    I look at this stuff and think what if Mego had gone that way with Action Jackson?

    Some of those later releases are sharp stuff--& Mattel's Max Steel has followed suit market-wise.

    I never had any Big Jim figs as a kid, it was all Mego & then Star Wars, MOTU. I recall thinking the P.A.C.K was really cool, but now I think the Spy series is equally awesome.

    I sure do like them now & have a small collection of early releases.
    WANTED: Dick Grayson SI trousers; gray AJ Mustang horse; vintage RC Batman (Bruce Wayne) head; minty Wolfman tights; mint Black Knight sword; minty Launcelot boots; Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Lion Rock Franky squared boots; Wayne Foundation blue furniture; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; CHiPs gloved arms; POTA T2 tan body; CTVT/vintage Friar Tuck robes, BBP TZ Burgess Meredith glasses.

    I went through a couple of Big Jims when they came out in the 70's. I had the karate outfit for one, but I think that was it. He was a tweener for me. Too big for the Mego's, too small for GI Joe. And as Palitoy noted, mom's only had so much money to spread around. It is amazing how much better the line got when it went overseas, though.

    I've been going through the process of completing my P.A.C.K collection and its been allot more work now than if I had jumped in about 10 or 15 years ago. Big Jim has got to be one of the most erratically priced product lines on the vintage market. Part of it feels like its driven by the foreign market where Jim had a longer life span and the other part are sellers not being able to distinguish a common item domestically from something more rare that was never sold in the states, so it all gets priced in together. Yet when I talk to local dealers they say the line is completely dead. There are so many different perspectives out there, the pricing is reflecting that broad spectrum of views, none of which seem to find a common middle ground. Its an odd one to nail down.
