Gone sadly are the days of Action Man, but thankfully a new dawn has arisen! Now you can buy Action Man style Action Figures that are based on real HM Armed Services personnel. As someone who grew up with Action Man, I have to say I am seriously impressed by the quality of these toys. On this page I'm going to talk about the Mortarman and Heavy Mortar Action Figure From HM Armed Services.
This 10" Action Figure is modeled on a real HM Armed Services Mortarman and his Heavy Mortar. He is very well detailed and really looks the part, with a full fabric desert camouflage uniform which is fully removable and some fantastic body Armour integrated with his patrol vest he is set for any job. Due to his Job as a Mortarman he has some additional armor to further protect his neck and arms while firing his mortar rounds.
This HM Armed Services Mortarman features clothing like that found on a real soldier in that its perfect for the desert environment he finds himself in, although this is a toy the real uniform would need to protect against infrared detection, mask the soldiers thermal signature and be flame resistant!

Now lets talk about the weapons that you get with this Mortarman and Heavy Mortar Action Figure From HM Armed Services action figure. Firstly he has his standard issue 5.56mm assault rifle with strap for easy carrying while using the model of the real L16A2 81mm Mortar. This amazing mortar is capable of flinging rounds over 5500 meters and can fire explosive, smoke or flares.
This is a great toy for kids who enjoy playing with toy soldiers and will encourage imaginative play.
