Jon's Random Acts of Geekery is your five days a week destination for old-school geekery!
i don't remember those toys by Mattel... the characters are kinda funny, ya know -all the comic book hero cliché elements :Di am entertained!
I don't think Big Jim was ever released in the UK (of course, it might have been... Oh well) but every time i seen stuff i think.. Action Man? anyway.. The worst thing about these comics is the amount of time no credits are given..All i can figure out is..All products are subject to change, It's a Trademake of Mattel and.. well.. there battlecry which (and this is just to me) sounds like someone with there hand trapped in a swinging door doesn't seam to be said by any one... a panel with 'AAAAAAOOOOOOO' at the bottom of it, with a 'wind' like effect... makes you really wonder how makes that sound?
I remember these characters clearly. I actually had Mr. Steel (Mr. Clean with the metal hand) and Warpath (the dude with the bow). I can see now that it was clearly a way to expand the Big Jim universe and as a young lad I bought into it big time. Thanks for the post and the memories.
Manic Man - I believe that Big Jim actually lasted longer in the UK than in the States! He was shorter than Action Man/GI Joe. So far as the credits go, I'm sure they've been posted at the Grand Comics Database.
