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 'standard' range - Soldier (Blond), Sailor (Brown) and Pilot (Black) have a particular hair colour.

His uniform is basically tailored and accurately resembles a current No4 dress (working) uniform of the Royal Navy. A version with the No1 dress uniform is available with accessories. The shirt has a velcro fastening like its real counterpart. Action Man has a simple plastic beret with space for a badge customisation, and highly detailed left and right boots of the contemporary military style. 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 deluxe version of the Sailor with different uniform and accessories was also launched.

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