planned to do with the one he received as a gift Brabec laughed and said he’d give it to his grandchildren."

  2. Well? Should he take the money or open the box?
  3. Who are you, Michael Miles? :)

    The greatcoat (at least in some photos) looks like a good match for khaki - I might try and get a couple loose for my WW2 British figures.

  5. He has got a trigger finger though..unless they have modelled his arthritic right hand too.
  6. His facial expression looks like he just walked in on his missus getting spit roasted by GI Joe and Action Man.

  7. No Makarov. How are those suspected enemies of the revolution going to shoot themselves in the back of the head whilst escaping custody?
  8. Well if you put him in cowboy duds he'd be a spit for George W Bush.
