Good afternoon everybody.

I hope you can help. I have started collecting Action Stars (mainly made for the German market in the 70's) and also the Eagle series of figures but know very little about them.

Can anybody help enlighten me about them please. Is there a complete list of them or even pictures. I have a about 10 figures so far plus 2 jeeps and a fire fighters jeep and also a hand glider. I believe there are a few more vehicles and possibly a boat or two. Can this be confirmed?

Many thanks.

The figures are about 4 1/2 inch tall and very detailed

I'd hasten a guess that it says Plasty. In fact I know it does and I've found a link to it at a place called visibleinnards.com but I'm not going to paste a link here because the language used on that site is about the worst I've ever seen.

I have been to that site given by paula & dan, and I have seen the boxart of some of these eagle models before, I think in the book of 50 years of airfix history by arthur ward...so maybe they were real airfix models...

They were in the Airfix toys and games range (1978), which was separate from the core plastic construction kit line  :wink:
The illustrations in the 50 yr book do not have Plasty in their logos  :!:
