It's these bad boys I'm after. Specifically the tree/log and a couple of tyres (tires)!
I've found a log and single tyre on ebay price not too bad but postage is ebay silly.

Wow never seen these before! They were never released for VAM and I don't think GI Joe had 'em either.

Gideon is correct: these pieces were part of the AT Training Tower.

Check out Plaid Stallions for a picture:

I wonder why Action man missed out on these?

I had my doubts about these items as the tree trunk looked like something Hasbro had found in some other toy manufacturer's back catalogue like the spider in the 'Skydive to Danger' set.

The joe training tower had a few extra accessories such as
A new rifle rack
Medical box
Targets with card inserts
Logs
Barrels
Barbed wire
Half tyres

From what I can tell only AT germany released a few if these, seen in the blister. I haven't seen any other items except the snake. ( or was that another set!?)
They are hard to find in Germany as few bought them and they are not recognised as AM stuff so get lost or forgotten hence me turning to the States!
The carded AT is almost £60 on ebay!
I found a seller on ebay ex Brit living in states managed to get 2 logs 2 tyres and 4 targets for about £12 so am happy!

That's probably an accurate assessment... Very Happy

Check out this link: Cotswold Collectibles...  

They've got loose Training Tower pieces and their shipping prices are reasonable.  Might as well pick up some of their figures, they're the highest quality vintage style bodies on the market.
