Big Jim goes Space

For most of us Big Jim was a loyal friend who took us to the farest placest of the world and let us have fantastic adventures. It all started with the greatest sportler of toy history who could swell his biceps and smashed boards with karate chops. In nearly every sport Big Jim and his friends were masters in the first years: basketball, skindiving, soccer, boxing, cycling, judo, surfing, fishing, skiing, baseball and much more. Later we were invented to cach wild animals with Big Jeff in the jungle. We fighted with bad enemies and tried to find treasures in the deep seas. We sat at the camp fire with Old Shatterhand and Winnetou and with Captain Drake we sailed over the seven seas. With Commando Jeff and 004 we were able to enter the secret spycenters of Professor Obb to save the world. No action figure series, espect Gi Joe maybe, was ever again so variable and extensive like these 10inch heroes. Mattel's answer on Gi Joe was the toy for a whole generation of boys in europe. In 1985 Mattel stopped the line in germany but they tried a new series in other european countries. Star Wars was the big problem and so Mattel started their own space line.

To make a real new beginning all figures were issued with totally different heads. After only two years this last Big Jim series died.

In a near future the forces of evil represented by the "Condor Force" battle the good members of the "Global Command" team in the jungle, the desert, in space and on earth. There are specialists for any terrain. Big Jim battles Professor Obb, Astros fights in space versus Vektor, Dr.Alec in the jungle against Baron Fangg and Colonel Kirk in the desert versus Kobra.

They both have fantastic weapons and vehicles far from our imagination. With the Command mobile which converts in a impregnable fort "Global Command" has the answer to Professor Obb's perfidious attacks with his Condor Patrol Jeep. Kobra has his Sandsniper which is a air-ground vehicle and he often fights with Colonel Kirk and his mighty Desert Hawk.

And we all know: the good always win...!?
