Workshop Accessories Description:

The Action Man Workshop accessories were a series of pocket money priced 'Equipment Centre' cards that contained mixtures of key tools. In addition to the contents listed above for the tool box card version, were items such as a pick axe, sledge hammer, spade, pulley/winch, vehicle jack, tool belt with axe, torch, metal cutter and gold pliers (as worn by the Fireman), jerry can, small fire extinguisher, bolt cutters, rope and traffic cones.


The accessories were on separate cards but shared the catalogue number of 34278. They appear in the 1977 and 1978 equipment manuals. The tool box and various accessories were also offered through the star scheme on leaflet L574 around 1977 and again on Star Card L160 in 1978. The tip of the drill can sometimes be broken off, and the pliers (especially the gold type) can break easily. The tack hammer in the image below may not have come in this set. Check your tool box has the inner black tray included.
