I reckon there are days when a weary Action Man strips off his orange lycra and kicks his rollerblades into the corner after a hard days marketing - he lights up a Woodbine and nips up to the allotment to sit in his shed fondling his secret stash of commando knives, SS Officer boots and german stick grenades....

Oh for the days when the only camp accessory was the mounties outfit.....

Yeah, I'm surprised there isn't a "Pop Idol" Action man variant, or a "Strictly Ballroom" one.

I always wanted an Action Man "Conscientious Objector" outfit/pack. Y'know, where he runs off to Canada and becomes a forest fire-watcher. You'd get a cassette of Neil Young, Buffallo Springfield songs, to go with the plaid shirt and hiking boots. Maybe a miniature copy of a Keruoac book and a bong.

Yeah, that Mounties one was extremely camp, in retrospect. Stick greandes, how great are they? But we're not allowed to say that any more, 'cause it glamorises Fascism, etc.

Ha, yeah...I imagine Action man in his shed, listening to Motorhead and Saxon cassettes (Lemmy, another closet nazi - LOL!), fetishising over his Nazi memorabilia and trying to be 'manly'...he waves over to Tommy Gunn on the next allotment, with greying temples and rheumatism, etc...they'd like to sneak off for a crafty pint together at the British Legion, but they've got to take their wives to Asda at 1:00 'cause the grandkids are coming over later for a bar-b-que...

"greandes" - sounds like a make of french brandy...(they should have made tiny bottles of schnapps and looted art-treasures to go with the action man German soldier)...I think I meant "grenades"...LOL!

i can't believe none of you have given a thought to the fact that he's got meningitis - i mean, is it viral or (gulp! yikes! etc) bacterial? And is it a coincidence that the old school one comes back and immediately seems to have contracted a life-threatening disease... i'm checking my old Action Men feet right now and preparing for a mercy dash... oh shit, i think Atomic Man's got the flaming buboes!!

Do 'Action Figures' get sick..do toys have a soul, a sex-life...?

Just a few of the Big Issues that we like to discuss here on Kid Shirt.

I always thought it would be cool if the Action man diver got The Bends (or Oxygen Pete!) - they shoulda made a decompression chamber that he could rest up in!
