Action Force Tracker

In the early 80's, Palitoy released a line of 3.75 inch figures based on their popular Action Man line from the 70s. Although the line included several repainted GI Joe figures and vehicles (like the VAMP, Fang, Mobat, Steeler, Stalker and Snake Eyes to name a few), most of the characters were made from 5 POA figures. These were divided into several sub-teams like SAS (Special Ops) and Z-Force (Infantry).

Tracker was part of the Z-Force’s sapper (combat engineer). My version is a pretty straight forward re-do of the original. Finding parts that had similar characteristics was not all that difficult and the recipe came together rather quickly. I’m not crazy about the head and that may get updated sometime in the future.

This was one of the first customs that I finished for Resurgence 3 (2016). Tracker was slotted to be a ''mail away'' for our mock toy line. Plans changed and I pulled him out of the project. After that, I kind of forgot about him until I started building other Action Force customs.
