British Infantryman 50th Anniversary Action Man

Description

Action Man is back in this limited edition range with the best of the 1960's and 70's features. The flocked hair, the hands that really grip and the signature scar all feature with outfits, accessories and of course, the iconic dog tag.

In January 2017 a uniform set reminiscent of a British Infantryman "Soldiers of the World" uniform is released to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the launch of the basic Action Man Action Soldier of 1966. This release is part of the plan that re-establishes the Action Man brand once more to many euthusiasts around the world. The British Infantryman's equipment appears similar in design to the original 'Soldiers of the World British Infantryman' with brown boots more akin to the 'GI Joe' British Commando (those without laces). Main features of the uniform are the inclusion of specific medal ribbons, more accurate in terms of detail, colour of ribbon decal and identifiable military patch - of the 50th Infantry Division. The 50th Infantry Division were veterans of D-Day (Gold Beach), Africa, Italy, France and Germany during WW2 they won more Victoria Cross gallantry medals than any other Division. The ribbons are appropriately (top to bottom, left to right) VC, 1939-45 Star, War Medal, Africa Star, France and Germany Star, Italy Star. He comes with a self-assemble gas mask and STEN clip in the gas mask bag. He has flocked hair, gripping hands and a hand-made body similar to the original Action Man action figures of the 1960's and 1970's. He comes in a high quality gift box that also doubles as a presentation set with poppy field 3D diorama.
