The Action Man Amphicat was available from 1978 from Palitoy General Sales and fitted within the Task Force range. It was an amphibious 'Big Value Vehicle' made by Irwin and carried 2 stars on its box. The vehicle is not too common as it did not feature in the Equipment Manuals, and therefore may have not been on the Christmas list.
The Amphicat was a very tough 6 wheeler blow molded utility vehicle similar in appearance to the foregoing Powerhog. It was a most basic craft and came with a steering wheel and few stickers to dress it for action. Photos courtesy of Samantha Wood (String-fellows) and EagleEyeActionStation.
