    I'll let you know tomorrow when I've gone and bought one... er, for my nephew.
  4. a rubbish upgrade that, i have an original one, in blond-unshaven-scruffy-git issue.

    still got it too :D
  5. Still got mine too. ...... With realistic scar!
    I can't remember the originals in a Blues and Royals or 17th/21st fancy dress though!
  6. M1 Rifle? M60? Might as well buy GI Joe and have done with it.
  7. Is the SLR elephant gun not good enough for you??? :wink:
  8. I got the SAS one for my boy - he is only two but the Mrs started talking about getting him a play kitchen so I thought he needed to h*rden the f*ck up. There are lots on EBay which seem to make very good money.
  9. I think I've just done a little sex wee
  10. I got given The Scots Guards Action Man For Christmas 1977,complete with bearskin,bulled boots(With laces!)white belt,ect.I f ucking hated it,I wanted the Australian jungle fighter.
    I heard somwhere that this is the most sought after Action Man uniform,worth over £100 now.
    Mind you,it was better than "The Adventurer" or "Joe Stone"
  11. Does the Man United model come in George Best mode?

    Champagne tower, a feast of Barbie/Cindy groupies and a shagged out liver?
  12. I remember as a kid that my action man (Nato model) `58 pattern, SLR etc, would have bayonet practice on my brothers Stretch Armstrong :twisted:
  13. Got the Astronaut one for my birthday in 1970 (actually the suit for the figure), vaguely remember my brother getting one with some kind of WWII Commando outfit and a wheeled vehicle of some sort. Don't remember any football Action Men though.

    There is a dolls shop in York that does them (just round the corner of Monk Bar models for the Yorkies)
    Also toy fairs are a good place to get them in the '70's he did have all sorts of uniforms and kit I had a gazzelle and a scorpion for mine

    Evel Keneval met an un-timely end trying to jump our kids Bedford, very sad
