    There was a flocked Mike Powers/Atomic Man in that commercial from Palitoy. Looks like Mike Brady in later seasons. Anyway, did Palitoy actually distribute him that way? I know I've never seen any.

    Yes, Palitoy added flocked hair, an atomic heart and gave him a paramilitary jumpsuit.

    Great video. I never had a Bullet Man, but man, I would have loved it. That Colorforms set you briefly showed had all sorts of redrawn, swiped DC art. A Curt Swan Superman for Bullet Man, and the famous running/punching Supes by Neal Adams for the regular GI Joe.

    I dig that unmasked headsculpt too. Gives me a bit of that Lone Ranger/Super Joe/12" Robin vibe.

    I too have a happy memory of receiving my Bullet Man via catalog mail order (would have been Sears or JC Pennys). I have a nice Bullet Man today, but one of my grail items that I'd like to find eventually is the cardboard mailer box (or repro) that I got my original one in.

    I forgot to mention that cardboard mailer box, totally flaked on it.

    The Palitoy commercial is just brilliant; one of the best/fun toy spots I've seen! That's kiddie-crack!

    ^The Action Man ad with Tom Baker doing the voice over is also a good one.
