So here's another ad for the Evil Knievel action figures and accessories, from Ideal...

Now, let's recap... in the 1970s, there were the following action figure toy lines to choose from...

Mego - World's Greatest Super-Heroes, Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, and many, many more

Mattel - Big Jim

Hasbro - GI Joe

Kenner - The Six Million Dollar Man (and of course, later, Star Wars)

Ideal - Evil Knievel

I think those were the main ones... there was also a Lone Ranger toy line, and Marx was in its last gasps with Johnny West and Best of the West, but I think that's about it... anyone remember any others I've forgotten?
