I don't know about the rest of you collectors out there but I am eagerly awaiting the 2016 Mike Power to show up in my mailbox.


Each year the membership figures have gotten more and more exciting ESPECIALLY if you're like me and a fan of the Adventure Team. With the fate of the collectors club still unclear one thing is.....Mike Power is going to Knock it out of the park! Lanny, you and the rest of the club have given this fan one heck of a membership figure to be looking forward to this year! Thank You Collectors Club!

The Club updated their Facebook page.

I think the set looks cool, I didn't know that the camera was a bracelet.

Considering previous club figures came in a t-shirt and boxers, with no shoes, I welcome the fact that the new Atomic Man has shoes.
Not to mention socks! Plus, vintage tennis shoes for the original figure from the "70's are EXTREMELY hard to find. I'm sure these shoes
are meant to look like the ones from the '70's, and that's fine by me. I'm happy he came with them.

When I first opened my figure, saw the batteries, and what looked like a talker string, I was thinking wow, did they add a few phrases?
And pulling the string heard nothing. Then I realized it activated a light up eye. Too cool! Looking at the figure, you can't tell that one
eye is not painted. Not until you see it light up. The original Mike Power had a plastic piece where light entered it, and putting your finger
over the top of the tube on top of his head darkened his eye, so moving your finger back and forth made his eye flash.

I really enjoy the new head sculpt, and the subtle eye flashing. And since there is no longer the 6 million dollar man, he has two bionic
legs. As far as I'm concerned, the club hit this one out of the ballpark! There has been times in the past where people requested a new,
or repro, of the Atomic Man. I was one that seconded that sentiment.

I am very pleased with this figure, and very happy that the basic figure came with tennis shoes. Even if they are '70's style like the
original. Mine will proudly wear them.

All in all, I am ecstatic with this figure. I think i'ts one of the best the club has ever done!

Those look great, but how available is that figure?

I've seen them for under $20 shipped on eBay, at least you get more then the sneakers with the extras.

You noticed the original Secret Mountain Outpost sneakers! They were not an easy find...

Yep, it's the only downside to this piece IMHO, I don't like the white dress shoes, which I guess is ok now that i have the accessory set, he'll be in his standard issue black short boots.

Too bad we did not get the yellow rope. That is very difficult to find.

Try this one: https://www.modellersloft.co.uk/action-man/40th/ski-patrol-ice-axe-climbing-rope-6-x-grenades.html

It's 4 British Pounds, which means 5 dollars US, but shipping will probably get you.

I should rephrase - hard to get the yellow rope-ladder.
