Action Man

Bulletman (boxed)

12″ vintage action figure

By Palitoy

BE SURE AND READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION AND VIEW AND ZOOM IN ON ALL OF THE PICTURES!!!!

Looking for an incredibly nice 100% complete Palitoy Bulletman with box? You’re going to be extremely hard pressed to find a nicer one! This has been in my collection since the early 90’s. I purchased it through Toy Shop magazine before the internet, let alone eBay, existed. I purchased it from a dealer as new old stock. All in all, it is a beautiful piece and 100% ORIGINAL! There are some minor issues because of age, here is the good and bad….

THE GOOD
EVERYTHING IS 100% ORIGINAL! ALL PARTS, SUIT, EMBLEM, BOX, PAPERWORK, STRING! EVERYTHING!!!!
Head and suit are in phenomenal condition! Chrome on the rocket boots is beautiful.

100% complete, with box, all accessories and all paperwork. String has never been removed from cardboard spool.

NEVER played with. Just look at the suit and You’ll be able to tell it has never been played with. You’re going to NEVER find a nicer suit and emblem.

Super tight wrist joints. Almost scary to move them. Be very careful. Another sign that it as never played with or messed with much.

The box is definitely one of the crucial best Palitoy boxes I have ever seen. Other than some scuffing and a minor crease from storage over the years, it is solid and unbelievable!

THE BAD-ISH
First of all, his arms and head have been restrung. This is inevitable, because the original figures joints deteriorate. You’re going to not find one that has original joints and if by miracle you do, they’re going to eventually deteriorate. The good thing, I very carefully restrung him with elastic years ago, and NO DAMAGE was done. No cracking open arms or anything crazy.

All in all the chrome looks great, but there is some dullness and light spotting to the helmet and a chip off the chrome on one of the crucial hands. This is from storage in the box over the years. Again, this has never been played with or mistreated.

There is a small melt mark on the back of his neck, from the helmet.

Also, a couple black spots on his calf. I haven’t tried cleaning them off.

One of the boots has a slight factory defect. It came out of the mold bad, and is fairly thin in the toe. This forms a dent. I have seen this with other Palitoy Bulletman boots, so must be somewhat common, but feel I should mention it anyway. You’ll be able to try and put something in there to push out the dent, but it pops right back. This is not damage that happened in some way over the years. It was like this from the factory. Maybe try stuffing some tissue in there and put his boot back on. I never bothered to check out that.

All of these flaws can be seen in the photos (be sure and zoom in on the one showing all the flaws). And all of the flaws are either from age, storage or the factory.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE OF THE RARE UK RELEASED BULLETMAN! A very high end, serious piece.
