Having found myself well pissed last night reading a thread that was slagging off the airsoft brigade, I found myself wondering how many of the protagonists would be prepared to admit to still owning an action man, whilst having a pop at those who seek pleasure from wearing DPM and shooting each other with plastic ball bearings.

Here are mine. You can come out of the closet in this thread without shame. Come on. Show us your action men!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bast*ard,,,I wanted one but only got a Barbie & Ken (and they had no 'Bits' to play with)....

Never owned a single action man mate. In my time it was Star Wars & He-Man action figures. With dangerous rather robust little weapons perfect for poking oneself (or smaller siblings) in the eye.

Sorry to derail slightly - how many other folk collected "Pannini" '81 stickers?







Edited to add: I do like your Para with the puttees though.

so you like playing with dolls dressed as soldiers, are you a walt in disguise?
Fuck me. First reply and its abuse. I take it you secretly have an Action Man but are seeking to cover your tracks by diverting attention onto others whilst you dress him up and play with him in the privacy of your own room. Go on............admit it. You've got one but are shy

Erm, yes, me. Mainly Dragon Models and DiD.

If you want to see the hobby taken to the Nth degree have a look at the Von Abt website - they have some amazing stuff there. What's evven more amazing is that Peter Shaw, who has built a 1/6th Dora railway gun and U-boat pen amongst other things, is well past 70.

Tony Barton's website is also excellent.

I wish I had a downs Syndrome doll when I was younger. Apparently they come with super human strength

Action Man was kool. Though his facial expression was one of a chap who'd just been told that his favourite Combat Spoon had been regularly skiffed by Fat Bob, he gave hours of harmless fun to developing border-line sociopaths like wot I was. With him in my dirt-encrusted fingers, I was able to sort out the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler AND do bad things to a French convent.

Sadly, none of mine survived first contact with a BSA .177 and liberal application of Dad's lighter fuel.

never owned an "action man" so your point seems to have ended.
your the one who has come out, do you play with dolls still whilst grooming your victims?

by the way this is the naafi so what else did you expect;-)

Cock-all to do with this thread, but PDD, run your signature through a spell-checker, would you?

When I was a young boy, it was Tommy Gunn. I just looked on ebay and those things are worth a small fortune. Same old story. I wish I knew then what I know now.

By the way Ipod nano's are for girls

For those way too young to appreciate these educational action figures. The full details are available at Action Man HQ, Action Man, The real enthusiats still have the literature too. Of course the really dedicated geeks have it memorised...

I should have added - this is not a staged shot by a bloke who likes playing with dolls dressed as soldiers. These were my last remaining possessions in the motor having filled it and emptied it half a dozen times when I walked away from 15 years of marriage to a complete head the ball. Having emptied the motor apart from these, I thought that looks quite amusing so I took a snap with the phone camera.
