Been a while since I posted any of these... Big Jim was Mattel's 1970s attempt to invade the action figure market then dominated by Mego and Hasbro. Oh, they'd tried before in the 1960s with Major Matt Mason, but as the space craze died down, so did that line, unfortunately.
Big Jim originally started out to be sports-themed, but then assumed a more adventure format, eventually going into the whole P.A.C.K. thing where he became the leader of a group of crime fighters! Long after the line ended in the USA, it kept going strong overseas! I'm going to attempt to keep this to the US releases.

The Carryall was a carry over from Mattel's Barbie line, which they'd made the same sort of thing for years by this point.
