There was a news item tonight about the launch on VE-Day this year of a range of modern military Action Man dolls (incidentally the item was fronted by a Crab with a day's growth but I suppose that's not un-officer-like in the RAF). There was only a very quick scan of what is intended but all were suitably warry and the set seems to include a Harrier loaded for bear. However (although there has been a sailor Action Man in square rig in the past) the RN seemed to be under-represented.

So, for this weekend's homework, please propose RN-type dolls for inclusion in the range, for instance a Chief Stoker? Dolls can of cousre be either sex but should include a comprehensive kit list etc.

btw there was included the usual bleat from some wetnik about not giving children ideas about war, guns etc. Yuk.

The Faye Tunny Coxswain doll, upon carrying out feasibility studies however it was found that the amount of plastic required to make a scale reproduction of her harris made this doll economically unviable.

The Daywear/ Nightwear Bootie this set includes a muscle bosun doll, a full set of CS95 (With all the bells and whistles), scale Green Lid made of a blob of plastic (As per original Action Man Commando doll) 2x scale roll mats for pre run ashore fun and games and for the evening wear a selection of Barbies finest couture.

And our special for Norman of Kiddiminster, the Lieutenant Commander fully kitted out with desk and mountain of paperwork and neg sea legs.
:lol:

I vote for a full life size Naval Nurse doll with "funtional bits"


Along the lines of these.

I got the QARNNS (nurse) I married one, but if its reality, how about a Jack doll.
Uniform in ribbons two days growth and smelling of spew and lager.
Could even have an egg banjo in one hand and a bottle in the other.

Does it come complete with golden blanket or is this an add-on item?

For the comms department of old, the bunting-tosser should, of course, be a sun-bronzed Adonis character while the sparker should be pale, wearing slippers, and carrying a pipe.
