Action Man Aquanaut

As a part of the Action Man Deep Sea Mission set was this Action Man Aquanaut, all ready and equipped for his deep sea underwater adventure! What I liked about this figure was that it differed from the original Deep Sea Diver released many many years ago as well as the GI Joe Timeless Collection version released in 1999. Action Man strived to remain relevant and this series was probably the last that still had Action Man putting on clothes for his mission. Later releases had him with molded outfits and everything was just plastic which took away the realism associated with the original Action Man which had detailed uniforms and accessories, much like the 1/6 soldiers and figures released by other 1/6 manufacturers today.

I liked the design of his dive suit which have "shark teeth" marks on it


Action Man with his "specialised sub aqua breathing aparatus"


Check out his "lead weight shoes" to weigh him down underwater
