Lady Action - Tonner Character Figure

Lady Action

British Superspy Lady Action - spun out of the nostalgic Captain Action comic book series with adventures all her own - made her debut at the 2014 Tonner Collectors Convention!

In 1966, Captain Action leapt into action as the original super hero action figure that had the ability to change into other superheroes, including Superman, Batman, Captain America, etc.  This was accomplished by DC and Marvel character costumes to fit Captain Action sold separately.  The character was the latest concept from toy and idea man Stan Weston, who just two years before had helped Hasbro create the G.I. Joe line. Weston had been the first to propose the idea of an articulated figure in the form of a soldier. From there, Hasbro's Don Levine and his team brought to market America's movable fighting man, and the first modern action figure for boys.  So, too, is Lady Action a woman of the times with the ability to become other superheroes via costumes.
