While Big Jim rode off into the sunset on the back of a Howler motorcycle in 1976 in North America, his story does not end. In much of Europe, Big Jim enjoyed much more success, actually running until the mid 1980s.
1977, Big Jim was carried in Spain by a company called Congost, who carried all the traditional Big Jim items but also branched the line out into an Old West Line, later years would see Jim as a Spy, a Pirate and even a Space Adventurer.

I think I saw these in the stores as a kid, but they never had much appeal to me, they still don't, don't know why

I always love the Big Jim line but with Big Jim and Big Josh becoming pirates I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere :wink_y:

I find it interesting that Spain replaced Big Jeff w/ Big Jack. Anyway, those accessory sets are really cool! I wish I had those!

Looks to be a good forum. But is there a link to translate it into english? Don't speak Italian.

I use Google translate to post in there, if you post in English, most of the guys will respond in english.

Hi at all!
I'm the Admin of the bigjim.es website and forum. My name is Livio and I follow your discussions here from many years ago 'cause I'm interest also the Mego's world.
Until now I've just read your discussions, I haven't a great experience in Megos.
When I was child I've owned many Big Jims, some GI Joes and few Megos, in particular Action Jackson figures.
In Italy they calls Amico Jackson ("Friend Jackson" translation) and I remember they was the more cheapest action figures in the toy stores. In the 70th they cost £.1500, equivalent to 75cents, under a dollar of today! :terror:
I would be glad if you could subscribe my forum, we've a great experience in Big Jim world area and GI Joe (Europe in particular) world area, Europe and USA productions, but I love many action figures of the 70th.
For the discussions already wrote the unique way is to translate it with a simple online translator (I use sometimes google translator for german and french language) but if you wants more info about a thing don't worry, we undestand english well and we answer in english.
My idea is to become an international forum about Big Jim and GI Joes, and I hope to reach it!
I've also a very little Mego area but I'm thinking to close it and put a link directly here.
I wai your subscriptions, obviously for FREE like here!
I would THANKS AND THANKS AND THANKS to my friend BRIAN (PS)!!! GREAT PERSON!!!!
