Of course, "Action Man" is the UK version... in the US the figures are marketted under the brandname "GI Joe" (which was also a really crappy cartoon...).

But he has a much better chance of rescue with the SAS so we have to send the UK version in.

I dunno... I saw some "current" Action Man figures in a local supermarket... and he was on rollerblade. In fact, I'm pretty sure he was gay...

(I'm not even sure he had a fsckin' gun! When I was a kid it was all tanks and jeeps with bazookas and stuff!)

Pretty poor against terrorists I would have thought.

Unless thay have some secret rollerblade kick ass fu that nobody knows about.

Perhaps he skates up and threatens to redecorate?
