original Action Man head dating between 1966 and 1970 was a hard,
solid, painted head figure in black, brown, blond, and auburn. The face had
fine features complete with dicreet battle scar, porcelain-like quality and
distinguished stare into the middle-distance reminiscent of a war memorial.
This Action Man head can suffer from 'hair-rub' where patches of the hair colour
or eyebrows rub away revealing flesh coloured scalp. Also many pieces of headwear
(such as the early elasticated Red Beret) would slip about on the shiny head.
This head was redesigned around the end of this first period to a softer hollow
head before the introduction of the flock hair version of 1970.
