ACTION TEAM SETS
The Action Team range consists of many
sets including carded weapons, carded unforms and equipment, window-box equipment
and vehicles, boxed vehicles and equipment and various miscellaneous items.
The weapon cards are the smallest items containing
various firearms and small equipment pieces to compliment the figures. The
cards themselves are similar to the Action Man carded weapon series to the
point of also having the characteristic red colour.
The larger carded sets have multi-piece weapons,
simple uniforms, various equipment pieces and even wild animals such as snakes
and giant spiders. They also sport the red design with a yellow border and
some of these sets include useful information about the item itself on the
back of the card.
The window-box sets are almost identical in design
to the GI JOE Action Packs released in the USA. The main difference is the
colour, once again the Action Team red and the artwork which is based on the
GI JOE artwork where applicable but hand-drawn rather than life-like.
The smaller cardboard box sets are full-colour and
glossy whereas the larger boxes for vehicles are matt and dull in comparison.
The artwork is drawn and based on the Action Man box art where applicable.
Miscellaneous items such as a life-size working
radio and carry-cases are also a part of the range and not to forget two audio
adventures, both vinyl LP and cassette tape, featuring Bob Power.
