Product Description

A nice original example of the first type Action Man to be sold in the UK, from 1966 to 1969.

It was launched by Palitoy as Action man in 1966, copying upon the success of ‘GI Joe’ in the USA, which was introduced in 1964. Action Man featured a robust, articulated plastic body, strung with elastic, and had one of four painted hair colours, hence why the early versions are referred to as ‘Painted Heads’. For the first few years the Action Man range was near identical to his GI Joe cousin. Slowly but surely Palitoy steered Action Man’s course to one of a more British character and key innovations were added by Palitoy which included many new accessories and vehicles. This figure has the scarcer Soviet Union Soldier uniform. Condition is good for its age. Small crack on the arm, but still holds hand firmly.

Size: 29.5 cm (11 5/8 inches)
