I, like so many of my generation, had an Action Man as a kid. My first had rigid plastic hands and strange, immovable eyes, though I later graduated to one with "extra gripping hands" and "eagle eyes". It was a cool toy, and I had the usual military uniforms, as well as an Arsenal kit, but once I got to a certain age, I moved on. And so I have zero knowledge of the world of GI Joe (as the Americans call AM), nor can I say that I was remotely interested in the movie version currently being filmed. But then, this photo appeared on the net, featuring the lovely Rachel Nichols as Shana "Scarlett" O'Hara and, suddenly, my attention was, well, piqued.
