Action Man Helicopter Contents:
"Easy to assemble, snap together parts make the helicopter a really exciting addition to the vehicle range. Complete with working rotor blades and winch. (N.B. Does not fly)". An Action Man Helicopter Pilot was also produced to fly the aircraft as was a Pursuit Craft Pilot that is pictured on the later Capture Copter Box.
The Helicopter's screen is often marked. The yellow elastic bands that hold the Helicopter's rotor blades in can perish. The skids can easily break or have repairs. When this type of plastic is stressed it lightens in colour at the point of stress. The Helicoptor's winch works by turning a thumb screw, and the rotors by repeatedly pressing a button (see images). The Helicopter was also available in different guises later on, but first appeared on the 1973 Equipment Manual cover, however it only appears inside the next year (1974). Replacement stickers are available here.
