Been chatting to fellow members about these books lately and thought I would post some pics with some examples of the content of each one.

First up is N G Taylors Action Man:On Land, At Sea And In The Air. Very interesting book, highly detailed descriptions throughout.
Interestingly, Taylors preference is the PH figure which he uses to display every outfit including Tom Stone!

Next up is Kevin Kings Action Man : The Real Story 1966-1996.

This was readily available for a good price up til a couple of years ago but now the price of this book has gone through the roof!

It is a another great book with loads of info and details on what to look for when buying figures and outfits.





Note how these figures are titled "Novelty Figures"!!

Alan Halls Action Man: The Ultimate Collectors Guide Volume One. Very nicely illustrated throughout and each figure, outfit and set is detailed but no narrative on the hobby. Another great book though and well worth having.

Ian Harrisons Action Man: The Official Dossier. Very nice book that covers the history of Action Man and has a Foreword by Bob Brechin.

I consider myself lucky to have them too Richard. The Kevin King book is excellent. Sara bought it for me for my 40th birthday for £30.00. I really don't know why it isn't re-printed I'm sure there is a market for it.

Think there are a couple of other books but the mistakes in the outfits are huge??
