    New arrival! Boxed vintage Action Boy

    I wasn't shopping for one, but this popped up reasonable so I grabbed it.

    The figure and accessories are real nice, the box is pretty displayable.

    Just thought I'd share.

    One of my favorite toys, I love his head sculpt. Congratulations!

    He would have made a great Bucky, I have seen a custom.

    Thanks!

    I think Ideal had quite a few plans for sidekicks beyond what they did produce. Bucky would have been a cool one for sure.

    that looks great! nice and sharp and no melt on the accessories. Bucky would have been a great outfit for AB.

    Beautiful! Full disclosure, I have always liked Action Boy's design better than Captain Action himself. It's a more unique, paramilitary design, whereas Cap looks like a sea captain.

    Guess they could have done Jimmy Olsen too.

    I think he's a great figure for sure. Sculpt is nice, and the actual body is really good, pose ability is excellent.

    As a Captain Action collector I sort of gasped when I opened the box and saw the the knife was in the sheath and the boomerang was in the holster.

    I had no idea how long those has been in those situations. Of course I was worried about these having melted, and I slowly worked the knife out and it was near perfect. The boomerang took a little more tugging but came out with no evidence of melts either.

    I probably was sweating bullets and had to go lay down after that
