He is a real-life action hero who has helped rescue people from some of the UK's most treacherous mountains.
But Sgt Ed Griffiths says being the inspiration for an Action Man-style figure rates as one of the best experiences of his career.
The Navy has a Royal Marine Commando, a Royal Navy diver and a Commando with canoe. The Army has an infantryman, a mortar man and fully armoured infantryman, and the RAF has a Falcons parachutist, a fast jet pilot, and a winchman.

I bought the Royal Marine (with the canoe) last week in Argos for my mates sons 3rd birthday.
He's already named him Sergeant "something or other" (I can't remember).
Not as good as the original Action Man IMO.

It's not mine honest!
His green camouflage stood out too much on our carpet.
I'm gonna get the Army Mortar Man in Desert camo instead. :wink:

The Royal Marine doll should come equipped with iPod and burqa.

DT item which I am too mong to embed says developed by MOD. So, why did they not negotiate a cut from the profits to go to, say H4H? If the makers paid for a licence, will any of that go to Forces charities or into new desks and armchairs for Hooray Henries?
 
#17
the charity if any i think it donates to is the ABF in current climate i think that an offering to H4H would be a nice gesture

There is an RAF Regiment "action figure"... They aren't selling it though because it's slipping one to Barbie... It comes with curtains too so he can clean up. :D
