Never really thought about the prices before, but these items would have been quite expensive back then.

Great stuff, used to have loads of Action Man stuff, always a toy to return to for more fun back in the day. Have a nice collection of stuff now thanks to a great friend. Certain toys and games would last for a full childhood, Lego, Meccano, Matchbox cars, Scalextric, etc. and Action Man was certainly in that group.

As a kid I loved wandering around scrap yards, now health and safety has put the lid on that :(
They were great climbing up on top of the cars to get bits , there was always a great big dog in the scarp yards as well :lol:
I was merrily climbing and crawling through the stacks at my big local scrappy the other week searching for a jack for a mate 👍
I'm the one that leaves all those shoes in the carriageway.

And you survived to tell the tale :applaud:

Not been to a 'scrappy' for years, and I assumed most parts are already stripped off the cars now?!

The one nearest me (Red Lodge) has quite a high turnover, no idea how long the stacks stay there before they are crushed and shredded, but they were all mostly complete. Great fun squeezing between them and crawling inside them looking for a suitable jack... like something from a computer game. And it was good to be given the freedom to do it too, just like the olde daysies.
