I have to agree with Fraser - the original had flat painted on hair - the 'real hair' didn't comae along for a few years after he was introduced, just like the gripping hands. I had a dog too which I got by collecting stars and a couple of extra men. My brother had a jeep too. I played with mine for years - I wish I knew what had happened to them. For some reason all I have is one man in a brown box that was a star collection gift and I keep him out of nostalgia.

Hi, in reply to fraser james review, what a kill joy!!! action man may have been a copy of gi joe, but action man has become as british as beans on toast. I had my first actionman in 1970 and he had the same hair as these retros and he could even talk. I am sure I speak for most when I say this retro action man is what we kids of the late 60s and 70s would call the real action man, so if u had one then don't hesitate in getting one of these and re-live your childhood lol.

Bought this little guy for my big brother's 40th birthday, a 'for the man that has everything' pressie, he thought it was totally great and has forgiven me for decapitating the original all those years ago .......

What can I say, bought him for my 5 year old nephew, kept him for myself! Oh well, I guess he can make do with a fiver in a card this year. Just like you remember from your childhood, no blue plastic pants on this chap though!
