ACTION FIGURES, CLASSIC 70'S by dusty-abell ACTION FIGURES, CLASSIC 70'S by dusty-abell
Heres a trip down memory lane for ya! If you're around my age and grew up in the best decade ever to be a kid, the 1970's, you might remember a few of these fellas.

Representing the classic Hasbro G.I. Joe Adventure Team line is bearded eagle eyed land adventurer Joe, Mike Powers the atomic man, Super Joe, the hulking Intruder and the incredibly nostalgic Bulletman, The Human Bullet. Vehicles include the classic 6 wheeled ATV and the versitile Mobile Support Vehicle.

Kenners Steve Austin, Maskatron and the Venus Probe from the Six Million Dollar Man.

Big Jim's P.A.C.K. by Mattel including Big Jim Commander, Dr. Steel, Torpedo Fist, The Whip, Warpath, Zorak the ruler of the Underworld and the sporty LAZERVETTE. Also the man who had the guts to get the job done, Pulsar the ultimate man of adventure!

I love reading comments, so leave em if ya got em!

 Huge Big Jim fan here. Love seeing the P.A.C.K. and especially the Lazervetter. It's also nice to see the rare Super Joe.  We must be around the same age...LOL.

Ahh there were so many awesome action figures  like Big Jim and Major Matt Mason and the Multitude of Mego's. The poster would have to be enormous.

Ah-ha! I've seen this and your Fifties B movie monster piece floating around for years on the net. Frustratingly, nobody would ever post the name of the artist. Thanks to tumblr, I finally have a name to go with the art. This is just fantastic! It's like a snapshot of my childhood. Just looking at it makes me happy. Any chance you're going to make this available as a print?

By the by, I wish the Intruder looked this cool!
