Description: I asked my wife, who is in to dolls, to look around for some tough guy action man - this is what she got.

On seeing the tough and rugged Working Captain in the Captain topic I asked my wife who is into dolls to keep an eye out for any tough, hard bitten, hard case Action men. This is what she got.

You have to look at "Action Figuires" since we all know boys do not play with dolls. If you look at Ebay they have old GI-JOE action figures and such, 12" size. I aqquired two figures or Orville and Wilbur Wright which look good with my steam launch. I change the figures to two sailors and a Lt and then it is a Navy Steam Launch. Go for the inexpensive ones since the collector items can be quite expensive.

If my useless stockpile of pop_culture memmory is correct. The navy was had licensed that song to use for a recruitment campaign. It was stopped at the last minute because someone got around to telling the brass what the song was about...
