Man, I loved my Big Jim stuff back then. I especially loved that Honda motorcycle. I ride Honda's today, becasue I was heavily influenced, and I have been a Honda rider ever since. Great toy. I wish I had one still in the box, to collect.

I think Big Jim was the very first action figure I had as a kid. I still recall being blown away when a kid in kindergarten showed me the button on his back to activate the karate chop arm- I had not known about it!

There are plenty of Big Jim on Ebay- but it helps if you select the "worldwide" button on the left side of the page- this produces twice as many results as Big Jim sales slowed in the USA in the late 70s- they continued to be strong in Europe.

Yeah, I think that Big Jim and all the other accesories and figures were one of the best toy lines of the 70s, especially The PACK series. I put Big Jim up there with the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle, FP Adventure People, The SMDM and accesories. Big Jim was an awesome toy line.
