The Action Man Afrika Korps could be accessoried by purchasing separate accessory card sets. A Afrika Korps Lance Corpoal uniform with more accessories followed in 1980.

The Action Man Afrika Korps outfit from the Internationals range was a basic uniform that needed further accessorisation to give it play value. The lightweight uniform is prone to losing its silk like badges (buy Afrika Korps badge replacements here).A similar uniform of an Afrika Korps Lance Corporal (from 1980) features corporal stripes on the sleeve, and has a full range of equipment, webbing and a DAK helmet too. Only the Afrika Korps International uniform had the cap shown. The 'current' Action Man in 1979 was the dynamic body Eagle Eyes figure (introduced year before). The Lance Corporal was produced fro the 40th Anniversary sets.
