WHAT IF ACTION MAN WAS BASED ON ACTUAL SOLDIERS?

Veterans for Peace UK has just released a new short called Action Man: Battlefield Casualties, which casts every boy's favourite toy in a much more realistic light. Far from the implausible super-hero, Action Man is transformed into a far too typical victim of war. Instead on the usual guises, we're given PTSD Action Man, Paralysed Action Man and Dead Action Man.

I have to say, this film is incredibly telling and extremely bleak - a true testament to the importance of its message.
