Did anyone else have a Little Big Man? These were Palitoy's answer to Action Man, but smaller! I had a cowboy with a palimino pony. Little Big Man measured around 8-inches tall and came with either blonde or brown hair. Like Action Man Little Big Man was normally dressed in forces gear, like army clothes. Little Big Man didn't have any feet as his boots were bonded directly to his legs with pegs.
You could buy a few different clothing kits for Little Big Man including a Sabotage Outfit and kits known as 'Alpine Adventure'and 'Tropical Combat'. Boxed sets for Little Big Man included Pony Express, Underwater mission, Paratroop Attach and Alpine Adventure.
Little big man was the fore runner to action man or if american, GI Joe! Little big man was released by Palitoy a few years before Palitoy released action man/GI Joe.My brother and I had several LBM action figures and quite a few outfit changes and accessories.we would take them everywhere with us! That is until Action Man hit the shelves, then we had the larger, more articulated action figures. All new clothing, vehicles and accessories to be had for all manner of adventures. Sadly, LBM was forgotten in our household, but I still have fond memories of LBM in his Scout outfit, or cowboy, or Canadian Mountie outfit, all with individual horses of course! Aaaggh, those were the days.
