    This is why I'm an Adventure Team man, but one question still remains...

    How much scratch for the Add-on? 2013's surpassed the club membership cost, which is silly.

    Not what I had hoped for

    I can't say that I'm particularly excited about yet another Man of Action figure with hard hands. I thought the 50th anniversary would have resulted in something either nostalgic and/or something really original.

    I would have liked to see a modern take on the army nurse (or any female figure), the Intruder, an Eagle-Eye, or even Super-Joe. If they had made this MoA a talker, that would have at least been something.

    I think that the club kind of dropped the ball on this one. Oh well, maybe we'll get something more exciting next year.

    We don't know yet as we don't have final costs from the factory. Also, these are VERY short run and they do cost a lot. If they could be cheaper, they would be.

    Thanks!

    This is a figure we have been asked for a lot and we felt it would be appropriate to round out finishing all of the AT reproductions on the 50th. Thanks!

    I've been looking into the other forums (joecustoms) and, they seem a bit unenthusiastic about the 12" figure. They say that it's lazy, and the accessory set contains things that every collector has. They also say that the cost of one of these can equal a vintage of the same type. While their last point may be true, ok, their 2nd and 3rd points are true. So I'd suggest an additional add on. Something really special, that embodies the feel of the early 70's. Though not a child of that decade, I've done my research, so I know that the early Man of Action used both sets from the Adventure Team, and remainders of the Soldier/Sailor/Pilot/Marine lines.

    To make a long story short (too late), an interesting set involving both Adventure accessories and slightly militant accessories. Perhaps a take on "Infiltration," or Espionage" or something. Camoflage Jacket and pants with a web belt (with canteen, sidearm), rifle, knit hat, evidence (of MARS' involvement in some bad things). Just an idea. Not too exciting, I know you guys can do better (than my idea).

    Agreed. I need this figure to complete my Club figures of Land, Air, Sea, Adventurer, Astronaut and the black and white talking Commander's. Nice work!

    Poor though is the 50th logo on the T shirt. That looks totally RAH. The T should have a 100% 1964 related logo.

    Going forward I'd love to see an "Adventures of" line up including Aquanaut. ...and the Japanese Imperial.

    Please!
