I have some Action team small cards, and unlike the VAM cards, these have prints on the back-side. 

Even the the same items, have different prints on the back-side :

Seems like collecting all of these will be something like a never ending story ...

I've bought (still have to receive them) two cards with the "Ausr├╝stung" (is more or less the kit bag but without sleeping bag, explosives and with a UN helmet) which have the wigwag and DSD printed on the back; one card is with the "XM 214 Automatic Gun Machinengewehr 6207" and has the bearded head printed on it.

I'll post pics of the cards in Tim's thread on AT-cards as soon as I'll receive them.

Any one who has an idea about the value of the small cards (the one simular to the equipment card with kit bag the one with the XM-214) ?


I can't put an actual price on the small cards - but I have noticed that the kit bag ones are more common on e-bay overseas, but the main point to consider is the high postage.

I was lucky to pick up this rope bridge loose, and then get a carded version (It had been opened, but can be resealed fairly easily)

I absolutely love these cards, they are some of my favourite pieces!

This one is called Action Radar.  I found it interesting because the only reference I found to it in the original GI Joe catalogues was as part of the Super Joe accessories where it was billed as a sonic scanner.  So I wonder if (as I mentioned elsewhere) like The Intruder figure it was another cross over piece that Hasbro pushed into the regular market, in this case Action Team.

I've also got a silver/black loose version but I don't know where that came from.  The headphones are the standard issue ATeam HQ, 60's Minesweeper etc

Trials at a secret location... oh, alright, it's Blackpool beach, as usual!!!!

Thanks Jim, that was one that had puzzled me for ages, as I have picked up quite a few of the black radar bits. Had a few customs in mind, but didn't want to use them if they weren't VAM (or a cousin). I always thought they were Cherilea. So I can go ahead now with my bomber command radar trailer (orange and white squares). Thanks mate.

    Vaughan, GI Joe also had radar-type stuff. You can just about see it in this shot:


That's a great pic!  Oh, I wouldn't mind that piece of kit! 

That's the early seventies, Adventure Team solar communicator set - those panels were re issued fairly regularly with other sets including vehicles like The Trouble-shooter, and were black or silver in colour, or color, as GI Joe might say!

 'You must have taken that last summer, Jim.'

LOL!   I think it might have been two years ago!  I've never used the pics, and had forgotten about them until I read this thread. (The sub title - Prints on backside still makes me smile!  : )   )

Glad to be of help, Vaughan!  I'll be posting some of the stuff you inspired me to when I get a chance!

... Looks like he uses it to eaves drop on the rest of the team .....


If I remember rightly, it was part of the gear that he used to travel back to WW2 to pick up some reinforcements on 'Jerry Island

....  Oh, I wouldn't mind that piece of kit! 


Dave (bltn) has a carded one of these I think  I'll see if I have any spare bits
