This self-isolating thing has some positives... on a nice crisp and frosty Spring morning... got a chance to setup the Action Man Pursuit Craft setup, that my buddy in Wisconsin bought in the UK and asked me to handle for him.

Ryker has landed...

Fantastic pics Ralph, and great too see you posting! The PR was always one of my fave vehicles as a kid, I still have mine too. It's hanging from the ceiling in the vam room cheers Will it be staying at Tom K HQ?

Great pics Ralph. Dale is going to love an Action Man green Pursuit Craft!

Is it me or does Ryker always look worried? This time he's obviously worried Tom is going to ask him to personally deliver the PC to wisconsin. In that open cockpit it's going to be one draughty trans-Atlantic flight! lol!

I've learnt to love the Persuit craft. It's after my time VAM-wise and I remember thinking it looked lame but then I helped my little brother build his one on xmas day 1978 and I realised what great play value it had.

Excellent action poses and some great shots of a fun vehicle!

Because of the size, I can't imagine that too many of these survived intact over the years. This one appears to be in excellent condition!

Totally cool vehicle with tons of play value. Excellent pics, thanks for taking the time off work especially to take these pics!

I always love the Action Man military green vehicles. Over here we got a lot of yellow and orange which is okay, but good old Army Green is still my first love.

cheers cheers cheers

Bob Brechin has said Palitoy did consider making an Action Man version of the MSV but then decided against it! Rolling Eyes

Imagine...a green MSV..... Sad  Sad  Sad
