Action Force (Action Man) Palitoy Figures, Pre GI Joe

Action Force the toy line were made in late 70's early 80's under the Action Man brand and straight arms very similar to the star wars Palitoy line of figures before coming what we now know as action force then became GI Joe

Made in Leicester England like many of the cult status action figures were,  and if you lucky enough at car boots and auctions still find factory samples and unusual items from employee's, personally this is one of my favourite line of action figures along with masters of the universe,

Action Force of course had good guys pitted against the bad guys mo
st figures were fictitious you had the Z- Force against the red Shadows  but they also had real looking SAS figures and historically correct soldiers from around the world like a real German infantry soldier,

Many early Palitoy Action Force toys had a striking resemblance to star wars figures as of course they were made by the same company ,

the action force base is just a  Star Wars death star really so early action force were star wars figures really until after 1982 when they became action force GI Joe as we know today and sure most people remember early cards having action man on them,

Basically Action force early Action man stamped carded figures were indeed mini action man figures before we went all American on us, from children preferred playing with smaller figures and wanted figures to fit in there star wars toys so Action man died with the success of 4 inch figures so action force was the new era action man,

and don't get me started on chocolate factory by my house doing just the same, sorry Cadbury's big mistake.

 American companies dictate what we buy but sorry the early action force red barons were cooler than the cobras and i am a huge Gi Joe fan, but would of loved the red barons to have continued along side cobra instead of being shelved 


Its nice today that GI Joe have reissued many of these early uk figures into modern GI Joe's as the Red Shadows figures are amongst the coolest baddie soldiers ever in any toy line  ,
The Red Barons red uniforms with skulls just looks bad ass much better than the blue GI Joe went with in he end when they went  in the American direction sorry red baddies look cooler than blue , but they did do crimson guards which look awesome in the end,
