Action Man greets his public


Hopping over to the UK today for this weekend's mall appearance with shots from a 1979 appearance of Action Man in Blackpool. To those not in the know AM is the UK version of G.I. Joe, although Action Man had more of a paramilitary flavour and was wildly popular, in 1979 he was outselling Star Wars.


Here Action Man presents a "sophisticated video cassette recorder" to a prize winner, fancy! The winner designed the best store window display for Action Man, more on that later.
