Thanks Paul . You , Chris , Peter and i must go and see the Doctor. We are the only ones posting in this thread and we use words like Wow , Cool and Killer about girls and disco bands dolls lol!

But this is so cool , we all get sendt way back and remember things that we forgot all about. Very Happy

The figting dolls were cool , they had a butten under a arm and when you pushed it . The arm startet to move up and down. So you could have a sword fight Very Happy
I have one of them but he has been in so many fights that he is missing a hand and leg. But he is up for trade with his Mego pals Very Happy

Leg did five Robin Hood sets ( they ads says so ) I can remember that i had this tree , you culd open it an the figz culd hide in it .

Pm about the Nintendo games on the way for you Chris Very Happy

Here are more goodies for you all

As for the Atari system, they came out with an all black case as the others had wood grain on them. As for the 2600, theres 7 different console styles altogether, from "Heavy Sixers" to "Light Sixers" (has six switches on top and heavy) to the regular ones (with 4 switches and lighter) and the Junior later model. Another way to tell, is its the first model where they put 2600 on it where the older models only had "Video Computer System". You can read up on them here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atari_2600_hardware

I haven't been bit by the bug yet. If I had more storage room for them, I probally would. Very Happy I got enough areas to concentrate on atm I need to finish before starting on something new. If I had the display room that Josh_T has, I could.

Some great ads added here guys Smile

Chris, seeing the Frogger and Burger Time ads brough back some memories lol! Cool SW ones too.

Soren, so many LEGO ads! Cool. The pictures of the old school figures with no faces or moveable arms/legs bring back some early memories - as does the Britains soldiers - I had lots of those German infantry figures pictured (plus dozens of Cavalry and Union soldiers). Sold em all to buy records though Sad ah well. Cool Barbie ads too **ahem** lol. Was nice to see the Corgi moonraker vehicle, and the Superhelten action figures are bizarre bcaus they all have a beard lol.

SupeRRR! ads cheers

Hi Peter, I have some Group Action Joe as they were called in France - these ads feature the famous Eagle Eyes figures - as well as Jane, the only female action figure to feature the eagle eyes. They also made a version of the popular French cartoon character Rahan as seen in the first ad.

Hope you like these Smile

Hi Paul,

Thanks for posting up these vintage Group Action Joe ads from 1978, 1979 and 1981. The one that I find intriguing is the 1978 ad. Do you have more information on this Eagle Eyes Jane figure? Smile I tried to Google search for her but my search did not come up with anything.

Soren, will like to see your vintage foreign G.I. Joe ads. Are they called ACTION MAN too in Denmark?

Hey I recognise the Hospital set from that ad you've posted. I used to have similar LEGO sets circa 1975 in those format. Mine was a living room and reading room combo. Smile

Action Man is the Uk version of GI Joe but not all are the same . But both GI Joe and AM where sold in Denmark .

I fact Action man was my first love before SW . I have a cool poster from Action Man i can post when i get the time.

it was this book i saw at the flea market

This is for you Peter. Danish Action man ads and a cool poster. ( UK ) Hope you enjoy Very Happy

Danish toy magazin 1973


The poster





Soren thank you very much for posting these 1970's Vintage ACTION MAN ads and posters from Denmark. I recognise the last 4 pictures as the 1981 PALITOY new format fold out catalog cum poster at the end of this line. Uncannily it may seem because Kenner Toys adopted the same approach when they published the POWER OF THE FORCE Planetary Maps in 1985 :


On the reverse side of these Maps (Death Star, Tatooine and Endor) featured the last and final line of Kenner Star Wars action figures - 93 including Yak Face, Tatooine Skiff, the 3 POTF Body Rigs, Ewok Battle Wagon, A-Wing Fighter, Droids Side Gunner, Droids ATL Interceptor and etc.

You are velcome Peter Very Happy

I have the POTF map also. I can remember that the shops stoped selling Action Man when i was very little and i was so sad.

But that might be why i turned to SW back then :-)

Some where i have another Action Man ad that i wil post for you Peter.

Hi Soren,

Do you remember what year was that when the toy shops in Denmark stopped selling ACTION MAN? In Malaysia, I did not pay attention anymore after 1977 as my attention was on AIRFIX, MATCHBOX, TAMIYA and of course the Kenner STAR WARS figures.

Yes please go ahead and post up this other Action Man ad. Smile I'm looking forward to see it.

Hi Peter
No not realy . Im from 77 and i think i got on SW after ROTJ . So 83-84 i can remember playing Star Wars in kinder garden after ANH where shown in Danish national TV. ( and i had SW toys before that ) And i stated in School in 85. To ad to the confusion . I just found another ad from x-mas 1981 with
Action Man. So some where around 82-84

I can remember that there where talk about they stoped selling Action Man becouse it was to vielent toys. So it might have ben a ban of some kind or just a chain of shops that did not wanted to sell it.

Any Way it was some cool stuff they made Very Happy

More ads for you mates. Starting of with another Action Man ad for you Peter Very Happy


Hi Soren, thanks again for posting up this Vintage ACTION MAN ad. Looking at the pictures it would either be the 1973 or the 1974 ad. I received my Action Soldier but sadly Palitoy gave him a black plastic beret instead of that COOL green felt beret from the catalog picture. Crying or Very sad

BTW what magazines are those with these ads? Their contents is really a paralel with those Mini ACTION MAN in-package catalogs. Smile

Also is the Playmobil line still available in Denmark now :?: I remember they made a comeback in the recent few years.

Hi Peter it is nice that i can keep you happy with some AM ads Very Happy

The ads are from Danish Donald Duck start 1970's the paintet one is for mail aways . The others are from x-max toy inlays . They are from a association of toy importers in Denmark ( The last postet is from 74 )

have some later ones that should have contained Star Wars toys but they don't. It might have been that they did not import SW.


Playmobil is still big here. My sister has two boys and they get Playmobil. They make some cool things now of days Very Happy

I have some vintage boxed / MISB up for trade if you are interested Very Happy

Hi Soren,

Yes I do enjoy looking at them and you've done a good job in posting them up. Have any of your childhood Action Man figures, weapons and accessories survived till today? Smile

Thanks for letting me know where these ads are published in. Did you acquire these 1970's Danish Donal Duck and X-Mas toy inlays from eBay or from a local Danish source? Smile


Good to know that Playmobil is well and alive in Denmark. Unlike my passion for Vintage Star Wars figures and boxed playsets and vehicles, I have permanently outgrown Playmobil and have no interest in them.
