This no-frills basic figure was introduced (for the first time with no clothes) in 1980. The orange box has a new side panel that jutted out, that featured the new dynamic physique's benefits. In 1981, the box, in line with other boxes of the time, lost the side panel and had a lower graphic introducing the 'Sharphooter Head Position. The dynamic physique (or 'Blue Pants') figure was originally released for 1979.
The figure was sold either as a blond or brown haired figure. There was no way of telling which was in the box other than breaking the Sellotape seal and looking inside. Many separate uniform sets were available at the time for Action Man to wear.
