Notes:

The new 'kiddies' (age 3+) Action Man (or KAM as it has been suggested by a collector on AMHQ Forum) has the hallmark classic style headsculpt with his distinctive right cheek scar. The new body is of the 'Ken' type with more limited articulation than has been seen before - reminiscent of the 'Hasbro' type of the nineties period. All limbs swivel fully in sockets, and the knees bend and click. The figure sits well - in fact better than the original figure. Head revolves 360˚ and his hands are fixed but slightly supple.

Each of the new figures in this 'deluxe' range with accessories - Soldier (Blond), Sailor (Brown) and Pilot (Black) have a particular hair colour.

His uniform is basically tailored and accurately resembles a Apollo test pilot of the 1960s - of the light blue type artworked on the GI Joe Action Pilot box of 1964 (and Action Man 1966). The flight suit has a velcro fastening. Action Man has a black helmet with sliding clear visor, scale sunglasses, molded wristwatch, and highly detailed left and right boots. Also supplied are a molded parachute pack with cross over elastic harness. His dog tags are to scale for the first time in Action Man's illustrious history, and have a pair of metal Action Man logo tags on a miniature chain with familiar ball and canoe fastening. Collectors will note the outfit will fit a classic Action Man 1966 figure.

A basic version of the Pilot with different uniform and no accessories was also launched.

It is expected that an advanced super articulated is likely to surface soon aimed at the adult collector.
