Action Man fans could be sitting on rare vintage toys worth up to £900


ACTION Man fans have been told to run their eagle eyes over lofts and cupboards because the now rare vintage toys are worth up to £900.

Pristine, boxed examples are selling for hundreds of times their 1970 price of £2.

Collectors are clamouring for the original Palitoy figures, which first came out in 1966.

Even spare parts, such as heads, are being flogged.

Last night, auction site eBay had four sets of Action Man uniforms including a WWII German Afrika Korps rig-out listed at £899.

A 1970 English champions Everton footie kit was £699.

And a World War II-themed Escape from Colditz play set with two Allied POWs and a German officer was £610.

The auction site also had spare uniforms listed for £299 and a head for £30.

Rob Wisdom, who runs the Action Man HQ fan site, said: “My advice if you have any in your loft, is go fetch them down.”
