Vintage 1977-78 Action Man US 7th Cavalry Figure


The Wild West series (also called the Way Out West series) was initially developed by Palitoy. While the series fared fairly well in Britain, the series was destined to become a huge success in Europe. Surprisingly, it never appeared in the US market. One of life’s little mysteries, I guess. This vintage 1977-78 Action Man US 7th Cavalry lad was issued for just the two years. For those with a thirst for knowledge and an abundance of time, the detailed condition of each component is:

  • Vintage Action Man with original flocked hair and gripping hands has the Palitoy stamp on his back. Very light play wear. Flocked hair is thick and bright. Minimal eye brow rubs and great face paint. Tight joints, he holds a comfortable pose. Original gripping hands are soft and pliable; we didn’t flex them too much, but there didn’t appear to be any splits. No stress cracks on this lovely lad. A faint blue mark on his forehead is the main note. Display this lad with pride.
  • Single Breasted, Navy Blue Jacket is constructed of light weight fabric features five golden spiked buttons and three yellow fabric stripes on each sleeve. Late issue nylon tag that reads Palitoy Action Man Made in Hong Kong. Fabric is dark and brightly colored, crisp and clean with minimal play wear. Brass buttons have minimal oxidation. Snaps/poppers are present and in good working order.
  • Light Blue Striped Riding Breeches in a medium weight blight blue fabric with thin yellow stripes down each side. No pockets. Two front snaps/poppers are present and in good working order. All four blue suspender buttons are present and securely fastened. Fabric is clean and brightly colored, with minimal play wear.
  • Yellow Cloth Braces with elastic loops on each end (fit onto the pants waist buttons) is clean and brightly colored with no issues noted
  • Yellow Cloth Scarf is clean and brightly colored with no issues noted.
  • Blue Kepi (hat) made of blue rubber with painted black peak, painted golden buttons on each side, and a metal ‘7th Cavalry’ badge pinned on the front. Minimal play wear.
  • Calf Length Black Riding Boots feature chrome painted spurs that fit under the heel with a rubber strap. They are complete and intact, with light paint rubs on the spurs the only note.
  • Original Black Rubber Gun Belt with single holster is clean and complete with both belt buckle nubs present and intact, a rare treat.
