Like I said on HQ, I don't know about everyone else, but Rob did point out the chap in the lower left as being one, just as you have. Though by looking at the hands, the mountaineer is one too, as are the two pilots on the lower right.


And that Queen's Guard uni looks tailor made for the "Child's Action Man" range, so we could be getting uniform sets too...

I NEED MORE PICS! Drool affraid Very Happy

If this is a shot of what's coming, I'll reserve judgement until I see some clearer pictures.

I will say however that the figures touted as new collectors models whilst apparently better articulated than the recent much derided 'kid's' release, still look a bit odd by comparison to the 50th above them. For all their faults, they had correct proportioning.
These newer looking ones look like they have the elongated legs of the Chad valley bods which make slightly shorter arms look way shorter.

Just an initial observation. We need more pics of course.

From HQ:

wiscan wrote:
Art & Science at a Toy Show previewing these:

"Day 2 of #Distoy.... pop in to see us and meet the newest additions to the #ActionMan Family! #CollectorEditions"

Articulation, new outfits - happy? ! Smile

Looks like (at least) RNLI, Red Arrows Pilot, Mountaineer, and Grenadier Guard.

My two cents:

Looks like Action Man is getting to what the Classic Collection of GI Joe was.

Figures with outfits based on specific military and paramilitary units, as well as possibly historic battles. Like the US Navy Blue Angels, Navy SEALs, US Army Rangers at Pointe Du Hoc, US Army Rangers Long Range Sniper, Navy Fuel Handler, F-15 Pilot, etc.

So this should be a nice trip down memory lane for me.  Very Happy

I for one am excited, and can't wait to see what else may be in store.

Parroting the others, I would like to know the price. Because MacBeth and I would love to have one or two of these guys in the S.O.S.  :histerica


Roll on the next pics!   cheers cheers cheers

For a FAR heftier price too I'll be bound. Very Happy They are World Peacekeeper molds or very similar I think are they?

Not that that's bad by any stretch as they're OK but they ain't over expensive. Be interesting to see the final price tag on these.
