Nice and colourful set,

I think i've seen the scooter somewhere before, it looks like one of the late releases?. Did you get this from Tesco about 8 years ago, because they had MAM exclusives that were only sold at Tesco, they were the X Mission sets, but there may have been other non X Mission sets? The Tesco sets are quite hard to find, they were produced at the end or just after MAM's production, so a very limited number of sets were made.

I'v never ever ever seen this box set before in my life, but some items look the same or alike some items from other sets like the rocket launcher has the same design as the rocket launcher from the Street Patrol set but the only difference between the two rocket launchers are the colours of each one. The other item that looks the same is his helmet that's exactly the same colours and design of the helmet from the action man desert surfer set. Skorpion is it possible if you could take a picture of the back of the box please.

Thanks for your replies guys... infact this product was never released . it was the most sophisticated electronic AM set ever produced.each item had a chip in it and was recognised by the sound module so each item would be interactive..... so complex was the electronics it was difficult to get the on pack communication to sell it effectively so this set was never sold, you may have seen the individual items later ie the tooling was used up minus the electronics for other playsets scooter, launcher.
so i'm told! Suspect Suspect

If that set never went into production it could be one of the rarest MAM sets ever!

BTW, is he wearing a helmet of does he have an Afro hairstyle? lol!

Ackie,

From time to time rare stuff can turn up on ebay and other auction sites, and usually sold by ex toy-reps and the likes. You just got to have eagle eyes, a fully loaded paypal account and a trigger happy mouse button finger to acquire rare stuff.

OMG, you were working on Action Man (MAM) product development?, now the firing squad of questions will begin:

1. Do you have any original sketches and preliminary artwork from some of the development of MAM items?

2. Can you sell/trade with me a certain common carded figure that i've been after for ages?

3. What years were you involved in the production of MAM?

4. Do you have all the MAM range and was it a perk of the job?

5. Over to you Ackie...

Clivvers, surprisingly when you work on a product line for its duration, pre production artwork is seen as work-in progress only,
and that goes in the bin and is destroyed when it's served its development purpose! remember we are doing a job we are not collectors and there is a duty of care for the brand reputation not to share or distribute anything that would not have been approved or would indicate to a competetor NPD (New product development!) I have shared some things on this forum which i know forum members would find genuinely interesting ! I as a part of a project portfolio have a collection but sadly i am not a trader. I remain as you do, an interested fan of a great product line.

Skorpion

They is nothing sadly about that your not a trader of MAM in my MAM book skorpion, I'm more pleased to here you say that your an interested fan of a great product line because for me you being a FAN of MAM is far more inportent to me Very Happy. I'm also so glad that we've got another MAM fan on the forum.
