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 inspired by the original "Combat Paratrooper" uniform is released to continue the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the launch of the basic Action Man Action Soldier of 1966 in the UK. This release re-establishes the Action Man brand once more. The Paratrooper's equipment reflects the design of the 'Combat Paratrooper' set. The figure actually constitutes four sets in one - as all were all originally separate purchases in the 1960's: 1. Basic action figure. 2. Paratrooper set. 3. 'Beachhead Assault' style shirt and trousers set. 4. Helmet and netting set. However, in addition, this new figure has a fully working lightweight silk-style khaki parachute - not seen before in the original offering! He has brown flocked hair, and 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 quality gift box that also doubles as a presentation set with a drop zone 3D diorama.
