Photo Mission Action Man

    Newer Older

    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.

      Yes I remember him!!! I saw him in Austria in 1999. I bought instead a action man as astronaut, with a regresive count watch to the year 2000, I have him in my galleries if you want to see him.

      I've bought one of these for my son's birthday. I work as a TV cameraman, and thought it would be cool for him to have a doll "just like daddy."
      Sadly, I don't have Action Man's rugged looks or physique!
      I've stocked up with 110 film, and we'll be shooting some pics with him soon!

      Well, you may not have Action Man's physique, but I'll bet your pants are better-looking than his!

      I wouldn't bank on it! Sartorial elegance is not my strong point either!

      Thank you for adding this photo to the Camera-wiki.org pool. Action Man demanded to have his own wiki entry, and here it is:
