Heads up, Action Man (AM) fans It’s 2016 and your favorite action hero’s 50th Anniversary is finally upon us. As you probably already know, plans are currently underway to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime occasion worldwide. Yes, we remember how Hasbro ignored GIjOE’s 50th Anniversary, but for whatever reason, it has decided to pay homage to Action Man (and his fans) by approving the production of FIVE commemorative 12″ action figures based on vintage Palitoy designs. When asked about definite release dates for the figures, AM’s chief spokesman, Bob Brechin, replied:

“One will be released on Father’s Day (June 19th) and the second on Armed Forces Day, (June 25th). The others will follow. One of the figures will be a footballer to celebrate England winning the World Cup in 1966, just in time for the European Championships, I guess. However, these will essentially be for the collectors.”

Bottom Line: Read more about Action Man’s 50th Anniversary plans in an article published recently over in the Leicester Mercury found HERE. Stay tuned for further updates!

    Hi, Will the Action Man 50th be for sale in the USA at retail shops or specialty stores? Do you have any ideas about price? The 40th were costly at $70+ dollars.

    Hi I thought we were going to see the first 50th action man in the shops for fathers day. There was nothing! Why can’t it be as well presented in likes of asda & tesco like star wars. Can anyone help?
