The Action Elite Christmas List

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and nothing says Christmas like a shitload of artillery. So here is what The Action Elite would happily accept from Santa.

Exploding Arrows from Rambo


Our very own Terminator; he can take out the trash, walk the dog and destroy our enemies. Sold!


Ghostbusters Proton Pack – I hate when I’m sitting having breakfast and I get slimed, so I wanna make sure it ain’t gonna happen again.

Action movie T-shirts. Commando, Raw Deal, Cobra, etc? Yes please!

So there you go, there’s something for every action fan right there. I’ll take number 6, please Bob.
