Photo Mission Action Man

He doesn't just carry a camera, he is a camera!

That's right - load a 110 film cartridge into his back, point him at stuff, and fire away!

Action Man was originally introduced in 1966 as Britain's version of G.I. Joe.

Production continued until 1984, when Palitoy (the manufacturer) closed.


Hasbro relaunched Action Man in the 90s, and his style became less military and more "modern adventurer".

Photo Mission Action Man was released in 1999 as part of the "Action Man Street" series.
