Actually, it was brought to my attention by Felicity Holdom over on the Sideburn FACEBOOK page....thanks!! As a sidenote...I actually own the S.I.D. Doll that this company produced
Are we entering a parallel universe?????????
Is it weird to sometimes really miss your Action Men? Poor old Bobby, resigned to a desk job after a nasty leg break sustained in a botched Red Devils parachute jump from my bedroom window, later kidnapped and burned to death in a barn. Then Johnny, who, ahem, burned to death in his armoured car round the back of the shed. Yes, there is a theme.
With regard to vintage ACTION MAN (G.I. JOE in the US) I have a collection of approx 100... picked up at car boot sales in the late 80's...ranging from 'Painted heads' 'Fuzzy heads' and a few 'Eagle eyes'.Remember, "Old soldiers never die...your mum just throws them away..."
Let me assure you Dave, mine died. Bobby brunette fuzzy-head hard-hands and Johnny blonde fuzzy-head gripping hands. Yeah, gripping hands let you down, eh Johnny? They were the first to melt.
Mick P, I bet, after a hard day's internet 'research' there are day's your gripping hands are close to melting, eh?G
The speed they flash across this keyboard you mean? Too bloody right. Of course, for my furious wanking I always use adequate lubrication.
When the EVEL KNIEVEL toy craze hit in '76-ish, we used to nick the figures out of the boxes and come up with more and more interesting ways to destroy them.Starting with simple methods such as throwing them under buses, off multi-stories Etc. but then quickly moving on to sellotaping them to big fireworks and rockets.My mate took it to another level however, when he fried one in a pan on the stove...like an egg!
Dave did it never cross your mind that all these act of violence with your EK dolls might be acting as Voodoo on the real man & thats why he suffered so many injuries over his career?BP
Yeah, like the disastrous Santa Fe Giant Skillet leap on the 'fish slice' XR. Almost poached to death.
