Action Man Le Mans rally car & Action Man, rare 2001
Released by Hasbro 2001
This is a big vehicle ready to endure all the racing and play thrown at it. Great for grandparents for when young ones visit or Le Mans enthusiasts (big and little)
Due to the rareness and age of this rally car, Mint unused versions of the rally car by itself typically sell for $195. You can pick up new Hasbro Action Men for £30 - £60 (NZ$60 - $115), but they rarely have the character and charm of the vintage versions.
In 1966 Palitoy released a new range of toys, Action Man was born, a close relative of G.I. Joe which was manufactured by Hasbro in America. The original Action Man range consisted of what become known amongst collectors as “Painted Head” dolls. The original figurines launched were Action soldier, Action pilot, and Action sailor. Such were their success, that within three years, a small range of other action men and accessories were launched. The figurine itself saw a few changes until Palitoy ended production in 1984; first was the introduction of” flock” hair in 1970, later in 1973 gripping hands and finally 1977 saw “Eagle Eye” dolls. Then Hasbro bought the brand.
