1977 Big Jim Catalog from Spain


While Big Jim rode off into the sunset on the back of a Howler motorcycle in 1976 in North America, his story does not end. In much of Europe, Big Jim enjoyed much more success, actually running until the mid 1980s.

1977, Big Jim was carried in Spain by a company called Congost, who carried all the traditional Big Jim items but also branched the line out into an Old West Line, later years would see Jim as a Spy, a Pirate and even a Space Adventurer.

Check out the 1977 Congost Big Jim Catalog




No Big Josh figures were harmed in the production of this catalog

I am suprised that Big Jim cut out so early in North America. I thought it would have been too popular although maybe that fad was fading. I am trying to reconcile against my age and when I would have had some interest in these. Any idea when he was first introduced in the US? I suspect as a competitor to GI Joe ...

I think Jim came in around 1972, he had a good run all things considered but In Europe he had a GREAT run.

You know, someone could convert Big Jim in his fire-proof suit figure into a custom Human Bomb without a lot of work...
