Aha!

So this is the 4th? and final Blow Pipe set? That's a good head sculpt, it was also used on the very basic 'Global Mission' Action Man figure, the skin tone and finish is quite realistic, it also has a very matt finish. One thing I noticed with the art work, it depicts Action Man with brown hair and painted tiger camo stripes on the right side of his shoulder, but on the actual figure in the box there is none, and no brown hair either, hence 'contents may vary from box art illustration', something along those lines. Is the hair brown from where you are standing Ackie, is your camera playing tricks with colour tone?

No it's not the 4th one Clivvers that Hasbro made
Hasbro made two other Mam blow pipers before the one you see in this picture the first one looked like this

The second one

All Carded Set Images are coped from The Action Figure Archive Modern Action Man section.

This blow darter doesn't have brown hair he's got black hair with bits of orange in it. It's just my camera playing tricks with colour tone that's all.
