1977 Was to be a really exciting year for Action Man and this was kicked off with a fascinating 1st release continuing with the theme of another member of the Action Man Team Palitoy Released a negro Action Man bearing the same scar but he was called TOM STONE. This was a totally different construction and actually was the same body that our european cousins used for their figures. Sadly we now know that the rubber would perish quite quickly leaving the figures in pieces to later be re strung with elastic which is quite a tricky job to do. There is some confusion over what box art came first but i would say my one was the 2nd issue and much easier to obtain than the 1st issued boxed artwork which is this one.

A much sought after box by me at the moment Smile

There are two first issue boxes in John Menzies Waltham Cross shopping pavilion or least there was last time I looked which was probably 1978 Very Happy

Hi Danny.

What a fabulous upload. As you know Tom is my Favourite action man by a mile..... In fact I've been thinking about my top five again recently and both my Tom's are in my top five.



Just want to say if I do ever sell. You will get first refusal mate.

This is my childhood Tom with a box I was lucky enough to pick up this time last year Wink

Terrific upload mate, I have to agree with sparky, for me Tom Stone was always the best of the action man team releases, cheers
