Take what I say with a proverbial pinch of salt, but off the top of my head I would assume 1970 - 1973 as the Action Men are fuzz heads with hard hands, and it rings a bell that they were only like that for those 3 years.

I can have a look in my ULTIMATE GUIDE VOL2 and see if there is any confirmation of dates.

Andy pm Slack , He is well up on pre 73 & I believe he actually has this set. I'm guessing he is very busy work wise though at the mo so bare with him.

This actual pic is from the 1972 manual. The missile launcher seems to 1st appear in the 1971 manual but is missing from the 1973 one, suggesting it only had a 2 year production run. However as we've seen before what is listed in the equipment manuals and what was actually available retail were often very different things.
