Action Force Palitoy Pre G.I. Joe Toys and figures
Action Man Action Foce is easily one of the best British toy lines made in the late 70's early 80's Action force was first produced by Palitoy (the company who had the star wars license) branded originally under the Action man brand and often confused with star wars figures for obvious reasons as made the same by same company ,
These action figures were based on real life soldiers well the good guys were the bad guys were just awesome red shadow troopers were just so cool , can not think how Star Wars Stormtroopers should of looked like these guys
Firstly Action force figures had nothing in common with G.I.Joe as mentioned more like small scale Action Man toys made in same way star wars were, then in 1982 they packaged the 1982 G.I.Joe figures Americans know in action force packaging which are now very rare to find a Storm Shadow or firefly on a early UK AF card with old Palitoy figures on the rear,
The early G.I Joe carded figures from America fetch the most money but a mint carded First card version Action force Firefly is so much rarer infact the United kingdom had some of the nicest rarest variants around and worth checking out,
Action force kept this name for a few years until dropping it for the Gi Joe name in the mid to late 80's,
