Here’s an old TV commercial never shown to audiences in the U.S. It’s an early 1970s spot created for the UK (note the accent of the announcer) that advertises the new “Action Man Team” out on patrol looking for the Intruder, described as a “strongman from another planet.” The fearless team includes Action Man “with his eagle-eyes,” a black adventurer known as “Tom Stone,” a unique fuzzhead version of Mike Powers, The Atomic Man and everyone’s odd-ball favorite, Bulletman!
Bottom Line: It’s very cool to see all of these guys in one well-produced commercial. And it’s a real eye-opener to see how much fun is captured in just 30 seconds. You’ll also see the UK blue-version of the Sea Wolf submarine and the ever-cool Capture Copter. But the highlight of the spot may be how they use Bulletman to knock out that “bear-hugging” Intruder. Hilarious!
